    At the moment, this sd card can't be used. Hopefully our specialists find a way to change this status.

    I once saw an unused card (don't have access to it anymore). There were *.unl files on it.
    Probably when the card is used for the first time in a car, the maps are unlocked in combination with the FIN of this car.
    As lolypop000 wrote, changings of the garmindevice.xml will probably have no effect, it's garmin style to create a new file during the start-up procedure.
    So the maps are only useable in the car with the correct FIN (and maybe other codes of identification), until a way is found to unlock the maps generally (like it is possible on garmin PDAs)

    What maps are available on this SD card?

    Off topic question: has anyone tried to run iGO / Primo from an SD card? I'd guess the main exe has to be renamed to navi_pch.

    Thanks

    @pusti123
    Do you remember how many uni files in an unused sd card
    Creating these files is not easy and is risky
    The software also works as the xml file is not on it
    other cards I want to test if this work
    can someone show me the way to these cards

    The software works, when activate it, there is a message "can't unlock the map". It can detect gps and direction but there is no map show.

    Can someone advise how to unlock the map? Do you know which files are map.

    If we can't unlock map, can we buy the new map?

    @thewutty

    I think if you instal mercedes manager tool, you can update your device and also buy maps.
    Mercedes map format is different from other maps, so this will take time before someone find out how to unlock map.

    This will not happen in days or two, but maybe in month or more.

    the cards are in the NDS directory
    these are numerous NDS files
    they all work together and make it as the detailed map on the world map
    if you leave this directory path you do not get the message"can't unlock the map".
    but you still have the world map without roads, this is an image file in the root of the SD card

    @RS748:
    Sorry, I can't remember how many *.unl-files there were on the sd card, and in which folder they were located.
    Meanwhile the card is no longer unused...
