    Default Unlock 64MB StreetPilot III data card for use in eMap?

    I have a 64MB data card from an old broken StreetPilot III that I would like to use in my even older eMap. But the card was locked for use only in the StreetPilot III. I get an error message like that when I put it in the eMap and turn it on.

    I have a USB data card reader, and Mapsource is able to see the card in the reader. Does anyone know if it's possible to unlock the card so I could use it in the eMap?

    Mexico GPS Atlas 2012 maps can still be used on older GPS units
    these maps are non-NT.

    I can't get many maps on the Emap's tiny internal memory. I need to figure out if there's a way to make my 64MB data key (the old type, not the new SD type) unlocked so I can use it in my eMap as I wrote above.

    Anyone have any ideas? ..Thx

    Do you have a map in the card that you want to use in the "new" gps or do you just want to transfer a new map to the card?
    If the second case you just have to unlock the map in Mapsource and transfer it to the card. It will overwrite the old map in the card.
    I do not know if it is possible to transfer the map from the card to Mapsource, have never tried that though I have the old type of memory card in my gpsmap 176 and 276C gps.
    If you can transfer the map from the card to Mapsource, then it should be possible to unlock it and re-transfer it to the card.
    Info on how to unlock can be found in the forum, see the Sticky posts!

    There are maps loaded on the card from when I was using it in my old Streetpilot III, and using MapSource City Navigator. But I now would like to use the card in my even older eMap that isn't recognized by MapSource City Navigator. The eMap used MetroGuide North America to load maps onto it, but I don't know if that software will be able to recognize the data card with maps loaded from MapSource City Navigator.

    Like the person who posted that thread, I too have an older data card, not an SD memory card. Seems he may have been able to get maps off his card with sendmap. But I don't know if sendmap would load maps onto the old data card.

    I do not think that it is the card that is locked but rather the old map on the card.
    Why do you not just download a new map to Mapsource and then transfer the part of your interest to the card? The old map will be overwritten but does that matter?
    Since the card is so small you still will have to transfer the small part needed every time you make a longer trip somewhere :Animated 89:

    Okay... I was able to transfer a couple map segments to the data card with Mapsource. And when I put the card in the eMap and started it, I didn't get the error message about the card being locked as I had before. But the 'Mapsource' menus on the eMap are still grayed out and not highlighted. So the GPS isn't seeing the data on the card. When I zoom into the area of the map where I'd put data onto the card, there's no detail.

    My other problem is that Mapsource doesn't see the eMap connected to the serial port. MS Streets & Trips does. But Mapsource only recognizes the data card reader I successfully got working with the eMap's old USB drivers. But if I could get the eMap to recognize the maps I can put on the data card, that wouldn't be a problem.
