About JCV files

In the zip there are TWO *.jcv files - 22Mb and 55Mb respectively. The larger file is placed in PRODUCT_JCV_RASTER. Which one should be used? If both are required, one should be placed in JCV directory, what about the other one???

Dear unclediy,

Which of your devices are you installing the maps? The zip containing the Raster file is for high resolution devices. I also have the 2575R which is low resolution. I also have the 3560 which is high resolution but I have so far ignored the raster file and just copied the product.jcv into the /Garmin/JCV sub-folder in my SD card and it works fine.
Lean not on your own understanding
