    try to use Garmin UnLocker Alternative - Latest Update or Fast IMG Unlocker or JetMouse Garmin Keygen v1.5 with Checksum Fix in Garmin Open Tools & Tweaks to unlock your map

    I recently bought a Nuvi 500, and I received a free map upgrade for City Navigator North America NT 2012.20. I decided not to keep the Nuvi 500 and bought an Oregon 450 instead. Can I unlock this map to use on my Oregon? I do not have Mapsource, only Basecamp and MapInstall.

    1. Locate the file gmapprom.img in your 500 (there are your latest pre-installed maps) and copy the file someplace to your PC

    2. Download the tool "Fast IMG Ulocker.exe" (available in this forum). I think the latest is Version 2.1 Some virus checkers complain about this tool but it is a false positive. The tool is NOT a virus threat.

    3. Run the "Fast IMG Unlocker" tool on the gmapprom.img file on your PC. It might take a minute or so but the gmapprom.img will be modified and become unlockable. The file is now useable anywhere, without any keys.

    I'm not sure what the Oregon needs for map names or location where it is stored but If you use it on an SD card for the Oregon, just rename the modified gmapprom.img to gmapsupp.img and copy it to the garmin folder on SD like this.

    x:\garmin\gmapsupp.img <--- path on SD ot u-SD. your done.

    Correct me if I am wrong but as I understand it I need the SD ID to instal a map on my SD card in my Dakota 20. How do I find this number.

    First here is a thread with some discussion about your model, some of it might help.
    Dakota 20

    I read somewhere in the above thread something that said if you use an "unklocked" IMG you will not need a .UNL file for that model GPS. Therefore you shouldn't need any SD ID (that's the SD Serial number).
