So i have been doing some testing attempting to try to load Topo Maps onto a mygig 430N(Garmin)

i think i might have it working:koolaid2:

anyone in Canada want to beta test?

Sorry i only have Canadian Topo Maps, if there is alot of interest i'm sure i can get some US maps

I don't have much use for Canadian maps, but I'm interested in what you've done. I've considered extracting the hard drive and side loading it to see if the files could be swapped out.

Well that sucks...I also have a 430, didn't want to go through the hassle of using it in my 2011.

Will the mod still retain all other functions and street maps?

I agree with Matti here. The 730 was a real pain. The hard drive and files were all some obscure goofy format, and everything was locked down and protected and checksumed. You could not edit or change anything or it would just not work anymore or completely ignore your changes.

I'll run out and take some pics today.

Yes it should have no effect (other than hard drive space taken up)

How are you getting these files on there? I assume through the usb. I have US topo maps on cd and would like to use them if possible.

its done with USB yes,

what i'm doing is fooling the 430N into thinking the TOPO maps are a valid map update from Chrysler.

If the tests work i will release full instructions to the masses.

Oh and the TopoMaps im using are Garmins newest(the same or newer than your CD, acutally mine is multiple DVD's)

TOPO U.S. 24K North Central DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K Northeast DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K South Central DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K Southeast DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K Southwest DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K West DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K PuertoRico DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K Hawaii DVD
TOPO U.S. 24K Mid-Atlantic DVD

OK, I gave it a try.

I got a message that:
"map update failed" retry or contact your dealer....

and then PDR (I think) update succeed.

I don't think it liked the map file, failed right away, like it didn't even try.

Looks like 44.* does not like the map files.

We can try a downgrade to 33.* and see it it will load the maps. Let me do some testing with your software version.


Its strange that it let the PDR update tho.......

yup 44.* don't like it

if you have a blank DVD you can burn a "update" DVD that will downgrade you

1. The raw files are here -----> http://www.mydrive.ch

username: [email protected]
password: gasolio

Go to the Folder Software-Update RER-REW-REP there you find RHB-RBZ-RB2-33-01-23.iso

Once the disc is burned.......

Do not attempt to install WITHOUT THE MOTOR RUNNING! If the MyGig looses power at anytime during the install you can forget about the MyGig ever working again!

It is VERY IMPORTANT to read the following instructions before you attempt to install. Failure to read could turn your pretty MyGig into a expensive brick mounted in your dash!

http://mofv.com/MyGIG/SoftwareInstall.htm

What ever you do do NOT remove the disc till the MyGig asks you to install the software a second time! This is the equivalent of the "Your installation is complete" window. Then you simply click "NO" then you can eject the disc.

We could also try to load it without the CN (City Navigation) and make it Topo Only just to see if that works.... let me know.
