my 255w bit keeps telling me that there isnt any maps. i've put the unlock code in the garmin directory, but still no avail. i'm pretty sure the gmapprom.img is corrupt. any place where i can find a copy to overwrite?

Do you know what the year of map you had on your unit? The unlock code is based upon on the map year and your units internal serial number. The file is very large (1 GB). It takes 45 minutes to write a map on a Nuvi - Longer if you have to download it first.
