General Discussion / installing OSM routable maps in mapsource
« on: November 26, 2009, 01:41:28 PM »
I have downloaded several regions of the US and installed into mapsourdce using the provided installer. All gop smoothly except there is only 1 entry, OSM routable and its the most recently installed. Is there a way to permit all regions to be viewable (as separate sets) in mapsource? I have been combining wiht Topo and writing to my GPSr mem card, but it would be nice not to have to keep "reinbstalling" the sets.

question 2: is there a way to combine all the .img files using MapSetTpplkit so all the sets appear as a single contiguous set? would I combine all the .img files as individual tiles or only combine the 62340000.img files from each set?

The most recent sets I installed installed as families, whereas the previous vversions installed as products. What is the difference?

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / viewing maps in windows
« on: September 27, 2009, 06:30:43 AM »
Newest member here. I would like to create a mapset that shows roads topo and hiking trails in a certain area. I looked through the tuts for creating maps and  feel comfortable slogging my way through it. Problem is, I do not have a Garmin GPSr. Is there a LEGAL way of viewing the maps from  windows? I'm not necessarailly interested in bringing the maps with me on the trail. Want to use trail info to create a geocaching hitlist along a hikable route.  Is there a way I can overlay trail maps created here in Microsoft Streets and Trips?
