Guess I'll hope Tech Support can reload those remotely as Hannah has suggested. Well, since you seem to be missing the file which is the pre-installed detail map file and since you don't have a backup file, Tech Support is your only option.
They will likely have to send you a disk with the maps for you to reload them.
I may have neglected to mention that the nuvi was purchased this past fall, Nov 22,2007 to be exact, so less than 4 months old, so hopefully tech support will look on that favourably too.
H Hannah, I like the idea of 'remote tech' assistance from Garmin as you suggested.
I have update 5130 05.51 to 5.71I think it is DSP4,because there is zero at start of version.
Hi folks..per subject, I can't run my nuvi250w immediately after downloading new POI's from this site. Can this thing be reset using the little hidden button on the bottom or do i need to go to Garmin site and try to download my maps. When the unit goes thru it's nornal startup, it displays the "loading maps" at the bottom of the screen after which it then says it has no detailed maps and can't run.
They have been great about all my calls over the last 4 years. They are the best tech support I have ever come across for anything.

Shortly after I reported this issue online here, I also sent an email to Garmin tech support for ideas. Thanks everyone for all your great offers of assistance..appreciated to know there is such a great community out there.
I have deleted the new POI's but that didn't help..thanks for the suggestion though.
The link you provided, I've already been to..help either. A lot of people including me have gotten the disk for free so I would not give up on the first try. Enter your 25 digit unlock code (without the hyphens) in this file and reboot. If it doesn't - it would because either a) the code's wrong or b) the map file is not called GMAPPROM. UNL file in situ and stopped doing it for some reason.
