I have been following instructions I've found, but most do not work.

I have downloaded some NOAA charts in .KAP format, and they work nicely in OpenCPN.
I have used NOAA's Reprojector to output them as both .TIF and .BMP, aligned them in GoogleEarth and saved them as .KMZ files, and moved them to the \Garmin\Custom Maps folder on my GPS, but that's where it ends...I never see the maps and they are not in the list to be enabled.

I have downloaded the FLtopo (which is a .EXE file), and that installed and works nicely on my GPS.

At this point instructions seem to get confusing and diverge...

One site says the .KMZ should simply be copied to the \Garmin\Custom Maps folder on the device...which I've tried, but see no results.

Another seems to indicate the BMaP2MP app should be next, but that seems to want only a .BMP file as input (according to how I understand the README_ENG.TXT file), and that file apparently should be made by OziExplorer

The maps I've created seem to load nicely in BaseCamp, and they display when I connect the 78s to the computer and click on the internal storage of the 78s.

...but so far nothing makes them show up on the GPS itself.

Can anyone give me advice?

Thanks, J
