    Hello Giomen. What do you mean? Deleting all img files from the SD? And not leaving any img file on it?

    These are the map files that are in the garmin folder:
    gmapbmap.img, gmapprom.img, Gmapprom.unl & gmaptz.img

    Should I remove all of them and see what happens?

    Thank you

    Thank you, very much for your help.
    Some ways:
    1. Find a friend with a Nuvi: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    2. Have you got an Android phone? Google 'SD Tools' or get it from Google Play. It will give you the CID in hex and then you convert to decimal:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    3. Got an old Symbian phone running s60 - S^3? Even without a sim card you can load GMXT and get the CID: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    4. Got a PDA running Wince6? Try this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    The first method is the easiest of course, but any port in a storm.

    Were you game to try what I suggested to you earlier in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in the thread 'How to get your sd card id in your garmin device'? i.e.:

    If you are prepared to take the risk, you could back up the 3 files gmapprom.img and its associated unl & gma, then remove them from your original card and copy a new unlocked map as gmapprom.img. The unit should still recognise the sd card id and the unlocked map will work on both the sd card and therefore the unit. Again, my conjecture, but if that doesn't work you should be able to copy the original map image with its unl and gma files back successfully....

    Try to unlock Mexico with gimgunlock0.3 and add it on original SD card like @Neil wrote and tell us if this method work.

    What would be the risks of modifying the original SD card contents? It came with the "lock" switch on, and I really don't want to end up with a "dead" unit. Maybe exploring all the options using a copy would be the safest ?
    I'll try to find a way to get the SD Card ID using one of Neil's suggestions.
    Thanks to all, I REALLY appreciate all your help and suggestions, and am willing to explore all of them

    If modifying the original card's content is safe, would it be easier to have a new version of the map and then change it so that its name, unlock code and everything is the same as the factory installed one, and just replace that img file, leaving the unl and everything else intact?

    The .unl depends on .img FID so old one not only is useless ,but it would give a false information to your device, same for the .gma. So with a different map ,and especially if it's unlocked ,it must be removed.
    Check if the map is unlocked , if not ,unlock it and replace the old one after having backupped it along .unl and .gma in your pc.
    If sd ask for a pass try to add the sw.unl for the sd ID ,I've read in the net it works in Honda units, it's similar to unlock GMXT

    Ok, So I got a hold of an Android device and got the CID of the SD Card (The new copy, not the factory installed one): 02544d5341303247029c00692a0085e4
    I then converted it to decimal: 129315234252085820000
    But that's too many digits to enter in the Garmin Unlock (it only takes 10)

    Am I doing something wrong? I'm attaching the info I got from the SD Card

    CID is 02544d534130324702 9c00692a 0085e4
    The part in the middle is the serial :9c00692a
    Serial is ID 9c00692a
    You can see it directly on picture as serial :0x9c00692a
    change to dec ,ID should be:
    2617272618

    On Andoid use File Explorer and browse to:
    /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:xxxx
    CID is in mmc1:xxxx

    Maybe this will help
    Watch this video tutorials and try to find the serial number of the card:

    Well, I couldn't make the unit to work with a SD card different than the factory installed one (I tried all the suggestions here, but couldn't make it work), so I finally decided to take the lock switch off on the original factory card and add an unlocked map as gmapsupp.img, as well as some vehicle images. It worked!!! I'm now using a 2013.2 map and have some different vehicles to select.

    Thank you everyone, I really appreciate all of your help and suggestions. I learned that this forum has some real smart and helpful people, as well as learned a lot from the Garmin system, thanks to you!

    PS: Does anyone know where I can get a voice file (.vpm) that is in latin american spanish? (Or Mexican Spanish) The one that comes with the card is in Spain Spanish and is a little annoying.

    Thank you VERY MUCH!! :D
