Need your expert advise and guidance for updating the Map and the garmin software on the Kenwood DNX 5330BT HU.
01. How to update the Garmin navigation software on the Head Unit? I am currently running a pretty old version from 2013.
02. How to update the maps on the SD card? and Ensure that my Junction view can work?
a. Currently on the SD card there is a Garmin folder and inside I have have GMAPSUPP.img file which is also 2013.20 (malaysia/singapore map) and nothing else.
DNX5330BT was a used set bought from my friend and he mentioned that the map on the SD card is from garmin but unlocked ones.
One more Question, Lets say if I purchase City Navigator® Southeast Asia NT Part Number: 010-D0974-00, will my above 2 questions will be addressed?
Thanks in advance for your guidance to update my kenwood dnx5330bt with latest version of software and map.

The update will take quite a while, so you need to keep your engine running until the update completes.
2) For map updating, you will just need to follow the exact folder placement as what you currently have on your external micro sd card.
You will see a "Garmin" folder when you first view the micro sd card.
Inside the "Garmin" folder is where you need to place your map's gmapsupp.img file.
Your junction view file goes directly into the JCV folder.
*Note: Do note that not all map IMG are named as GMAPSUPP.IMG.
Some are named GMAPPROM.IMG and etc.

First of all thanks for your help I was struggling for almost 9 months without a solution. Now its fixed and I am very happy for that.
Updating the software was fairly easy as you said but one thing to take note
You have to make sure that your thumb drive is FAT32 formatted. Else issues with reading the firmware file. (I used NTFS first didn't work but FAT32 did the trick)
Updating the MAP was exactly as you mentioned above, but I had to change the file name from GMAPPROM.IMG to GMAPSUPP.IMG (remember to unlocked it twice).
Just another question, and probably its off topic. Did you change the splash screen image of your kenwood DNX5330BT?
Oops forgot to mention, A big thanks to Kenta2 as well for having the latest map available for the community.
Good Job Kenta2, keep up the good work
