what happens if i combine msm and mfm into one .img
will LA/JCV work accordingly?

Yes, if you enable MSM NT mapset at Map Info and provided that appropriate JCV file is available in \JCV folder.

If the map is installed in data card, you can just simply remove the card and reinstall the map, but if it's installed in Nuvi's memory, then it's going to be a bit difficult. First, you can try to install a working map (GMAPSUPP.IMG) in \Garmin folder of a data card and insert it into Nuvi, and try connecting to PC. If it is able to connect as USB mass storage device, remove all IMG files within \Garmin folder of Nuvi's main drive.

However, if the above is not able to get Nuvi detected, the other method is to flash Nuvi with a cure RGN firmware specifically for disabling Nuvi from reading IMG files while booting up. This method will allow Nuvi to boot up, albeit lacking the ability to read IMG map files. Once it's able to connect in USB mass storage mode, remove all IMG files within \Garmin folder of Nuvi's main drive. Finally, Nuvi should be flashed with a normal RGN to restore it's firmware. Depending on Nuvi model/localization, the appropriate RGN can be obtained from the internet, or you can create it yourself.


Problem solved. I used an SD card with a working map to boot up normally and then deleted the GMAPSUPP.IMG in Nuvi.

Thanks for the help dvpro.
