General Discussion / cant get any maps here 2 work
August 22, 2014, 08:02:46 PM
Hi I have a Dakota 20 and a nuvi 50 LM

I have downloaded a bunch of maps here and have base camp, gamin express, map install and map source all installed but cant get even 1 map to down load into my garmin or work in any at all.
in the nuvi 50 it has a .gma , .img , .unl , .gsd files and will only use the lower 48 states update from garmin.
I copied and pasted the .img , . gma and ID files from the dakota since I purchased the 100 K topo from garmin and i get the error [ can not unlock map ]
I also installed the Gameandfishnetwork from this site into my pc and in it is the newenglandtopo containing a ton of img files and 1  TDB file and nope wont read them either.
Can not get  base camp, gamin express, map install and map source to open the maps from here at all to be installed.

so presently I am at a loss as to how to make any of them work.
