But I arrived at the inescapable conclusion that you need to use Windows if you want to do any serious mapmaking.

This is my feeling on this as well.. Although I use a mac for all my day-to-day computer work, a PC has far better tools than mac for working with a GPS. (Although Garmin is getting a little better with mac support than years ago, third party tools are nowhere near the same).

So a mac version of gpx2img might happen someday, but i wouldn't hold my breath..

Can you even get the dll anymore since he stopped doing all the commercial versions?
Perhaps not.. I purchased the DLL years ago when I started gpx2img as just a personal project to be used among a few friends. A future version of gpx2img will someday no longer rely on cgpsmapper though.

If it supported routing it would be REALLY interesting.
Its being looked into as a 'someday' project.. Right now it would either require a very expensive version of the cgpsmapper DLL I use to create the IMG files or for me it implement IMG file creation myself based on some documentation out there/other open source projects. So I'm not making any guarantees, but it is being looked at..
Hi all,

I'd like to let you all know that this morning I have released version 1.0 of gpx2img (!

gpx2img is designed to allow simple conversion of gpx files into Garmin compatible IMG files. Rather than the free applications out there which require 10-15 steps and a lot of file editing and a few different applications, gpx2img allows you to convert your gpx files in just 2 steps! Step 1: Open your gpx files (can load multiple files at once) in gpx2img. Step 2) Click the "Convert" button!


  • creates transparent maps which can be loaded on top of other map products such as topo or city, etc.
  • allows editing of waypoints and tracks to change names and types
  • allows creation of waypoints
  • supports TYP files for creating maps with custom track colors/widths
  • allows setting zoom levels of maps
  • many other features

gpx2img is available as a demo from my website ( The demo places restrictions in that it only allows 2 gpx files to be loaded at one time, forces a wait of 15 seconds before conversion is done and places a watermark 'city' on created maps.

gpx2img is available for $20USD, but from now until Sept 23, by purchasing through the 'buy' page on the website, you will save $7USD off your order.

If you have any questions, issues or suggestions, let me know either by replying to this post of emailing me at [email protected]
