    Excuse me, but i'm a newbies.

    What's the difference between an img file and a mapsource file?

    I've succeed to unlock map in base camp, how can i do to transfer it in my device (oregon with the ultimate firmware)

    Thanks for all

    Arrow IMG vs. MapSource

    IMG maps can be two things. Normally we talk about a Garmin map container file like "gmapsupp.img". It can also be a img file (like "0000004.img" for a single map tile in MapSource.
    It's possible to build a IMG map container with MapSource and you can select which map segments/tiles that you want and even mix from different installed map products.
    Try to view IMG files (booth types) with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to get a feel of whats inside.

    If you have a map installed as a MapSource map and it shows up in BaseCamp, then you can use MapInstall or MapSource to transfer the map to your Oregon unit.
    The IMG versions are ready to be copied directly to the GPS unit. If it's locked then it must be unlocked with a unlock key or some unlocker like the one in this thread.

    New maps with MapID >= 2200 needs the GMA digital certificate for authentication in devices with newer firmware. In that case one needs to use an unlocker to remove the locking mechanism from the IMG file. The unlock code just unlocks but doesn't authenticate the map then the product is GMA aware.

    Thank you,

    The problem is that the Map ID > 2200, so i have installed it on base camp, using the patched version (it's ok, the map is unlocked) but ican't transfert it to the GPS (the map has unauthentified status)
    I don't have any *.img so i can't use the img unlocker.
    Is it possible to generate an img file with basecamp?

    Thanks for all and excuse me for my english.

    In BaseCamp you can use the "Tools" menu and select menu item "Install Maps on Selected Device..." (menu items mentioned for English language version). The menu item is only enabled if you have selected the valid destination for the map. It then starts the "MapInstall" program for the actual map build and transfer.
    It's a good idea to have the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to handle maps with MapID >= 2200. Install original MapInstall from Garmin and replace EXE-file with the patched one, the same procedure as with patched BaseCamp.
    The map could be built to a HD destination ([X]:\Garmin\gmapsupp.img) and then using a suitable unlocker. After it's unlocked it could be copied to the Oregon unit and also be renamed to a suitable "map_name.img" file.

    Hi,
    I have a 3790T and even maps with ID<=2200 have problems because they cannot be authenticated. I have tried to unlock img file but after this unlock, my unit does not see the maps saved in img file.

    Any ideas welcomed.
