No system file

 

Hi all
I hope someone can help me I have recently changed from pc to Mac and I have just downloaded latest Garmin map for my 3490LMT but although I know they are on the USB thumb drive I cannot see the system folder.
I have set my Mac to show hidden files but when I click go>go to folder>system it saying no file found.
Thanks in advance Dell

Like many other MAC OS files the Garmin System file on the Nuvi is hidden. You can use the free utility TinkerTool (http://www.bresink.com/osx/TinkerTool.html) to show hidden and system files.

Sorted

thanks for all the reply's but as others have said I forgot to put a full stop before system
.system so it shows my signature is correct old man but still learning

Well, you taught me

Well, you taught me something. While the .system file won't show, using the Go To will take you right to it. Thanks.
