    Thumbs up [SOLVED]Meta Error When Compatible Meta Available

    This isn't my first rodeo, I will forgo the story and lay down the facts:

    Running Northern_US_and_Canada_940.5995 with navcore 9.510

    Made full backup, updated FastActivate, downloaded Northern_US_and_Canada_975_7750 and copied over to TomTom.

    FastActivate log:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    I assumed meta isn't available yet for 975_7750. Checked [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Download compatible meta(s). Tried 975.7748 and 975.7749, both get same dct error.

    Am I missing something simple like firmware/bootloader? According to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the 975.7751 meta is available. I would like to avoid downloading another map since my data is limited, but will if it's the only option.

    Thanks in advance!

    So, where your eyes were earlier????
    As you noticed - the only available meta.txt matches only maps
    Northern_US_and_Canada_975_7686
    Northern_US_and_Canada_975_7751
    Northern_USA_and_Canada_975_7751
    Why have you downloaded the maps, which has NO meta.txt yet?

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to be exact. Why is there a link labeled as "Northern US and Canada 975 7750 with Automatic Installer & Patcher"? Would that not imply the patch (meta.txt) is available for said map? The link is dead but I was able to source the map elsewhere.

    Yes... I noticed that... found the thread... thanks??

    well, you see:

    I came across the thread about swapping metas before downloading the map. I realized my mistake (no available metas to swap which are compatible) shortly after posting this and proceeded to download another map with it's own meta available. I decided to go with USA_Canada_975_7751 (RIP data bill). The transfer to the TomTom was quite slow (due to the hardware limitations of the device) so I went AFK. Came back, proceeded with FastActivate as normal, all went smoothly.

    Next time you better look here before download any map: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Please, no reply with full-quote, not even for stupid people, who have already forgotten the previous post.

    ....because some useless forums have the nerve to post misleading cr4p like that which makes people think there must be a meta for it but, as you've now found out, that type of post is bullshite!
    Please do not post "thanks" but use the "reputation" star(*) bottom/left or "like" bottom/left buttons

    I have to agree it's very misleading, it makes no sense to me either
