#1 Post by ahhl » Fri Nov 16, 2018 9:53 am

not sure where to post this question, but i hope you all dont mind i post on newbie thread

i have garmin map pilot SD card for mercedes NTG5.1 . whether i can use malsingmap on it as mercedes map not always updated. so most new road missing from the map.
i have look thru the SD content, it does not have single map file. all breakdown to smaller file. the sdcard is lock to car vin. so it not transferable.

whether anyway i can use malsingmap on it?

Hello ahhl,

Welcome to MSM. Usually maps like these are controlled by blood sucking car dealers. They probably charge you $ to update.
Having said that, our map is compatible with all Garmin units provided if your SD card is not locked.

Could you pls show us what is inside your current SD card?

it lock with car VIN so no one can transfer it to another car or duplicate. it lock to VIN and to that particular SDCard.

Do you see any Garmin or Map folder? Could it be hidden? I'm looking for gmapprom.img or Gmapsupp.img file

i have been searching for that img file but cannot find. never thought it could be hidden. i always thought map pilot work with small file.

let me go through the sd again whether theres hidden files or directory

Ahhl,

I am guessing but I have a feeling Benz could have done something so you need to go back to them for support.
I have share your problem with some MSM Sifus. I was told the Map Pilot unit works a little differently from
Nuvi and handheld. Give me a bit of time. Hopefully we can work out something for you.

I found this:

Looks like they want to control what you load.

chkdsk shows nothing hidden except the lock file.

merz give update free for 60days. but i still able to update this year. maybe the last one. still, the problem is that updated map, still 'old' map with missing new road.

have not tried to update it lately.
i have tried to place gmapsupp, gmapbase in the sd but nothing happened.

Don't give up yet. Have you installed the Map Pilot updater prog?

https://shop.mercedes-benz.com/en-gb/co ... -map-pilot

Run it see if you can insert our gmapsupp.img from there.
