I need help installing the "Onroute fietskaart" map on a Garmin Dakota 20. I've downloaded the map. In the comment wich was included with the torrent they said that I had to create the following pad c:\Garminonroute and put all the files in there. Then I had to execute the .reg file and it should be ok, but Mapsource doesn,t recognize the map. In the comment they also told that the map was not locked.
Here's the complete comment:
Garmin OnRoute Fietskaart Nederland v1.55 (Mapsource version)
(Holland, the Netherlands)
Overview: This is the latest dutch Garmin GPS map made especially for bike
rides (a "fietskaart" in dutch). This map is fully routable compared to the
non routable dutch TOPO map.
Copy to c:Garminonroute and import Fietskaart.reg to the registry.
If you want to use different folder: edit Fietskaart.reg before importing!
Map Date: 13.02.2009
Not locked map!
What i tried sofar:
- I tried different versions of Mapsource, older and newer ones
- I tried the newer 5.2 unlock method, and replaced the gmapsupp.img file with the original one in case the map wasn't unlocked
I tried the method creating the .UNL files
- I tried the 1.2 and 1.3 unlock tool to create the unlock code, and paste it into the map wizzard, with no effect
- I added the waypoint manager to mapsource
What I still not understand is the following:
The downloaded files contain several .img files and some other files .dbx .mdx etcetera but in the forum's they are most of the time talking about the gmapsupp.img file. For example the 5,2 unlock method can only handle a single file, so i put the gmapsupp file in there to unlock but what do I need to do this with all the other img files (there are about 20 files starting with a number.img)???
There is not a executable file for instance.
On the Dakota there was allready a Topo map of the Benelux installed wich is working fine, but that's not the right map for me. I need a routable bycicle map, so this should be the perfect one for me. Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong???
I'm handy with computers and files but the Garmin navigation is new to me so maybe i'm forgetting something. I've read in the forum that the Dakota has difficult firmware with a high security for maps downloaded from the internet.
Maybe can someone help me who did the trick??
