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)

Mapset: HXUS039R-US All & Canadian West Coast g2 v2014.5
There were errors, result is faulty.
Looking for latest version of g2 Bluechart HXUS039R "All of US".
I think the last version on here was 2014.5 v16.
