Thanks i70 for sharing your experience. Thanks for your comments but I am an "OLD DONKEY" and I have spent many nights in front of my PC to "juggle" with these devil's things (PCs I mean - for GPS only 3+1 days) Last week a very good friend of mine requested me to load his TOMTOM w/ the map of Argentina - he was going to Argentina in 3 days and asked my help. I was really pressed!!! Though I made a back up of his files, I patched the backup to see what is going on and then his unit: result? Catastrophe!! I messed up his unit -not booting -NOTHING!!! The back-up was messed BEFORE the unit. I spent several hours to Upgrade his system files to a newer version and then managed to load the Argentina map at 04:30 am. He left the next afternoon PHEW!!! So I am a little educated on GPS units from last week on a TomTOM thing which I dealt with for my first time!! I have screwed up also another 455T (I am experienced in catastrophes) so before manipulating all these units (for myself and 3 other friends I would like to get myself more knowledgeable on the subject but unfortunately the experts have not answered yet (it is Sunday eh!)
Thanks for your info but I will not count much on it as it comes from a mobile phone and not a nuvi (GPS unit) - I am not sure there is "full" compatibility...between them - let the more experienced guys help us - and I am a little scared after having meshed up two units the last month...
At least could you please tell me WHERE have you loaded these maps: gmapbmap, gmapprom and gmapprom1 into your unit memory and gmapsupp together w/gmpsup2 in external SD-Card?
By the way about "conflicts" with overlapping maps - What experts say (see below) ...
Thanks anyway- best regards - George (aGreekInParis)

PS: George is searching for the experts - where are they? they went to the church??? Good for them!!! - just joking guys - sorry I am REALLY very tired
