US States & Counties Boundaries Map
« on: February 25, 2009, 07:33:35 PM »
The overlay works great on my Garmin GPS276C.
Any way to change the color of the county boundary lines?
Thanks

It'd have to be a custom type and I"m not even 100% sure that would work on that map.

If you have something in mind I might be able to try it for you.

I'm not looking to change different boundaries to different colors.
I would like to see all the boundary lines changes to red or blue.
I think this would make them stand out more on the maps.
Does this help? would this make it possible to do?
 Thanks

I'll work on it this week (sorry, 12hr+ shifts so I can't give a more definitive time).

I got the US States and Counties overlay on my nuvi1450 and it shows the county lines.  But it doesn't tell me the names of the counties I am entering.  Any comments?

Oz will have to say for sure.
I expect the source data was Census TIGER state/county polygons.  These were converted to (boundary) lines.  At best you get two lines along the common boundaries (one from each county); which name (county) will display seams to be random.  At worst, the converting program
may scramble the names.

The 1200/1300/1400/1600 series nuvi is pretty notorious for not displaying the names of anything. I spent awhile tweaking my NJ map to look as good as possible on a 1350 and it does not render the map the same as previous model Nuvi's.

Try zooming way in - like 120 feet -  on the boundary lines and maybe you will see a label when browsing the map. Unfortunately, there aren't any settings on the Nuvi to control this sort of thing.
