What is region file?
The region file is meant to be used in conjunction with WebUpdater which downloads this file directly from Garmin and transfers the file to the nuvi. You can also download the region file (if you have the link) and drag it to WebUpdater. Both methods will do the same thing and copy the region file to the nuvi as GUPDATE.GCD in the x:/Garmin folder. After a power cycle, the nuvi will be updated to the version contained in GUPDATE.GCD, IF the firmware version currently flashed on the nuvi is OLDER.
The direct file update (.exe) does the same thing (transfers GUPDATE.GCD to the nuvi) but does NOT require WebUpdater to transfer the file.
In addition, Firmwares are release for different regions.
There are Firmwares for USA/EU, Asia and depending on the region, different features are enabled or disabled
And this is example for other region (Malaysia/Singapore)
Never updated firmware on my 775T, is it safe to update to the latest firmware as I have several Jetmouse unlocked maps on the 775T, or will the Garmin firmware update prevent me from using any further/newer mapping in the future?
"unlocked maps" should be always stored on sd, this is for your device safety: if something goes wrong you can remove it , and also you can remove it updating. Sds now are cheap.
Unlockers like FIU works fine with new firmwares and new maps. It's always better to update firmwares coz Garmin corrects bugs -
A little significant addonn!
On nuvi 7x5 (region file only) software version 4.00 do not work voice support for Language Guide!!!
It is OK?! Garmin is well informed about this problem, but no progress so far
thank you but link for ver 3.90 and 4.0 are all dead. Please reupload
