    I have not read too much information about the new locking strategy embedded in the latest software/firmware release from Garmin.

    If you use this Alternative Unlocker to unlock the maps/charts, will it defeat any of the software/firmware checks for legitimate maps on the device ? Or do you have to be sure you keep your software/firmware version below a certain point ?

    Using the new 5.31b unlocker, do you still need to run the MapSource Reverser and THEn the unlocker ?

    Map Reverse Converter is needed only if you are unlocking maps in MapSource with Garmin Unlocker (All.bat), it has nothing to do with unlocking image files.
    Don't worry, for now you can use unlocked maps safely. Any map could be locked, and not locked. Unlocked map is map that is actually locked, but has unlock code inside or in unl file which Garmin device (or program) is using to unlock map.
    There could be way to device (or program) as new versions of MapSource, MapInstall and UnlockWizard, analyze this unlock code and detect it is illegal.
    When map is unlocked with this tool (or Fast IMG unlocker, or Garmin Unlocker - All.bat) it has actual status not locked, so any Garmin device or program could not "see" that it was locked at any time, and "thinks" it was never locked, so for now, no way to find out it is illegal - no unlock code to analyze.

    [QUOTE=pietu;587132]Garmin unlocker Alternative v5.31b - (07.07.2010)

    1. copy your IMG file "MAP Locked" directory

    2. write your map details in MapName.txt file

    eg. "Europe (Unlocked)" without quotes (50 characters allowed)

    3. Run "UNLOCK MAP DIRECTORY.EXE"

    4. now you have GMAPSUPP.IMG inside "MAP UnLocked" directory
