    I see the problem now. You can't 'import' image files to the computer HDD itself as such. BaseCamp & HomePort can use them if they are already loaded to a unit which is connected to the PC, or similarly on a connected media card or USB flash drive [x:\Garmin\*.img], or on a virtual SD in Garmin folder: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Thanks again for the help.
    After unzipping the file is MS=0 but after loading using IMDisk it still says no unlocked maps on device. I did convert it to a 10GB file? but it is now just 3.??GB

    Agggghhhh! Don't treat a Garmin img file that way. It's a Garmin proprietary file format, not a 'normal' img file at all. Don't do anything with it after decompressing it, only unlock it. If you don't have a Garmin device, just put the *.img file [name it gmapsupp.img, that ALWAYS works] in a Garmin folder on a card, usb stick or virtual SD as i said.

    I see what the problem was now, listening to a JW drinker

    Woke up, clean install and extract and put on USB drive and worked like a dream in minutes

    Thanks for your help

    Sadly, many of the links on the file-server sites are now dead, enough to prevent a full RAR set. At best, I was able to get all but parts 2, 3, & 9 from one of the FileFactory sets, the one by ozboss in post #5. If anyone could help with those parts or with a full unlocked set, it would be, well, helpful.

    Why not try openmapchest website

    This is part of the openstreet maps.

    Maps are free

    Spoiler: Australia and New Zealand
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    I use openstreet topo maps for years I find them more detailed and are updated all the time.


    Spoiler: I quote them:
    "This site provides replacement maps for Garmin Nuvi series devices. The maps will also work on handheld Garmin devices (eTrex, Oregon, Dakota, Colorado, Montana, Colorado, GPSMAP 62) and the older Garmin StreetPilot devices if the device has an SD Card slot.

    The maps are created using map data provided the OpenStreetMap project, a user-editable map of the world. Like all maps, the maps provided by this site might have some errors. You are encouraged to fix any problems you find directly in OpenStreetMap. Simply navigate to the area you would like to update and click the "Edit" button near the top of the page.

    The maps on this site are refreshed biweekly so that users can benefit from fixes and updates without much delay.

    The maps are created using the mkgmap map compiler. You can create your own maps by following the mkgmap map creation guide."

    V6 has been out for some time. It unlocks like any other.
    A few days ago, a HEMA Australia map was released both with Garmin Topo V6 included, and as a standalone raster map.
    I don’t suppose that one can be copied without a CID changeable card (it definitely can be copied that way). It’s a set of 54 jnx files, and HEMA POIs.
    Interestingly, the HEMA raster map has an img file called “HEMA single point map”, which is nothing but one rectangle border, and one point called “Australia”.
