    Now webupdate detected - Update 3.70 available and did it.
    Device booted , but still no basemap or map from SD detected....
    Many files and folders in wrong directories!!!!

    GarminDevice.xml and System.xml (and many others, like Text, GPX, POI, etc.) should be in the \Garmin directory, not the root!

    Odd thing is , whatever i try , no maps show up.

    In basecamp it sees basemnap and openmtb map, but device itself does not show any map, neither detects any of cards i have.

    Anyone got 2.51 gcd file for dervice?

    Somehow jawava reports device has 2.51 software, while device itself reports 3.70
    jawava did updated to 3.70, now mass storage is accessible normnal way , hold up button and plug USB.
    With any lower version it will only boot to mass storage with 066101000230.rgn (cure image)


    And GPS Software is reported 2.90 (Netherland's GPS forum mentioned 3.0 update avail for devices suffering incorrect device Date/Time - mine shows 1. Jan. 2000)

    Any more hints, how to solve it ?

    Arvi has been banned from forum it seems, and sort of is unreachable by gsm (all busy signal - prolly me blacklisted...)


    EDIT Reason additional questions:

    After looking in to BIN files, Nüvi has fw1_resource.bin as well while extracting GCD file, while Colorado does not have it.
    But on Reset this Language "Õ" is displayed , i start suspecting some part of firmware is somehow gone…

    What are the names of the maps??

    What folder are you putting the maps in both on the SD card and in the memory of the Colorado 300????

    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    The folder name both on the memory and SD card is \garmin

    Don't lie Andrus,when I got the device from you it doesn't read any cards and you told me in advance that you don't recognize the maps.From this link I can see that I put 3 maps on the device and recognized everyone

    There is no need to help such people who are lying .Andrus stay away from navigation devices,you are dangerous to them.

    Read the post #6 Andrus writes "Update is, device is bookingu now but not showing any Maps. No Basemap or any other.
    Maps I used are unlocked.

    How to see Files Under Linux/Mac/Windows I know, this is no vase.

    AS whole .system foldeevwas not present... by Very start when I got unit.

    My tõuget was - perhaps there should be present some registratsiooni file ... to show Maps?"

    FileName is on card \Garmin\gmapsupp.img
    The one I downloaded from openmtb site.

    I had old cards , bought new and same. Taking card from my boatiing GPS, 76csx Does not work too.

    I know file gmapsupp.img on colorado may need .unl file if locked.

    Arvi, yes I saw those pictures, but somehow whatever I tried, this was firstplace why I askeldamine on foorum to solve IT free of Charge.
