    There is Settings/Navigation/Simulate GPS option to test JCV. Set location on highways, create route and watch it go. I can't help with G2S, never used them nor do I know if Streetpilot supports it

    Info on G2S here

    Thanks. Is it possible to get 3D files for individual countries. The only 3D file I come across is 659mb.

    Usually 3D files are released with .img map files. They go in Map folder just like .img map files. You can check [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for maps/3d/jcv of countries interests you.

    Looked all over but cant find one for UK only. Tried experimenting by splitting this large one but it splits into lots of different files with various numbers for names so I am no wiser. I found jcv files for uk but no 3D.

    Can you also please tell me what the G2S file is for and where to place.

    Edit:
    Thanks for the after info. I see them now. Above display was from PC connected to phone and various folders are hidden.
    To test the JCV Functions without real Drive
    - Setting
    -Navigation
    -GPS Simulator ( GPS Simulator For Indoor Use Only ) - Thick Right
    -Set where to go locations - It will simulated the route

    In order to save some space you have to create a new "UK-3D Buildings" file every time the CNENTU 20xx.xx is updated.
    The created file is about 66 MB so its BIG difference!!!


    HOW TO CREATE A SINGLE COUNTRY 3D BUILDINGS FILE

    (You need to have Mapsource program and Mapsource version of CN Europe NTU 2015.30 installed on your PC)

    1. unlock the original gmap3d.img file
    2. on your PC create a folder, ie UK Buildings 3D-2015.30
    3. open the unlocked file with Gmaptool
    4. use the folder from 2. to split the gmap3d.img file "for Mapsource"
    5. Enter UK Buildings 3D-2015.30 as the mapset name and enter a random number for FID (ie 1945) and PID:1
    6. Run install.bat from inside UK Buildings 3D-2015.30 folder to install Europe's 3D Buildings on your PC (in Mapsource)
    Now the ...tricky part!!!
    7. open Mapsource, choose CN Europe NTU 2015.30 from you map list and center UK map at zoom level 200Km (so all UK is on your screen)
    Spoiler: .

    8. close Mapsource
    9. open Mapsource again and the UK map is now centered on your screen (don't close it)
    10. open another Mapsource and now choose from your map list the UK Buildings 3D-2015.30 map (you will see nothing on screen-far away zoom level- but your screen is now centered in UK map, like in the first Mapsource)
    Spoiler: .

    11. in the second Mapsource choose the "Map Tool" and by clicking and dragging the mouse select all the square map tiles that are about UK.
    Use the first Mapsource (with NTU 20.15) as reference to which map tile to select on the second Mapsource.
    Spoiler: .

    This is what I mean "as reference" as I layered up the two screens in Photoshop, all the available UK area is covered properly.

    12. in the second Mapsource change Mapsource's "Map Set Name" from default to: CN Europe NTU 2015.30 3D - (UK)
    13. send the map to your device or PC or sdCard
    14. rename the file name from gmapsupp.img to Buildings 3D - UK.img
    15. open the Buildings 3D - UK.img with Gmaptool and press "Change" and in Map name filed enter CN Europe NTU 2015.30 3D - (UK) so the map appears with the right name in the myMaps list on your device (map name=mapset name)

    Here is the "UK only" 3D Buildings NTU-2015.30 ready to be copied to your device MAP folder:

    Installed on Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0 (SM-T110) 4.2.2 non-root.

    Does not display map correctly. Must be incompatible with GPU.

    Thank you very much for the info.
    Out of curiosity will the supplied CN Europe NTU 2015.30 3D file work ok with CN Europe NT 2015.20 map or will I have to create a NT 2015.20 3D file

    Since the 3D Buildings (NTU 2015.30) file is unlocked, it can work OK with any kind of map, not just CN Europe NTU or NT.
    It is displayed over any road map in myMaps list!!!
    gmap3d.img for NTU is updated 4 times a year but NT is updated only 2 times.
    NTU's 3D Buildings is larger than NT's (for UK is 0.4 mb larger).

    Thanks once again, very informative.
    Also out of curiosity is it possible to dissect a larger jcv file into separate countries similar to the way you explained with the 3d ones. Nice to learn something new every day.
