    Default Excellent! Worked Perfectly 1st Time Around

    I resisted my usual urge to rush through the instructions too quickly and took my time. After updating the firmware to 4.60 I unzipped the compressed map files "I found" then I checked them to make sure they were virus free before opening them and everything went great. My Firmware is now 4.6 and my 2008 maps are now current and 6 years newer. If you don't know what a compressed file is or have a clue on what to do with one you should probably just buy the software or pay someone else to do it.

    @overman2088
    Where have you found EU v2.60 fw? Can you post the fw somewhere and/or give a link? I'll then have a look at it for you, but i'd suggest don't attempt to load it to a US GW navi unit until it's checked for compatibility.

    This fw is for HWID 0504, the US navi units are HWID 0265. Maybe you can cross-flash the fw with the original HWID but it may cause problems if the physical hardware is not identical. You could try a custom GUPDATE.GCD combining the US boot.bin with the EU fw_all.bin and see if that will flash ok. You may have to try to force the update using the reset method from this post [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. This is risky stuff because afaik the GW navis cannot be accessed in preboot mode to flash with an .rgn file, so if you brick it your navi may well be dead. I know ppl have gone the other way to get NT map capability (ie loaded US fw 4.6 to EU units) but some have been disappointed with the overall results, especially those who drive on the left (UK etc.). No one posting here has so far reported flashing EU on a US navi. As for the RU voice you are right, it won't work on your US navi because the voice file is not present. It would have to be added somehow, and it may not be possible to do easily. Think carefully before attempting this flash.

    Does this device have SD:/sys.bin present? If so then this is the main firmware. You can replace this file with any other fw_all.bin (while changing HWID appropriately, of course) and try to run it.

    @kunix
    Are you interested to discover how the US 4.50 & 4.60 Goldwing fw is able to see NT images? I have long wondered if the NT capability of those 2 fw versions could be used to do the same with SP 2600 series which seems to be similar hw.

    These particular navi units update fw only from CF card and are not accessible in the way a Garmin unit is normally afaik. I don't have access to one at present unfortunately, perhaps overman2008 can assist with testing?

    It's probably interesting. There are two problems: no known pre-boot mode, no free time for me currently.

    Yeah, about the first ... i wonder if the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is a kind of 'pseudo-pre boot mode'? About the 2nd .. bu*ger!!

    It says "loader". So it could be some kind of a pre-boot mode. The question is who initiates the update process. On modern nuvis the main firmware does it. So if it crashes, you can't flash GCD files. On the other hand there is a mysterious Reset button. Maybe it forces the bootloader to start GCD updating process. So, in conclusion, I can't claim anything definite.
