    @ddabcd277
    ESRI has so called Data Developer Kit to produce encrypted vector (no rater support) map in Teleatlas/NavTeq format. But this software has never been available outside ESRI..
    Pitney Bowes or any other software have nothing close to Garmin MPC 7.. I am pretty confident at it as I search Internet for many month for it. Having Garmin MPC 7 available is rare treat
    The only similar solution which can make encrypted maps is CarryMap by DataEast made as extension to ArcInfo. But you can not lock CarryMap maps to certain hardware ID, that is way I need to bother with MPC 7. Again no solution to bring rasters into Garmin img fro Garmin Mobile PC.
    Cnfhbr earlier mentioned MicroGIS software which claims to produce maps in closed proprietary (i.e. locked) format (mgm extension). My first
    look at the Ukranian forum of MicroGIS developers/users did not gave any good impressions at all. The programmers do not explain the level of vector data security in this mgm format. And do not guarantee that this format will remain encryped in the future.

    Hi, Cnfhbr!
    EasyTrace is nice vectorization software, but it has nothing to do with encryped map formats. As I mentioned
    I want to producу navigation map from combination of vector and raster data and lock this map to certain Hardare ID. I can make such maps for Garmin devices (through the MPC 7, which is kindly posed at noeman), but I also want to run such maps on Laptops and mobile devices through Garmin Mobile PC/XT and Garmin StreetPilot for Iphone.
    Thank you for your suggestions!

    If you like EasyTrace, you can vectorize raster to the DXF or SHP format via this tool, then edit it for example with Global mapper (if necessary) and send prepared data to the MPC for conversion to NT and locking.

    I am sorry, but I do not get your idea. The major problem is that Garmin Mobile PC/XT will NOT render custom (user-defined) maps properly no matter how I produce these maps (via EasyTrace, MapWel or other software). I was hoping that some softeare will produce custom (with user-defined styles of POLYGON areas) maps that will render correctly in Garmin Mobile PC, but it seems that there is no such available..
    EastTrace 7.99 (I believe that you mentioned this particular version) is far less advanced than WiseImage 12 (available at lavteam.net). Anyone using EastTrace 7.99 should definitely switch to WiseImage 12 to get better results with less caffeine.
    Regards.

    Investigate more closely my post #43 above, I suggest that you use the MPC in the final stage!
    You can write me in Russian into PM ...

    Would be a nice program if a patch/***** would be available.
    Since it is pretty much limited to Garmin programs like Global Mapper are required to transform the data to other formats.
    Apart from other limitations of the free version I think the routing function is what users miss most.
    Global Mapper *****s are available and programs to download map sources are available too, even if Mobac now is too limited to be usefull for most users.
    I know it is hard to ask, but to make this prgram complete a ***** or patch is needed to use all functions, otherwise I think there are still better options out there to create your own maps.
