    hi
    kinda noob with this so bare with me.

    GPS in question - Route 66 mini
    my father inlaw bought one online, it doesn't have a europe map on it, don't want to spend 100 € on a map. SO searching away in the dephts of google I was and I stubled on this link [link removed] , it took a good while to download the map, but evetually I got the file.

    when I put it on a SD card to the maps folder, GPS device recognized the map, but says it's locked. Is there a way to unlock it?

    I don't know what that site is, but it's probably an illegal copy of a commercial product. That sort of thing can't be discussed here.

    Yes, by purchasing a license to use the map.

    At that link, I see two apparent choices just for a map: Europe on DVD or Eastern Europe on a CD.

    they are software products, what mean that they are installeble on mobile devices such as PDA's and smartphones
    and no, they are not compatible

    Sounds like you will need to ask the company how to properly purchase and acquire their maps.

    Did you download and install the Route 66 sync software first and then look to see what is available for your unit?

  • hi folk, newbie here,
    i have a gps sat nav with Europe maps on it.
    due to a change in the law in France, i want to disable the fixed speed camera programme.
    the french police can now take your gear and fine you up to 1500€ if found with this programme.
    any one know how to disable it, or format the SD card so I can re install without camera warnings?
    i am running Route 66

    cheers rodders 👓
