I had the same with the 1015 maps and the 1020's also.

Have a read of the thread in the link below, on page 2 you will see that biggerdave gave a link to A_F_Activate, that worked for me.

Ok, we always like to know what navcore you have & which map you are trying to activate so we can help you...but you haven't told us that so it's guesswork for us

There are only two UK & ROI 1020 maps that have meta codes and can be activated:

United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland 1020_9244
United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland 1020_9272

1. Download the latest FastActivate:
ftp://FastactivateDownloadOnly2017:Fast ... tivate.rar
2. Extract the archive to the root of your device
3. Run FastActivate and select option 1 to generate a file called 'Updated_meta.txt'
4. Locate 'Updated_meta.txt' in the root and rename it to META.txt
5. Select option 2 to activate the map

What's the result?

You're welcome...glad you got it sorted out

The link was to the normal FastActivate page below:

topic19452.html

In future, just download the latest one instead of relying on old versions
