    Default Disable Nuvi Map Update Message

    Could someone point me to any method to disable the Map Update startup prompt, as I am using some community maps but not their official maps.

    Thank you in advance

    I think this means that your map is at least one year old, maybe there really are updates? Community maps change often.
    If you have map in Mapsource, then you can try to send it again to nuvi.

    I was never able to test that kind of problem. My first try would be to load img form nuvi to gmaptool and to refresh img header, this is option on "Write" tab of program, mark checkbox "Refresh header date", leave date fields empty and click "Write all".
    Thanks, Kanopus

    The pesky message "Your Maps Are Out Of Date"

    This utility should help: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Use it as follows:
    1) Fully boot your device.
    2) Press the battery icon until an engineering menu appears
    3) Connect the device to PC
    4) run start.bat by double clicking it

    In case of success the utility will print a text similar to the following:

    Code:
    M:\WORK\GARMIN\[UTILS]\mupd-clr\Release>mupd-clr.exe
    map update message remover v0.1 by kunix
    Initializing USB...
    hwid = 596
    swvr = 490
    name = n№vi 670 Software Version 4.90

    Initializing USB once again...
    removing the map update message...
    all done

    M:\WORK\GARMIN\[UTILS]\mupd-clr\Release>pause
    Press any key to continue . . .

    Tried it but no luck.

    The start batch executed with some SetupInDev error after the Initializing USB line.

    On the enginnering menu, the USB cable is shown not connected, although under normal mode I could read Garmin drive etc.

    Any clues ?

    I am using Nuvi765 with Windows 7.

    You can access it in mass storage mode with a bare Windows installation. But engineering mode requires installing the drivers mentioned above.

    This is where things fall over for me: to connect to the PC I have to open the battery door, which switches it back into "Close the door" mode. When I connect the cable it goes straight to mass storage mode.

    How do I get it to stay on when I open the door?

    What device do you own? That tp2168 quote of my post is valid mainly for nuvis. The battery icon is inside the red circle:
