    Or just try using different map. Maybe the one you are using don't have enough info.

    Just to be clear, those POI files that end in .db (like in the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) won't work for this app, correct?

    I downloaded the Garmin USA 2.0 from installous but i don't understand what the step3 mean? Why do i delete all 4 .img files and download new map files? What new map files and where/how do i doanload it? Shouldn't the Garmin USA 2.0 already has all the correct USA map already in the package ready to use? Please advise what i need to do to get it working. Thanks a bunch.!!!

    Before you start, you will require - Installous, iFile (trial version is ok).

    Step 1 : Download and install "Garmin U.S.A. 2.0" from Installous (not Garmin StreetPilot 6.5.5).
    Step 2 : Use iFile to look for the folder where it is installed and go to the ".system" folder (dotSystem not System). It should be in /var/mobile/Applications/???numbers???/garmin-nav.app/storage-usa/.System
    Step 3 : Delete the .img files in the .System folder (you will have to download new map files)
    Step 4 : Use iFile to modify the /etc/hosts file (putting the 127.0.0.1 triplew.garmin.com and gold.garmin.com) & Save. Make sure you check the ownership.
    Step 5 : Restart iPhone and open the Garmin program.

    Note 1. If you see "Activation of maps require internet connection" it means you didnt delete the .img file in the .System folder.
    Note 2. If you see "Authentication failure, must buy original apps from appstore" it means you didnt modify the /etc/hosts file properly.

    Step 6 : Use a computer to download a map for your country. Search for the latest map.

    Note 3. There are 2 types of maps. Unlocked or locked. Read more on how to unlock a map using a keygen.

    Step 7 : Insert the map in the /var/mobile/Applications/???numbers???/garmin-nav.app/storage-usa/.System folder. The map should be named gmapprom.img (some maps you download may be named gmapsupp.img just rename it)

    Note 4. If the map is a locked map u have to create a gmapprom.unl file to unlock the map. Put it in the same .System folder.

    Step 8 : Finally, make sure the gmapprom.img file has the correct ownership i.e. Owner mobile, Group mobile, User read write execute, Group read execute, World read execute.

    Now your Garmin USA should work on yr iPhone.
    (I just got mine working this morning so if there are any errors on my instructions please correct me)

    @Neil I will just ignore you and all your shot in the dark answers which does not help anyone.

    @trav7414 - You asked if u should delete all 4 .img files.

    The answer to that depends on what map you want in your Garmin. The download from installous comes with a USA map.

    The four .img files are:

    - gmapbmap.img - this is the world base map. You can keep this map because its a summary of the whole world and its size is small.
    - gmaptz.img - this is the time setting. You can keep this because it is small in size and u may need it when u go to different countries.
    - gmapprom.img - the map downloaded from installous is locked. You can delete this and download an UNLOCKED map somewhere (checkout the latest map in this forum)
    - gmap3d.img - this is the 3D buildings in USA. U can delete this and download a new 3D which comes with yr new map.

    If u are looking for USA map, u can download from here:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    download the CN North America NT 2012.40 UNLOCKED IMG - NOT the MAPSOURCE one.

    You should also re-download the JCV file and replace the JCV file in the /var/mobile/Applications/???numbers???/garmin-nav.app/storage-usa/.System/JCV folder. I used the D3060050A.JCV file.

    Hope this helps. Because if it does help then i would have helped 2 people more than @Neil.

    Be aware that some of that info is simply wrong or misleading. i.e.:
    - gmapbmap.img - this is the world base map. You can keep this map because its a summary of the whole world and its size is small.
    Correct advice is: 'You really should (or must) keep this map. The main use for basemap is to allow for browsing big areas. Detailed maps just are not able to cope with that. With big zooms, the device switches to the basemap. Without a basemap everything will work very slowly or may even crash. A more detailed explanation by Catymag here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]'.
    - gmapprom.img - the map downloaded from installous is locked. You can delete this and download an UNLOCKED map somewhere
    Correct advice is: '...the map downloaded from installous is locked. If it is the map you require, simply unlock it with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. If it is not the required map, you can delete it and download any map from the Index: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. A locked image can of course be unlocked with FUI. For use of a mapsouce map see below.
    download the CN North America NT 2012.40 UNLOCKED IMG - NOT the MAPSOURCE one.
    Correct advice is: Quickest way if you want the full map is to dl an image file. However CNNTNA & CNNTEU are big files so if you don't need the whole map and space is an issue, the best way is to dl the full Mapsource version or a gmap folder and just select the parts you require with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. A very easy program to use for most people. Read the MS thread on tips for using the patched MS version, also a very good tut is in catymag's thread [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    @omcx123
    Replying to me by definition is not ignoring me. You probably meant "I shall ignore you from now on", which is fine by me. I see you have not learned anything in regard to posting wrong & misleading information ie: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. I suggest you do some self-education on Garmin: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] although i doubt you will listen to me this time either.
    Hope this helps. Because if it does help then i would have helped 2 people more than @Neil.

    I'll probably get caned for this if it doesn't work. I don't have access phone at the moment so i can't check it, but there was been some cover on POIs earlier in the thread, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], culminating in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which states that this works:
    / var / mobile / aplications /,, xxxxxxxxxxxx,, / Library / sdcard / garmin / POI (the xxx are letters and numbers)

    If that doesn't work, put the *.gpi files into the directory "............/ Library / sdcard / POI".

    You will have to create the POI sub-folder in either case. Post #1 displays a different file structure in some members' experience.

    If it works, you should be able to search for a point of interest from "Where to" menu> to find them, but maybe won't find them from the "Points of Interest" menu, or display any sort of custom poi categories. That is you have to know for what you are searching.

    Another one of my 'shots in the dark' i'm afraid. Please report back if you get it to work.
