    Hi,
    Has anybody tried to put several new active routing topo maps on the same SD ?
    I tried to put Topo France Pro v3 and Topo Austria v3 on the same one.
    For that, I put the two .db files into the same SQL folder inside the Garmin folder with the two .img files. The thing was only French trails were displayed on my Montana when I selected “where to go/trails”.
    Then I created two SQL folders inside Garmin folder named SQL and SQL (2) to separate .db files. In that case, only trails from SQL folder were shown.
    If I create two Garmin folders named Garmin and Garmin (2) and put in each the SQL folder and .img file corresponding to one map, only Garmin map is displayed.
    So, only one .db file per SD card ?

    Have you tried to deselect France in your outdoor gps and see if it shows Austria trails?
    Or may be create 2 profiles one for France and on for Austria map- I havent tested 2 topo pro maps at a time in 62, but will try.

    Hi,
    Even when deselecting Topo France v3 on my Montana, french trails and only them are still displayed. Where are the Austrian ones ?
    What do you mean by creating two profiles ?

    While I'm sure writing multiple smaller files and renaming them as you suggest allows you to avoid the segment limit for maps, that sounds like an awful lot of work for little gain. On the flip side, this is sound advice when dealing with older nüvi units such as my 200W. But newer units such as the 1xxx nüvi series as well as some, if not all, 2012 units don't have this limitation if properly prepared. It is possible to have multiple maps running at the same time on these units, as long as those maps have unique filenames and are located in a directory named "Map" on the root of the MicroSD card. Placing the maps in this directory eliminates the need to rename them.

    Is that true ?, How about Garmin type 1xxx and 3xxx ?

    @budiperkasa
    1) If your query is in regard to multiple unlock codes: When post #3 was made in May 2010, that was relevant. Now with the GMA restrictions, unlock codes generated by a keygen such as JetMouse are not so relevant, especially for modern nuvis such as 1xxx, 2xxx, 3xxx and many others running recent fw. Modern unlockers such as [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] overcome the GMA restriction in image files anyway. See: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    2) If you're asking about the 2GiB file size limit for 1xxx and 3xxx, no it's not true for those units. It's 4GiB (-1 byte) and that is a size limitation of FAT32. There are other limits in regard to the number of image tiles contained within the *.img file but it's not usually a problem in everyday use.

    @djmarcellorc
    In your 255W, only gmapsup1.img will work in the SD as the second image, i.e. x:/Garmin/gmapsup1.img. If it doesn't work then update the fw. You can only have two image names in your SD card with that unit, gmapsupp & gmapsup1 not gmapsup2. If you need more maps, you can use MapSource versions and combine them with MS up to the 4GiB FAT32 file size-limit provided that you also don't exceed the total number of both map tile and individual map limits. That way you can (in theory and subject to the other 2 limitations) have up to 8GiB of map data as 2 X 4GiB image files in the SD.

    Using unlock codes is going to run you into trouble with FID/MID of 2200 or above. Read [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and just use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to unlock such maps.

    Very easy. Just run WebUpdater:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    This is the latest fw for your 255W:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    You can also update the fw from an sd:
    1. Rename nuvi2x5W_GCDFile__760.gcd to gupdate.gcd and then put it in a Garmin folder in an otherwise empty sd.
    2. Remove any previous gupdate.gcd from your device.
    4. Remove from charge if charging, and turn off device.
    4. Insert SD.
    5. Restart your device and allow it to update normally.
