General Discussion / Re: rookie mistakes or something is wrong

I suggest that you try another website for help with this. GPSFileDepot is an archive of free maps that are only compatible with Garmin GPS units so you're not likely to find other users of the Magellan TRX device here.
General Discussion / rookie mistakes or something is wrong
« Last post by Outty71 on March 12, 2018, 04:56:37 PM »
I recently bought a used Magellan TRX7. I updated it. Read the manual. Got a feel for the basics and began downloading files of trails I want to ride that I could not find on the preloaded maps. I've had success with 4 files but none after these.

As I understand, these need to be in GPX format, which I verified. I also verified the files were copied to the SD card and even copied them to a brand new card just to make sure. Imported them per the instructions and the same way I had before, it was quite easy, but this time no luck. I've made a few dozen attempts to import more trails but cannot.

I am downloading these files to my laptop. I have installed a GPX reader app. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm really stumped here. Thank you in advance.

Yes ximage for that device. Newer devices are simpler.

Thank you. 

The link was helpful, but, I have seen these in my 60csx in years past and I can't remember how I got them in there.  Maybe using that "ximage" program?

I don't know what happened to my Garmin stuff since November last, but, I definitely used the red circle and blue circle waypoints in MS and transferred them to my device and then road my motorcycle thousands of miles and saw every one.

Now, when I choose the red circle from either MS or BC and transfer that point to my unit, it comes in as a blue flag (I know what that means.)

I created some waypoints to use in deer hunting, saw them in MS AND saw them in my 60csx AND followed them in the woods.  Now, for some reason, they can't be seen in my 60csx.  The ONLY thing I could have POSSIBLY done different is create new maps on my SD  card and that alone should not change what I had before.  The waypoints on my 60csx do not come from the maps transfered from MS or BC.   I have been doing using these devices for years...some have over 120000 miles on the ODO...just frickin boggles my mind right now.....

Much appreciation to all here for your patience and for sharing your knowledge.  Much appreciation...
Found my Garmin GPS in the shelf along with other truck accessories I had installed in my Taco too. Would like to use it in my F-150. I haven't used this for quite sometime, will I have a hard time installing my own maps?
Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Custom waypoints

Hello, Back in 2013, I made myself some custom waypoints.  Nothing fancy (used in deer hunting....some water, some blood-looking drops, some silly circle with an orange X through it...stuff like that)  I used these in MapSource and can see them now as waypoints when I bring up those old files.  I have the same GPS unit (trusty 60csx) and the only thing different is my map is now 2018.1 instead of 2013.2.  However that may be, I can still see them in my Map Source if I elect to change the symbol. 

I cannot for the life of me remember where I got those symbols into either MapSource or my unit.  I'm pretty sure I learned that technique here as I really go no other places for anything related to my Garmin stuff.

Can you point me in a direction to edit my waypoint symbols?

Thank you!!!!

Different units show different info. It could be map name from img header or MPS subfile, copyright from TRE subfile, license from LBL subfile. Garmin maps in GMP format contain some additional legal warning, which I have never seen presented in GPS.

For cgpsmapper copyright is fixed but you can set own license text. For mkgmap you can set copyright and license. Map names in img can be edited by GMapTool.
