This is good news, I have been waiting/hoping for further development of this great tool. It surely makes my life a lot easier and now the risk of scratching arround in the Windows register is also made safer. Thanks Mr Cypherman

Do you have plans to may be make the GenTyp tool more powerful too? I would not mind seeing a tool to edit or decompile Typ files like what was done here.

I started in 5 months during my lost time to adds a reading a TYP binary file in GENtyp. I have several project for this program, but right now, my lack of time to maintain two application at the same time.


I'm very busy with my job at this time.


I will try to make a version at the earliest. I have to finish two new options in MapSetToolKit at the same time as I started;)

Cool man We all have to earn a living first before we can play. It is very good news for me that you still have the desire to further improve these already great tools as and when time allows. This is really all I needed to hear. I am a very patient man anyway and in English there is a saying that goes: "Beggars can't be choosers". My question was not to put pressure on you, I only needed to know. I am satisfied now and very happy!



Thanks

Yes, it will make a very nice looking topo map. Thanks to the steps spelled out on Jackson's site:

By making the map "transparent" it will overlay on the City Select (Navigator) or whatever other map in your unit with very detailed topo.

I am new with this forum and this particular message caught my eye since it is exactly what I am trying to do and even following the steps from Jackson's sight. All steps were going well until I started to add streams, water bodies and roads to the base map. The roads or the water bodies did not match the size of the original map that they were being imported to. (the roads were outside the boundaries of the base map and the water bodies the same)I downloaded the maps from USGS at the same time from the same area. Has anyone else had this problem or am I overlooking something?
I am trying to make a topo of Glacier Nat Park since we will be hiking there this summer. If anyone has a topo of that area they would like to share I would be very appreciative. But I would also like to make my maps when I can establish what is not working.

Hi, could you please help me with this question:

how can I protect a map I make so it may not be copied and used everywere? I mean, put it some sort of key so a license is needed for any new SD card the map is going to be used?

I need to convert a map from .img (garmin) to .nm2 (navitel)

This is beacause I want to develope a map to be used in some devices I will sell, but I dont want my competence to just copy the map files and take all the work I did.

Thanks a lot for your help!

I've been using the posted method for several years to make golf maps. However, I recently developed a web-based tool to streamline the process. You can draw an overlay directly on a Google map. It saves hours of time!

Very nice tool from Dr B. Could it be possible to load in a previous half-finished file so you can save current work and then come back to it later? [Sorry - ignore the question - you mention how to do this in MapEdit]

Just tried using GPS Map Manager on my (new) Windows 7 PC to add a custom map so I can see it in Mapsource. For some reason it doesn't work. Looking at the registry it seems to have added the map - but within Mapsource it doesn't come up as listed. It still works when I do exactly the same thing on my (non Windows 7) laptop.

Any ideas?

Hi Stevepowers

Yip we do have problems with these old .img maps now because they rely on a registry entry and these entries slightly differ in Windows XP, 7 and even 8 now I believe. So this is what I surgest you do:

Use one of the following two tools to convert your old map (.img and .typ file if you used a type file) after installing it with Cypherman1 MapSetToolKit to install it the usual way to generat the files needed for the converter to function correctly. This converter will generate a XXX.gmap folder with some files in it. Uninstall your map using the Cypherman1 MapSetToolKit to remove the register entry safely. Now you can just copy the XXX.gmap folder with files in it made by the Mapconverter to the maps folder where all the new .gmap format maps are usually installed. On my Windows 7 - 64 Bit setup if could be in one of two places:

c:\Users\"Username"\AppData\Garmin\Maps
or
c:\Users\All Users\Garmin\Maps

Please keep in mind that the location of your Maps folder could differ slightly or even would not be there at all, I do not know exactly how you have your Windows, Mapsource and Basemap installed and what PC username you used. Also remember these are usually hidden folders so you need to switch on "Show hidden files, folders and drives" using your file manager under Organize - Folder and search Options. Or at least this is how it works under my Windows 7 installation. I do not like Windows 8 at all, looked at it for about 15min and re-installed my old Windows 7 setup so I can not tell you exactly how it works under Windows 8.


This is where you will find the MapConverters. I used the first one from Garmin:

MapConverter for Windows software version 2.1.1
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3897
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/MapSource_MigratingGarminMapProductsfromWindowstoMacComputers.pdf

or

JaVaWa MapConverter version 1.4
http://www.javawa.nl/mapconverter_en.html
http://www.javawa.nl/download.script/software=JaVaWa%20MapConverter&lang=en

Hope you succeed. Please let me know if this worked for you, I have not completely tested it myself yet but I see no reason why it should not work.

Thanks
SakCyb
