    Default I need to convert .img files to Garmin Mapsource or Home port readable file. PLEASE HELP

    I have .IMG files for Southwest Caribbean that I downloaded from this site and I am unable to convert the .img file to read in Homeport or on my Garmin 440S. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I had a conversion tool about a year ago that I am unable to find that converted the .img file to a readable Garmin file.


    Thank you

    @floridafishing

    You already have an IMG-file in the correct format (e.g. Garmin propriety IMG map container format, not a disc image that some believes).
    HomePort reads the file from a connected Garmin unit, memory card or a USB-stick. Just copy the file as "[USB mass storage device]:\Garmin\gmapsupp.img".
    The same goes for your Garmin GPSMAP 440s, just copy as "[SD card]:\Garmin\gmapsupp.img" and put the SD card in the unit.

    Here I have HomePort with a microSDHC card as drive "L:" and the map stored at "L:\Garmin\gmapsupp.img":

    Now this is what happens - I am able to open in Homeport and see the map but when I take the card, install in my GPS 440s and power the unit on I get a message stating that the maps are locked. How do I unlock the maps?

    Thank you

    Look at Garmin soft and tool section sticky thread and search for an unlocker
