    I have another nüvi 250W with v7.60 fw. Will try the same on that unit (provided HWID is also 0827) and post back.

    I succeeded in converting the second nüvi 250WT (also HWID 0827) into a nüvi 465T using Neil's instructions in post #28 and #40 (thank you, mate!). Screen shots below:

    Strange thing though, is that after updating the FW with WebUpdater from v4.20 to v7.60, the unit is back to being a "normal" nüvi 250WT again without any truck supporting features. Yet, before updating, WebUpdater does recognize the unit as a nüvi 465! Anything I have overlooked or should have done besides what is mentioned in post #28 and #40?

    You've overlooked nothing other than the fact that the HWID of the unit remains as 0827, therefore WU actually sees it as a nuvi 2x5W series because it reads the hwid regardless of which model number it displays. If you think about it, your 2009 [so called] '250W' has the same model no. as earlier [real] 250W's but has a different HWID. The fw required is based on the HWID [normally], so WU will supply the correct fw for it accordingly. If you did a full conversion to 465T with hwid 0943 then you'd get the 465T fw.

    If there are any further fw updates for 465T from Garmin [possible], just use RGN_Tool to combine the 0827 boot.bin with the new 0943 fw_all.bin and flash in preboot.
