Thanks! I was eventually able to get up to 3.6 with 2018 maps after much gnashing of teeth, clicking of heels, and random cosmic ray interactions.

Now I have to ask myself if I want to update to 3.7 .... it seems like it might prevent future "can't unlock maps" issues if I do, but...

I successfully updated to 3.70 and 2018.20. Used a 32GB card previously formatted in a camera, Garmin Express, and a Mac laptop. The only hitch was getting the "Can't unlock maps" message after the system update step. Removed and reinserted card, but it only offered to update my system again. I went to the Settings / Installed Maps area and unchecked/rechecked the 2016 map. Immediately it said "Found New Maps" and offered to update. The update took a LONG time (consistent with the size of the map data) and finally finished successfully.

Leigh & Bettie, I've updated to 3.7 but my maps are 2016.2. If I might ask, how did you update the map data - did you use FusionExpress and download the Map data which appears to be a bunch of zip files. I'm downloading from FusionExpress now but am not sure whether I need to unzip the files or not? Perhaps at the end of the download it'll tell me. Thx.

I think you mean GarminExpress? You don't unZip any files; the update process handles that. I followed the recommended process, and it almost worked. I had to kickstart one part. The steps below are from memory and may not be exact.
  1. Download GarminExpress from the Garmin site to my (MacBook) laptop.
  2. Put SD card in Fusion and choose "Create Card" on Setup menu.
  3. Run GarminExpress on my laptop
  4. Insert prepared SD card into my laptop
  5. "Add Device" in GarminExpress
  6. GE recognized the Fusion codes on the card and added the device
  7. Downloaded the install package including software update and maps. Took about an hour.
  8. Took card back to Fusion and inserted it
  9. On Setup menu choose Update
  10. Proceeded to let it update the software. An R2D2 figure appears on the screen for a few minutes, the system reboots, and indicates it is now at level 3.70
  11. I can't remember if I initiated a map update, or if Fusion prompted me. But when the update started, I got the "Can't unlock maps" error.
  12. I tried removing/inserting the card, same result.
  13. I went to the Setup screen and under "Installed Maps" I unchecked and rechecked the 2016 map. The system immediately informed me there is a map update available and asked to proceed.
  14. When it started to update, R2D2 came back and the message read "Updating System" (not maps). It took a very long time, I wondered if it was hung up. But this is consistent with the large size of the data files containing the maps.
  15. When it finished and rebooted I was at 2018 maps.

Good luck.

Thank you. The process, as you described, worked like a charm! As I had already updated to 3.7 (which fixed the "Can't unlock maps" error), the map update worked without any errors or intervention but, as you stated, it took a long time - probably about an hour plus/minus! Again, thanks for your help.

So frustrating as I was excited to update to 3.7 to overcome the can’t unlock maps error, but alas mine won’t even update the software- it immediately gives me the can’t unlock maps error when I plug in the USB stick with new software and maps. I’m stuck at 3.5.

Follow these instructions carefully to update to 3.7 (maps will be updated in next step below). https://www.fusionentertainment.com/...upport/updates


After successfully updating to 3.7, insert a blank card/memory stick into your Fusion head unit, select Update in the menu and press 'Create card', take the card/stick to your computer, log into GarminExpress, insert your card/memory stick into your computer and follow GarminEpresd instructions by loading everything available onto your card/stick. Then take your card/stick back to your head unit, insert it and select Update in the menu and follow the prompts. It'll update the maps (takes about an hour plus/minus) and it'll give you an error code when finished indicating that not all updates were successful (reason being that you've already updated to 3.7 via previous step).



Good luck.

Another tick to try: with the SD card inserted, go to the Setup menu for navigation. Look for the Installed Maps check box. Uncheck your current map (2016) and recheck it. At that point, I got a message saying new maps were available, do I want to update. It worked at that point.

Thanks for replies. After doing all the crazy tricks recommended here and on another thread, I got it all updated! Hopefully next time won’t be so difficult.
