Gimgunlock is a tool developed by wuyongzheng that can unlock Garmin map files in IMG format directly without splitting and joining. It has some advantages over other tools, such as:


  • It is super fast. It can unlock a 2.3 GB image file in less than 4 seconds.



  • It does not require any intermediate disk space. You can unlock a big image file on a SD card or USB connected GPS device directly.



  • It preserves the original header of the image file. The timestamps, version number, mapset name, etc. remain the same.



  • It runs on multiple platforms. You can use it on Windows, Mac or Linux.



  • It is easy to use. You just need to drag and drop the image file over the icon of gimgunlock.exe and it will be unlocked.



To use Gimgunlock, you need to follow these steps:


  • Download Gimgunlock from this link.[^1^]



  • Extract the zip file and copy gimgunlock.exe to a folder of your choice.



  • Backup your original map file before running Gimgunlock.



  • Drag and drop the map file (such as gmapprom.img or gmapsupp.img) over the icon of gimgunlock.exe. A command prompt window will appear and show the unlocking process.



  • Wait until the unlocking is done. The unlocked map file will have the same name and location as the original one.



That's it! You have successfully unlocked your Garmin map file with Gimgunlock. You can now use it on another device or edit it with a map editor. However, some devices may require additional steps to recognize the unlocked map file, such as creating a .unl file with an unlock code or renaming the map file. You can find more information about these steps on this forum.[^5^]


How to Edit Garmin Map Files with a Map Editor




After unlocking your Garmin map file with Gimgunlock, you may want to edit it with a map editor. A map editor is a software that allows you to modify the features and attributes of a map, such as adding or deleting waypoints, routes, tracks, POIs, etc. There are many map editors available for Garmin map files, such as MapSource, BaseCamp, GMapTool, GPSMapEdit, etc. Each map editor has its own advantages and disadvantages, so you may need to try different ones to find the one that suits your needs.


In this article, we will use MapSource as an example of a map editor. MapSource is a free software from Garmin that allows you to view and edit maps on your computer. You can download MapSource from this link.


To edit your Garmin map file with MapSource, you need to follow these steps:


  • Install MapSource on your computer and run it.



  • Click File > Open and browse to the location of your unlocked map file. Select it and click Open.



  • The map will be loaded on the MapSource window. You can zoom in or out, pan, or use the Find tool to locate any feature on the map.



  • To edit a waypoint, right-click on it and select Properties. You can change the name, symbol, comment, elevation, position, etc. of the waypoint. Click OK when done.



  • To edit a route, right-click on it and select Properties. You can change the name, color, comment, etc. of the route. You can also add or delete waypoints from the route by dragging them on the map or using the buttons on the right panel. Click OK when done.



  • To edit a track, right-click on it and select Properties. You can change the name, color, comment, etc. of the track. You can also filter or split the track by using the buttons on the right panel. Click OK when done.



  • To add a new waypoint, route, or track, use the tools on the toolbar or the menu bar. For example, to add a new waypoint, click Waypoint Tool and click on the map where you want to place it. Then right-click on it and select Properties to edit it.



  • To delete a waypoint, route, or track, right-click on it and select Delete.



  • When you are satisfied with your edits, click File > Save As and choose a name and location for your edited map file. Make sure to save it as an IMG file.



That's it! You have successfully edited your Garmin map file with MapSource. You can now transfer it to your device or use it with another software. 0efd9a6b88
