    Webupdater reads ModelId (HWID) and FW version. Put any Model Description and webupdater will recognize unit by HWID.

    Yes. But it does read the Model Name description because it will show nuvi1300 (Unit ID xxxxxxxxxx). i.e.:

    ymne

    Now edit the GarminDevice.xml Model Description to 1350, and voila:

    i3u1

    That doesn't mean it takes it into account any further of course, and as you said it's only the HWID which identifies the unit and determines the appropriate FW, and the current version which then determines if an update is needed [which is what i also said].

    PS: I had 'WebUpdater reads only the Model-Description, ... etc', i meant 'WebUpdater only reads the Model-Description, ...'. Sorry.

    Webupdater reads more information from GarminDevice.xml , but model is recognized by HWID in GarminDevice.xml. Model Description is only text displayed in Webupdater's window.

    TRIVIA

    If Garmin had to do a "Low Level Interrogation" of the device we would not be able to cheat by using "Flash disk" instead of device.
    Serial devices of course work with proper low level communication between the device and the Garmin Software.

    It's a given that we're all agreed on Garmin's programs via usb only looking as far as the GarminDevice.xml for the info it needs and for the very reason you've stated. I think what is the issue here is what info does MapUpdater/GE then use from the xml. It obviously 'reads' the Model Description, but does it then use that info to determine which additional files to dl to the device? [in Strephon's case the JCV file for his 1300 with splash of 1340-50]. I suspect it does, by looking further into the xml to see if the path for jcv is present and maybe further. Maybe there needs to be some synergy between the files paths, the Model Description/ID and even other info. So would Strephon be given the JCV file if he edited his modded splash 1300's xml to show his Model Description as 'nuvi 1390' for instance?

    I don't have any problems with the 1300. All the features work, including junction view. I simply do not receive a junction view file with the map when the map updates, and even if I did it would be replaced by the Garmin-provided full JCV file. Garmin skimped on the memory for these units in the US as I'm sure most of us are aware, and Garmin provides the full file for direct download from its servers as a response to repeated complaints about lost junction views.
