    Re: Kenwood DNX5140 Garmin maps how to

    i have another model of kenwood,dnx-7200,and have several maps in one "gmapsupp.img" file!HOW???? I put it over Map source program,just sign maps you want too use and send to device,check REMOVABLE "X" (leter for kenwood) and wait to transfer to device,but maps must be unlocked before in mapsource,with all.bat,or unlock wizard and keygen!

      I've got a DNX7140 that I'm trying to update via the rear mini-USB. I have most current Garmin drivers installed on my laptop. When I connect the HU to my Laptop, I choose mass storage mode on the HU, and my laptop comes up with 2 removeable drives - F and G. When I try to open G, it says there is no disk in the device. When I try to open F, it hangs for a while and then says that either there is no disk in the device or that I need to format the disk in order to use it. Can somebody please help me?

      Thanks!

        hi. i have a problem with kenwood dnx 5240bt. I put new maps on it. maps are unlocked and everything seemed fine. but now it has search problems. you can't find anything when you go to search and search for adress. if you search on the map(view map an then search on the map) then you can see names of places and you can navigate to them. does anyone know where is the problem
        thanks!

          I would just like to say THANKS, the tip worked fine here on my DNX5240BT, using Garmin Unlocked City Navigator 2012.10, no search problems, it all works fine (apart from the fact the some speedlimit indications are off by 10 km/h, but hey, I still am supposed to drive the car right? And looking for speed limit signs is a part of it I guess..)
          So once again, thanks a million

            Try to rename the new map like gmapprom1.img .
            Maybe works together original gampprom.img .
            It worked for me.
            Good luck.

                        First be sure that cable works, if cable is too thin ( most used for small USB /SD converters not works for big devices , I mean devices that need more power)
                        Second when plug Usb cable press "NAV" button and it change status to "Mass sotorage Device"

                            HI, be sure that in your system have base map called "gmapbmap", without it, is not possible to generate a route, there is a base map for America other for Europe and other for Asia , for America you can download here http://www8.garmin.com/software/Garm...emap_4xxxx.exe, is free and garmin offers this download as update, this is a solution for this problem but do you have unl file key for your map don`t you? or be sure that your map is open
