Several points:

  1. The NT format of the maps is not supported yet, not much is known about it.
  2. Unlocking the map in mapsource doesn't unlock it in the way it can be used from other software. Locked maps are not supported for obvious reasons.
  3. What you see is probably the base map which is not locked.

You can try with MetroGuide?(non-NT version) which is not locked or some of the free maps that can be found on the net.
