Time to end

NaviTotal was created back in October 2009 to help people with advice and solutions for their GPS devices. Since that time we quickly became a leading website with the domain name being known everywhere and being broadly respected in the community. Now in 2022 things have changed a lot, in particular with mobile phones, Android operating systems and Google. More and more people are using their phones to navigate using Google Maps which is making dedicated GPS devices redundant.

With this in mind, together with the mounting costs of running a website like NaviTotal, we have made the sad decision to close the site for good at the end of the month (October 2022). It is with heavy hearts that we announce this as we have helped many people over the last 13 years and made some very good friends along the way.

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to make this project the success it has become. In particular, we thank all of the Staff and Uploaders both past and present for giving up their free time, the VIP members for their contributions that helped with the running costs and all of the members who joined to learn and help others get the most from their GPS devices.

So, if you are interested to become the new owner and continue the adventure, please contact us shortly.

We wish you all the very best for the future

You can use Cure3 with original Firmware to get your device to be recognised by your PC, but you will need to find out the correct HWID for this device first.
If you made a device back up , it is in the garmindevice.xml.
If not look in C:\ProgramData\Garmin\CoreService\Downloads\Firmware
for Firmware_Firmware.006-B1948-00.8.80 or Firmware_Firmware.006-B1772-00.8.80

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately I don't have a backup and I don't have garmindevice.xml. The only thing I have now managed to connect the device to the PC and release the flash memory. Navigation only lights up with the garmin logo. I have file BUK _154.bin but I can't use it.
