Map Making Support / Quastion about Map Limits of Garmin Units
« on: August 13, 2008, 06:31:09 AM »
I am loading multiple custom maps into my Garmin with multiple tilesets.  Either a particular custom map or the loading of so many maps is causing some maps not to display correctly.

What are other people's experience with the number of maps that can be loaded.  My unit is a Garmin 60Cx.

Aslo, my custom maps' tilesets not appear as distinct selections.  This may be caused by the mapset name that they all share (see other post for problem that I am having naming my custom mapsets) or it could be limits with my unit.  The AZ topo and other custom maps from others doesn't have this problem.

Map Making Support / Question about "Area" in Mapsource
« on: August 13, 2008, 06:26:21 AM »
When I create my maps using MapEdit and Maptoolkit the resulting Mapsource map are titled by default to "map area".  How can I change this?

Example: AZ Springs H-12   map area
               AZ Springs I -11  map area
               AZ Springs I-10   map area

I am not sure but I think this is referenced in the cgpsmapper documentation as the mapset name.

Thanks for all the info.  I appreciate you looking into the Arizona Topo.

I am going on vacation for a week, but when I get back I will post a file on my website (http://members.cox.net/klaporte/dp_map.html) with better trail data for Sabino Canyon, Saguaro National Park and Redington Pass.  I will also be posting my other Mapsource maps.  Thanks again.

I have three items:

1)  SMorris identified a shifting of the data in the Southern half of the ArizonaTopo.  I too observe the same issue; If you select Broadway in Tucson it is approximately 73 feet due south of the location that Garmin Navigator 2009 and my GPS reports it.  I was wondering if there has been any headway in correcting this.

2) I have GPS tracks and routes data for all the trails in the mountain ranges around Tucson.  I would be happy to share them with GPSDepot or SMorris.  I have already created a Mapsource enabled package of imgs, but I would love to learn how to create a redistributable install or have you add them into ArizonaTopo.  I started the project of mapping the trails about 7 years ago so I am in the process of using more accurate tools to improve them. Some I admit are 10-50 feet off, but the trailset is very comprehensive.   Let me know if you are interested.

3)  I also have created some interesting other packages - Using government redistributed shape files, I have created maps that display all the geological zones of Arizona (non transparent, descriptive marker), Coronado National Forest Fires historical fires (non transparent, descriptive marker with name, year), geological faults (transparent, unmarked) of Arizona, and mines (transparent, descriptive marker of name, type) of Arizona.  I use all of them on my 60Cx along with your ArizonaTopo.  I am considering adding climatic information into a dataset. Let me know if you are interested.
