Unable to download the file mentioned above. It seems the link is broken. Any other link? t noticed that before, its fixed now ..

wheres the keygen? i didnt find it here. does it work with internal gps? im using samsung i780 with windows mobile 6
added the direct link in the post now. I could not find the link. would you please to tell me where I can find it. thx. Cant find likn for downloading keygen? I couldnt activate the maps. I followed the steps above..

It doesnt work with me too, failed to activated. im using kaiser HTC TyTn II, I created the file sw.unl with the 25 code and copy it to

STORAGE CARD and to GARMIN FOLDER. But when starting GARMIN XT apps the Screen still locked. I have tried all codes.
it works fine, maybe you entered the wrong device ID. Or you named the sw.unl.txt ? I little bit confuse abt open garmin apps. Coz when u installed it. It only made 3 folder at my pda. 1 is the 2557 which should be delete, 2nd the garmin folder which contain many folder ( Apps, EULA, Vehicle) and the last one is garmin XT.exe, coz the last folder didnt make any changed when i clik it BTW i use MIO A 700. thanks [Reply]

I have successfully installed teh software on mu imate ultimate 8502, but the only issue I m facing is that there is no voice support, How can I enable the voice support, When I go to the setting in the Audio I donot

find anything in front of voice. I have got the voice files from teh internet, but can anyone tell me where to put the folder. Regards [Reply]

hi..just FYI, if you already solved the problem..good for u.. if not here it is.If u already found the voice, you need to make a new older in your phone (that is in Garmin folder - not the one in the phone memory - the one that is in your memory card/storage card) name the folder voice wothout the quote..paste your new voice there and you done.. BUT, 1 problem i found is that, you must name you voice file name to English_British.vpm or English_American.vpm without the quote. Then only your GArmin will detect voice option. I donno why cannot use other name.. I hope this will help. Happy navigating.. [Reply]
