Hi,
I just bought a garmin nuvi 40 from the US. I downloaded the latest map v562 and place the .img in the garmin folder.
It didn't work. It's able to locate satellite but only able to see the roads without any name or direction.

Does the map support nuvi 40?

Thanks!

Go buy a SD card, create a sub-folder garmin and put the map file gmapsupp.img there
