    Question No unlockable maps to install - nuvi200

    I have the unlocked mapsets: Sub Sahara Africa 2012, SA Topgraphic 2010 and t4A downloaded and installed in the newest release from Basecamp all the maps show up in the manage map products and is unlocked.

    I have an etrex20 with the maps set on the unit and is fully fuctional.
    the problem is....
    I have a nuvi200 and want to install the streetmap to this unit, but when I select the option to install the specific mapset to the unit none of the maps appear in the window,,it say's that there are no unlocked maps available to be installed...

    How do I install the streetmap to the uniit?

    Reading the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is always the best place to start, particularly maybe [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Giving more info on how you're trying to install them would be good to. Read the tuts and if you still are stuck, post again. For instance, are you using a patched version of BaseCamp/MapInstall to load the images to your 200. If the maps are unlocked only for another unit they won't be available otherwise.

    The mapsets is the unlocked one's that I have downloaded from this website, so there is no need for me to drop them in .img unlocker and basecamp is the the patched version,...it was easy to use the maps on the etrex20 as you just copy and paste the .img file to the etrex20 and it works flawlessly.

    I thought it would be the same as for the nuvi200 but the internal memory of the nuivi200 is to small to paste the .img file thus I have to install the streetmap set through basecamp...but like said it does not show me the available mapsets to be installed .

    I even then checked it with the etrex and it gave me the same window that there are no unlocked maps to be installed...

    How do I get the the streetmap to show up as a unlocked mapset in the window for it to be installed to the nuvi200.

    Use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to unlock gmap folders, only use an '.img unlocker' such as gimgunlock for already compiled images. Both BaseCamp and MapInstall should be patched.

    Seeing you have the unlocked images working in the etrex, it might be easiest for you to just simply do this if at least one map image will fit on the internal memory: Get an SD card big enough to hold the other two maps images. Copy one as gmapsupp.img and the other as gmapsup1.img and place them in a Garmin folder on the SD and just use that in your nuvi 200. All series 2xx can use 2 maps named like that with recent firmware. Check that you are running version 5.10 fw on it, if it's V5.00 or earlier then upgrade it with WebUpdater or GarminExpress, or just get it here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    If you want to keep trying with BaseCamp/MapInstall and you have MI patched as well, try adding a JM generated code for unlock regions in manage maps as Unit ID 1 for the troublesome maps and then try sending a short-cut map image which you may then have to unlock with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. I'm not at all convinced that your gmap folders are fully unlocked in this case. 'Unlocked' status in BC & MI means unlocked for use in the software only, 'Not Lockable' or 'Unauthenticated' means 'fully unlocked' or 'unlocked but still GMA protected' respectively.

    Use SD card - it support two mapset with name gmapsupp.img and gmapsup1.img. Only these two name is available! Rename mapset and copy to SD card...
    P.S. On internal device memory you can use only next three name: gmapprom.img, gmapprom1.img and gmapsupp.img.
