Quote from: EL34 on August 31, 2011, 11:08:44 AMI am getting nowhere with creating a custom .typ file and having it work as expected in the Oregon 450.I created a simple .typ file in the editor http://ati.land.cz/gps/typdecomp/editor.cgiThe .typ file only defines one thin contour line 0x20 that is used in my topo map. I made the line color red and added some text (topo) so I could tell if the lines were different in the GPSI created a combined .img + .typ file with sendmap20.I loaded the .img file into the Oregon and enabled it. The topo map lines are still white. I loaded the same exact .img file into my Map76cs and the topo lines are red and my text shows up next to all the topo lines.So there is nothing wrong with the .img file.What the heck is the problem with the Oregon?Does it not respond to .typ files?
QuoteI had a similar color problem generating TYP files with cgpsmapper and sending them to my OR300 using Sendmap 2.0.
QuoteAlso, it might help to read the section on TYP files in the cgpsmapper manual

QuoteThis makes no difference one way or the other. The issue has something to do with the way Sendmap creates the gmapsupp.img file and not how it was sent to the device.
