    Default Strange thing when Unlocking 24k TOPO

    I have a Montana 650t and have D/L the 24kTOPO Mid-Atlantic that SkyGear had placed on TPB.

    I ran the IMG using FIU and assumed it should/would remove all locking on the IMG.

    Then I copied the unlocked IMG to my Montana, but kept getting a message "Can't Unlock Maps" on the Montana.

    I tried it a couple of times thinking I may have made an error, but nope, I did it correctly with the same error message.

    Any Ideas? Do I still need to generate some sort of UNL file or somehting else ?

    Thanks.

    As far as I am concerned Topo maps shouldn't be locked, just copy the img file to your unit and it should work as is

    I Think the 24k TOPO maps come in either a DVD or on an MicroSD card.

    The one on the MircoSD card are locked to the card I believe.


    So it may depend on which IMG you are dealing with.

    I tried several times and kept getting "Can't Unlock Maps"... even after using FIU.

    I D/L the 24k TOPO from TPB again and ran it thru FIU... and now it's working.

    So maybe one IMG was from a DVD and the other was from an SD Card.

    In any event, for right now... I'm good.
