This tutorial will try to explain you the additions files, what they are used for and

how to update these files.

support all your device features, will find the IMG(maps) files gmapbmap.img(the
base map), gmapdem.img(DEM map) and other folders, the most important for the
update are ASR, JCV, G2S and SQlite.

Lets see what and how to update this folder with the right files.


In this folder will find the files that enable the Voice Command on your device. Not
all the models have this feature, so if the your device dont support it you dont have
to do this update.
ASR files are different for different Map versions, if you update the map you have
to update the ASR files too. Different version of maps - EXP. CN Europe NT and
CN Europe NTU have 2 different Set of files and have to use the right one to have
Voice Command enable.
These files are XXXX.ASR and XXXX.SRX, delete all previous ASR and SRX files
and copy the new one, you can have more than one version of Voice Command files
in ASR folder, EXP. Can have European ASR and American ASR in the same time.
Important: You dont have to rename these files, just use like they are.
To update this feature copy ASR+SRX files in
Device:\.System\ASR Folder - for NEW models with hidden .System folder.
Device:\Garmin\ASR Folder - for the other models with no hidden .System
