    Is the map non-NT? If so open the map in GPSMapEdit and decompile it in the polish .mp format. Then lets say with Global Mapper you can create kml/kmz from the .mp. If not...hmm...Print Screen seems the only way...

    What device are you using? OS?

    I'm afraid South Africa Waterways is just NT, you can try with Garmap Southern Africa Topo & Rec. The non NT version of this map is available

    No, just the tool for decompilation is not available in internet. :Animated77: (I like this new smileys)

    What do you want to achieve? Answering this question is very important. ....

    Sorry, for the offtopic. I'm just in this mood. Maybe the answer is very simple.

    NT maps cant be imported in GPSMapEdit , NT maps are protected from editing even if unlocked

    I would like to use the map to create a overlay on google in order for me to pinpoint fishing areas that i can create paths for my fishfinder/ Humminbird. There is no maps on humminbird for South Africa so we have to improvise and make our own. The second thing is I have create a track/path with less than 20000 points in order for it to fit on the fishfinder, is that stealing??

    Answer to previous question is Nuvi 215W

    Excuse me for my comment. Don't understand me wrong. I am just thinking now about other things. Trying to understand the logic in those stupid copyright laws and where is the border. Never mind. That shouldn't be I think.

    Have you tried using Basecamp or Mapsourse with the map? There you can draw tracks/paths/waypoints and see them in GE or just save them in exchange format and view them in GE or in other programs.

    P.P.: Think this topic is better to be in the section "Creating Maps".
