I have a Nuvi 1450 purchased in Canada with the standard North American countries installed. Before I knew about OSM, I purchased a map of Ecuador, where I reside. I loaded the gmapsupp.img file into the MAP (not GARMIN) folder. Everything works.
I downloaded the zip files, unzipped them which created a gmapsupp.img file. This I placed in the MAP folder, but the countries Bolivia and Peru do not appear in the Nuvi. I tried putting the the gmapsupp.img in the GARMIN folder, but that did not work. I tried deleting the ecuador gmapsupp.img file, but that did not work.
Can anyone confirm that these Bolivia Peru gmapsupp.img file works? If they don’t are there any other maps of Bolivia and Peru? What other mistake could I be making if the files are bone-fide? I remember when I installed the Ecuador gmapsupp.img that I had to look at hidden files, but that might have been only to clear out unwanted files.
Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this far. I hope you can help.
Thanks to all. I got it working. The maps I had downloaded from the links I provided above were bad. The Lambertus map seems to be great. I could select just what I wanted and it fits on my unit.
I do have a very small card reader. It was so small I missed it. I presume this is so i can load more maps without the need to delete anything. I will look for a card, but it will probably be expensive here in Ecuador.
