    Hi Folks, just updated my Oregon 300 through Garmin Express, since then my road maps uk & Europe are no longer
    recognised ? does anyone know how to find the spanner in the works ? have used it with no problem for the last
    three years without a problem ,,, Just says no navigable maps or routes !!
    Many thanks Mack...

    If you use Garmin Basecamp while the Oregon is connected to the computer, it will take a copy of the maps on the Oregon and place it on the computer, from there the maps can be copied back to the Oregon using Basecamp

    The copying is done by Basecamp, so the maps won't be on your computer, you could install Bascamp on a computer now and connect your Oregon to see if Bascamp can 'see' the maps on the Oregon (they could be just disabled), it's worth a try and if Bascamp copies the maps to the computer, then sending them back to the Oregon may re-activate them

    Hi Speed 210, yes thanks tried that ! still no go even though I have an SD 16gig card sat in the Oregon !! it still will
    not read the SD card for some reason ? and it only happened after I plugged it in to Garmin Express
    to update Firmware etc .. The original card before updates & a new card I have tried and both are
    not being read in the device or Basecamp !!
    Could you suggest any part of the Oregon 300 I have over looked that needs to be energised etc ?

    Many thanks Mack....

    I would try a Master Reset on the Oregon 300

    NOTE : This will erase all user data (but not maps) so make backups

    With the unit off touch and hold the top left hand corner of the screen, while holding turn unit on, keep holding the screen until a 'Do you want to erase all data Y/N' message is displayed *, select yes, you may need to try this a few times before getting the message

    * Sometimes a display brightness screen is displayed before the erase screen, you can remove 'hold' when either screen is displayed

    Master Reset reference link
