    I have downloaded the CN North America NT 2011.40 unlocked from a different site.
    Loaded on a SD card and works perfectly.
    With the download came a new gmapbmap.img (basemap) and a gmaptz.img ( time zone).
    The gmapbmap.img is huge 49,824 KB. I'm wondering if it safe to load this file on my Nuvi 680.
    My basemap file is only 6,056 KB
    The last time I tried to update the basemap I got a failled message when I did a diagnostics check.
    Of course I backed up all my files so I just copied the old one back, did a test and it passed.

    I'm curious to know why this basemap file was included with the new map. Any thoughts or suggestions if I should install the file.

    I'm wondering the same thing. However, I don't think it's necessary to update it as the actual map overlays it.

    Update on the 49,824 KB basemap file.
    I went ahead and deleted the old 6,056 kb gmapbmap.img (backed up), and installed the new one (49,824 KB).
    Unlike my previous failure in the diagnostics mode, this new basemap file passed.
    I will keep it on there for now unless it slows down my device as catymag suggested.
    I may be wrong but I don't think it will slow down since the primary map (2011.40) is what the device will use.

    The main advantage of having a basemap is that once you pass a certain zoom level the basemap is used instead of your detailed maps which allows for quicker drawing on the device and it can be used at high zoom levels and in areas for which you may not have detailed maps.
    A basemap is to allow browsing big areas. detailed maps aren't prepared for this task, with big zooms, device switches to basemap. without it everything will work very slow.
    DEM basemaps are bigger because they contains shadings, many users use new basemaps but with DEM removed with GmapTool ,eg. old Garmin units and Phones

    Sadly catymag, you've become one of those mods who eventually got caught up in your little box that you just can't see outside of it. Over the years, you were never this way. Your provided details and instructions with your initial posts. Then you just posted the downloads what seems to be just for the sake of it and you were done with it. Your help seems to be to refer people to other threads. That in my opinion is not what a mod who actively participates in the forums should do. I feel you've become very set in your ways because you have the support of those who are like you. I used to really enjoy coming here then the site...at least the Garmin section slowly but surely became eroded. I see this site is in need of moderators, I guess they're desperate. IMO. Maybe it's time for you to be the Catymag I once knew or perhaps you should step aside? I don't think your heart in this mod business like it once was. Like another poster commented, this site is for people who know what to do...and what wasn't said, think like you. Pity.

    BTW, when I transferred my newly created image file from Mapsource onto my device, I got an error message saying "cant unlock maps". I even tried using Jetmouse to create an unlock code.....no dice. Thanks for the effort you put into this thread. Your only effort seems to be in adding download links and telling people where to go....very useful info...not.
    freedownload would be easier to use than jdownloader, would have to watch this new downloader auto
