    Default Updating Garmin Maps

    Exactly how do we update the maps on the 2012 Navi? I am pretty sure they are located on the hidden SD card (not the custom route card). Has anyone done this yet?

    How to update 2012 Navi maps:

    1) Download files

    Code:
    gmapsupp.img (1.84 GB)
    https://mega.co.nz/#!NB5lzTIB!VP16xERKlxqUqbUJcmBixkGOxCJY9CZ-wjD3HXyOVG4
    
    D3191080A.JCV (448.0 MB)
    https://mega.co.nz/#!1dhBwbhJ!dn21w11Q-AFmz4p_QTQj_Tgr249BKnRKeZg1Rk10yQQ


    2) Take SD card from the trunk (lower one, behind the grey cover).

    3. Connect SD to your computer and make full backup of it! The Best way is take another 4Gb SD card, copy all content from original card to it, put original card in safe place and use cloned card.

    4. Copy new downloaded files to your SD card.

    5. Insert card back, start Navgation. Enjoy newest 2013.40 map. Leave feedback

    to all, who downloading this torrent: actually you dont need to download all files from this torrent (7 Gb), you only need "IMG/IMG/gmapsupp.img" file (1.7Gb)

    seems to have worked fine in my '12. Copied the file over, it did not have a file named the same to replace. Fired up the Navi and it lists the map as 2013.20. I've browsed the map some and didn't have any issues. A paved road by my house is no longer listed as unpaved. I haven't had a chance to run a route yet but everything looks good.

    Renaming it gmapprom.img may be the issue you are having. Make sure it is a Garmin folder too.

    It will work 100%
    Discussed file have "Garmin City Navigator NT" format, which 2012 Navi uses. In previous 2006-2010 Navi uses "Non-NT" Garmin format.

    The download and maps worked for me. Does anyone know which JCV file we need to get the latest junction view map?

    Are you sure? Because without bottom SD card your navigation system can't be loaded. You must see "Insert SD card" message on screen

    Well, let me eat a little crow here; the card is there. The top card sticks out enough to see the the top of it, but the bottom one is so far in, it's not visible. By feeling, and pushing in to retract it, I found it. Sorry for the confusion.
