I think the "Unknown error" might be a "not enough memory" type of error. I am now trying a different process:

- I am combining all the files except the elevation files to generate intermediate .MP files. This process seems to work OK. I have now generated the MP files where before I got my 'Unknown error'. So we know the "Unknown error" is not because of bizarre data in the GNIS/Transportation/etc files.

- When this is done I will combine the .MP files above with the elevation data to generate the final MP files.

This process will use less memory because when I bring in the elevation data (already split in smaller rectangles) I won't have in memory all the GNIS/Transportation/Water/etc files already loaded.

From what I can see, it looks like GM loads only the files it needs.

Stay tuned...

I took a look around the GM forum and it would appear that most likely that is a memory. I think it tops out at 2gigs in 32bit windows but can use up to 4 gigs in 64bit.

Perhaps look at the coordinates of the pieces missing and and export them from GM via lat/lon bounds to those coordinates?

Working perfect for me :)

Also, is anyone else having issues with GNIS data? It is like the names got changed again or something. I run it and it doesn't seem to download anything and I don't get any output.

First off, thanks for this great program. It has really streamlined how I work with the data.

I have one question. I haven't been able to find an answer searching around. How do you recommend processing the contour shapefiles to eventual processing into polish and then img?
Glad its working for you.  To "finish" it I just follow the tutorial online except that I use Topo Process wherever possible to automate/streamline.  The important steps are 8 and 9: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-create-garmin-topo-maps---part-8---combining-data/
It works a lot cleaner than the batch file I had cobbled together :).

I am running into memory issues with the contours, do you just convert each shape file to an mp file and then combine those all into one? ( I am working on an Oregon map) I guess I am trying to figure out the best way to split it into smaller pieces since I can't really load it all up together easily.

Just an FYI I was getting errors on XP SP2, but this patched version seems to have fixed the problem.
