Site Support / Re: Map Files won't upload, get error

Very odd but glad it worked out. The file size error normally means the file isn't there or is corrupted.

What GPS? What map? The data is on the GPS not the satellite.

can you take a picture with the snipping tool and attach it?

Seeing that error would tell me which part has an issue.

I use it in Windows 10 currently. Does the BAT file have the correct locations for FW Tools?

I opened it in winrar on Windows (no mac). I'll convert it to a .zip and am uploading a new version for you now. I'll edit this post once its uploaded.

EDIT: The new .zip file is up; try it.

Yes. If it doesn't work install My Trails and you'll be good to go.

Map Making Support / Re: Map making workflow advice please

The workflow is some "extra". I would recommend reading it but then just keep them in QGIS and change the properties there.  Once the properties are changed you can set colors and all that look way way better than Garmin. Additionally, the "print" function actually allows you to build book pages.

So, short of it, read the tutorials to see how QGIS works but don't do the actual "extract" for Garmin. Just use the same concept but set the properties (double click the layer on the layers tab).

I really hate that I can't duplicate this. Even on a fresh install of Windows 10 I've gotten the registry way to work. My issue with the "universal method" is that it locks the data into C:\ which is stupid with SSDs.

Map Making Support / Re: Any way to fix missing contours ?
« on: April 30, 2016, 11:47:05 AM »
What you are seeing is a break in grids. For 1:24k contours the USGS determined the appropriate interval in a 7.5 minute grid (I believe). At the line the contour interval can change.

If you want perfect contours you can download the DEM elevation raw data and generate your own. At that point you'll pick one contour interval for the entire state. The old maps/old tutorial (the data is still there) did it that way; with the contour lines available I choose to accept the "ending of lines" to have a varying contour interval across the state.

Which maps (other than My Trails)? Can you try installing Arizona Topo. It has a slightly different installer method.

If that doesn't work install one of the maps to C:\Garmin\ rather than C:\Program Files

I've been using it for all my 2016 updates and no issues.

Map Making Support / Re: How to delete lines created by cGPSmapper?

the line is not actually from cgpsmapper but rather shp2mp.  its in the raw code. normally changing multi segment to single fixes it

Map Making Support / Re: Questions regarding Part 9 Setup Files
« on: March 27, 2016, 08:25:26 AM »
That is where its supposed to be...

How big is your setup file? Can you attach it or send it to [email protected] ? (perhaps zip the .exe file since otherwise everything in the world will block it).

Open regedit  (start>run>regedit or on windows 10 just hit start then type regedit

Now bury down to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Garmin\Mapsource\Families\Vermont Topo

Is it there? If so, does is have ID as 2B03? Now go on more "folder" (called 1) and make sure BMAP, LOC, and TBD (if you have it) are all pointing at the right location.  This would also be a good time to make sure Vermont Topo isn't the only thing in the families folder.

Let me know the status of that? Are you running Windows 10 64-bit?
