    nüvi 1440

    Hi, I am following this thread with great interest but seem to be banging my head into the wall!

    I have a Nuvi 1440 and am trying to install the newly downloaded, unlocked North America 2011.40 onto the 16Gb SD card. I have created an unlock file using the Jetmouse Keygen 1.5 and have put that file together with the gmapsupp.img on the SD card.

    Then I'm stuck. There must be a missing link where the system is telling the Nuvi that there is a map on the SD card. But what? And where and how to find it?

    Obviously I am not seeing the whole picture. And believe me, I have tried to follow the different threads a lot.

    You don't need any unlock codes or keygen. That's the whole point of downloading the unlocked IMG you got.

    I'm not sure if having the UNL file there is causing your problem. But it should be simple to fix.

    I suspect you put the gmapsupp.img in the wrong place. I'm not sure where the 1440 looks for the map file on SD. All of the older models look in a garmin folder on the card. Try moving it to /garmin/gmapsupp.img and see if it works. Some of the newer models may expect it to be in another directory.

    I thin the 1xxx series may look in a "map" folder on SD card for that IMG file but I've never played with that model.

    Re: problem installing maps

    Try the following:

    1) Ensure your map is actually an unlocked .img (if it is, then do not use any .unl file).
    2) Ensure your Jetmouse created unlock file is a .unl file and not a .txt file.
    3) Ensure the gmapsupp.img is placed in the folder labeled Garmin, in the route directory (SD:/Garmin)
    4) If you are still having troubles with the map, try the alternative unlocking methods listed in the Open Tools threads.
    5) Try an alternative map, or better still, search for an unlocked .IMG file.
    6) Always ensure your Micro-SD is formatted correctly...sometimes it helps by backing up your gmapsupp .img file, moving the one in the card and formating the card, then replacing the .img file in the Garmin folder.

    Re: problem installing maps

    Thank you so much guys! After formatting the SD card, I made the \Garmin-folder and copied the unlocked .img-file into it.

    It worked like a charm!

    Original Nuvi software will not run on other gps systems.
    In your case - choose a appropriate Garmin XT version thats is suitable for your device pending the resolution.
    You have not given much details of your new device.
    Further help is not advisable.
    Perhaps you find some info in Garmin Mobile XT section.

    Sorry, does anyone know where to download the img files? I know how to unlock it, I just can't find a place to get them. I'm trying to use my European Nuvi in the US.

    All the links and descriptions info are here.

    Download an "unlocked" img version and they will not require you to unlock them, they work anywhere.

    Curious queston: Are you just looking for a "small area" map of the US (perhaps for a holiday trip) or do you want the entire N/A mapset ?

    Angry Nuvi 1440 Text language issue

    Hello all.

    I have recently updated software of a Nüvi 1440 and after this the german text language disappeared.
    After copying the text language file from another device, result is a mix between german and english text languages.
    Tryed to reinstall software version, delete text languages to see if update copies new ones, unsuccesfull...

    Think the best would be to copy fresh original text and voices files, does anyone have it ?

    Regards,
    Purga
