    I see the problem now. You can't 'import' image files to the computer HDD itself as such. BaseCamp & HomePort can use them if they are already loaded to a unit which is connected to the PC, or similarly on a connected media card or USB flash drive [x:\Garmin\*.img], or on a virtual SD in Garmin folder: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Thanks again for the help.
    After unzipping the file is MS=0 but after loading using IMDisk it still says no unlocked maps on device. I did convert it to a 10GB file? but it is now just 3.??GB

    Agggghhhh! Don't treat a Garmin img file that way. It's a Garmin proprietary file format, not a 'normal' img file at all. Don't do anything with it after decompressing it, only unlock it. If you don't have a Garmin device, just put the *.img file [name it gmapsupp.img, that ALWAYS works] in a Garmin folder on a card, usb stick or virtual SD as i said.

    I see what the problem was now, listening to a JW drinker

    Woke up, clean install and extract and put on USB drive and worked like a dream in minutes

    Thanks for your help
