Nuvi 1200

Postby jeremaze » Thu Aug 13, 2009 9:32 pm

Got Nuvi 1200 since last week. But just open it and have a look minute ago.
I intend to load MFM into the nuvi 1200, so, connect it to pc, as usual, come out 2 drives, one Garmin device, another is sd card. When i double click the garmin icon, can't direct enter the directory, have to right click then explore.
there are many folders in same directory, not like last time, always Garmin and Jpeg or other, maybe 1 or 2 directories. nuvi 1200 Garmin folder is together with other like voice, keyboards, help, jpeg, reports, screenshot, vehicle, voice and others.
so, i guessed, the maps should store in Garmin folder, but, i found 'GarminDevice.xml' alone inside there? so where is the map? so i ask one of the member who also have nuvi1200, he said, he create a folder call 'map' paste the mfm inside the folder will do.

Maps are saved in \.system folder at root directory (along with \Garmin folder). It's a hidden folder, so you need to set PC to show hidden files and folders.

OK that should work too, but maybe you have not set Windows to show hidden files and folders?

Just upgrade the software version to 2.70, than you will see all the MFM icon coming out.
