    I have been battling a problem for a whole day. I installed City Navigator Europe 2016 on Mapsource and then extracted a smaller map (to suit the memory size of Goldwing built-in satnav. Mapsource reported that the map was unlocked but the smaller map would not authenticate on my satnav. Ran Gimgunlocker directly on my Nuvii 50 satnav and hey presto, the map was unlocked and works perfectly. Congratulations to the developers for a great tool.
    Now all I need is new firmware for my Goldwing Navi unit so that it can read the NT maps. At present I have firmware version 2.3 installed but I think the new version 2.8 will run on the unit and allow NT maps to be read.
    Does anyone have any information on this (also a copy of the firmware 2.7 or 2.8 would be really useful.

    cheers every - great forum

    Stephen

    G'day Stephen, welcome to GPSPower.

    If it's a 2006 - 2008 'Wing we have EU Version 2.60 fw which will run NT maps: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. You won't be able to search for POIs by name with an unlocked [non-original] map though, kb will be greyed out. More details in the US fw threads about that, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    PS: Best not to use MapSource to make 'short-cut' map img files from modern CNNT gmap folders. You might get strange routing or even crash errors using MS. To be safe, use only [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for compiling maps from PC to send to your media card, MS is ok for sending routes etc though.

    Default Nuvi 66LM Question and FW 2.80 on demand.

    Hi !
    I recently have in my hands for a while a never connected Nuvi 66LM with FW 2.8.
    In case someone needs a copy of the FW, please give me instructions what to copy for you.

    Aside, I just wanted to ask:
    1. How to reach the folder where the map(s) are ? I tried enabling "show hidden folders" menu in Win8, but no dice. Unit is with 8GB internal memory, and shows in PC: 2.8 free of 7.1. No mSD card yet.
    2. Shall this unit with this FW be able to read unlocked maps, though ? What about unlocked Cyclops ?

    Best regards

    55/56/65/66 can again use unlocked maps as of Version 4.40 fw.: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    1. See: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    2. (a) See Post #431 above, latest V4.40 is ok: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. (b) Cyclops gpi files are totally different to map img files and are not affected by recent firmware changes as were maps. Cyclops unlocked FID 65535 files [no unl code needed] or FID 700/900 [with unl code] will work in all xx series including your nuvi 66:

    2xx, 3x0, 465, 5x0, 6x0, 7xx, 8xx & 1xxx series.

    Models where JM codes work only with 700 or 900 (2496 won't work):
    xx, 2xxx & 3xxx.

    Hi again,

    Firstly, I really APPRECIATE your detailed reply !
    Hats Off !
    I read carefully all your suggestions and links.

    Secondly, just to report:
    1. I changed the MTP mode, and it worked. Small clearance is, that it was NOT needed to restart the unit, after the change, in order to appear the hidden folder. That's opposite to instruction, just to mention.
    2. As per what I've read here, the FW less than 3.20 (including) is able to read NT maps.
    FW 4.20 was not, but FW 4.40 is able again too.
    the device is currently with 2.8, so presumably it should be able to read unlocked NT map.
    I tried one local and one EU - both without luck.
    3. I 'm a bit scared to upgrade to 4.40 FW. The unit is temporarily available for me, so I must be able to revert it to stock condition, i.e. FW 2.80. Is this possible, in case I decide to try FW 4.40 ?
    4. Regarding Cyclops - still not tried (because lack of map) but I fully trust you and will try unlocked ones, regardless of the FW used.

    Have a nice day !

    It's technically the exit from it's normal mode or a power down that completes the change. When you connected to the PC, the unit was changed from it's normal state to MSM [or MTP if that was selected].

    2. As per what I've read here, the FW less than 3.20 (including) is able to read NT maps.

    That's all correct except that with v2.80 you should be able to use any unlocked NT maps.

    Yes. See: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. [The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is a mine of info btw. ]

    4. Regarding Cyclops - still not tried (because lack of map) but I fully trust you and will try unlocked ones, regardless of the FW used.
    They'll work fine, not firmware dependent like maps as i said.

    Hello Neil, thanks for all the good work, do we still not have a solution for unlocking maps on Nuvicam?

    Have a nice day....

    Hi guys, a friend of mine bought a nuvi 2597LMT preloaded with north american maps. he asked if I could put europe maps on the SD card so I went ahead and downloaded unlocked europe map but the gps says it cannot unlock it? from a quick browse on this forum i deducted that the 2597 cannot read unlocked maps, correct?

    SW version on it is 7.60

    Alternatevly, is it possible to downgrade to a lower version so it could read the said maps?

    Thanks in advance
    -blood
