    thumbup No map display

    Hi there,

    I have a problem with the map display on my Nuvi Nulink 1695.

    It seems like everything is working fine, like firmware, I have the latest map installed (checked in settings, map is activated as well). I just don't see anything in the map view, it is all blank where the map should be!

    If I want to navigate to an address, all the street names are known and even a route is calculated and shown! On a blank background..

    On top of that I do notice that there's only one map style to chose from ('Garmin') instead of a couple like it used to be. Also the Qwerty keyboard option has disappeared from the menu, it's an ABC now.

    I fixed my firmware with the tool from this forum and everything worked great. Installed the latest firmware and reinstalled the map several times, but to no help.

    Has anyone any ideas?? I hope so! I'd like to start using my Garmin again!

    Do you have a basemap in Nuvi ?
    Have you tried to hard reset it ?

    Thank you for your reply! Sorry mine is so late. I thought I'd get a notification if someone would reply to my question, but I guess I didn't.

    I will investigate and let you guys know. I'll have to read up on this base map, never heard of that before and doesn't know how to check if it's installed or not.

    Run WebUpdater too to ensure you replace any missing files such as Keyboards.

    It looks like I'm missing the base map. I don't see the mentioned file in the .system folder. Is it possible to download the base map somewhere? And are there different versions per region or is it one file for the whole world? (I only have Europe maps on my device)

    I did already try to hard reset the device, to no avail.

    Also I'm thinking maybe I'm missing themes (since they determine the map colors, right?), but I can't find where to download themes. I don't see any showing up in Webupdater.

    Never mind, I see Catymag posted a link to the basemap. Thanks!! I'll keep you posted about any progress.

    The map works again, thank you guys so much! I downloaded and copied the basemap file, then updated the map with Webupdater and updated the device with Garmin Express. This also restored the map themes.

    The only thing still missing on the device is the Qwerty keyboard, only the abc option is available in the menu. Does anyone have any idea to fix this? Other than that, the device seems to be perfect again. Thank you again!!

    Check the setting under: Tools>Settings>System>Keyboard Layout. You have the choice of 'ABCDE' or 'QWERTY'. Were you offered any Keyboard files with WU or GE?

    Hi Neil, in your mentioned menu setting, I only have ABC available.
    Some language-kind-of-files were downloaded with WU and GE, but I don't think any of them mentioned keyboard.
