Hello, I have Garmin 3590LMT which use to read map OK on SD card. Worked fine 20 days ago and did a firmware update. Now it is on 8.10...

I also got a new Garmin DriveLux 50 which I thought I can read the SD card and does not as well. The firmware on that one is 4.10. Can anyone guide me what I need to do to restore or enable them to read my USA and EU gmapprom.img again?

Happy to respond via PM. Thank you.

Hello - I am trying to patch a Garmin 2699. I have a couple of questions

1) Where do I download the rgntool and updater.exe files. I dont see the links for that in the post

2) Where do I get the gupdate.gcd file for using with the patcher. Do I use the file that is lying in the system directory. I know I have to delete it from there - so do I delete it from there but first copy it into the patcher directory for using. Or do I need to download this file from somewhere else?

Thanks

I will try to answer in the same order
1.You can find those tools very easy on Internet
2.Yes you copy your file from your system directory and then deleted! If you download a firmware from Internet you have to be sure that has the same HWID of your device.

Yes ! It is mentioned in the post already the procedure is the same! All you need is to copy the file GUPDATE.GCD from your device on the patch software the you delete the previous file and put in her place the new patched one!
BECAREFULL to use you own file from your system if you download a new firmware from Internet check that the HWID is the same.
If you face any problem contact me on PM

After the fixing of this device above i would like to inform that some devices smart drive and de luxe 40/50 cannot be patched correct with this method but only by SD card.
I will not explain more but only in PM because i have noticed that other sites that was giving links for this solution faced problems so if anybody has same problem and device to contact me by PM to see if we could help him.

Hi,
I have a 2689lmt with USA maps and I want install Europe maps in a sd card.
If I patch the firmware, can I will update the USA maps by GarminExpress in the future?
Sorry, but I am scared to lost the USA updates.
Thank you

In order to be absolutely sure you may keep the original firmware by copied it somewhere and reinstall it at any time later on again on your device. Also at any moment if you do re-update of a new firmware with Garmin Express again it will be locked.
But as much that i know this patching does not affect to the re-update of a Life Map this should be related with the device number somehow i suppose.
