Download both parts below and extract using WinRAR or 7-Zip. Internet Explorer users are required to use another browser as Internet explorer will crash. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and even Edge should work without issue. No requests to upload the JCV file to other sites will be accepted, so do not ask.
This is your quickest response on the large JCV file yet!
D3060220A.jcv recombined for a 866,531,139 byte file.
Thank you, nice work
Downloading right now. It will work in my old 855 but not in the 2797 I know.
Thank you for making the full-screen JCV available!
I installed 7-Zip and there are three .exe files in its folder: 7z.exe; 7zFM.exe; and 7zG.exe. Which is correct for a Win-7 system? From their names I guessing it's 7z.exe but I'd rather hear that from someone who's familiar with 7-Zip.
Never mind. I used WinRAR and got the large .JCV file downloaded and stitched together.
very fast this time. Many thanks.
Thank you for making the full JCV file available.
7-Zip 9.20 gave me a broken file message on Part 2, but WinRAR extracted and combined both parts correctly.
For making this available I thank you very much
worked updated my 1450 with no problems and used full jvc downloaded yea
Thank you for sharing
I downloaded the files and created the Large Junction View file.
Thank you! Always look for this for the old 1450.
You're the best. Need it for my 1390T.
Really helpful, much appreciated!
Where is this file installed??
If you're asking for your nuvi 760, the answer is nowhere since the 7x0 series does not support junction views.
If you have a nuvi 8x5, 1390, or 14xx, place it in the device's \Garmin\jcv folder in the nuvi or the SD card's \Garmin\jcv folder and delete or disable the smaller jcv file you find in that folder which was the default tiny jcv file installed during the last map update. I also suggest you update your profile here at The Factory to indicate your newer device.

Does Garmin still release these files directly? They used to have it on their download section of the website. I'm curious where this download came from?
No they don't, and haven't for a few years now.
The download came from me, because the account it's uploaded to is mine. I've used the site for years, and have never had trouble with it. Most people on this site have not had issues trying to download this, unless they attempt to use Internet Explorer.
The last time Garmin directly offered the large JCV file from a Garmin download site was with the 2015.30 map version:
Since this time, one of our POI Factory members, who has a device that still receives the large JCV file from Garmin through a map update, has offered the current large JCV file on a file sharing site, and this site is not one of the sites that offer pirated City Navigator map files.
I will say, though, that the above FAQ does confirm that we have checked with Garmin and they have no problem with sharing this JCV file with each map update.
for providing this.
Thanks. Good work
From what I have been able to tell, the only devices that still get the large JCV file directly from Garmin with a map update are the nuvi 7x5 series and the zumo 6xx series. It would be interesting to know if Strephon is getting the file on his nuvi 13xx or a different model not listed in his profile. In any case we are all thankful to him for taking the time and effort to post the file for other members.
Thank you for the excellent info!
I tried it with my 3597 and it did not look good. Could not see the entire JCV picture.
I am better with the regular split screen.
Even with a new 3597, I still strongly prefer the full screen JCV.
I preview any expected complex interchanges on Google Maps before a trip and just use the JCVs as notices that I am nearing those interchanges and as quick reminderers of the useful lane(s) to get me through. I watch traffic and road conditions, not the GPS, to get through safely.
I noticed something unexpected yesterday when I drove to a destination near downtown Atlanta - While most JCVs appeared full screen, some JCV's on the 3597 still appeared in the split acreen format while I was driving on the complex I75-I85 corridor through downtown. (Note: The only JCV file on the 3597 is the much appreciated full screen file provided by Strephon Alkhalikoi.)
Because the split screen views occured in an area where the interstate strongly curves left and then right, I found the multiple scrolling purple lines quite distracting. (There were 6 lanes and 5 of them were acccceptable to use through the interchange.) Not a big deal - but it does reinforce my preference for the full screen JCVs.
Obviously these split screen JCVs are only seen on units that can access them, but does anyone know if they are part of the JCV file or if they are included in the map update itself?
The active lane guidance views are not part of the JCV file, so switching to the full screen JCV will not change those. I think we determined that birdseye junction views are part of the JCV file, but I am not sure whether you would get those with the full screen file. By swapping the split screen for the full screen file, my guess is that you are giving up the birdseye views ... just a guess on my part, so maybe you can confirm if you ever see a birdseye view when using the full screen file.
I have not seen any birdseye views since switching to full screen JCVs. However, I did not see any while using the split screen JCV file either.
Where I live, there are no birdeye views nearby. The only place I have driven since getting the 3597 where I would expect to see birdseye views would be the Atlanta area. On trips near Atlanta using the split screen JCV file, I went around I-285 (not through downtown area) and do not remember there being any birdseye views of the interchanges I passed through. I'll continue to look for them, but I do not expect to see any using the full screen file. Again, not a problem since I preview any complex interchanges on the desktop and on the GPS before leaving home and do not rely on the GPS when navigating an interchange.
Also, as you noted, I see no difference in active lane guidance, whether using the full or split screen JCV file.
Active lane guidance is included in the map file so changes to the jcv file won't affect it.
I down loaded 1 and 2 D3060220A BUT CAN'T OPEN THEM. HOW DUE YOU CHANGE RAR FILE TO THE GARMIN FILE.
Use one of the programs listed in the original post. Use the links there to download WinRAR or 7-Zip
Then, follow program directions to open Part 1. Part 2 will also be incorporated into the unzip process by the program.
Thanks also I really appreciate that
Please add my thanks for the file !
Thanks Strephon_Alkhalikoi, for once again making the large JCV available.
How gracious of you to provide us once again with the latest large JCV. I thank you, and my 1490T thanks you Strephon!
Strephon only keeps the large JCV file for the current map version which is 2018.10. The 2017.30 file was removed on Jan. 19 when 2018.10 came out.
