Is there any way to unlock the UK 1:50K Maps without 64-bit Windows or /3GB switch?
Downloaded Fast IMG unlocker v. 1.3 and v 1.5 . Uncompressed it and got the executable files with a lock icon. When I run the file, nothing happens.
Not sure, why the exe file is not running. I tried to wait for ages, but nothing happening.
you most have both map img file and fast img unlocker.exe in same folder before you run fast img unlocker

I figured it out. Thanks, but still img file wouldnt work, but will report the same on that thread.
I attempted to use V1.5 update 12-12.2010 and ran into this problem.
Map source North American NT 2011.31, every thing seems to work except when I attempt to search for addresses.
There seems to be no streets in the search database.
City are there.
If I select and address using the map, there is no problems seeing address nor routing to them.
BTW, I used GarminUnlockerAlternativev5.71 on the same img file with no problems.
It's your problem, probably you havent run it correctly, search is ok after unlocking-
Tested many times in many devices-
catymag, by your reply it is obvious you did not read my post fully.
I will reiterate what I posted.
Two different unlock programs.
Same source img file (North American NT 2011.31)
Same destination Garmin GPS Unit (765T)
For fun, the results are the same if I copy the unlocked img files to a Garmin 76CX.
One program works (GarminUnlockerAlternativev5.71)
One does not. (Fast IMG Unlocker v.1.5 update 12-12-2010)
I attempted to eliminate the operator error part of the troubleshooting steps.
I am not saying that this might not be unique to my equipment / situation, however; since one program does work, it would lead me to believe that there is something in the source file that Fast Img Unlocker is not handling correctly.
I would prefer to use Fast Img Unlocker, mainly because of it's simplicity.
I know by the other threads that Garmin is changing their img files and the newer units/ firmware are requiring GMA Digital certificates and as far as I can tell, this file should be in the latest img format.
I do not know if Fast Img Unlocker is a wrapper for other programs, if so, it might need to be updated to handle the latest imgs.
Since, I found a solution, I am not afforded the luxury to validate this issue in other Garmin Units.
I am merely posting what i discovered just in case:
Someone else runs into the same thing and needs a solution,
and Potentially make the author aware, an update might be needed.
I've read perfectly your post, Fast IMG Unlocker and Unlocker Alternative use the same tools and the same way in unlocking, i never had any search issue in nuvis after using it.
This thread has been posted on 5-10-10 and updated with new versions and purged from some thanking posts, you'r the first one complaining about a search issue after unlocking-Someone else runs into the same thing and needs a solution
