    Default Is it possible to put New Zealand maps on a UK Garmin Nuvi 55 ??

    Hi there-

    I live in the UK but am on on holiday in New Zealand.

    I have a Garmin Nuvi 55 with UK maps and would like to use it to navigate in New Zealand. Whilst I have seen New Zealand maps available on this forum, I have no idea how to convert my device so that it runs New Zealand Maps instead of UK maps. Is this even possible ?

    If this can be done, is it a simple process ? Would someone be able to guide me through the process of doing this ? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi dear,
    your device doesn't recognize Unlocked Maps unless you flash a Patched Firmware.
    I've prepared for you ad SD Package

    After you have installed the patched firmware, simply do as follow:
    1) get an empty microSD (2, 4, 8 GB as you want)
    2) create the folder Garmin and put inside the Unlocked Map of Australia&NewZealand
    3) create the folder Grmin\JCV and put inside the relative JCV (Raster JCV)
    That's All!

    Dear Firefox-
    Thank you ever so much for your help. This is a surprise and truly appreciated.
    I will try to understand what to do (I'm not technically minded) and get back to you if I have any queries- such as what the unlocked maps and raster files actually look like !
    Thanks again,
    Colin.

    This worked !!! I canít thank you enough as I was becoming really stuck trying to navigate here in New Zealand as little mobile coverage. I canít quite believe I was able to follow the technical instructions but it worked! Thanks ever so much for your brilliant help, it has made my life so much easier. Really appreciated.
    Colin.

    All the best for your travels. If you find the Garmin map out of date or that it shows roads under construction as being open, try the free NZ Open maps, updated monthly:
