Attn. John M.
« on: March 25, 2009, 09:06:36 AM »
Hey John, I am told you made the NW and SW Topo maps. I posted a message, regarding this, earlier, but have not received any solutions yet. When I download NW topo, it works in mapsource, but when I install SW topo, it never shows up. If I remove (uninstall) NW topo, SW shows up. They basically won't work together. It was suggested that the ID tags may have been the same for both maps. I was wondering if this could be fixed. Forgive me my persistance, but I am going on a long trip soon, and using both of these maps on mapsource would be quite invaluable. If you or anyone could help I would appreciate it.

These maps are the best. I bought garmin topo and am selling it because I find these better. If anyone wants to buy TOPO US 2008, I have one for sale.

While waiting for John to reply, I am currently attempting to recreate the map with another ID, Once I am done, I will test it and upload it.

Once I have uploaded the new map, Oz can replace the existing map with the new one.

only two files will be needed for the id change, the .tdb and .img file that is the index (unless you create the installer then you gotta do it all).

Done and uploaded. Please verify. I have looked at it personally and it looks ok and installs fine along with NorthWest USA. Once we have confirmation, oz can then replace the original file with this one.

Oz,

If you cannot find it in the backup, I can upload it again.

Hello

Thank You for fixing my error. Saw the message just in time to not make the error on the MidWest Map.  Have been busy with getting ready to move to Portland OR.  On Tuesday will leave for 2 weeks of on the road map testing by driving from Orlando FL to Portland OR.  Any body have contacts to talk to about GIS jobs in Portland.

John
