Been awhile since Iíve updated the map on the 730. Currently have nc 9.004 & was using map North America 835.2419 on a SD card. Downloaded map NA 850.2782 & put the map folder on the card after deleting the 835 map folder. Did the map & meta patch with EasyUseTools2. System has already been patched. Put the card in & itís still showing the 835 map. Reformatted the card & put the back up files on it, deleting the 835 map folder & replaced it with 850 map folder. Put the card back in & itís still showing the 835 map. The map that is on the unitís hard drive is the 835 map. Can someone help me out getting the 850 map operating correctly on the SD card?
yuriyggg, Thanks alot!! Working like it should!!
Deleted the "CurrentMap.Dat" file from the SD card & choose the "top" North America map when asked.
You said to remove the CurrentMap from the CD. Where you referring to the SD card or the files on the unit itself?
You also said to choose map 850. The choices I had for selecting a map was North America & North American. There were no map numbers. I choose the top one. Had I choose the bottom one, what would have happened?
Will the CurrentMap.Dat file be written again to the files on the SD card? Asking this question for future map upgrades.
1 - file is not removed from the internal memory -only a card 2 Select the first map and check the screen, which chose
Then select the second map
3-carrentmap formed when choosing maps
If it is not, then there will be updates mapshare In this case, copy the file from internal memory to SD card
I don't understand everything your saying in line 2. I chose the first map. Don't understand "and check the screen, which chose Then select the second map". My internal memory has a different Nav & map from the SD card.
What Yuriyggg is trying to say is:
When you have the SD Card in, you can choose which map to use. Go to the map selection screen and selct the bottom one. You can then check the map version on the info screen and it should confirm that you are now using 850 version.
Remember however, If you take the SD card out it will Auto switch back to 835. The next time you put the SD card in you will need to reselect the 850 map.
Or...to make things easier you can also open the map folder and find the maps .pna file and rename it to whatever you want so that when you go to your map selection screen that's what you see! (this wont change what appears on the device status screen..to do that you need to change the name of the map folder to whatever you want..)
yuriyggg, thanks again for your help.
02xdaaus, thanks, your explanation makes it more clear as to what happens when the SD card is removed / unit powered on & off / SD card re-inserted & unit powered on. The 850 map is actually on top & the 832 is on bottom when I need to do an on screen map selection.
02xdaaus, thanks, this is a great way to tell the difference between the 2 maps. I renamed the .pna file on the SD card & it did not show the change on the on screen map selection. Still shows North America / North America. I renamed the map folder on the SD card & it did not show the change on the on screen map selection. It too shows North America / North America.
OK, got it now. Changed the pna in note pad & it worked!! Now have the 730 working with the latest map & a better understanding on how it's done. Made a step by step word doc on how I got the latest map up & running so the next time I shouldn't have any problems.
