Will this work straight onto a Navman MY75T via micro SSD card without any trickery or issues?
Bear with me here as I'm a total luddite in this area.

Don't know the Navman products however, if this navman is a straight out of the box product along the same lines as a Tom Tom or Garmin then No it won't. If you can run OziExplorer on it then yes it would.

Hi Rosco,

As per WSB's reply above, the Navman can only utilise additional mapping that is purchased from Garmin Australia's website (EOTopo is not compatible). I hope this information helps, and if you require any further assistance, please just let me know.

Hi
As others have stated - in standard trim the Navman uses different format maps ...so no go. However if you unlock it (if possible) and install OziExplorerCE the EOTopo maps will work fine. The process of unlocking is actually very easy...once you get the correct procedure for your particular unit sussed out. I did a few several years ago (on Mio units) but haven't bothered in recent times so have forgotten the process.

Its all on the GPS Passion Forum


These days cheapest and easiest option is probably to go buy an android tablet and run Ozi on that, but if you have some spare time unlocking your current device maybe "fun" and result in suitable outcome.

So, will it follow that to run it on a VMS in-dash unit (T7023), you will need to go in through OziExplorer also ?

Hello

Sorry for late reply - been out bush

I am not familiar with VMS units but there is a free "VMS map converter" that will convert ecw format maps (as supplied on EoTopo) to VMS format - Download here - VMS Map Converter - so one can assume that you would not need to use OziExplorer if you have a VMS unit.

There is sometimes an issue with some conversion programs (maybe not this one) if file sizes are too big, so I cant guarantee this will work in this instance...maybe Dave could try a conversion and see it works, then let us know for future reference.

Cheers
