City Navigator North America NT 2018.10

Where can one get all necessary copies of City Navigator North America NT 2018.10 in order to load it up on my 2012 Navi system?

I believe you have to own a Garmin GPS with lifetime updates.
I'm not sure you can even buy the maps without owning an appropriate GPS.
I have read that purchased maps on SD cards will not contain junction view files. (jcv files)

Even if you own a Garmin gps with these maps, it's not legal to put a copy of it on the Goldwing gps.

The CN 2018.10 IMG file and JCV file are over 3 GB in size.

Updates for Goldwings are scheduled by Honda and not Garmin. The maps are usually
several updates behind when they are released.

It would almost be worth buying a cheap gps with lifetime maps. Of course the rug could get pulled at any time if the unlocker tools fail to work any longer

Yes, you can get a Garmin GPS with lifetime map updates for very little money these days. And as others have said, you need to justify the legal issues for yourself.

However, if you want, send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you some instructions I've written which may help you.

Note that there is a Navigation sum-forum here: http://gl1800riders.com/forums/118-navi/

Here is a thread which talks about updating the maps on the GL: FYI - How to update your NAVI to the latest everything

There are other similar threads - do a search.

The legality of the instructions is questionable, so I'm not comfortable doing that on an open forum.

I've used Mark's instructions. Very thorough and easy to follow. When and if Garmin makes the Goldwing GPS available as a purchase for lifetime update, I'll purchase it. Until then you just have to be creative.

Still more traveling to do!
