rws Posted November 14, 2006 Share Posted November 14, 2006 (edited) I developed an application to help people to make your own garmin maps. check my application (MapSetToolKit) http://www.box.net/index.php?rm=box_v2_dow...e_id=f_24996652 Application feature: - Make a full Mapset for mapsource (TDB, Global img, reg, TYP) - uninstall Mapset (Product and Families) - Make a TDB file (Product and Families) - Create a reg file for install your new Mapset in mapsource. - Support custum Level and Zoom. - Support TYP file (Next version can compile TYP file) Cypherman Cypherman: Does your application eliminate the need to use GPSMapEdit and cGPSmapper? Do you still have to run the registry each time you create a new custom map? Can you give me more details on how the application works. I've been waiting for someone to come up with one program that will do the entire process of making transparent custom maps that are compatible with Mapsource. Any additional info. will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Ed Yes and no. You make your own maps with GPSmapedit, after your take my application to generate TDB file, reg file (to add mapset in mapsource) and global map. My application use cgpsmapper in background. With my application, any peaple, can make your own maps, because your don't learn to make a pv file and make REG file. Plus, my application convert TDB files make with cgpsmapper (Product TDB) to Families TDB. After this convert, you can use TYP file in mapsource or GPS. In the next version of the application, I will add the compilation of TYP file. a+ Cypherman Cypherman I tried your application...I got everything to work except the custom TYP does not work when map is uploaded to GPSr through Mapsource...it does modify my map in Mapsource but not when I upload to GPSr. To test the TYP and img file I loaded them directly to my GPSr with Sendmap20 and it modifies my map so I know the TYP works in my GPSr...now I need to figure out why it doesn't work whem uploaded through Mapsource. Can you help me figure out what's wrong? Edited November 14, 2006 by rws Quote Link to comment
