How to Update MFM Maps into 2016 Honda Civic Garmin

Postby medowance » Mon Jul 11, 2016 5:58 pm

Dear all,

I have a pre-install garmin in my ride.

It stated if to updated my map; i need to plug my 16GB usb drive to the HU 1st to request for map update.

Then unplug and plug into PC using Garmin Express to download the map.

Once map download complete; I need plug back to my car to update the map.

So instead of using the free map from Honda; how can I update MFM map in my ride?

Thanks.

If it's a Garmin, MfM map should work. You have to figure out how to load our CGPSmapper map. Most Garmin system read the map from a SD card. If you can find it then take a look inside to see if there are any Garmin map files inside. Garmin maps are traditionally labelled as Gmapsupp.img, Gmapprom.img, Gmapbmap.img, Gmaptz.img...etc. and is in X:\Garmin\.system (note that .system folder is a hidden folder. You need to enable your Explorer to view hidden files to see it.

Hope this helps.... cheers!

Thank for the infomation.

Another quick question.... How do I access the download map section? It stated restricted.
I remember it can be downloadable previously at public download.

Thanks
