    No, I didn't think to do that. I'll try it.

    However, last night I was using this map and I am not sure if my GPS was going crazy or the map has major errors, but it was trying to re-route me on a wild geese chase for hundreds of miles.
    Maybe I need to try another map, besides the one from the torrent.

    Please don't think i'm anti-torrent [i'm not], but i have had a very high proportion of faulty/corrupt files via torrent compared to direct links. Best to dl MS versions or locked images from a fast non-commercial site and you have less chance of a problem. I would do exactly what you said and dl again from another source, but first try a hard reset or clear NV on your unit to see if it stops it 'going crazy'.

    I'm using Garmin Mobile XT on my GPS. It has a limit for a img file of 2 GB. Is there an unl img file smaller than 2 GB here? Or should I create my own from the mapsource?

    I just replied in another forum. Answer is the same.
    All North American IMG files for 2014.1 are less than 2 gig

    The full NA image is 1.8665771484375 GiB [2,004,221,952 Bytes] (informally GB is used instead of GiB and it's confusing but we all do it, but 1 GB simply does not equal 1 GiB)

    Definitive answer, the full NA 2014.10 image is 2.004221952 GB [gigibytes] or 1.8665771484375 GiB [gibibytes]. The image size limit for GMXT/GMPC and also some older Garmin units is under 2 GiB which is the same for FAT16 file size limit, and 1 Gib is actually 1.073741824 GB. This is the very same reason why your so-called 32 GB media card/usb stick is actually shown by Windows as 29.8 GB. It's a 'mirrors & cigar smoke' trick by the hard drive & flash drive manufacturers to hoodwink us into thinking we are getting more bytes for our money.

    I finally solve my issue with jcv not working. DL the map file from post #3 (BamBam) and that works fine on all my devices. Maybe it was a corrupted file or something...

    Or maybe it was... vodoo magic We will never know.

    Seriously, sorry for the messed thread, it was weird that map was apparently working and nobody else complained. You can delete my posts.

    Note by catymag: No need to delete, on the contrary it's a good info for other users as Neil wrote in the following post
