mjmfgm Posted July 30, 2008 Share Posted July 30, 2008 I am lost; I have been trying to get help for the last 2 weeks and cannot find the answer. I have a shape file for a fishing region which I would like to overlay on to my Garmin GPS. I downloaded Cgpsmapper and MapEdit as well as cypherman MaptoolKit. I found out that I cannot use custom MapEdit and need to create a custom TYP file to use with cGPSMapper. I am not a programmer I am a graphics designer and so not understand how to create these types of file. So I created a MP file with Global Mapper and need to get started from there. 1) Create Type file with polygon 2) Change description to = Fishing Area 1 3) Label Trout 4) Color Blue 5) Area Fill Hatched After the file is created I need to send this file to cGPSMapper to create the Image file. I know how to make the new image file visible in Garmin Mapsource, I do not know how to use SendMap yet ( I think I can figure this one out.). I thank anybody in advance for their help in advance.
