    GPS ID, MapID, FID, PID, RgnID ,VenID


    GPS ID - Unique identifier for a hardware device.

    FID Family ID value Unique identifier for map creator. FID is NOT MapId.

    PID - Product Code - Unique value for product identification. Usually value 1 is used.

    Region Code - Each product can consist of several separate regions. There could be up to 255 regions within a single product, each region can have its own unlock code.

    Subregion ID - Additional identifier for unlock code, sometimes it's called vendor ID.

    Garmin unlock codes are created basing on GPS ID, FID, PID, region and subregion.

    Map ID - Identifier for a single tile of a map. This number must be unique among all maps in GPS.
    A GPS receiver will ignore a second tile with the same MapID.
    Each Garmin .img tiles have their own map ID, other then FID and PID.Each tile has an unique mapname.
    How is MapID created?
    MPC user gets the MapID inside license,FID too.
    In cGPSmapper or Mapwel is the user who has to define MapID for each tile.
    The MapID (8 digits number) switch defines what the actual filename for each tile is. Tiles usually have filenames that increment by 1 each time.
    Just tiles have a MapID? Or other subfiles too?
    Only tiles have a MapID, but can find the MapID in other subfiles, MMR file has MapID from its connected tile, MDR (index) contains all MapIDs from mapset, TRF, JCV have mapIDs from connected tiles.

    There is a relation between FID and MapID?
    There could be created a formula to compute MapID range basing on FID value, but this can be true for some Garmin maps only.

    My two cents:

    GPS ID - Officially Garmin calls this Unit ID.

    Map ID - There are two different definitions of this ID which lead to confusions. Tools like JetMouse keygen consider the Map ID the same as Family ID (FID). Whereas tools like GMapTool think Map ID as the unique ID of a map tile. There is no right or wrong. You can call an ID whatever you want because Garmin never publishes the defintion of an internal ID.

    Personally, I will refer Map ID as MapSource Product ID, and is the same as FID. For the unique ID of a map tile, I will call it Map Tile ID, or Tile ID (TID) for short.

    Sometimes you can get info directly from Garmin, for example if you remove a tile from mapset, you can get Mapsource error with Map ID.

    From GMaptool:

    Values:
    GPS ID = 0 - 4294967295
    FID = 0 - 65535
    PID = 0 - 63 (not 0 - 255)
    RgnID = 0 - 63 (not 0 - 255)
    Subregion ID= 0 - 63

    About these 0 starting values in some cases 0 can be used as unlock key, but is or can be wrong in building the map (Region, Subregion,PID)

    Actually it's not that bad

    Family is a set of products, not a single mapset. Single mapset is defined by Family ID and Product ID. Number presented by Mapsource is combined value: 65536*FID + PID

    what?

    PID = 65536*FID + PID

    most of user like that....

    If you'd like to follow observed Garmin terminology, it would be:

    Product id = 65536*FamilyID + ProductID
    Thanks, Kanopus
