    I understood this phrase correctly And therefore my "no compliments intended" should be understood as "no offence intended".

    Hi everyone,
    i am new on this forum.
    I have a 2006 US Goldwing with a 2009 US gps unit installed by the previous owner.
    This guy solved in this expensive way the problem of map updates before the release of updated firmwares.
    Anyway i am still disappointed with the capabilities of this system.
    I think that we all are doing our personal research to solve different problems:
    how the firmware manage the nt maps
    how we can change the language
    how we can use EU firmware on US machines
    and so on...
    We need to do all the work by ourself because we don't have any help from Honda or Garmin side.
    My personal interest is to change one part of the firmware that is related to the warning messages on the screen.
    In particular i am afraid with the message "Poor GPS Signal" popping up when the received gps signal goes down for a while.
    I live in a mountain area with lot of tunnels and trees and i have this message on the screen most of the time.
    Another need is to use the navi controls when the bike is moving.
    I started my searches on the net and also had some mail exchange with carlinux. I am happy to meet him here also.
    If i can help i had a look to the sys.bin that was on the original sd card (not cf card, my navi is 2009 US) with a simple hex editor.
    Near to the end of the file there are all system messages like calculating, Poor gps signal, recalculating, lost gps signal etc. and also all the words the spelling voice uses like turn, continue, left, right, for, kilometers and so on.
    It will be interesting to see if the 2.60 EU firmware has this words in english or not.
    A big block of the software contains also third part software (GNU) with carachter sets etc.
    I was unable for now to understand what the software do because i don't have any software for disassembling.
    I had a look also to the gupdate.gcd ver. 4.60 US and 2.60 EU but is a different format so the hex editor can't help me.
    I know that Fred H. in this link has rewritten some code but without too much luck.
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Now i will try to read the sd actually installed, maybe i can say more.
    Regards

    @pharmaweb, thank you so much for you happyness to meet me here.
    As I understand you are asking for something like EPT (Enhanced Position Technology) function because you want to simulate a progression of the vehicle instead of unit-locking, but i think this is not present at all in the navigation software and it seems to be very hard to create it. My best wishes.

    @all, in a few days I will receive a second navigation unit and I will sacrifice it for connecting to the internal hidden USB and fully dump the eprom.
    My best wishes to myself.

    Maybe you should wait for me to create that patched boot.bin, which would dump regions without sacrifices? I would take no more than a week probably.

    No problem kunix, next week I will have two units, but both USA. So I will use your patch in an european bike of a fiend of mine.
    I will open the second unit to find and use the hidden USB. I hope this port will be usefull.

    That firmware linked in the first post does have a normal USB handler procedure inside. But this doesn't imply USB would work, of course.
    So how are you going to use that hidden USB? Even if you would be able to connect and use Garmin USB protocol, that firmware doesn't seem to support command 0x60 which dumps regions.
    And if you're not going to use Garmin USB protocol, then what are your plans? Are you trying to reach JTAG?

    Uh, I didn't know this and I've no idea of what we will find. I am not alone and we will proceed according to what we will find.

    Some update, the actual sd in use is a 4 gb hc with the same sys.bin file, only the gmapsupp.img and gmapprom.unl are updated.
    The firmware is V 2.30.

    @ carlinux i just want to remove the warning message, because appear even when the navi is not in use.
    (2006-2008 navi can be shut down, 2009-2010 not, so it's on also when you display the audio system screen)

    @all
    how a gupdate file can be build?
    I want to build a gupdate modified file for v 2.30, from where i can start?
    I think i will need some basis on ARM architechture...

    If you have sys.bin file exposed then this is probably the main firmware. You can load it with IDA (Interactive Disassembler) and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and proceed with your dark intentions. So you don't need to pack/unpack GCD files at all.
