Sorry for being late to the party, but FWIW a few years ago I followed the tutorial, first to make a complete state map; ran into a few problems and then realized I could get what I wanted by making a trail overlay. I followed the tutorial again, leaving out a lot of steps and making a few adjustments to turn it into an overlay. Works well. The tutorial requires a real commitment but I learned a lot.

Just got hit with this. Any idea where to find older versions of BaseCamp/MapInstall? Other solutions?

Thanks very much for recommending TYPViewer, popei!

Apparently MapsetToolkit/cgpsmapper was not compiling the file properly. With TYPViewer I was able to make the needed changes very easily.


Using The Maps/Garmin Software / FontStyle= for lines in .TYP file

Hi, folks,

First a little background since this is my first post. I'm a noob at making Garmin maps. A couple weeks ago I worked my way through the fantastic tutorial and got a usable product, even though I ignored some error messages along the way, messed up a couple things, and will do some things differently next time.

I realized that I could meet about 75% of my objectives if I made an overlay out of some GPX tracks, so I've been playing with that (the iterations go a lot faster than for a whole map!).

My main problem is the labels for the tracks/trails. The names are arbitrary and don't mean a whole lot so I don't wan them to display. I thought that FontStyle=NoLabel in my .TYP file should do that but I can't get it to take any effect, even trying out the other values. I'm looking at the map in BaseCamp and on an eTrex 20.

Here's the file in its entirety minus some comments I removed for brevity:


;for Polygons

;String3=0x03,Bebouwde kom
;Xpm="0 0 2 0"
;"! c #DCDCDC"
;"  c none"

; options to style the line
;can be one of NoLabel, SmallFont, NormalFont, LargeFont.
Xpm="0 0 1 0"
"a  c #008000"

; options to style the POI

Has anybody gotten FontStyle= to work? Is there some other way to get rid of the labels?
