    Default Problem unlocking VEU708L with gimgunlock v0.01 and use unlocked chart in a Garmin GPSMAP 525S

    So when you use this you don't need any UNL file? Because I have unlocked the Vision g2 map for North-Norway with gimgunlock v0.01 , but my Garmin 525S is not finding the map. Here is a screenshot:

    WAZc3


    The file name have the correct name, and I've renamed the folder too. Since it didn't work I checked the map in the Garmin Homeport, and it does indeed find the map:

    u0bNu

    So what have I done wrong? I really need help now, because I've tried everything. I have also used GMapTool too see if the map is unlocked, here is GMapTool screenshot:

    I just used Garmin HomePort to verify that the map was working, it does work on my computer, but my Garmin 525S is not reading/finding it.

    As you know Homeport can view locked maps so if it's not showing in your GPSMAP 525S the most likely answer is that the map has not been fully unlocked for some reason. If that vision g2 has a lower than 2200 FID/MID (i think it's 314 for VEU708L, maybe?) you can create an unl code for it with JM anyway.

    But then I'll need the SD Card ID, and I never found out how I should get it, got more confused the more I read about the many different ways to find it. :S
    So to get the SD Card ID I just power on my Garmin 525S with a non working map (not fully unlocked) and do what?

    Sorry, no access to a 525S or similar to check, but with most garmins if you use the unit ID for the img on an sd it will work, but only in that specific unit. Try it.

    So I found my Garmin ID number in systeminformation, used it in JetMouse to make the UNL file. Still not showing up when I insert the card into my Garmin. :S
    EDIT: I'm now downloading the map found on this site instead, in hope of getting it to work.

    EDIT2: I downloaded the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] from another source, used the "old" method with UNL file, and it's still not showing up...

    1. Are you getting a message "Can't Unlock Map" when you start the unit, or do you mean there's no such message and it's just not showing in the chart list?

    2. Are you using an SD card that the unit is not capable of reading? Update firmware and/or use a smaller/slower card.
