    Newbie here... followed the directions precisely (or so I thought). Downloaded, unlocked, moved .img file to the Garmin dir of my GPS with all of my other .img files, but when I go to enable/disable the map it's not there on the list. All the other maps I have are there though. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    I have the 62s and left the file name as is: US_GarminLakes_Full.img. I also tried to rename it to GarminLakes, but that still didn't work

    I'll load to my 62 and post result, have you copied it in internal memory or in sd ?

    Edit: I unlocked it with Fast IMG Unlocker ,loaded in my 62 :
    sd/ Garmin/US_GarminLakes_Full.img
    and it's selectable in Maps list and working fine.

    I had initially put the file onto the SD card, but thought I would try copying it over to internal memory as well. Even though i have have two copies of the same file now (internal and SD), the result is one of those files is now currently working. I'm not sure what happened, but it now works.

    Probably in internal memory 62 doesnt support anyname.img, it's always better to copy unlocked maps in sd, if something goes wrong you dont brick your gps.

    How many maps do you have stored in your GPSmap 62s?
    There's limits of the number of MapIDs (approx. max up to 18) and map tiles that can be used.

    If you have a problem with unlocking the map then you should see a message about that while the unit boots.

    That's what I was thinking as well, but figured I had tried everything else, I might as well try putting the file internal... and what do you know, it works.

    The Garmin Lakes file brought my count up to about 13 or 14... and as of yet, I haven't seen that message. So, I knew it was unlocked, just couldn't figure out why it wasn't showing in the list. Right now, the GarminLakes file is the only map I have internal, the rest are on SD.

    Hi Ballebar.

    I never knew about the limitation on the number of ID's on the Garmins.

    Does it apply equally for all the Garmin units, or does it vary from model to model ?

    I have several, but mostly ask about the Handheld units.. Montana 650, 76CSx, 62st, 78sc, 450t.

    Thanks
