again, sorry for my ignorance on this one, and THANKS for the guidance!!!!!!
I'm getting closer...
Got the img file and dragged/dropped to the gimgunlock.exe file - all seemed good; saw the script running, etc.
Copied that img file onto a brand new SanDisk 8 GB micro SD, popped it in my GPSMap78SC and when I go to select maps, I don't see anything new. Same maps from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]that are loaded into the internal memory.
Worldwide DEM Basemap
US Marine Detail g2
As far as I can tell, the memory card was seated properly; I removed and replaced it many times.
did you create a "GARMIN" folder on the SD card first, then put the map into it?

and in case you or someone is looking all over for the latest Gmaptool as I did, here it is:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Checked mine now and it's says just "transparent" and "locked" is gone, so that's what you're looking for.
Just for a try, put the Garmin folder with the map in it on a thumb drive, put it in your computer and try Homeport, now free , to see if it finds it. As I was told here, Homeport will show a locked file as well, plus you will know if your files are set up right then.
Inserted the micro-SD in a standard SD adapter; popped it in the computer...launched homeport, it shows Devices > memory card > untitled.
The file structure on the micro SD is a folder named Garmin and inside it, a file named test.img.
When I launch Gmaptool, I click Add files; navigate to the micro SD and add the test.img file.
I click Info button and the following is output:
Reading file E:/Garmin/test.img.
Bad data in LBL subfile, file E:/Garmin/test.img.
File: E:/Garmin/test.img, length 2947416064
File format errors (4)
Header: 05.08.2014 15:33:06, DSKIMG, XOR 00, V 16.00, Ms 0
Mapset: HXUS039R-US All & Canadian West Coast g2 v2014.5
There were errors, result is faulty.
someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the map file had to be named: gmapsupp.img
and yours is named Test.img.
Your file is not good.
The right file must be like in Gmaptool log in my post n 16, gmapsupp.img, length 2947416064 etc
