    I can't see that this unit supports 2 images on SD at present. I'm quite certain it didn't when first released and there is nothing in the change history since.

    Garmin do many changes in the quiet mode and it not advertise many changes! I wrote script for extract all supported files and directory from SW. It was very popular for me especially for catching innovation of GMA signature in SW at the time Also it is useful for me than I can see new text variables and change gtt or glx file to according with new strings. My users are very quarrelsome and without delay they throw a can of pot roast in me if something is wrong
    In the report for version 4.70 have gmapsup1.img in SW but for 4.50 do not have yet. You can check it yourself with text viewer and searching in Unicode.

    Well, I'm a bit stunned. I've known for a while that they would do incomplete or meaningless changelogs when it suited them of course [only got to look a GarminExpress for a recent example of that for 'weasel-words' instead of a proper Change History]. But to not crow in the changelog about adding support for a second sd map is very surprising to me which is why i didn't go looking for it.

    It's not that I didn't believe you, but i had to check for myself. Searching for 67 2E 6D 2E 61 2E 70 2E 73 2E 75 2E 70 2E 31 [2E as Joker] in Hex Editor XVl32 with 6x0 fw V4.50 yields naught. In V4.70, 4.80 & 4.90 there are about 5 hits for gmapsup1.

    Can't find it in the latest 4x0/5x0 fw V5.00 though.

    I've done it. Here is the inventory:

    zaYQIV0

    Double surprise for me, these are the file names:

    I don't know why the gmapprom1 didn't work for me during the first testing, but it does now.

    The big surprise is the gmapsup1, which works only in the SD card.

    Hint for others doing this kind of research: you can see at a glance in the folder which files have been recognised and which haven't. The unit creates .sum files for each recognised file.

    Thank you all for your help. I guess I better go and update the wiki now.

    Regards,
    Peter.

    Do you have any errors starting zumo?
    Do you have other routable maps covering the same area in zumo?
    Install

    Hi Catymag,
    Thank you so much for replying.
    Great tool:Jdv, thx for the tip.
    I have found no error in the gmapsupp.img via Jdv.
    Tried following:
    Deleted the gmapsupp.img on the SD card, and used Jdv to install the 2015.20 img. Result: not available in Zumo. (no error indicated by Jdv)
    Deleted the gmapsupp.img on the SD card and used Jdv to install a 2014.40 img Result: same: not available in Zumo. (no error indicated by Jdv)
    Deleted the gmapsupp.img on the SD card, now installed a segment of 2014.40 via mapsource 6.16.3 Noeman fixed . Zumo recognises it fine !
    Deleted the gmapsupp.img on the SD card. now installed same segment of 2015.20 via Basecamp 4.1.2. Noeman fixed.(C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\Maps\City Navigator Europe NT 2015.20.gmap\fixed with Unlock_mapset2.exe) Result: Zumo recognises it fine !
    Deleted the gmapsupp.img on the SD card. now installed whole mapset of 2015.20 via Basecamp 4.1.2. Noeman fixed.(C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\Maps\City Navigator Europe NT 2015.20.gmap\fixed with Unlock_mapset2.exe). Result: not available in Zumo. (no error indicated by Jdv)
    size: 3.23Gb, 534 mapsegments
    Deleted the gmapsupp.img on the SD card. now installed part of mapset of 2015.20 via Basecamp 4.1.2. Noeman fixed.(C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\Maps\City Navigator Europe NT 2015.20.gmap\fixed with Unlock_mapset2.exe). Result: Zumo recognises it fine !

    Whole mapset size: 3.23Gb: not recognised
    Part of mapset: 850 Mb: recognised.

    Is there a 2Gb limit on file size then ? Thought it was 4Gb ?
    Software version 4.80.

    Thx

    There is a maps tiles limit, I looked with Google and found 2025 maps tiles limit for zumo 550,
    that's why you should look at what jdm suggests.
    Edit:
    Limits are 4GB for the map file size and 1000 mp3 songs

    Could be that the size of the map is also a problem. zumo 550 was released about 7 years back and originally had [still has?] the FAT16 2GiB file size limit. Support was added at some point for 4GB+ SDHC cards with FAT32, but maybe not for >4GiB file size limit. Of the same vintage, nuvi series 2x0/3x0/5x0/6x0/7x0 were all released around 6 to 8 years ago and all originally had the same 2GiB file limit. All of those now also support SDHC cards with FAT32 but notably only some support file size limit to 4 GiB. nuvi 3x0 and 6x0 for instance are still stuck with under 2GiB, so maybe the same with zumo 5x0?
