Large Fullscreen JCV File Questions

Does anyone know the file name for the newest large Garmin fullscreen, lane-assisted, photo-realistic JCV file, that was named D3060230A.jcv for the 2018.10 map update and D3060220Afor the 2017.30 map update? I would expect the file to be named D3060240A.jcv but a Google search for this file name comes up empty.

Second question: Does anyone know the Garmin model number that first used the above-mentioned large JCV files natively, i.e., the large JCV file comes with the navigation receiver, does not require a custom upgrade and downloads the large JCV file during the map update process?

The first device that received the Large JCV was likely the nuvi 7x5 series (August 2008):

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/42240

If I'm wrong, someone will correct me soon.

Regarding the Large JCV file for the 2018.20 map, it's probably too early for an internet search to find it. My guess is that the easiest thing to do is wait a few days upon which a thread will appear here with the link to download, filename, size, etc.

large JCV

Junction views were introduced on the nuvi 7x5T series in 2008. Quarterly map updates (instead of annual) were also introduced at that time and lifetime map subscription followed soon thereafter.

The full screen full coverage JCV file for 2018.20 is D3060240A.jcv (823 MB or 865,447,975 bytes). At this time, the large JCV file only downloads with map updates for the nuvi 7x5 series and zumo 6xx.

Any idea why Garmin doesn't post the large jvc for download anymore. A lot of us still want/need it. The small jcv is kind of useless where I live. Nothing shows up.

My guess is that there are a dwindling number of 1390/14xx and 8x5 owners with lifetime map update subscriptions that care enough to go through the effort to download and install the large JCV. So they make a few people mad, but save the hassle of trying to support a non standard process.

The thing that annoys me is that there is no technical reason that they can't just include the large JCV file with the map update ... especially on the 1390/14xx nuvis where map update to SD is supported by Garmin Express. The 8x5 series is more problematic, but I think Garmin could still come up with a way to do it without much effort.

I have a 765 and a 1490
If I update he 765 I will get the large JVC file - is that correct?
how do I put that onto the 1490?

large JCV

On the 765, you will find the new large JCV file in folder /Garmin/JCV. Copy the file to a temporary location on your PC. Then plug in your 1490. Find the /.system/JCV folder and rename the .JCV file in there to something else (eg. change .JCV to .SAV). Then create folder /Garmin/JCV on the SD card for your 1490 and copy the large JCV file from your computer into that folder. If the /Garmin/JCV folder is already on your SD card, delete or rename any files that are in there before you copy the large JCV file there.

Note that on your 1490, you will need to expose the hidden .system folder if you haven't already done that. There is a FAQ here that tells you how to do that.

I deleted all the downloaded files in the locations that you posted and did an update on the map. Re-downloaded the new map and it worked right away. The original map must have glitched out and every update/re-install kept building the defective map and wouldn't work and gave me the same results. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it. Now all I need is a large jcv.

Map update

When I used GE to update the maps on my older Nuvi it only updated the lower 49 states even though the previous map included Canada and I'm installing to a SD card with plenty of space. Was able force the install of the full map.

I'll wait until I get back home in August to update ..... RV Park Wifi not the fastest!

I just wasted one hour and

I just wasted one hour and 19 minutes on my cell phone with Garmin and what they - the high muckety muck (the first Garmin rep's own words) - wound up telling me was the same thing they tried to tell me two years ago - I can't update the maps on my Garmin 276C and the lifetime maps I bought were only for the lifetime of the device which they declare is now over, reason being my device doesn't have enough room for the new maps, which is a totally spurious explanation because I have always installed the maps directly to my computer and from there moved the maps I needed to the 276C and it has plenty of room for the maps I need.

Sorry to hear.

Sorry to hear that werewolf ... but don't give up just yet. Keep your eye on MapUpdater, and Garmin may still enable it for 2018.20.

If not and if you have a friend or relative with a newer device, see if they will allow you to install the map update to your computer for their device. Then see if you can get the unlock code for your 276C using myGarmin. I don't remember the exact process for doing that, but it has come up before in the forums. I have no idea if this would work on a 276C, but it may be worth a try.

Yeah, alandb, I thought of

Yeah, alandb, I thought of that. If I can get a computer with the 2018.2 maps installed than perhaps I can move them to my 276 same as I always do with my computer. I forgot the unlock code procedure but if it works on my computer it should work on another, like say I bought a new computer. And yes I'll keep checking the Mapupdater, because the high muckety said that Garmin stopped supporting it years ago and he didn't know how I was using it to update all along, but I'm skeptical because in the past I think the updates appeared right away on Mapupdater as soon as they became available.

Oh - The Garmin man said that they are temporarily offering a 20% discount if I buy another GPS from them, but that doesn't apply to new and hot selling items. Any suggestions on something not new and not too hot that might replace my 276C which I mainly use for road driving but also off the road into the desert?

Time, etc.

Started at 1300 EDT. It finished at 1334.

Download was both 2797 and the computer.

The JCV shows 495,924KB.

