    Could someone can help me ?
    My nuvi 255 can't start after the firmware update from 7.50 to 7.60 .Message is "no detailed maps found that support routing .the nuvi cannot be used without them".

    For info :
    - internal memory is empty .
    - i use a 4gb micro SD card with map western europe NT 2012.40 unlocked .

    If it's possible , i need a step by step tutorial .
    Thanks in advance

    For start of device put your finger on "no detailed maps found that support routing .the nuvi cannot be used without them" Message and wait a little.

    But it is not fact that maps will be found.

    Do you mean by 'internal memory is empty' that you have no maps on the unit? If so, try this:
    Remove sd
    Hard reset nuvi
    Put any small routable detail map in unit with the basemap
    Power down nuvi
    Replace sd
    Power up nuvi.
