    There is a clear step-by-step in Post #1 with the latest fw v4.6 to dl. Follow the tut putting this [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] from roger1109 in the MENA 2013.20 thread onto your CF card with the fw from post #1 here, but only for the GW US model years 2006, 2007 or 2008 which use the CF card. The later models 2009 & 2010 use an SD card and have a different navigation unit - Do not attempt to load the fw from this thread onto the later units.

    I'm unsure what you mean by this, maybe you are calling the CF card a 'plugin'?:
    I installed the plugin on a mac but everytime I visit the page it asks me to install it again.

    I am really confused are we supposed to scan the card using the Garmin software ??
    In any case, I suggest you use a windows PC when loading the fw & map onto the CF card. Please read this entire thread, paying very close attention to Post #1. gscott01 has updated the tut and it works well for the 2006-2008 US GWs however the search function using pois is compromised with 'non-official maps' but there are workarounds suggested. If you are still confused, post again with specific details of your problem but only after reading the thread in full. Don't attempt anything until you fully understand what you are doing.

    I recommend the Mac and Mac only. Garmin files are written in Unix.

    Sure you can use a mac to read/write to FAT, which in one form of another is the default file system for CF cards (and SD, SDHC etc) and more importantly is the only fs which these navi units can understand, but i don't think the last part of your statement should be definitive advice (...and Mac only) considering File Allocation Table is a M$, not a native mac, file system. Horses for courses.

    So what are you referring to there, the dot-prefix linux/unix standard files such as '.system' which are hidden by default in the Operating System?

    Burial Garmin files in Windows I think it is very bad. I think that you have the appropriate software. Windows leaves a visible marks that could affect the Garmin malfunction. Action on these files in Linux or Mac does not do it (I'm not talking about user error).


    I once had a Honda Goldwing 2007, now I have a new 2012 and everything I did / do in Linux or a Mac, and I've never had problems.

    Again i really don't know what you are actually telling us there but i suspect it's maybe something important of which i at least am not aware. The majority of users here use a PC to access their units and media cards to add, delete or modify files and folders. Those who use a Mac and have trouble usually then don't when it is suggested to them to use a PC, which is the standard advice from PC users. But at least then if they do continue to have problems it is simpler to help them because then we can better work out what happened and advise them accordingly. I don't want to turn this discussion into a Mac v. PC thing (i know next to nothing about Mac anyway and am far from a PC expert as well), but i have never seen or heard a comment similar to yours:

    My lack of understanding could be partly due to the wording of it (google/bing translation to English, maybe from Russian?) and perhaps you are saying something like this:

    Hiding Garmin files in Windows is dangerous. (if so, why?). I think that you should use the appropriate software. (what software do we need to use then?). Windows causes damage (or interferes with/alters/modifies files) which could cause a malfunction of the Garmin unit. (how does Windows do that to them and to which specific files/folders, and what particular malfunction/s result?).

    My questions in red italics.

    Since this is not about that.
    You've got to believe, as it is not your business.
    This is my experience of many years and shared with them.

    Well, you should not make statements and then not be prepared to explain or justify them when queried. Please qualify what you are saying and prooflink, and maybe start a new thread if you do have something novel and important to tell us because it's really OT in this thread.

    Nice, thanks for that. I think as India drives on the left it's possible you may have some routing problems with the US fw. There was an earlier report from someone in UK who had problems with US fw on a Euro GW (exits on Highways wrong, i think). A further report after extensive road testing would be welcome.
    IMPORTANT: Edit to black out your ID, or remove your photos. You unit could be cloned if the wrong person gets your unit ID.
