This is the screenshort. Apparently, you can do it even when GPS is off.

No problem for me to add maps onto the SD card.

I created a Garmin Folder and placed the gmapsupp.img file there (take note that I'm using the gmapsupp name as whenever I renamed the file, my 40LM could not detect the file, a bit odd as it can detect "the other" map).

The JCV file is placed under SD Card>Garmin>JCV
