HI
Connect your GPS device to your computer's USB port and click the 'Find Devices' button below. When your device is detected, enter the serial number found on your GPS device and the 8-digit product key found on the back of the disc's case. Then click the 'Unlock Map' button below.

Sir/madam,

Some of the mapsets require unlock codes that only work with 1 device. click this link. You need to have an unlock code from Garmin for your GPS to use the other maps on it. You'll need to contact Garmin to get an unlock code.

The mapset file that is created on the SD card from Mapsource is coded specifically to only work on the serial number of the device it was unlocked for.

contact manufacturer.

thanks
good luck

Hi,
If your Nüvi or StreetPilot C5xx series keep displaying the maps are locked, you will need to erase a file from the units memory. Connect your GPS system to your computer; go to start then ‘My Computer’, and double click on your device file (mass storage system), there you will see a folder named ‘Garmin’.
In this folder are several different files, look for file named gmapsupp.img. Right hand click on this file and delete as this file is causing the maps to lock.


Thanks

Did you select map areas in Map source and load them through the program?

Hi,

All GPS that supports NT maps, do also work with non-NT. Not the other way around.

To see that it works you can activate both GPS and Mapsouce in demo modes.
Go in to MapSource and select:
Utileties -> Unlock Maps -> Next -> Yes I have 25-carachter key -> Next -> Next ->
In the field "Enter 25-character code" type inn "DEMO" -> Next -> Close.

This sets MapSource in Demo and unlocks all maps you have installed.
Then send the map to the GPS that you like to look at.

This will set the GPS into Demo modus. (Works only in emulated nodus)

To get out of demo modus, remove the "DEMO" key from Unlock wizard and
transfere any map you like to the GPS, or deltete the \garmin\gmapsupp.img file.

Have you tried this?

You can try this step that I found. If you tried loading other mapas try this.

You will need to erase a file from the units memory. Connect your GPS system to your computer; go to start then ‘My Computer’, and double click on your device file (mass storage system), there you will see a folder named ‘Garmin’.
In this folder are several different files, look for file named gmapsupp.img. Right hand click on this file and delete as this file is causing the maps to lock.

SOURCE: Is there any free map updates for the garmin nuvi?

Asmany as there are FREE dinners Updates are not free, unless you paid full price for it when you bought it. Free upgrades are a deceptive myth. If you get a free uograde its usually minor and was included in the price of the pack.

SOURCE: looking for Map upgrades for Garmin Nuvi GPS

I've looked for free map upgrades for my Garmin and could not find anything. I did find a lifetime map upgrade deal for around $75. It allows you unlimited upgrades for as long as you own the GPS. Go to the garmin site and search NUMaps.

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.
