    Default Need to update DNX571HD to latest map

    Hi Experts I need guidance/pointers on how to update my maps to the latest version.

    Using micorsd card , I verified from Garmin that the latest they offer is City Navigator® North America NT 2015 Map Update for Kenwood.

    From the forum it seems like 2016 navigator maps are also out.

    I see the updates here --> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    If i click on 2016 link --> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I see plenty of options. Here is where my confusion starts , what do i download ?

    I think i need to download "Original Image: ALL: Unlocked ".

    Is that correct ?

    Please point me to right sequence of steps which I need to perform to update maps on my kenwood DNX571 ( It has a microSd and a USB slot ) .

    Thanks in advance.

    I downloaded the unlocked IMG file and extracted the contents into an SD card ( 8 GB) . Buy when I put it into the SD card slot, and click on Nav--> Settings --> Update Maps ...nothing happens ...it just tells me that it wrote information on my SD card , which is basically an XML file ......What am i doing wrong ??? The device has the latest 1.6 firmware version ....has Kenwood disabled unlocked file updates for these garmin devices ?

    On SD Card make a folder named "Garmin" and in this folder put the file for map called "gmapsupp".
    SD Card:\Garmin\gmapsupp.img
    If it does not work, rename the file for map in "gmapbmap".
    SD Card:\Garmin\gmapbmap.img

    I was able to resolve the issue. Once the system is up, insert the micorsd card, u will see a notification showing "Loading Maps". After that go to settings, maps and traffic --> My Maps --> Select the 2015/2016 maps and u r done. Without the last step you end up using the old maps.

    Thanks

    So all of what you said Chils, was exactly right. However it seems to be constantly reading new map update from microsd, not actually uploading to unit. Is this correct functionality? If not, how do I get it to upload them read from stored files on head unit of update? Thanks
