    Yes, he put you straight and sorted your problem by giving you the correct FID. But, in fairness, you should also be saying:
    catymag you are THE WOMAN.
    'Coz Caty set you straight back in Posts #36 & 38. The JM method still works fine to unlock the gmap folder for MS then to generate an 'unauthenticated' (partly unlocked) image for modern units. But it is so much easier just to unlock the gmap folder using [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as Caty told you. Once you use it, you'll never want to mess around with JM again for NT maps. Just try it, you'll be doing yourself a favour.

    You are correct Neil. I did thank Caty for her reply earlier but should have acknowledged her also.I do appreciate any and all help. This is a great site and I'm still learning stuff all the time.
    As far as the PGFT method I cannot seem to figure out how to actually get the file in it. When I click on the Load File I cannot seem to find where to point it too.

    @Nozzon
    Just select the MapSource Tab then follow this:

    pgft1

    Don't press the 'Load File' button for this function, that's for loading img & gpi files at present. Maybe would be a bit less confusing if that button was greyed out on MapSource tab selection, but it's a work in progress still. The gmap folders are displayed automatically, providing they have been 'installed' and not just dropped in. But you can update the registry manually in V2.2.3.4 anyway as shown above by selecting the .xml file of a missing map.

    If you continue to have trouble, read the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] thread again and then post there for help if you need it. You'll find it worth the very tiny trouble to master PGFT, and not just for MS unlocking. It really is the 'swiss army knife' for garmin files. Started off for just unlocking protected gpi files but now useful not only for unlocking gmap folders but also img maps, and marcocq is working on protected vpm voice files as well. A real 'one-stop shop'!

    My wife's name is Cathy so I automatically thought of Caty as Cathy and I'm sure a beautiful lady.

    Thanks for that pic Neil. I must have a different version of PGFT as you can see by my photo, it does not have a mapsource tab.

    I am now searching for the newer version

    Yes, I'm sure you're right on the second assumption about Caty as well. Don't worry about the 'Caty is really a guy' thing, i reckon voyager56 was only kidding. It's a long running joke at Noeman. I remember one member thought she couldn't possibly be an Italian girl and was sure she was a Chinese man. Go figure.

    Sorry for continuing the OT.

    As i said PGFT is a work in progress, and marcoqc has been progressing very quickly. Although you probably obtained that version fairly recently, there have been several other minor version and bug-fix releases since Version 2.0.0.4. You will notice that both Caty & i were referring to V2.2.3.4 in our posts. We all are obviously running 64bit and there is a 32bit version as well available in Post #1 of the PGFT thread. Try the MS function in the latest version as we suggested, it's very user friendly.

    Thanks Neil. I now have v2.2.3.4 and am going to give it a try. Right now its just to learn how it works since I have managed to unlock the map using Mapsource, JM and the correct FID (which was my problem in the first place).
    I'm going to reinstall the locked map and try PGFT.
    Thanks to all. Fantastic help and great site.

    Good plan, you won't have a problem i'm sure. But if you do, post in the PGFT thread for any help as it would be a bit OT here.

    I still remember loly's post some time ago on this matter. From time to time question about Caty's personality arises. It's always fun that some people are sure Caty is women and some people are sure Caty is a man. Sorry for total OT, but sometimes we need to smile a little.
