  • New maps don't work, CANNOT UNLOCK MAPS. Please help !!!

    Hi there

    I have Garmin DriveSmart 50 LMT-D
    I have downloaded 2 different set of maps, (Garmin City Navigator Europa NTU 2017.30 - IMG Unlocked AND Garmin City Navigator Europa NTU 2017.30 gmap & Unlocked IMG/ Speedcams, 3D-Buildings and more
    What I have done

    1. Format SD card (Samsung 8GB class 8) Fat32
    2. Created a folder called Garmin
    3. Copied gmapsupp.img into the Folder (i have used card reader) Tried 2 different maps IMG (none of them works)

    When I start garmin I get a message: CANNOT UNLOCKED MAPS (maps are corrupt and cannot be used)

    What am I doing wrong, why it doesn't work? ( I have done this before on different sat nav, older maps and it worked)

    PLEASE HELP

    Thanks

    See the topic
    You may need to edit the firmware.

          Same problem with a Drivesmart 50. Maps work fine on an older model Garmin but show as 'locked' when the SD card is inserted into the Drivesmart. I would also like to know how to edit the firmware so that I can add maps.
