Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Re: Show on map?
« on: August 01, 2014, 05:58:44 PM »
No, this must be done on the GPSr, and keep in mind that each GPSr has a finite limit to the number of tracks that can be enabled to show on map at any given time.

Google "IMGfromGPX" :)

Call Garmin and explain you have one of the early models with the defective touch screens. In the past, they have replaced them under good will. Be polite and patient. Let us know what happens, please.

GPSr Units / Re: Base camp error reading waypoint, oregon 550

You can open the offending file Garmin/GPX/Waypoints 09 Jan 14.gpx with a text editor or change the suffix to .xml and open it in Internet Explorer to see what information is included. It will be a list of waypoints you saved on 09JAN14.

If they are not important, you can simply delete the file, or, if you need to keep the waypoints, you can create them again using information copied from the offending file and then delete it from the device.

I suspect the waypoints in this file are read just fine by your GPSr, so if you are OK with them not being read by BaseCamp, you can choose to do nothing, which is what I do with several GPX files BaseCamp complains about on my GPSr each time I connect it.

Check the Tutorials link at the top of this page. You will want to use MapSource for your GPSr.


5K Nodes? I can not comprehend a single polyline with that many nodes. I am fairly certain GPSMapEdit will not support such a polyline, at least not if routing is desired.

It sounds like you are wanting to move all nodes in a single polyline together, maintaining their relationship, except for one, which you want to remain in it's original location?

This can be accomplished with the (M) Move tool by selecting all nodes you wish to move with the cursor (draw boxes around them with the cursor while holding ctrl), and then select any one of the selected nodes and move it as you desire, and all selected nodes will follow, while non selected nodes will remain in original position.

You will have to manually reconnect any nodes you wish to be connected after moving the polyline.

It is a multi-step process.

If you use the 'S" Select tool, you can move or rotate the entire polyline. If you use the 'M' Move tool, you can move individual points.

Have you seen the GPSMapEdit Help Page? They have many videos to demonstrate.

Thank you Seldom for the awesome tip on removing excessive routing nodes from polylines. Never occurred to me to change to a non routable type and back again!

I did hear back from the creator of GPSMapEdit, and they have duplicated my issue, and are looking into it.

Thank you Red90.

I tried again by first deleting all routing nodes, saving the map again, and then generating a new routing graph, with identical results.

It appears that GPSMapEdit is actually adding additional routing nodes to each polyline point near existing polyline connections.

I know there is a limit (2.4 meters?) to how close any two routing nodes can be, but does this also apply to any/all polyline shaping points?

Here is a better explanation of the issue I am having:

I can have a map open in GPSMapEdit, perform a map verification, and get zero errors.

Then I run the Create Routing Graph and verify the map again, and GPSMapEdit return hundreds of failures that were not present before running the Route Graph Generation.

It appears that GPSMapEdit is corrupting the map each time it is run.

Here is a visual example:

Yes, Seldom, that is exactly what GPSMapEdit is doing for me! I am aware of the colored squares representing routing nodes, with different colors indicating the number of connections.

I just added several polylines to one of my maps yesterday, some of which were linked to existing polylines, and GPSMapEdit adds the routing nodes to each polyline as I create them.

After adding a dozen or so, I wanted to test them, so I selected one section of a pre-existing polyline as a start point and selected a newly added polyline as an end point, and GPSMapEdit successfully routed old and new lines correctly. I tested in reverse, starting at a new line and ending at old lines, with same results, then only along new lines, and same result.

Update: Just tested the new map on my GPSr, and the new polylines also route properly on the GPSr as well!

I have not performed a new map verification or generated a new routing graph for the current *.img export.

Thank you Seldom, I still have a lot to learn...

I have noticed today, that if I add new transportation polylines to my map, but do not re-generate a new routing graph, when I test the map routing, my new polylines route perfectly.

This leaves me wondering, what is the purpose of generating a routing graph? And when should I do it?
