Mapwel Update
« on: December 03, 2021, 06:52:32 AM »
Some of you me remember that I've been looking for a way to create my own maps to install on my GPS.

Mapwel was suggested, but when I went to the site, it looked like they were no longer in business. I tried their demo, and liked what it could do. So I finally thought I'd try to purchase a license. After all it was only 45 bucks. Low and behold, the purchase process worked and I received my license code.

I don't know what the overall status of the software is, but at least I can generate maps now.

Now prepare yourself for some Mapwel questions. :)

Cool!  8) I was impressed with what I saw of Mapwel and purchased a license myself. But that was somewhere around 2008 and I haven't touched it for over 10 years. In fact, I no longer make Garmin maps at all.

Enjoy your map making adventure. Wish I could be more positive, but I'd be very surprised if you find anyone else around here who uses Mapwel. Even sadder, I fear for the future of GPSFileDepot, the forums are being over-run by spammers. I report the posts, but obviously nobody is minding the store.

I truly hope that Dan cleans this up, this site has been a terrific resource for Garmin users and he deserves all the credit. But the future doesn't look good.  :(

Let's all hope that I am wrong.

Every time I try to start the game it says it needs to update to match the new version. Then it tells me I need to enter my license. When I do I can get in. But when I close the game and start it again, it has to update again and once again asks for the license. It does this over and over
