Ok, I just saw the same problems on a friends computer. Took his GPSmap64 to my computer and everything works fine. Since he was unable to fullfill the first steps it might be a difference within the tools used.
I'm using imgTool 1.9.4 and gimgunlock.exe with a file date 17.07.2014. I was unable to see what file version it is.
It could also be a problem with the virus protection or the operating system. Try to disable the virus protection before changing the img-file. And I have Win7 as OS, maybe a newer OS could be the problem?
No further idea right now, sorry.

- With a empty sdcard make a folder 'GARMIN' and placed inside the unlocked image file for Europe.
- Boot your satnav and see if it reads.
If its still locked your unit may have the latest protection so follow post #29 by @OldMan0815 and run the img through gimgtools 0.03 and then set the codepade to 1252 using ImgTool 1.9x

Thank you.
Just to be sure, is that mean that my device will work with EU maps? Can I delete USA, Can, Mexico maps and will my device work then ?
I need that for Truck mode.

Thank you again.

dont delete the NA and mex maps. The unit reads maps in the internal card and SD card so if you have a 16/32gb SDcard you can put europe maps inside. I name my maps on the sdcard 'gmapsupp-{map_region}-{map_version}.img'

If you need to unlock any Garmin protected Device see this post...

http://rincon-it.tk/2016/03/16/unlock-protected-garmin-nuvi-device/

It was very helpful for me... after waste a lot of time UNLOCKING MAPS new garmin device still saying "CANT UNLOCK MAPS"... WTF!!!

Then , reading (wasting lot of time) I see that recentrly selled Garmin devices have a protected Firmware, that need no to be flashed to accept unlocked maps...

Tkanks at all!!

Great forum - have learned lots of things so far about my new nuvi 2689.

But can someone please explain how to "patch the firmware" in order to accept unlocked maps?
As the PGFT states the IMG is not locked, but the nuvi says it is.

What do I do with the "gupdate.gcd" file?
Also I can't seem to access the device properly with "garmin.express", as everything seems to be managed by this. Downloading new software is done by "express"

Thanks.
