Which 7-Zip .exe to use?

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.

7-Zip vs WinRAR

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.

Thank you

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. cool

More on the large jcv file, especially if you own a different Garmin device than those I mention above:

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?

It's not comforting that a foreign website wants to execute javascript to download a RAR file.

Nope

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.

In your case, you had to have shut off javascript in your browser in order to even see a prompt about executing javascript. I can understand the desire to improve the security of your system, but disabling javascript doesn't help as much as you think it does. Unlike java, javascript is very quickly patched. Javascript is not the same thing as java.

You can do whatever you wish of course, but disabling javascript is not recommended. Since a great deal of the Internet uses javascript in some form, whether it's fishing for additional images in Google image search without having to click on a new page or even logging in to some sites, if you want the file you're going to have to turn javascript on.

The last time Garmin directly offered the large JCV file from a Garmin download site was with the 2015.30 map version:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/45292

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've not downloaded the large JCV file for my nuvi 855 for quite some time now and have no thoughts on the site or how it works but it appears that many folks here have successfully downloaded the file with each map update and had no problems. I leave it to others to discuss the javascript issue with the web site.

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.

Thanks

for providing this.

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.

I tried it with my 3597 and

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.

3597 with Full Screen - Some Split Screen Views

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?

Active lane guidance.

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.

No Birdseye View

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.

Well ...

Active lane guidance is included in the map file so changes to the jcv file won't affect it.

Thank you! That gives confidence in the source download. As a cyber security professional, I never allow javascript to execute from unknown sites. I do allow it to execute from sites that I trust. This is because a whole category of current attacks that distribute ransomware, malware, botnet malware, etc. exploit vulnerabilities in browsers that are discovered almost constantly by malicious shops that operate for profit and other motivating factors worldwide. This has saved me numerous times from getting attacked on my daily machine, while my malware test machine routinely gets attacked with ransomware attempts and other nasty malware.

Firefox's No Script add-on is a great way to customize who you allow to execute javascript.

I down loaded 1 and 2 D3060220A BUT CAN'T OPEN THEM. HOW DUE YOU CHANGE RAR FILE TO THE GARMIN FILE.

Go to Original Post

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.

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.
