I think I already know the answer to this question, but does Garmin provide any kind of changelog for updates anywhere?
for map updates, Something like "___ amount of roads added", "corrected ___ amount of spelling errors", etc.

Another question is which SID files to use in nuvi 35x7 ?
Currently I see 2 sets one for 37xx and one for 2595 ...
OK. Thanks. It looks like the 2595 folder.

It looks like I have a problem with the so called "Unlocked Mapsource / gmap folder".
Fisrt MapSource 6.16.3 doesn't see it when placed in the ProgramData\GARMIN\Maps folder along other recognized maps ... Although it has no problem seeing CN North America NT 2012.10 and many other like CN Europe NTU 2021.10 and CN South America NT 2021.10.
Second when I try to run either UnLock MapSource 5.2.exe or UnLock MapSource 6.2.exe I get a red text on a black screen saying Map Products Not Found ?? ...
It seems to confirm that the maps are not readable whatsoever ...
Has anyone succeeded in using these advertised Unlocked Mapsource gmap for CN North America 2021.20 ???
This is the first time ever that I find an unusable Mapsource gmap on this forum.
Thank you for the feedback. In fact I did happen to try unlocking the gmap folder in Linux wine. That was the cause for the unrecognised map, as the .tdb file was unreadable following the attempt.
Performing everything in Windows did work perfectly. Sorry for the inconvenience here.

Maybe sarcasm is not the best way to ask for help?
More than 100 members have downloaded from the one host alone, without reporting an issue since August ,including myself
UnLock MapSource Error message
Maybe your unpacking got corrupted ?
Thank you for your feedback too, it is always helpful, to guide other that might fall in to a similar trap.

The behavior you describe is typical of those cases in which the conditions necessary to make this "opearation" are not clear.
These Unlocking programs are often victims of Antivirus/Antimalware.
The tools of the so-called "Security" of Windows 10 are, and I say this with almost certainty, the worst that is available on the market.
They act according to a principle that can be defined as "silly" and "elementary": "everything that does not come from, or almost from Microsoft is considered a threat".
Often it is not enough to allow the launch of UnlockMapsource.exe, but specific "exclusions" must be inserted.
I do not know your "computer" skills, but I can assure you that in most cases these problems are bypassed with a minimum of practicality.
I can also assure you that the .gmap folder you mentioned is fully functional
PS: Obviously my considerations are not meant to be offensive to anyone

Can you include Bahamas,Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Cayman Islands, Martinique and French Guyana?
CN North America includes what you seek

Thank you ScorpioPirate I was able to use your files to update my Jeep Wrangler 430N device successfully with your files, when I could not get or find any help anywhere else on the Web...took a lot of patience; however, yours worked for me you saved me $150 + tax when I am out of work.....but if I get a new job, I can now find a path to it

Garmin_Nuvi, your post #9 is great. It has Canada+border states. Could I get you to create Mexico+border states when you have time. Many thanks.
Edit:So close. It's a little too big for my 2x5W. I think if you just leave out the states not directly bordering Mexico, it will fit. California, Texas and Florida causes the large size. But those states are needed. If size is less than 1,578,000 Kbytes it will work. If couldn't get the size that small, get rid of Mexico since I can get that as a separate file already (thanks to your post)

Yes, I know. I just don't have a SD card at the moment. BTW, 2GB doesn't mean the map can be 2GB. There are other files that take up space and what is left is around 1.6GB (depending on how much TTS files you keep) It's not a big deal, since the West and East will fit. I just thought, it would be nice to have Mexico and border state with similar size and fit since you already created one for Canada and border states.
Devices Unable to Read Files Larger than 2GB in Size
