You can't stop this, just ignore this update in GE.
I have a garmin nuvi 1200 sat nav which had a map of Spain and Gibralter on the internal memory
I removed the Spain and Gibralter map and installed an Unlocked Uk map image file on to the internal memory.
When I update via garmin express it wants to reload the Spain and Gibralter map.
How do i stop it from dong this ?
Thanks.Is it possible to update the Uk map ? apart from downloading a newer version. ?
If Spain is your preloaded map, you can update that map only. Nuvi is only entitled to update the 'same geographic area' as OEM.
Just perform the update with Garmin Express. When you follow the standard procedure, you can only update the Spain/Gibraltar maps as you've already noticed.
But GE downloads the full locked Europe map which you can find in "C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\CoreService\Downloads\Map\Map_Map.EUNT.2015.40\RMU\EUNT\2015_40\IMG".
Just uninstall everything but be sure to keep the full locked Europe map (save it somewhere else).
After the uninstall, just install the full locked Europe map by clicking on the msi file.
After that, use a unlock tool like "UnLockMapSource_v5.0" to unlock the Europe maps.
Startup Basecamp, connect your device and you can install any map on the device you want.
GE allows you to install maps on 1) Device only, 2) Device and computer and 3) Computer only. You have to choose "Computer only" and this installs everything on your computer.
Next use Basecamp (installed also during this step) to transfer any map to your device. You need some basic knowledge of Basecamp of course.
