    I think it's better to connect those pins with a wire. Otherwise your hand could move accidentally and connect some other pins, which is not what you want.

    Yes. Don't disconnect them. It's perfectly ok to leave them connected if you're just trying to enter pre-boot mode, not flashing the firmware.

    Garmindevice.xml is created every time the device is cold booted.
    Data changes depending on which files are installed in the device and a lot of the data also comes from region 41.(and possibly other regions)
    A corrupt garmindevice.xml usually means that there is corruption elsewhere in the device's complex memory structure.

    Kenwood have different garmindevice.xml like others unit.
    If you read with care what @dasilvarsa wrote to you then you will find out that if you add different xml in your device nothing will change, becouse on every boot new xml is created, but if xml is not auto created then something is very wrong with your device and nuvi can't read/write garmindevice.xml
    If you wish, you can [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
