    Firmware Ver 4.60 will run both NT and non-NT maps on your Garmin GPS.

    It will also up-date the Canadian GPS unites but you will no longer have French language, just English for voice. Nothing is out for any other language.

    I have a 06 Wing and updated the firmware to 4.60 installed the 2012.40 img file and like everybody else I got the grayed out keyboard. So I copied my old map file to it and was going to switch between cards to use the search option that way. I then copied the file gmapprom.img to a another card so that I would have the updated maps. Well all the smaller roads did not appear I tried another download and got the same thing. For some reason I pulled the card with the unit still on and renamed the file to gmapsupp.img and reinstalled it into the unit while it was still on. It showed the little window Loading Maps and guess what everything works with the new maps no grayed out keyboard. Have not a clue to what happened but maybe someone else can duplicate it and figure it out. Hope this is helpful to someone

    @Vonbeck
    Some of the best discoveries are made accidentally, lol. It would seem that 'hot plugging' the map card maybe enables something to allow the new map to be fully compatible with the fw update and thus fully enable search(?). If you could verify that this 'enabling' is permanent for the new map, i.e. that hot plugging does not have to be repeated after the unit is powered down and rebooted, that would appear to confirm some kind of fw initializing. Either way, if this is not a one-off fluke and works with any NT map, it's a nice find champ.

    This FW is also compatible with EU or not?
    What language is available when you install this FW?

    Hi Loly,
    Are you interested in this fw for the same reason in my [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]? I don't have a Goldwing and maybe one of the owners posting here will correct this, but afaik, this is NA issued firmware and was packaged with the CNNTNA 2011.10 map on a CF card when originally issued by Garmin. Probably any country NT maps will work with it. The GW units '06-'08 originally did not read NT maps but the 4.50 & 4.60 fw somehow enables that, and whether by unlocking that ability on the hardware or by unencrypting the NT maps via the fw to allow the unit to read the map data is the big question.

    It seems the older fw supported both EN & FR, but the new 4.60 may support only EN however i am unable to confirm that. Whether any other language is able to be added is unknown to me.

    It would be great if you could determine how this fw works and see if it could be somehow used to enable reading of NT maps in other older non-NT units! The later GW units using an SD card ('09 onwards) already have the ability to read NT maps.

    Some info here:

    Earlier (buggy) 4.50 is available here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    I believe some of the recent units sold outside of US are still the older 'CF card' units (Non-NT). If they have any trouble loading the fw, a reset may be required, and this is what i read elsewhere for CA & AU units, maybe the same for EU Navi if using CF:
    If the instructions from Garmin will not update your NAVI CF carded unit, then there are some further steps that you can take. These steps are best accomplished by two people.

    1. Remove the screws from the trunk unit, so that you can open up the plastic cover. There are four screws holding the plastic cover to the trunk front wall, and for the two lower ones you will need a shorter screwdriver (Philips head)

    2. Open the plastic cover to expose the NAVI unit. Look closely at the top edge of the unit, to find a tiny hole. This is the reset, and it needs an object the size of a paper clip to press it.

    3. Partially insert the CF card with the update on it into the slot in the GPS unit, but do not press it home. Using a paper clip or like item, test press the reset button so you can see what pressure it takes – not much.

    4. While pressing the reset button, have someone turn the ignition switch to ACC position, and read what the display says. It should say “holding”. At this time, while continuing to hold the reset button in, finish inserting the CF card with the update on it.

    5. The display should go to “loader” and then to “updating from card”. At this time, you can release the reset button, and allow the unit to update.

    6. Turn the ignition to the off position.
    Good luck exploring! Cheers.
