    pin Nuvi 12xx,13xx,14xx,16xx with "software missing" on first step of flashing process

    A few days ago, I finally get a new 1410 with this known problem.
    Symptoms:
    The device can not be flashed with the correct firmware - after "Loader loading" just appears "System Software missing". Also, device can not be flashed from SD card. Erasing the memory with the command ergn not work.
    Reason:
    The main memory chip physically cannot recording.
    Solution:
    Just replace the memory chips on the same from Nuvi 205/205w/500/1200/1300/1400.

    If you change string in boot.bin from kunix solution nuvi can read from SD card from update.txt
    If you flash with 2.bin nuvi change ID when you read with tool go7win becouse read xml from folder Garmin where is diferent ID of nuvi.
    So this mean that flash is posible but some other region prevent to turn on nuvi,we must find what region is show this software missing.
    Maybe is region 91 i dont know i will try all posible solution.

    p.s.
    No luck.
    If is region changed with update.txt after restarting nuvi is all the same like before flashing.
    What will be if i erase region 5?
    Anybody know?

    the command will erase the region 5 but no reported if still able to write. I bet you try overwrite before but it's fail, correct?

    Very interesting and useful information. So...Anyone tried to replace a memory chip of nuvi 1xxx? How do you divide the new memory into the proper regions and record the info to them? Do we need a programmer for that? What memories are compatible? What tools are you using? Many questions...

    when you say memory, do you mean the flash memory chips or the sram/ram chips?
    And, other than opening up a unit and guessing which ones are which (well i can do an educated guess based upon part numbers, etc), do you know of any sites that might have some level of documentation on this?

    For example, I have a 1490T that is exhibiting the signs in the first post - absolutely will not take a flash and doesnt boot other than pre-boot mode.
    I have another "dead" 265w that only boots to white screen. (It used to work, but I played with it a bit too much until i caused it to white screen of death).
    I'm wondering if I can use the parts from the 265w to fix the 1490T
