i tried to do so, but it caused the phone 'hang'...

after all the procedure being done, when i run the GMXT on the phone, it asked to connect to a GPS ..what does it mean?..when it failed to connect, it prompted whether i want to try again or no...when choosed NO, the phone 'hang', cannot click any where else...

If GMXT asks whether to connect to Garmin GPS, it means that your copy is not the full version. So you need to either purchase the software or find an alternative method. As this forum does not allow discussions regarding the "alternative" method, so please google to learn more.

thanx dvpro... is it possible because of the sw.unl file is 'corrupted'? because she gave me the 'unlock code', dunno whether it is from 'alternative method' or legal method...

Maybe, why don't you go back to the seller and ask her to resolve this problem?

For now, let's just focus on getting GMAPSUPP.IMG (MFM-Garmin detailed map including routable roads and POIs) installed in your GMXT. The installer is available here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=8442 And the installation's instruction can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=662 FYI, the first part of the installation will install the mapset for use with Mapsource, BaseCamp, etc. and the second part will generate GMAPSUPP.IMG which is the ready-to-use detailed map for Garmin devices. BTW, you don't need Mapsource/Basecamp to complete the installation. All you need is the generated GMAPSUPP.IMG, and this file should be placed in \Garmin folder of GMXT data card.

The GDB that you find here is not meant for use in device. They are used by mappers to update the map. If you want GPI Custom POI files, here's the installer: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3040
