    If you have your GPS with a ".System" directory you can also copy that with Windows Explorer and choose your destination.

    I now can create te folder but the Nuvi still load any maps..
    Should the .System be place into the root or Garmin folder?

    Changed the file name from gmapsupp.img to gmapprom.img and now it works....

    I use a dirty trick:
    I create a folder named System, I change its properties to hidden, I rar it, then I open it in Winrar and in Winrar I rename it .System
    After that I extract it.
    I know It's not elegant but it works

    You have to navigate to get to the good.

    Obviously in the root as it's clearly written as similar to "[Drive letter]:\.System".
