I loaded 'Northwest Trails Map' on my old Nuvi 1490 and
it works great, but I loaded it on my new DriveSmart 71 and
only the background shows up with no trails visible .
Is there something I can do to modify this trail map to run it
correctly on my DriveSmart?
I'm new at this.
It should work.
Are there any internal parameters in a DriveSmart that could be switched off that could be causing the problem? The base map looks just fine,just no trails show up.
The developer did a super job on this map, but he is no longer active.
Not sure what a DriveSmart 71 is? I have a DriveSmart 61 and a DriveTrack 71. Anyway, I have also had problems with transparent overlays not showing on newer Garmin automotive units. Here's an old thread about a similar problem that was never resolved.
Thank You Boyd;
My DriveSmart 71ex is just a 7 inch automotive Garmin.
I just loaded up :
''Utah ATV Trails 2016 '' gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/653/
''Moab Trails 2014 Map'' gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/508
Both transparent maps and they came in perfect on my DriveSmart.
When these 'map makers' make a Transparent Overlay,do they all use the same program ,or
are there different choices?
I suppose there are different ways to create transparent maps. The end result should be the same however, a map without a background object and a draw order setting of 31, which means it should display on top of any other map.
Sorry, not familiar with any of those maps or the people who made them. You could try sending a PM to the person who posted the map.
Thanks for the help Boyd. :D
You might be able to make it work by using gmaptool to set the map to transparent and the draw order to 31. It is not necessarily that simple however. Be sure to have a backup copy, you can do a lot of damage with this program if you aren't careful. ;)
Ok; I set Transparency to Transparent
I checked 'Set Draw Priority' and gave it '31' in the box
I take it this modifys the original program with-out having to hit 'SAVE'.
So; It didn't seem to fix the problem.
If you want me to try something else ,let me know.
Sorry, can't think of anything else....
Do you have more than two maps enabled ?
I have just that one map checked off,but I have tried running a second map
with it just to see if it made a difference, and it didn't.
