    Default Could I ever replace the gmapprom.img or the gmapbmap.img

    Alot of the update files recommend uploading it as a gmapsupp.img, but what about the original gmapprom.img & gmapbmap.img files. Would they ever get updated?

    Could I ever replace the gmapprom.img or the gmapbmap.img

    I'm just curious. I currently have a USA / Garmin 765T

    They are just names you put what name you want GMAPSUPP GMAPProm etc
    As for the GMAPBMAP you should be using the latest Autoroute DEM Basemap NR 5.00

    The rest is choice yours

    This is the wrong section for this question also, read the help files/ forum suggestions

    Moved to Tutorials & Discussions thread

    Your original detailed map on device could be named gmapoem.img, gmapprom.img or gmapsupp.img, you could rename update map same as original and you will replace original, so you will have "updated" map on device
    If your original map is gmapprom.img and and you copy your updated map on device as gmapsupp.img, you will have two maps of same region on device.

    DEM info in basemaps is changing because of possible errors in previous releases and some regions could get better coverage, just like in detailed maps
