    Easy to know it with Gmaptool or Imgtool.

    hi sorry so many messages.
    i've tried this.
    i input the jcv file into the jcv folder of the internal garming memory
    then rename the gmapprom to gmapprom1 and input to the garmin memory
    is this correct?

    @CivicRacer
    Your unit can read a map "<any_name>.img" put in either Map folder of unit or microSD card [latter option is better for unlocked maps]. e.g.: "x:\Map\Philippines.img" and "x:\Garmin\JVC\*.jcv" will work fine and is much safer than putting the files on internal memory [that way if they cause a problem, you can just remove the card].

    @neil
    thanks neil
    will do that. but yes, adding the image does it. it works
    i'll try to move the files to my sd card later.
    btw will it works with another map that is on my sd card? (eg sd:\garmin\gmapsupp)? sorry

    Yes, it won't interfere with gmapsupp.img in Garmin folder and also you can have multiple 'anyname' maps [within reason] in Map folder.
