What is the Garmin 510 that can't unlock maps stating exactly? And to Nici07 who said, "Need to unlock device", are you referring to a PIN lock or locked maps?

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: How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx

You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

Tip

Buying used Garmin GPS (such as iQue 3600)


Be careful buying a used Garmin GPS from eBay or any other private seller. If it does not have the maps loaded already, it could be difficult to get the maps unlocked so another owner can use them. Buying a unit that has never been registered with Garmin is preferred, but not likely. Very often the impression is given that you can just download the maps from Garmin. Not so fast! You need the ownership of the unit transferred to you which can only be done by the previous owner. After they have your money, it might be difficult to get them to do anything. Also you need the unlock codes for the map software. Having the Garmin map DVD will not get you anywhere without the codes. You can always BUY the maps/codes, but these are not cheap at $80-$100. Contacting Garmin about a non-working GPS you bought from an auction will get you nowhere. If you are the official registered owner, they become friendly!

My GPS keeps saying cant unlock maps after i already loaded maps on it


The Garmin Maps require a map unlock code in order for the GPS to be able to open/access it. Since the maps are copyright protected by Garmin you should of recieved the unlock code from Garmin when you purchased the new map update.

I've updated my map for garmin nuvi 310 through malfreemaps but it did not work well. The map did not display as detail as they preview. I also lost the guidance voice. And my car picture keep off the most...


It sounds like you may have wiped out the Garmin internal maps with the malfreemaps and they aren't compatible with your unit. You'll have to send it in to Garmin to have them reload the units software and maps.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.
