    Hi,
    All map files should have extension .img, so file name should be gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img, and on Nuvi 1xxx it should be on device in hidden folder System and on SD in hidden folder Map
    NO THANKS POSTS ALLOWED, NO LIKES NEEDED, ALL MIRRORS APPRECIATED

    I appreciate your reply Midnight Blues - it was certainly intended to be more helpful than the previous poster - but in the meantime I have had the opportunity to do my own experimentation.
    I must point out that the Nuvi 1490T to which I refer was purchased by me in the UK in July 2009 so it came pre-loaded with the UK/Western Europe maps.

    In order to get these maps installed in the 1490T device, you firstly have to rename the downloaded, unlocked .img file "gmapsupp" (without the inverted commas).

    When the unit is connected to a PC and the "Nuvi" folder has been opened, look for a folder named "Map" (without the commas) - if it is not present just create it.
    I must emphasise that this folder does not, and should not, exist in the hidden "system" folders - these folders contain the pre-loaded basemaps that the unit was sold with and are not named "gmapsupp" files.

    Copy and paste the re-named .img file to this folder and remove your device from your PC - if there are already any "gmapsupp" mapfiles in that folder then it would be advisable to remove them to a back-up to avoid any conflicts - you can always replace them later.

    Hey Presto! - it all works fine.

    Just make sure that when you next start your device you go to Tools/Settings/Map/Info and ensure that only your chosen maps are ticked.

    Before any "more knowledgable" poster tries to tell me it can't work etc., I emphasise that this has worked 100% for me today.

    The only qualification is that I am referring to a Garmin Nuvi 1490T satnav device - it's quite possible that this technique will not be appropriate for a different model.

    I really hope this helps some members - I will post further when I've experimented with installing these maps onto a MicroSD card for the 1490T.

    Regards,

    Shootist.

    See, I point you in the right direction and you make advances on your own, that I like.

    I have said it before on here and now I say it for the last time

    All 13** and 14** models plus the new Zumo 220 which I have use a new method for map location

    As I said before also if you use MapSourse to send a map to these models it will create the map Directory for you ( this sould be a big clue as to changes)

    Gmapsupp works in the Map directory and on the sdcard not in the systen hidden Garmin folder ( I have said this before also)

    In the map folder you use .img yes but the nice bit is you can use any name my Thailand map is called "Thailand V10.1 Eng" " " are never used they are only to Quote Doh!

    You can call your maps names that make it easy to see what you have in the Map directory this is common sence and a nice feature of the new firmware / software on newer models.

    I you have a mind to try call your map "I don't understand what Paul said" or any thing else it will still work.

    Don't forget all the usual rules apply locked or unlocked space limit in memory etc

    I hope someone will post a sticky about the new models to save me repeating my self

    Has anyone seen a MapSource installation of this map in the wild?

    There is no offical MapSource release from ESRI Bangkok for Thailand Maps, so make your own limited version with gmaptool, or download the one provided on here

    Hello,

    I'm successfully using the v10.1 EN version with JCV downloaded from here, however the JCV shows Thai signs instead of English !! Any clue ?
    May be someone could post the right one or advise...
    P.S.: I'm using US Nuvi 765T (flashed).

    They only provide Thai signs in the JCV file.
    I tested previously to make sure there was no mistake

    Thanks Tom1807 for your comment.

    They have English version of the map, but junction views (which are important as well) are in Thai !! Well that's smart !!!

    Then why there is English JCV & Thai JCV in the 1st page of this thread !!
