    I have installed a North America map and a Japan map on my HTC HD2 mobile phone. The NA map is called gmapsupp.img since it was the first map I installed. Later i installed the Japan map and just called it Japan.img since I did not want to use it until I got to Japan. When I went to Settings/Manage My data/My Maps I was surprised to see the Japan map listed. I can also select it. So I guess the Garmin app just looks for files of type img.

    I have a Dakota 20 and I want to put multiple img files on sd card. I put the somename.img files in Garmin folder without any success. Also I put it in a Map folder but without luck. My GPS read only gmapsupp.img and gmapbmap.img file name on SD card. Where I'm wrong? I have tried 3.80 and 3.82 firmware.

    On microSD card I have a folder named Garmin. In Garmin folder I have 2 files: openmap.img and Europe3D.img.
    I have tried 3.8 and 3.82 firmware without luck. If I rename the file in gmapsupp.img, I can use the map.

    Would like to share my experience with the Nuvi 3790. In the MicroSD card, under the /Map directory, multiple maps with any filename can be used simultaneouslySo long the file extension is .img (eg MapOfMyCountry.img), the device will recognise the maps. The only wrinkle is that for this to work, it depends on how the maps (files) are transferred to the MicroSD card :-

    1) If the files are transferred by copying from a PC directly to the MicroSD card which is then inserted into the device, then the device must be shut down (ie not set to Sleep) and restarted. Do this by depressing the Power button for about 4 secs. The message "Turn Off the device?" appears . Tap on "Off" and the device shuts down. Start the device again by pressing the Power button. The devices power up and the text "GARMIN" appears and then goes through the start up process. After the device has restarted, go to Tools > Settings > myMaps. The newly copied files can be seen in the list. Check the maps you want enabled in the device.

    2) The files can also be transferred with the MicroSD card inserted in the device and the device connected to the PC via the USB cable. In this instance, when the device is disconnected from the PC, the device will shut down automatically. Pressing the Power button will restart it and the new files can be seen as per the above.
    Hi,

    I'm hoping someone can assist me regarding the Nuvi 3790, I'm trying the methods above for storing multiple maps on a MicroSD card but the maps do not shop in myMaps when they are named as I wish, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    3790 should show maps in Mymap list and they go in Map folder with anyname.img in sd
    Garmin folder only accepts: gmapsupp.img
