GPSr Units / Dakota 20 Custom maps
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:23:28 PM »
So I've run into an issue with my previously owned Dakota20.

I've downloaded various state level maps to base camp, and it can upload them to Dakota.
Problem is that the dakota doesn't "see" them with the normal names. i.e. cotopo11.img. IF I rename the map to say gmapsupp.img then it will see it. Additionally the unit came with a bunch of other .img files which are a string of numbers, again if I rename the file to one of those EXACT number strings, it will see those maps. However this limits me to only "filenames" I have ~10 or so, and I'm trying to load the whole US on the 16gb SD card (plenty of room, just run out of filenames)

From my understanding it "should" be able to read any filename and just load it.
I've looked at the system XML file and it "looks" like it will read img files.

Also there is cgpsmapper file/map, which I understand is an older program for loading files onto the dakota. Maybe this is causing the issue?

I've got the version 5.8 software on it and GPS software 5.0

I tried clearing/updating it when I got it but it has the CGSmapper stuff in the "about" section as well as bizarely named maps from the UK when the unit is recognized in basecamp.

If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.
