The plug-in was not unlocked successfully - AGAIN!
Posted 05 March 2009 - 03:14 PM
So what have I done since then:
1. I've used Windows Explorer to transfer a Wherigo file to the Oregon
2. I've installed a mini-SD card of street maps
With the card installed and the Oregon connected to the USB, I get the Windows Autoplay options on the PC and the Oregon goes to the Menu screen, not the connected to PC logo screen. I can't do anything from this screen and when I try to transfer cache files I get the 'The plug-in was not unlocked successfully' message.
If I take the card out, I do get the logo screen but when I try to transfer I still get the error message.
The Garmin Communicator Plugin page on the website shows me the unit is connected properly.
Any ideas, anyone?

If you are transferring them from your computer to the GPS unit, then the plug in is not involved. Any errors that would be getting in this situation are not related to the Garmin Communicator plugin.

This morning for the first time, Garmin would not allow me to send a google map to my Nuvi 500. Got the same 'plugin not unlocked' message. My search led me to this thread and then to this:
Probably old news to most folks but I'd never heard of it. Works like a champ! Easily takes any google map page (and probably any page with map data, not just google) and cranks out a gpx file. Thought it worth mentioning here. Thanks everyone!
