Map Making Support / CGPSmapper Error?
December 14, 2023, 07:09:50 AM
I have a .MP file that was generated with Globalmapper. When I try to use cGPSMapper to convert it to a .IMG file I get the following error.

"Error E032: Layer 0 of the map cannot be empty"

Any help or insight on this?

Thank you
Map Making Support / Map colors on GPS device

Map colors on GPS device.

I'm using Mapwell to make some maps to upload to my Drivetrack 70.

It seems like no matter what color I set up in Mapwell, The drivetrack ignores it and assigns its own color.

Does anyone have any tips on how to get chosen colors to upload and display on the device correctly?

Map Making Support / Aerial images

Is there a source out in the internet world for aerial images that can be incorporated into map making software?

I'm using Mapwel, and my end goal is to make IMG files that can be loaded into my Garmin devices.

I've been using Garmins Birdseye, but that product has been mostly discontinued.
Map Making Support / Base Map Source?

Are there any sources for state level base maps to build my custom maps on?

Most maps I see have a base map of the state with roads, lakes, rivers.... Are any of these available for download?
Map Making Support / Mapwel Update

Some of you me remember that I've been looking for a way to create my own maps to install on my GPS.

Mapwel was suggested, but when I went to the site, it looked like they were no longer in business. I tried their demo, and liked what it could do. So I finally thought I'd try to purchase a license. After all it was only 45 bucks. Low and behold, the purchase process worked and I received my license code.

I don't know what the overall status of the software is, but at least I can generate maps now.

Now prepare yourself for some Mapwel questions. :)
Map Making Support / .MP to .IMG conversion error
June 29, 2021, 10:41:25 AM
I am trying my hand at making image files using GPSMapEdit.

I save my file as a Polish Map format, then use the export function that uses cgpsmapper, and this is the error that I am getting.

In a previous post I was asking for help in how to create .IMG files.

Thanks for all the input from everyone.

It seems the best option for me is to buy a license to Global Mapper, save the file in the Polish Map format, then convert the MP file to IMG using cgpsmapper or mkgmap.

Could someone give me the cliff note version of how / how well that conversion works?

Map Making Support / Garmin .img maps

How do you make the Garmin .img maps?

Are there any software out there free or $$ that will do this?

Primarily want to start with Google Earth KMZ / KML files and end up with a Garmin .img file.
