Map Making Support / Re: Make Topo Map Part 2 - Stuck

%contourfolder% is a variable. You set the location of your contour files on the first line:
set contourfolder="C:\your_map_folder\dem\"

Change the C:\your_map_folder\dem\ to whever you put your files.

You don't need the .exe for ogr2ogr in dos. Just make sure the FWTools folder before hand (version is correct). A lot has likely changed since 2016.

Also, you can put the bat file wherever you want; it does't matter. When it runs it goes to the correct folders based on the data set above.

If Garmin express doesn't recognize it its likely you can't load maps on it. Does it show the computer icon when you plug it in?

So... since I'll have to convert my maps and add a "pre-compiled" option to the website.  I take it I just build the img file with MapSource and upload that as pre-compiled?

Sounds like a pretty good plan. That or I should just download each and fix the registry bug if there isn't' a latest version for the same area. In the next couple weeks I'll start hitting each one and testing it.

We have hosted a mirror now to help people get cgpsmapper. https://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tools/cgpsmapper.php

That would be best but most data is already in WGS84/NAD83 which work "out of the box"

Additionally, the nautical data is relatively hard to come by. I tried to add some to my Arizona topo but since most lakes are man made they (the government) were hesitant to provide data since the depth of the lake changed very frequently.

Have you seen these steps? https://forums.gpsfiledepot.com/index.php?topic=4398.0

The maps should not be locked unless you also loaded a map onto the page that you don't have rights to on the GPSr.

You can put maps on other drive and use symbolic links, look for info about mklink command.

Yes I definitely can... but can everyone else (or are you saying build it into the installer)?

There is actually an install script already in existence to work with the gmap; I thought I posted it somewhere before but perhaps it deserves another look.

All that it requires (in Windows anyway) is a shortcut in Garmin's default map directory to the actual location and Basecamp will find the map.
Hmmm to that one.

I started converting over but it seems like it really wants to load it to its directory on the C:\ drive which really is silly in the days of small SSDs for the OS and large hard drives for data (and yes, maps are data).

I just downloaded it. 352mb in <1 minute.  Are you getting it from gpsfiledepot.com or mirror.gpsfiledepot.com? I did the test in Chrome since I don't have Safari (PC).

Map Making Support / Re: cgpsmapper and Windows 10

Hello again, guys. 

I own a copy of cgpsmapper Personal (that I used to make BigDesertSouthwest), and am trying to transfer the license to a new PC.  Alas, the Hardware finger prints don't match, so it won't work, even if the Registration Key is accepted.

Is there any way to get this transferred, and/or what are today's substitutes for a routable cgpsmapper?  Do I need to redo all my batch files for mkgmap?

I just contacted them at cgpsmapper.com and he was able to provide me a new key. Still very receptive.

These are free. Try these first and then if you want "better" buy those.  The largest difference is the Garmin ones will auto-route (turn by turn directions) while 99% of these won't.
