+gcfishguy Posted September 22, 2013 Share Posted September 22, 2013 (edited) This is sort of a spin-off of my other post, but here's the jist of what I'm doing, and what I'm having problems with. I want a LOT of saved tracks on my GPS...I ATV a lot, and have over 1000kms of trails within an hour or so drive. SO... I've been using GPX2IMG to create a transparent layer of tracks..that works A-1. But, I'd like to have a separate img for the trails for (ex) area #1, area #2, etc. I tried the obvious, creating an IMG of area#1 with GPX2IMG, it installs to Basecamp, then I can send it to the Oregon. Then I go rename it on the card so I can repeat the process with area #2.....and then #3, and so on. It sort of works..... What I end up with is each of the renamed IMGs on the card, and the GPS will display ALL the tracks from ALL the IMGs, but (I believe) because GPX2IMG or Basecamp is causing the product ID to be the same for each transparent layer, the Oregon only lists ONE of the GPX2IMG img's in the enable/disable area. (It lists TopoCanada, CN North America, etc just fine but where there should be 3 or 4 GPX2IMG maps, it only 'sees' one product ID so it assumes they're all the same map.) I have tried playing with the names of the GPX files, the mapset name in the options of GPX2IMG, and everything else I can think of. Same result. On the advise of a poster in my other thread, I searched out a tool that could change the Product ID, and found MapSet Toolkit (in conjunction with CGPSMapper). This might work, but it takes my transparent IMG, and makes it non-transparent. I have changed the transparency settings in MapSet Toolkit, and also the priority, no no avail. The img lays over the topo map on the GPS, but the area that the img covers is white, but does have the tracks shown. I have tried allowing it to install the img into basecamp, and pushing it to the GPS from there, and also NOT installing it into Basecamp, and just copying over the IMG but the results are the same each way. Can anyone recommend a tool that will just change the product ID (Or whatever non-unique value is causing the maps to all be seen as one) or maybe point out what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance!!!! <>< Edited September 22, 2013 by gcfishguy Quote Link to comment
