    Hi Caty. Should be safe to run it in the unit's inserted sd card though, shouldn't it? But thinking about it, why would you bother doing that either.
    @Neil&Jfath - You know FIU has finished when it closes itself, you'll see the countdown before closing. Use latest version
    Have only ever had the latest one (April 11) and it's only ever happened very occasionally using winxp, never with 7. It just hangs forever sometimes, never gets to the countdown but the image is always unlocked. Not a real problem, just curious as to why it happens & thought it was just me until i saw Jfaith's comment who's also had it happen only using XP Pro 32 (and i assume SP3 same as me). Not a problem for me or him as we can use win7 for large maps.

    I wanted to try to put the FSI program on the unit itself ( It's an older 2730 with NO card slot ) since it's taking 8-10 HOURS to move the Unlocked image back onto the unit.

    It's freaking driving me crazy that it's taking so long.

    I had at first, tried using a Patched MapSource to send the map to the unit, but I always kept getting a message that the maps were locked.

    When sending the map (CNNA2012.30) to the 2730, there were TWO GMA files created.

    I've done this many times before, but I must have forgotten the proper procedure.

    So I decided to let the "locked" image load to the 2730 and then either put the FIU program on the unit, OR copy the locked img to my PC... use FIU... and then reload it back onto the GPS unit.

    But putting the unlockerd img back on the 2730 is what is takign forever.

    I understand your problem ,but it's risky, dont stop FIU in any case when running .

    CatyMag. Thanks for the caution warning.

    I have decided NOT to try running FIU directly on my GPS. If something goes wrong... it's going to cost me more time and more headaches.

    So I'm just copying over the unlocked img to the unit.

    It has stepped up in speed for some reason and is onyl going to take an hour. Still a long time, but a LOT better then 10 hours.

    What bothers me is why the Patched MS did not transfer the map without causing the maps to end up being locked.

    And bothered with good reason, especially if somehow gma files were created with a map unlocked in mapsource. I've got CNNTNA2012.30 on my 1300, loaded the gmap folder unlocked with Garmin gmap and family maps (Mapsource) unlocker in patched MS 6.16.3 and sent it to the unit. Does that match up with what you used and did first attempts with your 2730?

    In my case only the .img file appears on the unit and it's fully functional without further unlocking by FIU.
    I'm hoping the gma files were just left over from old purchased maps you'd removed previously. Are you sure they were created during attempts to load NA this time?
    EDIT: Makes sense now.. just reread your post... i thought you had unlocked it in MS. Duh! i really need to read things properly. But why couldn't you unlock in MS anyway, were you using jetmmouse instead of Garmin gmap and family maps (Mapsource) unlocker?

    I guess I was having another "Senior Moment" when I neglected to enter an unlock code into MS since I actually did generate a code with JM.

    I put the code into an unlock file on my 2730 and assumed when I transferred the Maps using MS all would be OK and unlocked. I thought I was using a Patched MapSource and I could tranfer maps without having unlock problems. Perhaps I had not moved the Patched exe into the directory properly, but I'll double check that. With the patched MS, is it still necessary to have the patched "MapInstaLL" seperately, or will the patched Mapsource have the needed Mapinstall exe included in it ?

    There were definitley TWO GMA files generated. I know for sure becasue I did a full backup of the 2730 before I attempted to do any map updates. *** This is ALWAYS a smart thing to backup B4 changing/updating your GPS.*** There were no GMA files in my backup when I double checked.

    I know... since I had a key I SHOULD have unlocked the map for my 2730 in MS and then just transferred it. That would have been the way to do it. I now smack my head and say "Duh !"

    Anyway... I ended up taking the "locked" img off my 2730 and using FIU to unlock it, and then just copied the "Unlocked" img back onto the 2730 and all is good now.

    I also deleted the GMA files since they are not needed now.

    I appreciate the refresher info.

    Yeah, well we all have "senior moments" i.e. my previous reply. Anyway, wouldn't have made any difference it you had used a JM unlock code as maps like CNNTNA 2012.30 with id 2200> have the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and JM generated .unl's can't fully unlock them (they're still "unauthenicated").

    Just either run [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in the gmap folder before sending the image from MS (it'll show in MS as "not lockable"), or run FIU on the locked image.

    To ensure you've patched MS check that you've removed the original .exe from the MS folder and replaced with the patched one: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    I guess you had TWO gma files because you sent the locked image to the unit twice.

    Thanks Neil.

    What's the difference between the "Garmin gmap and family maps (Mapsource) Unlocker and "Fast Image Unlocker" ?

    As unlockers names say ,Garmin gmap and family maps (Mapsource) Unlocker, unlocks gmap folders and Family folders for Mapsource maps versions. FIU unlocks IMGs to copy directly in devices.

    What's the difference between a LOCKED map unlocked with this APP and the "directly unlocked version"?

    I mean, both versions are shared in download sites...but why share a locked version? (I'm totally newbie with garmin unlockers but i downloaded "unlocked img" before).


    EDIT: well, part of the answer was already answered in the previous post.
