Language Guide Transfer from Computer

 

I have the language guide on an SD card. I copied it on my computer and then I switched out the LEX_PKG on my Garmin. When I started the Garmin back up the program was locked Is there any way to unlock this program? There was one file on the card that I didn't put on the GPS the gmapsupp.uni because there was not a file to switch it out with. It was separate from the Lex_Pkg on the card Thanks Jerry

This guide?

Is this what you have?

One requirement for this item is:

Use with One Device Only

This download only may be used on 1 compatible device. Data downloaded to a microSD/SD card is associated with the device you select during the download process. Please purchase additional quantities for additional devices.

Assuming the transfer can be made as you're doing, is your computer set to show Hidden and System Files? If not, you may be missing a needed file.

Thanks It is set to show hidden files and folders. You are probably right, it may not work on this unit but I am not going to buy another one, just thought I would see if it would transfer.

You could purchase the Guide on SD card at one time, as I have one. In that case you can use the Language Guide on any compatible device, much like maps that are purchased on SD cards. So it the OP has an ORIGINAL Garmin Language Guide SD card he should be able to simply place the card in another device. As he's seen, you can't just copy the contents of the card from one place to another.
