    Second issue :
    When I choose my set of maps, want to save on sd card, waiting around 20mins and get an error.
    what`s wrong ?

    Solved : just make .img to HDD

      Maybe is a error with SD card, my opinion is to send the new created map in C: you will find the gmapsupp.img file in mapsource files folder, this way it will create the map faster, then you can copy the map in Garmin folder in SD

        Kor@l info is correct.
        It will work every time.
        Can you see the Map in "Map Product Manager" ?
        If you see it there it can be unlocked.

        I have versions 2011.2,2011.3,2011.4 and 2012.1 installed and I can see all of them.
        I even moved all my maps to a second drive to free up C: drive
        Then so I can use the maps again I went into regedit and changed the drive letter of each map.
        Turned on Mapsource and look at "Map Product Manager" again, and saw the the drive remapping was there.
        All my maps work from Drive E: now with no problems at all.

          I am having a problem of Mapsource locking up (on two other computers) after installing CNNANT 2012.10.

          I have a NuMap Lifetime update for my Nuvi. It took the update with no problems. I told it to install on both my computer and my Nuvi. After the installation was complete and working, I replaced Mapsource.exe with patched version 6.15.11 Mapsource.exe. Everything works fine, and was able to unlock & install on my 60CSx.

          Problems started when I tried to replace 2011.4 with 2012.10 on my laptop and other tower computer. 2011.4 was already working perfectly on both other computers. All computers are running Windows XP Pro edition. I copied all of the files from the 2012.1 installation (gmap folder, etc.) to a dvd.

          On both other computers, I ran the .msi file from the dvd, and it said that 2012.10 was installed successfully. I replaced Mapsource.exe with the same patched version 6.15.11. I also copied the gma and unl files to the new computers. When I start Mapsource, it comes up fine, and CNNA 2012.1 is fully available, unlocked and ready. I can zoom in or out, move all over the maps with no problems. I can load a waypoint file and see all of the waypoints on the 2012 map ok.

          Everything is fine until I try to select ANY map segment. Mapsource instantly opens an error box saying, "There is a problem with this Garmin application." It wants me to click on a button to copy to the clipboard, and send to Garmin. I cannot click on anything. Mouse still works, and the only way to get out is to use Windows Task Manager and End Task. This happened on both other computers, but the exact same version of Mapsource is still working perfectly on the computer which took the origional download from Garmin. On both other computers, I tried going back to the Mapsource that was installed with the 2012 update, but I get the same error.

          Has anyone else tried to install 2012.1 on another computer and run into this problem? Perhaps a registry entry was made on the computer during the Garmin download that is not being included in the install on another computer? Perhaps I should try downloading the 2012.1 update to the new computer, installing only on the computer?

          Any thoughts?

          Thanks,

          Harold
          I get the same erroneous message as Harold does: "There is a problem with this Garmin application." I was trying 2011.40, I unlocked it just fine but cannot send it to any partition nor to the SD. I see the MapInstall.exe from the same folder as MapSource is not cracked and it says the map is locked (unauthenticated). Could this be a reason?
          Please assist me coz I need the GPS in 3 days and right now nothing is working...

            Re: How to install and create a map with Original Mapsource Locked

            I succedeed by selecting less locations/countries. I guess it's related to the available RAM size, as the HDD partition has plenty of space (>500Gb).
            Note: It was not a particular map that caused the error. I also installed the hacked MapInstall.exe.

            Another question:
            My Garmin nuvi 200w is loading the boot logo, then the Loading maps and stucks at the "Loading POIs". If I remove the SD where the new gmapsupp.img is located, everything works fine. I tried by removing the POI folder completely, but it still says "Loading POIs".
            Did anyone encounter this strange behavior? And what would be the cause/solution?
            Thank you in advance.

                  Re: How to install and create a map with Original Mapsource Locked

                  Thx for great explanation. I am stuck at step 1:
                  Where can I find the „Update MSI file“ to install new map in Mapsource?
                  It looks like it should be on the original installation DVD. But ist not on mine. On my DVD there are a the usual folders such as „City Navigator Europe NT 2011.10.gmap“ and others and a number of .msi file such as CNEUNT2011.10_SKY.msi and others. But nothing with „update“.

                  I guess I can skip this step 1 anyway, but am a bit scared to kill my brand new Garmin device.

                    Re: How to install and create a map with Original Mapsource Locked

                    You can skip step 1 this way, copy "City Navigator Europe NT 2011.10.gmap" folder in
                    Copy GMAP folder in
                    (in XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GARMIN\Maps)
                    (in Vista, Windows 7 - C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Maps)
                    Run Mapsource and you will find the map locked. Go ahead with unlock.

                    PS
                    I think you can run CNEUNT2011.10_SKY.msi and will have same result of step 1

                      hi, Kor@l

                      ive unlocked map succesfuly, i wanted to push it directly to the internal memory of my nuvi 1390, but it says there is only 800 mb free space. i searched for map file, gmapporm.img enabled search for hodden files and no success. is it possible to use the internal memory or it has to be on sd card. thanks

                        The folder with pre-installed files is hidden, go in Folder Options and select show hidden files and folders and uncheck "Hide Protected operating systems files" this way you will find the .System folder with all map files and other files and folders.

                            No is enough this one, you are using original or unlocked Mapsource?

                                I think you have not understand what i asked.....anyway dont send your map in device but in your HDD probably in C:\Garmin folder, it will be named gmapsupp.img, use this tool to remove GMA protection and have a full unlock after copy the map in your device(your device have GMA protection)
