    Default How unlock img TOPO?

    Hi.
    I bought TOPO maps for the Fenix 6x pro watch.
    I have an .iso file and the seller has provided an unlock file.
    Can I unlock the TOPO map for EDGE 530?
    As?

    First of all:

    As for unlock a map you got for Fenix 6x pro watch I do not think the unlock code will work with your EDGE 530

    If you need to use the commercial Garmin map on the EDGE 530 you will have to pay for an unlock code.

    There are lots of free TOPO maps that do not need to have an unlock code.

    I have an .iso file
    All these type of files need to be converted to be able to install them.

    @kosor
    What TOPO maps ?
    Garmin provides .img files and .unl files ,are they the seller.
    Garmin's .img extension is often associated automatically with ISO Image software as that extension is not unique to Garmin but are not Image files.

    Are the maps working on your Fenix 6x pro watch ?
    Looking at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] they say "The map license is assigned directly to the supplied microSD / SD memory card" did you buy the maps on a SD card or download them. If you bought them as downloaded you would have had to provide them with your 10 digit device ID number for your Fenix 6x pro watch so they could generate the .unl.

    This is how it works for me on the Fenix6x pro. I sent the seller the GarminDevice.xml file.
    He sent back some files to unlock the map.
    Now I wanted to use the map in Edge 530

    Your garmindevice.xml contains your device ID which they used to generate the .unl specific to your Fenix 6x pro watch.
