    "can't unlock maps" after crash

    Hi there!

    I was using my Garmin Oregon 450 with the US CitiNavigator 2010 for 4 months now without a problem. I loaded the unlocked image from a link I got in this forum.

    A few days ago, when routing to a destination using that map, the Oregon crashed. I had to take out the batteries to restart it. Afterwards, the Oregon shows the message "can´t unlock maps" when starting the device and the US citinav map isn´t displayed anymore. I copied the file from SD to internal memory and stuff like that to be sure the memory card is working, but that wasn´t the cause. All other maps still work fine, though. A firmware downgrade to 3.3 didn´t help either.

    Anyone any ideas what could be wrong?


    Kind regards,
    arwaperso

    Well, tried the 2011 unlocked image and that one works like a charm...weird, though.

    Can't Unlock Maps????

    Just got an Oregon 450, and picked up the US Topo 24k Northeast maps on DVD to load on to it. The catch is, after I transfer the map to the unit from my mac, the unit says "Can't Unlock Maps." Does anyone have any ideas? This is infuriating me, as basecamp says that the map is unlocked.


    **EDIT**

    Figured it out... after I'd posted of course. I had another map lumped in with the topo, and it's unlock code was messing with things...

    Foreign firmware

    Where I could find oregon 450 firmware in language other than English?
    I'm Indonesian, and I just bought Oregon 450 last Black Friday via online.
    They don't sell those in my country officially.
    The bottom line is I want to experiment a little...

    Yes it's possible. You must open rgn file (firmware) with a program and cange voice files. Ask to PouchX poland site (google) and they help to you

    GPSMAP 62S / OREGON 450 differences ?

    Good evening, noob post alert.

    I'm considering buying myself a GPS unit. Main uses will be plotting trails I've cycled on my mountainbike & mountain navigation. What are the differences between the two units in the title ? None of the stockists I've visited have first hand experience of either unit & resort to reading the spec from the boxes.

    Assistance much appreciated. TIA Dave.

    No difference! Only screen idea is various. Compare old fashion keyboard phone and new sencor screen gadget in use AND GO!

    Well there are a few differences, but they are very similar.

    The obvious difference is the interface, the Oregon being a touch screen and the 62s hard buttons.
    The 62 has a smaller screen and lower resolution. The 62 also lacks the ability to do Wherigo geocaches (if thats something you even care about).
    It is debatable, but the commonly held belief is that the quad-helix antenna of the 62 series should get better reception in heavily treed/low sightline areas than the ceramic patch antenna of the Oregon series.

    Oregon 450

    Sorry for opening a new topic, but I have an urgent question. My friend is returning from USA to Serbia tomorrow. So I have to tell him whether to buy Garmin Oregon 450, a hiking GPA device, or not. So my question is, can I upload car maps like City Navigator Europe to it, because, if I can't, this device will be useless to me, so he won't buy it? I suppose it can only support topo maps or something. Thanks in advance
