I got the vectorial map app and it seemed more like a "proof of concept" than something I would want to actually use for navigation. Deleted it from my phone so I don't know if it has improved, but it was very bare-bones when I tried it.

I have not really looked at what BobT is doing, but he says his maps work in OruxMaps and Backcountry Navigator. I believe these Android apps use the mbtiles format. So if he offers mbtiles files, Map Plus can also use them.

These maps are not hosted at GPSFileDepot - see: https://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/500/

Why don't you just contact him directly? https://forums.gpsfiledepot.com/index.php?action=profile%3bu=4399

MapPlus will accept downloaded maps but not in Garmin format. To load Garmin maps into any iOS app will need conversion which raises technical and licence issues.

If you had an Android then the Orux app will display Garmin maps but not (IMHO) bery prettily.

Another combination that might be useful is the Vectorial Map app and downloadable OpenAndroMaps (which work on iOS)

There's no reason why you should not run more than one app at the same time to get the result you want.

It does not offer a standard "track up" mode.
I never use it for driving, so the "in-car" compass offset isn't an issue for me.

I just need to know if there is any possible way to see the maps BobT made for WVATV2017 on my iPhone? I do not have a garmin, I use MapMyTracks when out in a new area and I record our trip. Heading to Burning Rock in Oct and would like to be able to find Outlaw trails to get me to Riders Paradise.

I have downloaded Trail Boss and Map Plus on my iPhone, but not sure if they accept downloaded maps

Here's a simple procedure I posted here before.

Connect the GPS to your computer. After a minute or so, it should appear as a USB disk. If not, then there should be a menu on the GPS in the System Settings that controls this behavior.

I will assume you have properly installed your maps on the computer and that they are viewable in Basecamp. Find the Garmin MapInstall program and open it. On my Windows 7 computer it is in Program Files (x86) > Garmin > MapInstall (if using a Mac, it will be in the Applications folder).

MapInstall should open with a window asking to select the device you want to use. It should default to your connected GPS. If not, use the Find Devices button to locate it. Click the Continue button. You should now see a list of available maps that are installed on your computer as well as any maps already installed on the GPS.

Click the map you want to install. You should see a map on the right that indicates the area that it covers. If you don't want to install the full map, click the Advanced/Partial Install button. When you do this, you can zoom in and out and then select only the tiles you want to install. There is a dropdown menu at the bottom of this window that allows you to choose any map on your computer.

If you just want to install the whole map, you don't need to bother with all this, just click the continue button instead of the Advanced button. The window will now show a summary of everything that MapInstall is going to do. If it looks correct, click the install button. Now just wait for it to complete the process. Click the finish button and you're done.


You can also see this tutorial, but it is getting rather out of date: https://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-load-maps-on-my-garmin-gps-unit/

I downloaded a map from this site to my computer. However, I'm too dumb to download (or install) it to my Garmin Montana 610. Help please. Thanks
