Map Making Support / Re: Mapset Toolkit, CPreview, indexes, searching
« on: March 28, 2014, 01:53:02 PM »
Cgpsmapper free doesn't support indexed search,  only search near is available.
Try for mkgmap instead.

Thanks, I bought the $30 shareware version with limited POI indexing, but that did not solve the problem.  My buddy has the free version and I can search his maps and get results in BaseCamps for POIs.  Also bought Mapwel Advanced, and that didn't resolve the issue.  Was really disappointed in the contour lines with Mapwel's exported IMG files.  Not nearly as smooth as CGPSmapper.  Not something I could have evaluated in the free version.  Maybe I'll find it useful in some other part of the mapping process. Anyhow..

I went ahead and made my own pv.txt file and tried to run cpreview from the command line outside of MapSetToolKit, but it doesn't generate any output files at all?  From MapSetToolKit, I get the MDX and TBD output files, but they're only 1KB so that indicates to me the POI indexing information is not there.

I'm using GlobalMapper to export the MP files and I'm starting to think the root cause is because of some attribute I might be missing in my source data.  I did add the CountryName, RegionName, and CityName like ToyTruck suggested, but I'm thinking I'm missing something else.  Just not sure.  Pretty frustrating.. :-\

Thanks for the suggestion ToyTruck.  I added those attributes to my POIs in GlobalMapper , populated them, and they show up in my exported MP file.  However I'm still not able to search for them Basecamp. Must be something wrong in my dictionary file or something.  Not able to find the answer in the CGPSMapper manual.  I am able to search and find them on the GPS unit though. I'm just stuck and not sure what else to try.

Attached is my dictionary and exported GlobalMapper MP file if someone could take a look, maybe the answer will pop out to them.  I'd really appreciate it.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I think this is where I need to be.

My custom mapset is not searchable in Basecamp.
I'm using the free CGPSMapper version, and the website states there is no POI Indexing in this version.  My MP files have POIIndex=Y, but I'm wondering if it's just being ignored?

My buddy's custom mapset is searchable, and he said he's using the free version.  Maybe an older version that allowed POI indexing?

Thanks!

Lance
