    How about Hebrew voice? They now have certain models that have the Hebrew voice even for Street names.

    Can someone please help a total noob (first post too). I have a nuvi 1250. I downloaded the file listing in the 1st post, unrared and got a 19.856 meg file called gmapsupp.img.

    I then:
    1. Downloaded the GarminUnlockerAlternative_v2.4 file
    2. I unrared and and read the readme file and followed the directions to place the img file in the "locked" folder.
    3. I ran the Unlock Map Directory.exe file
    4. I got an error saying:

    "something is wrong Unlocked MAP not created
    Source IMG file must be in directory named: MAP Locked
    Only one source IMG file same time in directory named: Map Locked"

    Not sure why since I only have the one img source in that folder.

    Can anyone help? I'm stuck and can't use it like this. Maybe I missed a step? The maps on my old GPS are now so out of date they are worthless. I specifically bought the Nuvi to work with this (though am tempted to upgrade to the 1260 to get the bluetooth feature). But the nuvi is worthless to me if i can't get these maps to work. Thank you!

    The files that you get from links in post #1 are already UNLOCKED. No need to trying some unlocker again.

    unlocked IMG
    copy in a garmin directory
    but this will need a font update from Garmin available for Nuvi 7xx and 1xxx series

    modified version to work in english

    Thanks. So what else am I doing wrong because when I drop this file into my Garmin system folder and then try to use the Garmin, I see no change whatsoever. When I click "go to map" I only see US map. I don't see any option to get an Israel map.

    From other google searches I found references to using a special app to install maps and something called a webupdater to change the firmware but they did not go into any details at all - as if I should already know where to find this app and what to do with it. Any step by step instructions for noobs? Thanks so much, if I can't get this to work, I'll have to return the gps while I still can.

    in your device ,in system folder you should have a map folder, copy it inside but before read here

    I already saw that thread and I can view my system folder. But there is no folder called "maps." I see 5 file folders called:

    Diag
    EULA
    ExtData
    RemoteSW
    sqlite

    I then see the following files listed underneath the folders (not within the folders, just the list tree under "system"):

    006D135900.gpi (GPI File)
    fs_image.ver (VER File)
    gmapbmap.img (Disc Image File)
    gmapbmap.sum (SUM File)
    gmapprom.img (Disc Image File)
    gmapprom.sum (SUM File)
    gmaptz.img (Disc Image File)
    gmaptz.sum (SUM File)
    Locales.xml (XML Document)
    TrafficProvider.xml (XML Document)

    I tried copying and pasting the gmapsupp.img file to be with these other files but when I disconnected the garmin and turned it on, it seemed no different than before. Do I need to do something special to transfer the file over? Do I need a SUM file (whatever that is) to go along with the .img file?

    Thanks so much for your patience with me.

    I'm not so sure that gmapprom2.img would be acceptable for a nüvi as mentioned in the previous post. Try gmapprom1.img or gmapsupp.img instead.
    SUM files are just check-sum data calculated when the unit uses the diagnostics mode.

    The normal map IMG files to use:
    • gmapoem.img - Mostly for OEM data with customized POIs for the OEM reseller
    • gmapbmap.img - Basemap
    • gmapprom.img - Preinstalled map
    • gmapprom1.img - Second preinstalled map
    • gmapsupp.img - Supplementary map
    • gmapsup2.img - Second supplementary map
    • gmaptz.img - Time zones
    • gmap3d.img - 3D buildings primary map (only compatible units)
    • gmap3d1.img - 3D buildings secondary map (only compatible units)
