Then xml are my next step...
Edit: unless it is in GarminDevice.xml because this file gets overwritten at power-up. I think I can prevent that, but then it means modifying the firmware...
Correct! OMG, where did you get theese numbers?
Everyone who mods his gps has already paid for it.
Some people will request free replacement form Garmin if mod bricks gps.
Some people won't buy next model, when can modify currently owned one.
Some people will buy a new model, because they knew, that it can be modified.
Difficult to estimate, how this change Garmin income, but i agree, that number of people doing mods is insignificant.
We can't estimate the amount here, because of many reasons.
For example, there are local Garmin distributors who want to be more attractive for customers, so they rise 3760's functionality to 3790's and sell it for 3760's price. This is only a small example, of course, you can easily imagine a lot more possibilities. I've been working for such distributors long before turboccc have had published 37xx patch and I'm sure I'm NOT the only Garmin patcher in the world Also we can't estimate percent of such distributors among people downloading RGN_Tool.
Nokia knew they could sell more Symbian phones if somehow hackable.
Same can be for Garmin too, even maps sharing at a push,can be an advantage to sell more units .
In this day a lot of peolpe cant afford to buy a new nuvi becouse they dont have extra money.
But if you have old nuvi and found on this forum that you can modified and get extra futures,this bring smile on face of a lot people.
These people appreciate the efforts of TurboCCC,Alexander2010,Kunix,Catymag,ddabcd277...... which they brighten their life in this difficult times.
When i help users here or in Slovenian forum the payment for my efforts is word THANKS,and that word means more to me then tones and tones of money.
Love your wife? Buy yourself a GPS for answering to her favorite question: "Dear, where are you?".
