    If you use a USB pen drive, with nuvi files inside, Garmin programs think you have a Nuvi Connected and will gladly load maps to it.
    Sorry but even my network connection speed is greater then USB. I do not say about harddisk. I get the ready for use update of all possible files of CityNav from Garmin faster than copy just one img file to USB.

    I dunno if you and dirtbikermp3 are misunderstanding what dasilvarsa meant, or maybe i am. I think he's suggesting exactly what i usually do and he puts Garmin (and .system if appropriate) folders etc on a usb stick or sd card to send maps to it, so they can be checked before copying onto the unit. I also do that with Webupdater to get gupdate.gcd and other updates direct from Garmin at times. Perhaps he does that too.

    Yes That's exactly what I do.
    I call it making a FALSEGARMIN (Copy the Whole Nuvi Contents including the .System Folder to USB PEN DRIVE)
    It serves a second purpose which is of an OFF SITE BACKUP
    All Garmin programs Basecamp,Mapinstall, Mapsource including Webupdater and MyDashboard are fooled into thinking you have a real Nuvi Connected.
    If the Internet connection is faster that USB2, Then the computer will cache the data.

    The advantage of using this method is that you don't brick your Nuvi if the Transfer fails halfway for any reason whatsoever.
    Using an SD Card connected to the Computer or a VIRTUAL SD is just as safe as using a USB PEN DRIVE.
    I prefer the USB PEN DRIVE as I have lots of 4GB's to spare.

    Point is not in Internet! As say my IT people: we'll take all that can give your requested server - let us statement of work and a couple of hundred square meters only. But USB PEN DRIVE is slowest and unreliable device for storage today. The only reason to use it is a small size.
    I use BaseCamp and Mapsource very often and very very grateful for the patch. I can keep the files on the harddisk and test it directly in the same at the moment (Nuvis and other "my" Garmin are in other places of Europe or in Russia usually and I need to send already tested and ready version). VIRTUAL SD is good as variant too but it is need to configure! I just think illogical to write data to a USB PEN DRIVE that would then reupload them to a computer for processing...

    I see your point and respect it.
    I have also used Patched Versions of the Applications in the past.

    Ditto for me. However, I have both original and patched versions on different drives and use both. I do usually use the 'nuvi stunt-double', i.e. usb stick/sd card/virtual sd methods both to obtain fw updates and to load maps from gmap folders for out-of-warranty units though. For in-warranty units I consider it's Garmin's problem if i follow their instructions and any trouble results. Last month i sent a new unit back which bricked during the numaps guarantee update. Don't know why and don't care why (i could have fixed it myself, but Garmin don't expect you to be able to do that of course). It was replaced immediately and without question. Would they have taken responsibility if it was out of warranty and an LM or paid map dl went wrong? Not without a huge fight i suspect. I really have no idea what their policy is if their fw or an official map dl 'bricks' an old unit. But what if an unofficial map was found by them on any unit, whether in or out of warranty, would there be any repercussions? I think maybe so.

    The same as dasilvarsa, i respect that people have different points of view about this and see different advantages for various methods. My personal philosophy is to avoid putting 'unofficial' maps in the internal memory of any unit, whether new or old. Just safer on SD imo. Horses for courses, though.

    Since I have owned a nüvi I have always used MapInstall to send maps to the device rather than allowing Garmin's automated software to do the work. But until the maps no longer fit I had always sent the map to internal storage. Once I found the patched MapInstall executables on this site, I changed my routine and sent the maps to the hard drive to be copied to the device by me.

    Now that none of the units I have access to can fit the entire map on their internal storage, it's simply a matter of copying to the SD/MicroSD card. In the case of the 1300 I have, the Junction View file goes on internal storage so the space isn't wasted.
