Hi All,

I have a custom map that I'm using in our area that works fine in my garmin device.

Recently, I replace my computer with a new one since my old computer is getting super slow.

With my new computer, I install again my GPSMapEdit Shareware Version & cGPSmapper Commercial Routable Version.

Everything looks fine until when I open MapsetToolKit.  When I tried to install my map, I got an error message "Cannot insert a Mapset in Mapsource". 

I tried to restart my computer, double check my REG file but I can't see any different with my previous process where my maps was installed perfectly on my GPS device.  I even tried to run mapsettoolkit with admin rights but error message "cannot insert a Mapset in Mapsource" keep poping up and no maps was installed and no maps can be seen in mapsource/basecamp.

pls help
Hi all,

I would like to know if it's possible to send my locked map thru email.

I know the GPS ID of the device and I were able to create unlocked key (25 digit number) but I can't upload the map using BaseCamp/MapSource since GPS Device is not connected to the computer.

Also, could someone help me to load locked map to SD Card.  I know my SD Card Serial Number but I cant create UNL file which I dont know how & what to do with this file & how to load the map in SD Card.

Many thanks,

Hello all,

I have an MP files.  At first, I compile it using cGPSmapper (Routable Commercial Version with locking) and in my header I put option Lock=N. 
I successfully compile it, able to create mapset & successfully installed it on my Garmin Device.  All functionality is working: Routing, Find Address, POI, Map preview, etc.  I even able to try using it while driving and everything works fine.

Now, I switch the option Lock=Y.  Run the cGPSmapperKey to generate unlock key code. I compile it, create mapset & install it on my garmin device.

When I tried to do the same process as Lock=N (the only different is I have to include gmt.exe in MapSetToolKit - required then add key in basecamp ). I got an error message "Map data is not available"

Then I tried to install the Map using sendMap but gmapsupp.img cant find by my GPS device.


Could please help me to install the map ( I created using GPSMapEdit 2.1.

What I did is I convert the polish format file ( using CGPSMapper v0092 to IMG file (gmapsupp.img).
After that, I used GMaptool v. (using cmd: gmt –S –f 1684,1 –m "GuamMap2015" gmapsupp.img) and I were able to get the following file:
1.   19830710.img
3.   Mapset00.tdb
4.   Mapset00.mdx

Then, I used Mapsettoolkit v1.77 to install map in mapsource and I were able to get the following files:
1.   GuamMap2015.img
2.   GuamMap2015.mdx
4.   GuamMap2015.reg
5.   GuamMap2015.tdb

The problem, I was not able to see the map in Mapsettoolkit (under "Mapset installed" box),  so it seems that the map wasn't uploaded correctly in Garmin MapSource 6.16.3.  I even tried to install maps in Garmin BaseCamp.  The device was found (Nuvi 40) but there a message "No unlocked maps were found for this device".

I also tried to copy the different IMG files (19830710.img, GuamMap2015.img, & gmapsupp.img) one by one directly to my Garmin device but there's an error message "map data is not available" when I I tried to click on "Where To" then "Address" in my garmin device.   Though I could see the map when I tried to click on "View Map" in our Garmin device, even the Point of Interest (POI).

If I need to buy program or anything that I need to do in order to solve my problem, I am more than willing to do so.

Please help.

Thank you in advance,
