    Default Converting Garmin formats into something editable like .shp?

    Hi,

    Is there a way to get Garmin's either SD .img or Mapsource .mp in an editable format? I.e. to edit the maps? It seems there are plenty of tools to convert in the direction of Garmin format, however am still searching for one that goes in the other direction.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    NT maps can't be converted, this is a dream for all of us.
    There is no public converter for such maps.

    I'm fairly certain .MP aka Polish Text is not a Garmin format. Therefore above does not solve. This is to convert Garmin Mapsource data and/or image files into a common format. Thanks for responding.

    Thanks. Interesting thread, however still looks like the process is completely manual. It looks like alternative is to use GPSMapEdit from geopainting.com. It opens .IMG files directly, however is extremely slow rendering. I supposed it could be exported as an ESRI .shp file, however unsure how much data is retained.

    Even if NT maps are converted into MapSource using cgpsmapper, there is still no way to get at the data?

    cgpsmapper be used only for generate of overview map for MapSource (like product.img). As for map it is used original and not changed source in this case. There is no conversion as fact!
