    Question Nuvi 1490 Keyboard QWERTY files (solved)

    Hi All,

    I was trying to update firmware of my Nuvi 1490. I noticed that it wasn't showing much junction views. Out of lack of knowledge, I formatted the whole thing. It still boots up, I updated map with Map Updater and then figured out from this forum that I need the latest and biggest JCV file. All of that works nicely.
    However formatting caused QWERTY keyboard to go away I was a moron not to backup anything.
    So how do I bring the QWERTY back ?
    Tried downgrading firmware etc, no luck. Any of the Garmin software won't show me keyboard files again
    Please help!

    Thanks a lot.
    So do I need to just copy the keyboard folder with all kbd files to Garmin directory ?

    I did that but still no qwerty/abcd option shown. It just shows American English. Am I missing something ?

    Put Keyboards folder to root directory!
