    nüvi 3760T

    I have a copy of the gmapdem.img which was copied from a 3790T. Now I'd like to use that DEM info on my 3760T. Apparently just copying it to the .system directory doesn't work. The map is showing up in the settings->my maps page, but when I look on the map, it doesn't show any more details terrain information compared to when I'm not using de DEM img file.
    Is the 3760T not capable of displaying the dem info the way the 3790T does?

    This happens when you have a different firmware version.
    You have to upgrade to the same 3790T firmware to use.

    You mean that my firmware is not compatible with the gmapdem.img file, because it was extracted form a 3790 with a different (older) firmware?
    I got the img via this thread.
    This was posted a view days before 2.50 was released.
    My 3760 has the following firmware versions:
    Software version: 2.50
    GPS-firmware: 2.20
    TSC version: 1.16


    So I have the latest an greatest I presume and need to request an gmapdem.img from a 3790T European with the same firmware versions?

    So you are having European software and wants to use American software together.
    It is just like 2 persons with the same names, living in different countries and different addresses.
    Or
    Similarly 2 persons with same names living under the same roof.
    When called 2 will answer - which is the correct one.

    Better describe as changing the gearboxes of 2 similar brand cars but different models.
    The smart guy who thought of it and succeeded in doing so - must be a real pro mechanic.

    I don't have to own 5 satnav for different usages in different regions if everything is that simple.

    What's so strange about my question?

    I have an European 3670 and an European DEM map from an European 3790. The only difference here is the model number. That is also the base of my question. Is the 3760 capable of displaying the DEM map taken from a higher end 3790 and if so how. The 3760 does recognize the map, but won't display it.

    Its just a guess, but when the 3760 can even not display 3D Buildings, then its possible that also the DEM shadings are not displayed.

    The DEM map does not work on my 3760T. (software 2.50)

    BUT I found a way to project any europian map in 3D !!!

    I downloaded the 3D "Recreational Map Of Europe for Mapsource",
    installed it on my pc,
    and sent the countries I wanted to my 3760.
    (The whole map is rather big ~3 Gb and the 3760 has small internal memory)
    Now I check both the 3D Receational Map AND the CNEUNT 2010.20 (or any other europian map I want)
    and the other map is always projected over the 3D map and I can see the road map I want as 3D !!!

    "CNEUNT 2010.20" on top of "Recreational Map Of Europe"

    Learn something new.
    But the details still lack some contour depths.
    Anyway it was a nice and good.
    Worth your efforts.
