    Re: gmapsupp.img import in Mapsource

    problems with install.bat

    I had to manually enter the registry files in the "Wow6432Node" tree, manually entering them exactly as the install.bat had done. If you are not familiar with using Regedit and somewhat familiar with the registry directory, I would be very careful.

    The registry problem only occurred after the maps were made and I ran the install.bat. It installs the new registry files in the tree "software/garmin/mapsource" which is for 32 bit.

    If you have installed other maps with the std. install say Europe 2013.10 you can see in the registory where it put the info for Windows 7 64 bit.

    Here is an example:
    echo off
    echo -
    echo -
    echo - This batch will install map for Mapsource
    echo -
    echo - Map: "XYZ"
    echo - FID: 800
    echo - PID: 1
    echo -
    echo - Press Enter to continue or Ctrl-C to abort.
    echo -
    pause

    if exist "%~dp0mapset.img" goto :INSTREG
    echo Compiling preview map.
    if not exist "C:/Program Files/cGPSmapper/cgpsmapper.exe" goto :COMPPATH
    "C:/Program Files/cGPSmapper/cgpsmapper.exe" "mapset.mp"
    goto TESTMAP
    :COMPPATH
    cgpsmapper "mapset.mp"
    :TESTMAP
    if exist "%~dp0mapset.img" goto :INSTREG
    echo File missing: mapset.img, aborting install.
    pause
    exit 1

    :INSTREG
    echo Adding registry keys.

    set KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Garmin\MapSource
    if %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == AMD64 goto key_ok
    set KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Garmin\MapSource
    :key_ok

    reg ADD %KEY%\Families\FAMILY_XYZ /v ID /t REG_BINARY /d 2003 /f
    reg ADD %KEY%\Families\FAMILY_XYZ /v TYP /t REG_SZ /d "%~dp0AnaDigit.TYP" /f
    reg ADD %KEY%\Families\FAMILY_XYZ\1 /v Loc /t REG_SZ /d "%~dp0\" /f
    reg ADD %KEY%\Families\FAMILY_XYZ\1 /v Bmap /t REG_SZ /d "%~dp0mapset.img" /f
    reg ADD %KEY%\Families\FAMILY_XYZ\1 /v Tdb /t REG_SZ /d "%~dp0mapset.tdb" /f
    pause
    exit 0



    Then check the registry and it should be here

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Garmin\Map Source\Families\FAMILY_XYZ

    Hope this helps

    Re: "Gmapsupp.img" to Mapsource 2012.40

    Hi Guys,

    first post on the forum, brilliant! :-)

    I splitted the map and was able to get it into mapsource.
    Thing now is that the map (City Navigator North America NT 2013.20), is quite white, all white to be exact.

    Can anyone point me out what I'm doing wrong?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Re: "Gmapsupp.img" to Mapsource 2012.40

    Can someone help me please.

    I tried this method of splitting maps/install bat etc and successfully got the map into Mapsource; BUT...

    1) I cannot use the "Find Places" with any of the maps that are split. It is GREYED/GRAYED out.
    2) Also I cannot view the maps unless below "15 miles" on mapsource. If I view above it then just no maps seen.

    I have a patched version of mapsource and have had the option of finding places in the past but only installing maps via the setup.exe or *.msi install methods. Never thru splitting maps.

    HELP.

    When you split an IMG to go into mapsource and then try to create mapsets with mapsource the searches will not work, that's just the way it is. Data is lost in the translation. It is discussed many times in this forum.

    To fix... Just get the correct mapsource input files (the "gmap" directory), copy them to the correct place on the PC and all will work.

    "Card Locked" ? Unclear what that message actually means. First check that your SD card is not physically locked (a little switch on the side of the SD). The 421 may be trying to write to the card and can't

    The other possibiliy... your gmapsupp.img is locked.
    1. download the "GImgUnlock.exe" tool to your PC.
    2. just drag your gmapsupp.img onto the "GImgUnlock.exe" icon
    3. you gmapsupp.img will then be unlocked and should now work.
