    bulb How to know which files my Garmin device supports and which files I need to update.

    How to know which files my Garmin device supports, which files I need to update and where to put them.



    At every new release of an Asian map (and others), we have a bunch of posts like: "Which files for my nuvi xxx?
    As we repeated the following many times and sometimes we don't have your devices and we don't have a crystal ball, here it is how to know it immediately without asking on forum.

    Attach your GPS usb.
    Open Garmin folder.
    Locate garmindevice.xml and open it with any internet browser.

    As you can see, the .xml file contains all the names, extensions, internal memory paths, sd paths etc. of every supported files in your devices.
    Pressing Ctrl + F keys on the keyboard brings up a search box and you can then look for 'JCV', for example.
    Here a screen of a part of a garmindevice.xml:

    2v113es

    Additionally, looking at your device's currently loaded files can also help to quickly identify which new files are required to match an updated map version and verify the proper placement. Continuing with JCV for example, look for both the present location and similar naming of an existing file, [eg: D1234x0A.jcv where x is a changed digit], and the resolution of a file from a previous update to match with that currently available.

    You have to navigate to get to the good.

    So the naming of the file has to be same as what's in .xml or Garmin won't use it?

    Certainly the extension name must conform, which is what i think you are asking, but not necessarily the file name itself depending on the type of file and in some cases the unit in which they're used.
