    MapSelect : a new program to select maps in your Garmin or storage card

    MapSelect : a new program to select maps in your Garmin or storage card

    Summary
    'MapSelect' is nice program that allows you to use multiple maps on your Garmin device or on your storage card.
    The number of valid maps is determined by your Garmin, so you can't use more maps simultaneously, but it allows you to easily select from a number of maps on your device or storage card.


    Description
    One problem with Garmin devices is that very few filenames are accepted as valid map names. Normally MapSource creates a map called 'gmapsupp.img'. Also unlocked maps are also mainly offered under the same name.
    A good example: on a N�vi device with storage card of 4G, only one map will be found: 'gmapsupp.img'! Internally also the mapsnames gmapprom.img and gmapprom1.img are allowed.


    I wanted more maps available on my Garmin, but also an easy way to select them. So, I wrote a PC program that makes it easy to select from up to ten maps on a Garmin device and storage card.
    The trick now is to give your maps names that are a bit different such as gmapsupa.img, gmapsupb.img etc. Then the program 'MapSelect' allows you to rename them to maps that Garmin sees as valid.





    As a bonus, the program can edit the map name embedded in the file!


    The rar file contains the program plus a document with detailed description how to use it....