Something strange: Going to the Store under this device (I have two others registered) and clicking Vehicle & Voices.

FEATURE NOT AVAIALBLE
Vehicle & Voices is no longer available. You can keep andy custom vehicles and voices you have, yada, yada, yada....

You won't be able to use Express to install new ones or remove them.

Huh?

3597 refurb?

Yes indeed, a Garmin offer of 10-20% off is hardly worth it when you can probably get a better deal at Best Buy or an online seller.

Thoughts on a replacement? I'd look at the factory-refurbed nuvi 3597:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/46627

Montana?

Well, a Montana might be a good possibility, but by the time you buy the device, automotive mount and CN map, it gets pretty expensive. And unfortunately, last I heard, it was no longer possible to buy a lifetime map subscription from Garmin for devices that don't come with City Navigator pre installed (Montana being one of them). This is because Garmin no longer sells the DVD version of the map.

You might be better off buying 2 devices ... one for road navigation and another for off road. It would probably be cheaper in the long run.

Edit ... And I agree with CraigW ... the 3597LMTHD refurb can't be beat for road navigation. You could get the nuvi 3597 for road navigation and a new Oregon 600 for offroad, less than $400 for both.

Thanks for the refurb 3597 suggestion, guys. I'm ogling it now.

3597

@werewolf ... one thing is for sure ...
If you get the 3597 you will definitely be able to get the 2018.20 map installed on your computer. And that will give you the opportunity to see if you can unlock and MapInstall it to your 276C.

Keep us posted.

Good point - and what I'm trying to figure out now is what is the map situation with their refurb GPS and what do those teeny weeny little footnotes mean...and of course the importance of the info is always inverse to the size of the font! That's me asking questions under Q&A

http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-nuvi-3597lmthd-newly-overhaule...

Can I ask you a a question about the 3597? Will it show dirt roads in the desert like my 276C does using City Navigator? Will it show my waypoints there? Will I be able to make new waypoints there and change or delete my old ones?

I've been using GPS from way back, when almost no one knew what GPS meant, from the old Garmin Model 2 and then the 2+. But I've been using the 276C and its predecessor, the 176, for so long I don't know what the capabilities of the new models are. I understand they've largely been simplified and dumbed down, but they also have lots of great new features. If they can do the things I mentioned above and store enough waypoints - I have 689 now - than they might suit me, or at least that 3597 might.

PS MapUpdater is still only offering CN 2018.1

3597

A couple of points ... theGPSstore.com has the 3597LMTHD refurb for $50 less than gpsCity. They are both reliable online stores that many POI Factory members have purchased from.

I would think that the City Navigator map would show the same roads whether you are looking at them on a 3597 or the 276C. But then, this is Garmin, so who knows? If you want to give a couple of specific examples I will check it out on my 3597. You can create/edit/delete up to 1000 waypoints on a 3597 ... they are called "Saved Places". The downside of 3597 saved places is the large ugly icon that is displayed ... no way to use your own custom icons unless you convert them with POI Loader to custom POI's. If you convert them to custom POI's though, you can not edit or delete the individual POI's on the device itself.

You should be able to transfer your 276C waypoints (through BaseCamp or MapSource) over to the 3597 (not sure if 276C is compatible with BaseCamp, but Mapsource should work.)

The map you get with the 3597 will probably be 2 or more years old, but with the lifetime updates, you will be able to update to 2018.20 with Garmin Express.

Another thing for your consideration ... the battery life on the 3597 is pretty dismal compared to the handhelds ... about an hour with full screen brightness. I am not sure how you use your 276C, but with the 3597, you need to keep it powered.

I do keep it powered,

I do keep it powered, mounted on my vehicle dashboard, plugged in the cig lighter.

276C is compatible with Basecamp, tho I am more familiar with the older Mappsource.

The large ugly icon sounds like it might block out parts of the map, no?

I must take a look at GPSStore too then.

The question is does it or doesn't the refurb come with the "lifetime" updates, which is what I have been trying to figure out in their Q&A section. If I have to buy it separately it might bring the price up closer to a nice new unit. Also, when will garmin's lawyers decide that the "lifetime" of the 3597 is over? How long has it been off their catalogue?

I won't really be able to determine whether a different GPS suits me until I actually try it out in the field. Can I return a refurb if I don't like it? That info would be on their website.

Thanks for your help!

Lifetime maps.

Lifetime maps are included with refurbs. theGPSstore lists it as "Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD Refurbished with Lifetime Maps". In fact, lifetime map subscriptions from Garmin transfer with the device even with devices bought used.

As far as returns, I have never returned an item to either of the stores mentioned. But reading their return policies, it appears that gpsCity has a more liberal policy than theGPSstore. For full disclosure, I bought my 3597 from theGPSstore (about 3 years ago).

So when their little footnote says that only certain models have the lifetime updates, are there different models of the 3597, some with and some without? That's what I was trying to find out from them in their Q&A section and I seem to be having a hard time getting a straight answer, last response being a suggestion that I call Garmin Support.
