    Hello friends.

    I have recently bought a refurbished US version 3970LMT and it is a night and day difference from my old garmin.
    I have upgraded the firmware to 4.90 and also the maps to the latest one.

    Regarding enabling the features, I have followed exactly the instructions, downloaded the necessary files and
    even created the G:\.system\diag\html directory, but still I cannot enable the extra functions.

    Anyone here with the 3970LMT who has successfully added the new features?
    Can you please let me know if you have the 4.90 firmware or was it something older.
    Also, please pardon my ignorance, but how do I know if my 3790LMT is region 140?

    I would really like to have the mp3 and video functions enabled.

    Thank you so much and best regards to everyone.

    Padon.

    As far as I remember enabling features worked with 3490 fw version 3.60.
    Not tested with other fw versions by me.
    I'm not sure, but I think enabling features by using xml files doesn't work with nuvi 3790. Only by patching (modifying) region 140.
    The whole device memory is divided into some regions. Region 140 is a part of the whole system.
    Somewhere in this forum is a topic about executing code from SD card. At this topic is explained about regions.

    Thanks Voyager56.
    Now I understand Region 140.
    The FW version is also what Im thinking abt, maybe the latest one doesnt allow mod anymore so Im thinking of
    downgrading to 3.60 as you have mentioned. I tried the patch mod but didnt work.

    Thanks Catymag.

    I did read everything from the beginning of this thread.
    downloaded every files (which i am thankful that most of the files are linked by other members)
    and did exactly eveything step by step...

    but my 3790 didnt have the extra features.

    im thinking the latest firmware doesnt allow it anymore.
    not unless someone can prove me wrong otherwise that they have a 3790 ver 4.90
    with working extra features

    Thanks again.

    Patching region 140 via sd still work, you can try files posted quite at the end of this posts :

    Another way to convert 34xx with logo and enable features.
    Files have been renewed recently: Udated on 13.10.2012
    added Video Player and Premium Point Addressing and updated Ldr.bin
    37xx doesnt have region 140 , so must convert to 34xx

    Caty do you mean features as on 34xx will be enabled or just features of 37xx can be enabled (disabled)?
    I was sure (and I still am) that some features of 34xx model cannot be enabled on 37xx. Am I wrong?

    Yes ,I mean you can enable all the features a 37xx could have ,depending on hardware naturally, but to have all the 34xx features must start from 34xx firmware, these files will work with both 37xx and 34xx firmwares.
    Edit : infos ,as said ,are in thread ,see post n 61

    Friends,

    VERY GOOD NEWS!

    as per your help and guidance, I have successfully flashed my 3970LMT into 3490LMT.
    everything works as a 3490LMT.

    and also, I have enabled extra features such as mp3 and video.
    I have installed the EcoRoute HD on my car and I have tested it and it also works.
    Bluetooth on my phone is also working.

    The only thing not working is the Voice Command.
    I get a message saying

    "Voice Command support is not available for American English."

    I tried to change Voice Language and Text Language but still cannot enable Voice Command.

    any ideas?



    Thank you so much my friends!
