            Re: Which BlueCharts work with Mobile XP (PPC)

            BlueCharts only work korrektly with marine-chartplotters and outdoor-devices with marine-mode.

            All others (nuvi, mobileXT, mobileXP...) have display-errors, like wrong deepness-coloring, wrong symbols of navigation marks etc.

              Problem with Garmin BlueChart install

              I have a Garmin 755T. When I install:

              Garmin BlueChart G2Vision - HXUS039R - Entire Us (v11.00) - Unlocked

              To my SD card and reboot, I have 2 maps labeled HXUS039R in my list of available maps.

              This does not seem right. Any ideas what I am doing wrong if anything?

                It is not wrong, bluecharts have always two entrys - one for the map and one for the marine-services.

                    Bluechats use mapsource to view after installation.
                    G2 vision use homeport to view

                        re: Garmin Bluecharts Issues

                        Split the img file using gmaptool to mapsource install files.
                        A Dos Batch will be created.
                        Find gmaptool in Garmin Tools and Tweaks thread

                              Sibow,

                              The easy way to do that, is to buy - or download - Garmin HomePort (it is like basecamp and mapsource, but for charts)
                              If you insert a pendrive or a SDcard with a directory and archive named \GARMIN\gmapsupp.img (being gmapsupp.img a given name for the chart of your choice), you will be able to see everything on pc, it is very nice.

                              Garmin HomePort v2.0.4.0

                              Code:
                              http://www8.garmin.com/gcdfiles/HomePort_204.exe
                              Code:
