    You've given me too much info, I think, and confused me. I only need help getting latest maps working on my PC in mapsource. I have the latest img file on GPS. I escort the wide loads for a living and creating a route in mapsource is quite important to me.

    1) I do have a working version of mapsource with 2008 maps with the find feature working that came with a working GPS. Could I download City Navigator Australia & New Zealand NT 2014.40 Sensis (or Navteq) from GPSunderground and run this update after installing my working 2008 version and expect everything to work including "Find' with 2014.40 maps loaded?

    Thanks for your time.

    Ian
    I have used cGPSmapper for many years and have never ran into a problem making a mapsource install from a IMG file.

    Here is details on how to use cGPSmapper:
    cGPSmapper - Your Tool For Creating Maps

    You can have as many version as you like in Mapsource using cGPSmapper.

    In regards to 2008 and 2014.40

    I have saved every version on my backup PC.
    All the 2012, 2013 and 2014 maps.
    Each one make a folder so you do not lose any maps.......

    In regards to Tiger he has spelled it out OK I do not understand why you would be confused?

    If you are going to use cGPSmapper be sure you know what you are doing and it will work every time.

      Re: gmapsupp.img import in Mapsource

      I'm new here, just got referred to this forum by a friend. I haven been using a 2610 and later a 2008 BMW Zumo equivalent to the 550. But I never updated the map. Now I seem to need it as so many roads have changed.
      Now I installed the 2014.40 map on a SDcard and it works fine. But how do I get this new map on my Mac. I found several tutorials for Windows, on this forum too, but not for the Mac (OSX10.9.2) running Basecamp 4.2.4. Can someone help me with this?

          Guys, thanks for all the info provided in this thread, but I believe I'm experiencing the same problem as many I read have.
          Blank map.
          Depending on the Map Detail scale and the Zoom level, the map blanks.
          Best I can do is with "Max details" and "zoom 100km"
          I followed all the tutorials and map (City Navigator Europe NT 2014.40) installed flwalessly on to Mapsource, but I still can't get the overall picture.
          Didn't I read something that fixes this problem?

            I can keep going closer.

            Have you done a search?
            then
            location
            and pick a city.

            What happens then?

            Please post your screen shot...

              No Aspirin, my problem is I can not zoom out of the 100km range.
              If I select, say, 150/200...km, the map would blank.
              Can only see the map area squares (yellow border) but no image.

                Because of the name of the thread, I'm assuming that you've reverse-engineered an image file using cgpsmapper in GMapTool. If so you will lose the map detail zooming out.

                That's a normal situation with simple preview maps and also can be observed in 3rd party maps made with cgpsmapper installed by install.bat method.

                It doesn't happen with Garmin supplied PC install versions though, you should be able to zoom all the way out to 3000km with them..

                  Hi Surething
                  I'm new to Gramin and working on topo maps for my edge800 and found these version of Belux Topo Pro:
                  1) Map Source Data Locked: Original Installer
                  2) Map Source Data Locked: Not need install
                  3) Map Source Data UnLocked: Not need install
                  4) Image Locked + SQL:
                  5) Image UnLocked + SQL:
                  6) unlocked gmap folder
                  7) unlocked img file

                  A) Can you tell me which one would be the one working with BaseCamp on my PC to make routes on the PC and than sync everything with the edge?
                  B) Is 1) the one what you call: "...Garmin supplied PC install versions..."

                  Thank's
