Tried that as I also have a map of Europe loaded. The map of Europe displays OK but not the Middle East Map.
Tried that - still no display of the map overlay.
ps closed the on line window by mistake...do you want to try again?
Did a full power down and restart after deselecting the Europe Map. Still no joy.
I did a clean out of old maps in the .system folder a few days ago and am wondering if I have deleted a system file I should not have. But the Europe map displays OK so I am struggling to understand why I have the problem with the Middle East map.
Before I do that I have been comparing the .Map file structures between the device hard drive and the sd card. There seems to be 3 files associated with the map GMA, DISC IMAGE FILE and UNL but it is not the same between the two maps. I would like to send you a printout of the drives - the insert feature does not support word files. What does each file type do and is this the root of my problem - there is an old GMA file which I do not believe is associated with any loaded map.
Am reloading the files. On looking on the internet I spotted I am supposed to have a gmapprom.img file in the drive....I may have deleted this. It says it is only used once but has to be present. Could this be the problem?
Yes. Have downloaded the map to both the hard drive and the SD Card. Still no map overlay. I noted that when using the Garmin Account it does not recognise that the download of the map has happened?
Have cleaned out both sets of maps and will reload from scratch and see if that makes a difference.
Have not got this file in either location.
okay, install this on your computer>
Download the MapInstall update file into a directory on your hard drive. (i.e., c:\garmin). Change to the directory in which you downloaded the files, (i.e., c:\garmin), and run the executable file (.exe). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the MapInstall installation.
Already have this software and tried it - no joy.
If this last clear out and reload does not work I will call it a day with this device and buy a new one...it will be cheaper in the long run.
Thanks for all you help and advice.
