Map Making Support / Sendmap20 from command line
July 02, 2018, 03:29:05 PM
I'm curious if anyone knows if it's possible to set the BaseCamp map name when using the command line to compile a GMAPSUPP.img . I am able to set the map set name with the -m command but the map name in BaseCamp is just map.  I am needing the map set name to carry over to all other map names, except the GMAPSUPP
Map Making Support / Garmin Chip "Splash Screen"
March 05, 2018, 03:30:10 PM
Does anybody know if it's possible to add a message, other than the copyright with the 80 character limit, to a custom Garmin map that would appear on the GPS unit?
So I installed cgpsmapper on a new machine, and it is not recognizing my unlock key. I insert the code and it says that it is accepted, I click OK and then I get a pop-up stating that the code is over a year old and will not be recognized. Attempts to contact Stan haven't yielded any results. This has happened in the past and he has always been very good and getting me a new code right away. Last time it happened, he sent me a code and said that it shouldn't happen again, which it hasn't on that specific machine.
Has anyone else had this issue, and were they able to figure out a work-around?

I recently started a trial of Garmins GPICreator software to make GPI files. I can make them just fine and they display as desired on GPS units, but they're not showing as visible in BaseCamp. When I use the exact same gpx files to make one using POI Loader, they display just fine in BaseCamp and on the GPS units. Garmin developer support is lacking to say the least, as is the documentation that came with GPI_Creator. Has anyone here used this software much, and if so, did you run in to these same issues? Were you able to figure out what the issue was?
Map Making Support / cgpsmapper and Windows 10

Has anyone ran cgpsmapper on Windows 10? And if so, were there any issues? Just wondering whether I'll have any issues if when I upgrade my machine it comes with 10.
Thanks for any feedback you might be able to provide.
Map Making Support / SendMap issues
April 06, 2015, 10:58:42 AM
I've made a map covering the entire state of Alaska. Problem is, SendMap compiles my GMAPSUPP and the .img file is corrupt. It should be around 700Mb but SendMap is only writing about 1Mb to the GMAPSUPP file. I'm guessing it's the area covered perhaps? I can join the .img files with GMap Tool and name the joined file GMAPSUPP.img and it works on the computer I joined them with, but if I bring the chip with the GMAPSUPP.img file on it to another machine the file is corrupted.
Any ideas on what could be causing this issue? I have the state split into 2,309 tiles.
