    Default 1390 LMT - limited map

    I have purchased from ebay a 1390LMT. It came from California, with 'West' map. The previous owner de-registered it and I registered it in my name. However, even after I added a 4GB microSD, it still won't update with full NA maps. Now Garmin Express is offering me as 'update' the new 'West' map.

    Besides using unlocked maps, is there a way to 'reset' the device to receive full NA maps?

    Hi

    Try mapupdater instead in this program, can you select the entire map or regions

    Ahhh, I see now that the LMT is only for lower 48 US states and Canada.

    Just use MapInstall to add Mexico [and whatever else you want as an additional img] from a gmap folder of full NA onto an sd. It doesn't even matter if you have overlapping tiles to your unit's LM map provided they are the same version.
