    Default Does Nuvi 205 [and other older Garmins] lose unlocked maps in software update?

    I have 10 years old Nuvi 205, which I haven't use for few year. Now I have started to use it again and thank to this forum, I also have newer maps.
    I noticed that my 205 has software version 5.60 and according to this site

    newer software exists, so if I update it to 7.80, do I lose ability to use unlocked maps on it? What about unlocked Garmin Cyclops, does it work after software update?

    non mi risulta che aggiornando il firmware si perda l'uso delle mappe sbloccate, io ti consiglio di aggiornare il tuo navigatore usando Garmin WebUpdater, pi adatto ad navigatore cos vetusto

    I do not see that updating the firmware is lost the use of the unlocked maps, I suggest you to update your browser using Garmin WebUpdater, more suitable for navigator so old

    I confirm what was said by fr52, no MSV protection in this old model.
    I also add that with the 7.60 firmware you will have the ability to manage 2 Maps on SD, Garmin folder (gmapsupp.img + gmapsup1.img)
