GPSr Units / Re: Questions about SD memory cards
« on: August 08, 2012, 09:14:16 AM »
GPS scans maps which are loaded first time at least to check copy protection. Then it remembers maps even if you swap cards. I think one of factors triggering rescan is creation date inside img. Maybe file save date is considered too, this would explain rescan after copying.

Map Making Support / Re: Abnormal termination of cpreview.
« on: August 04, 2012, 01:26:02 AM »
MapSetToolKit doesn't write into img. It creates input file for cpreview (pv.txt), executes cpreview, executes cgpsmapper to compile preview map and then copies img files to mapset directory.

To create index (*_MDR.IMG) cpreview needs *.img files and *.img.idx files. Both types are created by cgpsmapper when compiling mp source. But only img are copied by MapSetToolKit to mapset directory. If you start creating mapset without *.idx files, you won't get *_MDR.IMG index.

Address search is available in some cGPSmapper versions, like for example cGPSmapper Personal. mkgmap has this function too, but I'm not sure if house number is supported yet.

Edit: I see that Mapwel supports address search too.

GPSr Units / Re: Dakota 20 doesn't allow renamed IMG files on SD card?
« on: August 03, 2012, 02:00:10 AM »
I confirm, that maps with changed names work in Dakota when saved in directory \Garmin on SD. This is the configuration I'm using, 4GB SD card, firmware 5.20.

Check your SD for file system problems like for example spaces in names.

You might consider updating to latest Mapsource 6.16.3, I think it simply ignores problems with wrong map installation and runs anyway.

General Discussion / Re: Trouble loading Philmont maps on 60csx
« on: July 25, 2012, 03:06:39 PM »
Background 4B is not required. But for preview map polygon 4A is required, this is selection area. Without it you can't select map in Mapsource or Mapinstall.

Preview map is named philmont.img, the same as img for device. It looks like author by mistake replaced preview map with full img. You can correct this, using attached  file instead.

Map Making Support / Re: Routing in BaseCamp/MapSource
« on: July 24, 2012, 01:24:28 AM »
You don't need index in Mapsource for map to be routable.

Are you sure, that in your GPS routing is based on your map and not on some other map which is active at the same time?

Is your map transparent? Mapsource doesn't create routes on transparent map, but it works in GPS.

Map Making Support / Re: "Denied car" option in cGPSmapper

Have you compared avoidance settings on both devices? Maybe you have unpaved roads set in Oregon.

Map Making Support / Re: Non-searchable POIs
« on: July 15, 2012, 09:52:32 AM »
cgpsmapper (probably) indexes following POI types:

0x00 - 0x0F

0x2A00 - 0x2A1F
0x2B00 - 0x2B1F
0x2C00 - 0x2C1F
0x2D00 - 0x2D1F
0x2E00 - 0x2E1F
0x2F00 - 0x2F1F
0x3000 - 0x301F

0x6400 - 0x641F
0x6500 - 0x651F
0x6600 - 0x661F
0x6700 - 0x671F

Other POIs can be found using "search near" function.

Thanks, explained precisely.

You might be right, but I can't find any definitive info on Garmin site.

First is that you can't buy Lifetime for 60CSx. Lifetime is only for City Navigator preinstalled in device.

If you own Lifetime for nuvi, than you get up to 4 updates a year. On each update you can select several predefined areas to install on device and/or install full map on PC.

If you have map on PC, then you can select any area and send it to device. Full CN NA prepared on PC is about 1.7GB.

Versions of Mapsource up to 6.13 stored unlock codes in registry. Current Mapsource and BaseCamp store unlock codes in a text file in some user directory.

Mapinstall doesn't check registry for unlock code, would be a problem if you used old Mapsource for unlocking. But this won't unlock for BaseCamp either, so probably it is not your case.

Since unlocking is done for each user, you should run Mapisntall as the same user as when unlocking.

I can imagine some other reasons for Mapinstall to fail, but this would result in map locked for BaseCamp and Mapsource too. I think you should look for the file with unlock codes, on Windows 7 this is:

Verify that this file contains your code. You can use Process Monitor to check, if Mapinstall reads this file:

There is a limit for maximum supported number of TYPs in img file. I think for older devices this is about 10.

Map Making Support / Re: Creating a Junction View File?

I don't think there are any 3-rd party tools to create JCV. It is proprietary format and there is no info about its details.
