    This is an universal firmware patcher for protected Garmin devices.
    Many devices recently have a strong firmware protection and cannot use unlocked maps because firmware requires .gma and has MSV ( Map Signature Verification).

    In this list you will be able to check if your device firmware requires this patcher or if it just needs gingunlock+mapsigpatch or simply an .unl file or old gimgunlock.

    Important note by MOD: Please check in attached list, in spoilers below, if you need to flash patched .rgn in preboot mode or if you simply can flash patched.gcd normal way because the original firmware does not contain a GSV check yet (GSV: ---) 2r768ol

    Spoiler: list

    Warning - Improper use of this software can damage your device: It's strongly recommended to backup your device files and NV before playing with firmware. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Procedure to use the patcher and to load the patched firmware in preboot mode ("GSV: Yes" devices) :

    Prerequisite:must have Garmin USB drivers installed to use Updater.exe.

    1) Remove any gupdate.gcd in your device.

    2) Set it to Mass Storage. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    3) Download the patcher (new version 1.10 updated on 04-03-16):

    (Changelogs:
    DriveLuxe50 and Drive and Drive Smart 60/70 added [thanks Philipych])
    Earlier:fixes to have a more universal and flexible tool.

    4) Copy the patcher in a directory along your firmware gupdate.gcd [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Note: be sure to get your device HWID firmware, check it in garmindevice.xml ( [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] ) or here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    5) Drop the gupdate.gcd in its window. The patcher will provide the patched gcd file as 'gupdate_patched.gcd' in your chosen directory.2r768ol

    6) Download RGNTool from here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    7) Drop your gupdate_patched.gcd in RGN_Tool and save it as an .rgn file. Important: Save it only in this format 'xxxx01000yyy.rgn' where 'xxxx' is your used firmware's 4 numeral HWID and 'yyy' is the software version. See [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for naming reason safety and procedure.

    8) Download Updater.exe from here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Copy Updater.exe in a directory along your firmware.rgn, drag the .rgn in Updater.exe icon, Updater.exe will open, tick USB

    Remember to remove any previous gupdate.gcd in your device, before flashing any updates.
    Now plug your device to your pc and device will start and immediately, as Garmin logo appears press upper left corner to get preboot mode and make Updater.exe to see your device, at that point click OK (still holding upper left corner untill the flashing process is finished and Updater will show "Success!") Safely unplug device from pc. Some devices reach preboot differently - All devices Preboot Mode : [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    9) Clear Non Vol.(note: if you don't want to get weird problems, do it!) Nuvi: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or reset your device [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    You are done, your device is unprotected, now you can use every kind of unlocked maps (NTU too).

    2r768ol

    NOTE: To flash a firmware update in the future, just patch the new gupdate.gcd, remember to remove any previous gupdate.gcd in your device, flash new fw normally with WebUpdater (drag&drop the file in WebUpdater shortcut on desktop) or copy it renamed gupdate.gcd in the sd:\Garmin or in Device's .System. 2r768ol You can even flash initially via patched GCD file if your unit has no GSV in firmware.

    Warning - Improper use of this software can damage your device: It's strongly recommended to backup your device files and NV before playing with firmware. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    7RTJsF4 Warning for Montana 680 users:
    after loading patched firmware, reset the unit and disable Geocache Dashboard in map settings before using unlocked map or the unit locks up when it is selected.

    Most likely you made a mistake in the procedure or used the wrong firmware. First be absolutely sure about the firmware for your device. Basically you can try to redo the whole procedure with the correct firmware. If it does not work, you will have to install a Cure firmware and then the original firmware. See the procedures in this link:

    Hi, I have a question

    I successfully patched the device.
    however, in the future, if I want to resell to someone, how to go back to protected mode?

    My guess:
    download official GCD from Garmin.
    convert GCD to RGN
    use updater to flash GGN to device.
    all done...

    is the above procedures correct?

    thank you

    Does anybody know: if I update my Nuvi 3490 FW from 8.20 to 8.30 will it become a Protected Garmin Device? Also, is there an updated firmware list and where to find it? The latest I have is of Oct 16, 2016.

    Hello
    I have Nuvi 55LM(North America-Only lower 49 states) and HW ID 1697, I patched FW 5.40 and stuck after that. I tried loading patched GUPDATE.gcd directly to .system directory(ofcourse deleted the old one) and rebooted and nothing happens and boots normal and loads the current map only but if I install SD card with complete unlocked North America map, it still says cannot unlock map and maps corrupted.
    Am I missing something here?
    Any directions are highyly appreciated and some of the tool links are dead (Garmin updater.exe, RGN tool.
    Thank you
