    Viewing .img files in Mapsource

    Can anyone tell me how to view or place .img files into Mapsource. I have downloaded the special Edition Mapsource application (6.15.5) but still cannot see the image files I have put in c:\garmin.

    Thanks

    Re: Viewing .img files in Mapsource

    Garmin gmap****.img files may bee used with Garmin BaseCamp. If it's marine charts they can be seen in Garmin HomePort. This works for most pre-built gmapsupp.img files that's having the MS flag set to 0.
    One may also use Garmin Mobile PC to view a IMG map on a PC.

    If it's for some specific reason you want to use MapSource you can make a MapSource install kit of a gmapsupp.img file. The reverse engineering process can be done by using GMapTool and cGPSmapper or MapToolKit. The drawback is that you loose the search index in MapSource and the map is more or less worthless to transfer to a GPS from that MapSource build.
    Another way is to install Garmin Trip & Waypoint manager and substitute the "C:\Garmin\TRIPWPT5\TRIPWPT5.img" file. Make a backup of the original TRIPWPT5.img file and rename your gmapsupp.img file to TRIPWPT5.img in the correct path. This is also just for PC browsing.


    MapSource should by default be used with genuine MapSource maps with full installation kit for MapSource.

    Re: Viewing .img files in Mapsource

    Hi

    I followed the process mentioned above using gmap tool but cannot see the map even though the file shows in Mapsource. Any ideas?

    Ok managed to sort it out.

    Re: Viewing .img files in Mapsource

    Trying to get the Topo 24K Mid-Atlantic into either Mapsource or Basecamp so I can eventually move parts of it to my 60Csx.

    I followed the following instructions:

    "Converting an img to mapsource
    1. Run the GMapTool.exe
    2. Hit "Add Files" and add the "gmapprom.img" file
    2.5. Under the "options" tab tell it the location of cgpsmapper.exe
    3. Click on "Split" at the top.
    4. Select the directory where you want to save it
    5. Make sure that "Create" is set to "files for mapsource"
    6. Make sure there is a tick in "compile map preview"
    7. Mapset name is "CN AUS & NZ NT 2010.10"
    8. Tick "set mapset FID"
    9. FID is 2006 and PID is 1
    10. Click on "split all".
    11. Wait until it is done, should take a couple of minutes.
    12. Close GmapTool.exe
    13. Open the directory from step 4.
    14. Locate install.bat and run it."

    I ran the install.bat as administrator on Win 7 64bit and it reports as successful but nothing is showing in either Mapsource or Basecamp.

    I have tried starting with both the locked and unlocked .img with the same result.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi

    I did the same process, split OK for CNNA 2011.2 but when I am trying to install I get an error message writing to registry, Access denied.
    Iam using GMaptool ver. 0.5.5 and the free version of cgpsmapper, my OS is win7 64 bits.
    Any idea of what is wrong?
    Thanks

    Re: "Gmapsupp.img" to Mapsource

    In option click experimental.

    Just fill the directory and the mapset name.

    Other details all leave blank - auto created.

    Try again.

    Make sure your mapsource is patched.
    If not find patch in open tools and tweaks
