    NUVI Garmin Nuvi 205 MODDED firmware for Bicycle use

    Hi Guys!

    I have an old Garmin Nüvi 205. Its a great unit, more than 10 years old, but still works like a charm.
    I replaced the battery, and the new one lasts for about 4 hours.
    So I decided to use it for cycling.
    But I can not upload route plans to the navi, because of the original FW.

    Does somebody made a modded FW for this unit?
    Please help.
    Thanks a lot!

    Nobody???

    I think you missed the title a bit. It is not firmware for cyclists, then with restrictions removed
    And why don't you try little googling

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.

    Hello,

    First of all: Thanks for the answer!
    But I dont have 205W!
    I have the older 205. Without "W" - my unit comes with normal 4:3 screen, not widescreen!
    There are a lot of tweaks for the models with widescreen. I know...

    Of course I used google for searching, but I didnt find anything about the subject.

    ExpertGPS: I dont need to convert GPX files.
    I need to upload this files, but the original Nuvi 205 doesnt accept it!

    Do you see what I mean? I hope this makes it clear
    I am looking for a modified firmware for this unit. I think there is no other way to upload gpx files, only the modified fw...
    Any other ideas?
    thx!

    Tool Firmware modification for cycling needed HELP! (GPX upload) Old Nüvi 205 250

    Hello Guys,

    I have an old Nüvi 205 and Nüvi 250.
    They are NOT Wide. (not 205W and 250W)

    They are very good units, with new battery. Both battery lasts for about 3-4 hours.

    I decided to use them on my bicycle. Everything fine with them, the only problem is: GPX files can not be uploaded.


    Please, maybe somebody could help me.
    I need a modified firmware. If I could upload gpx files, it would be the best navi for cycling!
    I dont want to spend 200-600 eur for a cycling unit...
    thanks a lot!

    All you need to do is copy your GPX files to the folder \garmin\GPX be it on the memory of the unit or the SD card is you have one.

    Connect your Garmin to your PC via the USB connection.

    Copy the GPX files to the correct folder........

    Plus you asked this question last year.


    Tnx

    This unit can not accept gpx files. Yes, You can upload it, but there is no option in the menu to use the gpx file.
    this is the reason i am searching for a modified firmware.

    ooops, sorry, yes, I asked this past year... sorry...
    but still nothing.

    You have to upload the GPX files via Mapsource or Basecamp from Garmin to the 205.

    Manually coping the files will not work.
