    My theory is that garmin is transitioning all their gps firmware for full or partial compatibility with Unicode maps. It's costing them a lot of time and money to bring out a Unicode and nonunicode versions of every map.

    I read that each firmware edition for the 1xxx series had better compatibility than previous firmware that suggests that garmin is trying to bring all their gps devices into Unicode compliance. Probably within a year or so this will all be history.

    I wonder if the increased compatibility is more to do with changes to the mapping than to the firmware? 13xx/14xx has not been updated since 27 Nov 2012, version 6.20, yet anecdotally in the last year or so there appears to have been progressively less reported problems using unicode mapping in older units, and especially in reports about 1xxx.

    Even Garmin seems to be a little confused about unicode EU and 1xxx. I had an interesting series of conflicting events only yesterday updating a new UK 1340 for it's oneoff numap guarantee. I took some screenshots because it was being offered both unicode AND non-U updates. Not home at present so i'll post them later.

    @ max_clif

    If you like to try if locales is problem then you need to hard reset nuvi and set Country to Russian or some other country, if you change only keyboard this is not enough.

    Some Country have some extra feature that other don't have, i forget correct country but if you set correct country you will see in uper corner name of street that you drive on, but if you hav set other country you have in uper corner writen next street instead of street that you drive on.

    I hope that Neil will tell you what country is that show street that you drive on.

    I've a Montana 600. Downloaded the locked Mapsource version. Installed but I must did something wrong because Protected Garmin File Toolkit v.2.2.5.4 says it's unlocked (and Mapsource can display the map) but when I select part of the map and send it to GPS trough Mapsource Montana says it can't unlock the map.

    Help please.

    Thanks

    The gmap folder is probably only unlocked just for use in MS. Unlock the image with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Tests on a US 1450 in AU only result in the blue banner/round sli for locale Luxembourg/Belgium/UK instead of default AU/US locale green banner/rectangular sli difference. Otherwise the same features, driving while navigating shows upcoming name for next turn and driving without navigating shows current name in top banner.
