OSM map: Sorry for the low quality. Had to adjust memory size.
So, this is with the City Navigator maps. Likewise, I have an OSM map that I used and it showed the Topographic lines on it.
About time!! Got it to work finally. :D
So, after I was using GMapTool, I was able to get it. There is one slight glitch that I have, but at this point, I'm not going to try to fix it. Maybe on down the road when I have more time.
So, what's wrong though is that when you zoom out far enough, the contour lines disappear. But, even when going fast down the road (let's say an interstate, it will zoom out slightly,) it's still going to show it. I'll attach some pictures of what I'm talking about in another post.
Pretty much all that was needed was to just use Gmaptool for this. Thanks for the help Boyd! I really appreciate it! If you would like for me to go in depth about what needs to be done, I could, but I would need your permission, as it is the Gpsfiledepot's policy to not discuss the modifying of other's work.
I can't seem to find the "draw priority"  category that you are talking about. Is "Draw Order" and "Draw Priority" the same thing?
I have been able to show both the Topo contours and the City Navigator maps at the same time like how I'm trying to do. But, for the life of me, I don't know what kind of things I fiddled with to actually make it work. I'm trying to somehow do it again.
I'll try fiddeling around and seeing what I could do about that. Maybe within the/next week. But just to help the solution come about quicker, what is the, "background object" that you spoke about? Would that be a specific polygon or polyline in the TYP file? How would I access information about this object?
Hello. I'm trying to get my Garmin Drive 5 to display topographic lines while also allowing me to use the City Navigator (and other maps) that comes with the GPS. I would like to use the TYP file to make all of the roads and everything transparent, so that only the topographic lines appear. When I try to make everything in the TYP file transparent except the contour lines themselves, a gray background appears and blocks the view of the other maps on the device. I tried editing the polygon 0x4b, (which I believe is the background polygon or something of that degree,) but nothing happened. I've tried using GMapTools, but that still didn't do anything. It seems that the topographic map has the highest priority to be displayed. Any suggestions?
Just a quick question, I've been looking at a few maps on the site here and was interested in the Colorado Topographic map. I was wondering if there was a way I could change the pattern and color of the contour lines, by editing the .TYP file. I tried looking at the .TYP through TYPWiz 5, and it looked like there wasn't any correlation to the contour lines from this file. I've been wanting to change the contour lines to a different style, possibly change it so at a certain elevation add a green color for mountains and to change the contour line's color. Is there some way through this that anyone knows of and could offer some help?
General Discussion / Colorado Raster Map?
October 26, 2017, 01:50:19 PM
So, I was looking on the internet for a while and never really saw any raster maps for Colorado. I was wondering if there was one somewhere around somewhere. Does anyone know where I could get a raster map? (that isn't the whole Bird's eye subscription from Garmin.) I have a Garmin Drive 5 lm.
