    Patch a new firmware during the progress of update through the WebUpdater and you can never go wrong ...

    First, thanks you for your answer.

    So, that means that I must install the version for GPSMAP 62/78

    But my device is a GPSMAP 62 S ( you know “S” means barometer, and compass)
    So this last version: Version 3.90 GPSMAP 62/78 is suppose to work fine on my GPSMAPS62 S ?
    And what do you mean for:
    Patch a new firmware during the progress of update through the WebUpdater and you can never go wrong ...
    Thanks again.

    4).You will get all of files you want within sd card !
    5).This method is helpful for updating firmware ., You will get GUPDATE.GCD in sd card and just copy and paste in--> device:\garmin\gupdate.gcd
    device will update unit firmware automatically when you disconnect USB.
    This cant fail in getting the right file

    62 ans 62s share the same firmware

    I had in mind the following:
    After downloading the new firmware through WebUpdater just do not disconnect the device and patch the resulting fresh GUPDATE.GCD in the body of the device, then delete the original GUPDATE.GCD, rename GUPDATE_Patched.GCD in GUPDATE.GCD and restart the device ...

    Not sure is a good advice to patch it directly in internal memory....if something goes wrong ?
    Some tricks are good for advanced users

    Eventually I did everything as you told me and it was perfect.
    I have my GPS Map62S working perfectly with the JNX files.
    In fact I purchase this GPS because this possibility otherwise I didn’t.
    I didn’t want to “lose” all my raster maps.

    Thank you!!


    Now, I have put my raster maps in the GPS but only with one I have problems.
    This was converted from an Ozi calibration (map extension), after that I convert to JNX with MAPC2MAPC V465
    The original image is a TIF very heavy (about 26 MB)
    But the problem is that the proper scale in order to see clear the map is 120m but that is too close for this map.

    Is there any option for calibrating this map again but with a scale a bit more far in order to see a bit better the overall map?
    As I have told you the original map is a TIF.

    Thanks.

    I thought at the time that someone would hack the firmware to get this option for the restriction is unreasonable. And though satellite images are nice I still prefer to have digital images of calibrated, classical topographical maps on the gps.

    For example - the road - or rather bush trail - I was trying to find its intersection point with the main road: but it was obscured by trees; and for the last 20 km the satellite images were taken during the winter so there was no way to see exactly where the road travelled or intersected. But with the standard topographical map it was easy to see where it went. However only one of these maps could be put into my custom map folder and only after manipulating the tile-count etc.. Given that these maps are small scale to get any reasonable amount of data into the gps was impossible - I always ran out of legal storage space.

    I patched my firmware last night and already have one custom .jnx installed. I will need learn the best way to format these files for clarity and draw order.

    I connected the gps and ran the webupdater . Then I copied the gupdate.GCD to my pc; I ran the patch. After copying and renaming the patched file I unplugged the gps and restarted; the update was applied. This is an excellent development.

    I purchased a key for the newest version of map2pap too so I can make jnx files without the little red square.
    Here is the problem I would like to learn how to correct:

    The image of a topographic map is fine at 500 metre; but it is blurry at 700; it would be nice to have it clear at the higher levels too.

    Is anyone aware of a good tutorial for making multi-level jnx images?

    I have screen shots of the issue but I fail to have sufficient posts here to paste links otherwise I would.

    Thanks

    Hello,
    Sorry about the dummy question, but is anything that I have to do to have JNX files (BirdEye view) on my nuvi 3790 (modded to 3490), or when I use the Lifetime updater it will automatically download (if any) the files on the Garmin.
