    I agree, but these things aren't like modern nuvis really. And i have a pristine SP 2610 just begging to be bricked. The 26x0 series update with an .exe which as you know simply invokes updater.exe to load an *.rgn file, so the question of how the GW units load fw is purely academic imo. I'm more interested in whether we (by that i mean you) can find the mechanism though which the new GW fw now reads NT and if that can be transposed into a modded fw for SP 2600 units? If you're in, we can spin the last few posts off into a new thread. If you're out, i'll just cry myself to sleep you b*****d!

    If you have a map update CF card, you will find the gupdate.gcd on it. If not, i can't tell you how to find the HWID for sure on the unit as i don't have access to a GW presently. You could try something like Menu>Info>System Info or similar. Even if you don't find the HWID, the currently installed sw version will give you a good hint as to if it's a EU or US unit. In any case, the bike itself will disclose the navi unit type. If it's a EU model GoldWing (IT = Italy, right?) it would have HWID 0504 and use EU fw.

    Can't access these things by usb like a nuvi-type unit as far as i can remember. They are like a StreetPilot 2610 in hardware appearance though.

    Thanks a lot guys.
    Both boot.bin and fw_all.bin reports HWID 265 (so it seems to be an USA firmware) and SW Version 450 (firmware 4.5).

    The problem is: the USA model is full in english but all european Wingers needs to have their own language. We can easy change the "written" language installing a multilanguage firmware, like v.2.2 or 2.6 but in this case the unit become *mute*. Does not speak.

    The good news is: the mod is possibile, because someone sell this mod for € 360. Both written, using a multilanguage fw, *and* spoken.

    The question is: in post #86 you speak about a cross-flashing with original HWID. If I join the "USA" boot.bin v. 265/450 and "EU" fw_all.bin v. xxx/260 what values of SW Version I must override?
    In other words, I keep the original boot.bin 256/450, because my unit is an USA model, but I make a substitution of fw_all.bin with the multilanguage version. Do I need to change HWID and/or SW Version in fw_all.bin or can I keep the original?

    I have no experience with cross-flashing EU fw to a US unit and until your post above I hadn't previously read a report of it being done so i cannot say for sure what the outcome will be i.e. it may not flash successfully (you may get 'system software missing' message, or it may hang on boot for instance), or if it does flash the unit may still not 'speak'. It will be at your own risk if you proceed following my uncertain suggestions, however the general principle with most Garmin units is that if you use the unit's original fw boot.bin combined with the other fw's fw_all.bin, then you should be able to successfully flash back to full original fw.

    This is how i would attempt it: Do the general override of the HWID to 0265 in RGN_Tool. The HWID override is essential. I would also do the SW Version override to match the EU version, but i don't think that will matter. You might have to use the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to make it flash the modded gupdate.gcd, but try doing it normally at first. I would also use US v4.50 boot bin for the combined gcd, because if you have to flash back to full US that might make it easier to flash back using full V4.60 fw.

    Good luck, and please let us know the outcome if you decide to attempt this.

    Unfortunately boot.bin is the same in v.4.5 USA and v.2.60 EURO. Same Section, same RGN Region and same Size. The only difference is the HWID.
    In this way I can flash directly v.2.60 but this don't solve the problem.

    So, now the question is: where is 'the voice'?

    In my opinion I need to create a temporary gupdate.gcd with the original boot.bin in the first Section and, in a second section, the right package containing the voice. But I don't know where to find this, its 'Section', its RGN Region' and how to build this Section.

    I don't have access to my own PC to check the hash files of the 2 boot bins, but even if they are in fact identical that does not indicate anything regarding voice. Safest to use the US boot bin with EU fw_all and HWID overrides. The functions for voice etc are contained in fw_all.bin, but then you will maybe need to load a voice file to enable your specific language. Without a US unit to test this on, I cannot give you any further specific help, perhaps someone else can comment and help.

    In goldwing firmwares voices are not included.

    The voices are recorded in the EPROM of gps
    so when you change the GPS firmware is dumb

    Spanish:
    En los firmwares de goldwing no vienen las voces incluidas.

    Las voces estan grabadas en la eprom del gps
    por eso al cambiar de firmware el gps se queda mudo

    saludos
