    What is the difference between the following two:
    (1) D3048220A.jcv (EU 2017.10 NTU) length 405.703.989, resolution 212*234 (from post #1 above)
    (2) D2504180A.jcv (EU 2015.40 NT) length 695.915.914, resolution ???*???

    I upgraded my GPS from EU 2015.40 NT (2) to EU 2017.10 NTU (1) and noticed a worse resolution of the junction views. Then I noticed that the newer jcv file is smaller and I wonder: is it only the resolution or it has less junctions too?

    Is there a way to check how many junctions a jcv file has and what is the resolution of its junctions?
    Are there (full screen) jcv files for EU 2017.10 NTU map with higher resolution than 212*234 (D3048220A.jcv)?

    Sometimes I mix my jcv files in the JCV subdir. Is there a way to know to which img file (map) a specific jcv file is associated with or vice versa?

    Is it correct that an img file (map) is associated (=can work) with several jcv files (full screen/half screen/low-/high-resolution etc) but the jcv file of the EU 2015.40 NT (D2504180A.jcv) cannot be associated (=work together) with the EU 2017.10 NTU img file (map) even if I "cheat" by changing its file name to D3048220A.jcv?

    If you look at post n3 you'll read:
    D3048220A.jcv - LaneAssistPortraitFull for the map version posted in this thread.

    D2504180A.JCV is for City Navigator Europe NT 2015.40
    JCV LaneAssistFull for 7X5, ZUMO, 1XXX-
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    and an updated version of D25041x0A.JCV doesnt exist for NTU version.

    I upgraded my GPS from EU 2015.40 NT (2) to EU 2017.10 NTU (1) and noticed a worse resolution of the junction views. Then I noticed that the newer jcv file is smaller and I wonder: is it only the resolution or it has less junctions too?
    You must install the version your model requires, some nuvi get NT some get NTU.

    Is there a way to check how many junctions a jcv file has and what is the resolution of its junctions?

    No and it's not Hi Res or Low res. Available JCV files for the whole EU are all posted.
    Sometimes I mix my jcv files. Is there a way to know to which img file (map) a specific jcv file is associated with or vice versa?
    Just look at posts in the first page of NT and NTU versions

    Is it correct that an img file (map) can be associated with several jcv files (full screen/half screen/low-/high-resolution etc) but the jcv file of the EU 2015.40 NT (D2504180A.jcv) cannot be associated (=work together) with the EU 2017.10 NTU img file (map) even if I "cheat" by changing its file name to D3048220A.jcv?
    Every addition file is version dependant, because it contains the same MapId of its related map and cannot mix them, if you use NT jcv, gmap3d etc. with NTU wont work, if you use JCV, gmap3d etc. 2015.40 with 2016.40 map wont work.

    Caty Thanks for the info.
    Last week I updated a friend's Nuvi 1450 with EU-2017.10 NTU.
    According to your comments 1xxx series require NT version and not NTU but I did not see any problem with the NTU version installed on the Nuvi 1450 (except the lower resolution junction views)
    Can you provide some additional info to educate me(/us) or provide a link in the goldmine of GPSPower to find out by myself? :-)

    And you also mentioned "and an updated version of D25041x0A.JCV doesn't exist for NTU version"
    Do theses digits (D25041x0A) have any identification meaning?

    Thanks in advance

    PS: Please do not be so harsh and strict with the newbies. They (we) need to learn, so we study the goldmine of GPSPower and ask (sometimes silly) questions but we DO appreciate the great job you (personally you but also the other gurus) are doing on this but even when we dare to say "Thank you" you respond: "NO 'THANKS' permitted, only likes!!!" and you kill us with your follow-up: "I will not repeat it!!!"
    Personally I "avoid" to visit GPS Power because every time I do it I spend more than 24 hours on it (now it is 05:55 local time).
    CONGRATULATION for the great job !!! (and Caty, DO NOT SAY "thank you" - it is not permitted!!!)

    Using NTU on an NT device (like nüvi 1450) may result in random address search errors.

    Thanks for the link - I have been studying for about 2 hours but I am not sure if the GPSPower community has concluded which nuvis use the NTU and which the NT maps and how searching is affected (or not)
    As I have a 755T, a 1450T a 1450 and a 1490 I checked GARMIN's compatibility list for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and surprise:
    1450 is compatible
    1490 is NOT !!!
    Normally it should be 'Yes-Yes' or 'No-No' but not 'Yes-No'

    I, myself, will try to test and provide feedback to the forum here or better at the above link 'NT/NTU differences'.

    Additional info:
    In the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] compatibility both 1450 and 1490 are compatible

    In general: nüvi xx, 1xx, 2xxx and 3xxx use NTU type maps. All other nüvi's use NT type maps.

    I guess you mean 1xxx (and not 1xx as you mis-typed) are NTU compatible but I read in most of Caty's posts in the 'NT/NTU differences' link that she insists that 1xxx are NOT compatible and in addition 1450/1490 (for which I am interested in) are NOT in the compatibility list you suggested, while they appear to be NTU compatible/capable in the Garmin list for EU-NTU and TURKEY-NTU.
    I am completely confused now and I think the best is that each of us test and report back ... I am Greek and I can test in Greece ;-)

    No, he means 1xx as in nuvi 150 for instance.

    There is overwhelming evidence that 1xxx don't properly cope with some searches using Unicode maps. They aren't as trouble-prone as earlier devices i.e. all steetpilots, nuvi 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, 6xx, 7xx etc., but they will play up. If you want to roll the dice go for it, you may not find any problem but i suspect as you're using Greek characters that you'll find some.

    Thanks Neil, I think this "overwhelming evidence", has persuaded me but let me try with it as soon as I get hold of it (because I gave it back to a friend (probably with the wrong maps (i.e. NTU)) and before I upload the correct NT maps...
    After all, that's why I like this forum: a lot of people to bring you back on track (... and very fast!!!) - Many "likes"!!! ['thanks' are not permitted :-)]

    For Greeks it's very difficult to use a latin character map for searching addresses, cities etc in Greece, because it's not easy to write Greek names with latin characters.
    Special rules apply (ISO 843=[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) and Here (NT/NTU maps provider) is using these standards.

    For example the Greek street name AΓΓΕΛΑKH (pronunced ə.ge.ˈlʌk.i) is not written as AGGELAKH but as ANGELAKH

    Same with ΕΥΘYMIOY (pronunced ɛf.ˈθi.mi.ʊə) is not written as EYTHYMIOY but as EFTHYMIOU, the first Greek Y is latin F, the second Greek Y is latin Y and the third Greek Y is latin U.

    So it's real hell to "fantasize" which greek letter or syllable is transformed to which latin character if you don't know by heart the rules that apply.

    @ gerogev
    The best you can do is to ask [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to tell you what kind of problems he has (if any) using the NTU in a 1490 he has.
