    GPSMAP 541/545

    Hi all,

    I have VUS016R unlocked map which works on my Nuvi 550 but when I insert the chip into my Garmin 541 it came up with the 2010 Michigan area Chip information but on the top screen it just stated user data. That's all.

    Not sure why it works on a Nuvi 550 but not my Garmin 541 Chartplotter?

    Any idea's are greatly appreciated!!

    Re: Unlocked VUS016R Lake Michigan not working properlly on GPS Garmin 541? Please he

    Do you have the VUS016R locked map to try? If so, and you have a way to get the ID number of a SD card (like with a nuvi), use the keygen to make a UNL file so you can unlock the map the correct way (the way it was designed by Garmin to be unlocked... with a UNL file).

    I don't recommend using any of the "Fast", "Alternative" and/or easy-way of unlocking Bluechart g2/g2 Vision maps.
    All of these methods involve rebuilding the whole IMG file to unlock it.
    In doing so, this can cause problems, especially when the map is used with a chartplotter.

    It would be much appreciated if you could PLEASE share the map (the locked one if you have it, or either unlocked).
    I'm going to Ludington, MI for Labor Day weekend and it would sure help put some Salmon in the boat.

    Nice list of what you have.
    Well... I started to help you... but you forgot to address my request???
    As Tom Cruise said to Cuba Gooding Jr. in the movie "Jerry Maguire"...
    "Help me... help you".
    I can then help further to resolve your problem...

    I hear your request and will give you any one map of your choice. I understand what you are saying about using jetmouse to make a unlock key after you get the serial number of the SD card. I was just simply asking you the question about the new Garmin Security measures which I hear doing it the jet mouse way the mapset willn't work on some newer chartplotters. Unlocking the map gets around this new security method apparantly. Was just wondering if you know anything about that or not?

    p.s. Which map would you like?

    That depends on what versions of locked maps you have of the below:
    VUS016R - Lake Michigan (newer that 10.50)
    VUS017R - Lake Huron - Lake St. Clair (newer that 9.00)
    VUS036R - U.S. Inland Rivers (what version do you have?)

    First try doing it as I described and see what results you get.
    What Garmin software/firmware version are you using with the 541?
