    I "got" a card from someone.

    called: Garmin CN Europe NTU 2023.20 Gmap (unlocked)

    I had to put these files in basecamp where the maps are all located

    Done in : C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\BaseCamp\Maps

    Get the map neatly displayed and map toolbar, and works perfectly with route making etc.
    But when I choose the install map option, I didn't see the map in question.

    Now I have copied this same file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\MapInstall
    Then I did see the file and I can also very nicely select a part of the map to send to the GPSMAP64s.

    But when I do this no matter what size I select it says installation completed on basecamp but then I get an error message on the GPSMAP64s after installation.

    Can't Authenticate Maps. Contact content seller for help

    Can someone help me what I need to do to get this map working in my GPSMAP64s

    Thanks in advance for reading.

    When the maps are visible in Garmin Basecamp you can check on their 'lock' status using Maps >> Manage Map Products, this will show a screen like this :-


    This screen will show you if your map really is unlocked, NOTE you may need to have the GPSMap64 connected to the computer running Basecamp to get a full list of results
