Map Making Support / Re: Incorporate tracks in map
« on: June 16, 2018, 10:22:10 AM »
My friends all have Garmin hand-held devices, 60cxs, 78s, Montanas.  I am very familiar with making tracks and routes using MapSource and Basecamp and navigating.  The problem is that some of my friends are no so adept and they prefer having a basemap with the tracks embedded in the map so that they don't have to hassle with turning tracks on and off and selecting colors, etc.  I know it can be done because GPSKevin does it all the time.  I just want to learn how to do it myself.  And I want to be able to customize the width and color of the track.  I know how to make tracks, export to a gpx file and use GPX2IMG to make a map, but that just produces a blank base map with nothing but the tracks.  I also know how to edit TYP files using TYPWIZ5, but that doesn't help me if the track isn't already on the map as a coded element.

Map Making Support / Incorporate tracks in map
« on: June 15, 2018, 05:41:37 PM »
I know there's a way to do this, but I haven't been able to find the instructions anywhere, so I would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.  For some navigationally challenged friends, I want to create a custom Garmin map that has wide, highly visible tracks incorporated into the base map.  Someone give me a clue, please.

Map Making Support / SD card to PC, searchable?
« on: February 24, 2018, 09:25:21 PM »
I have converted a lot of SD-card maps to PC maps using GMapTool, MapSetTookit, and cGPSMapper.  Everything transfers, except the resulting map is not searchable, except locally.  I managed to score a copy of the commercial version of cGPSMapper, which is supposed to support indexing.  However, I cannot figure out what I am supposed to do to create a searchable map.  Suggestions, anyone?
