    garmin Birdeye

    Just got a 830 after 6/7 years with a 800.

    I'm unable to transfer all my downloaded stuff to the 830 , from what I understand , the downloaded stuff will work only on my 800.
    Means I have to register and pay and download all these AGAIN (time consuming)

    Anybody knows a work around ?

    I tried to upload the maps directly but it doesn't work

    Can I transfer the "rights" from my 800 to my 830 ?

    I'm not aware of any workarounds. you mean you actually use imagery on your Garmin? I tried it on my Oregon 450 years ago, didn't care for it, so now I only use topos.

    Yes I've always used imagery , I guess I'll only use topo from now on .....

    I'm very pissed that these are usable for one unit only , heck , even Apple don't do that.
    You can listen to your downloaded song on all your phones/iPod.

    I remember back when Garmin introduced these and that issue was a subject of ire for many. Consequently, I never purchased Garmin's Birdseye imagery. I used the backdoor method of acquiring free imagery for my GPS. That may be something worth considering if you really want to use imagery.

    Reading back on some of my old blog stuff, I mentioned that I used Topofusion to load imagery onto my Oregon. It's in there under the File > Export Current View and you have to check the box next to "export kmz for Garmin GPS" option. I'm not entirely sure how it'd work for your Edge since Topofusion hasn't been updated for quite awhile.

    Here's Garmin's old blog post on how to do it with Google Earth. Not sure what use that'll be since Google Earth has been deprecated.

    Here's another utility tutorial for getting other maps.

    For that matter, there might be free maps available on the gpsfiledepot site that'll suit your needs.

    These aren't exactly a workaround for getting Birdseye imagery onto your GPS and getting around Garmin's device lock. It's more of a workaround to Birdseye imagery altogether so you don't have to pay for imagery at all.
