    Thumbs up US Inland Detail Map with Imagery will NOT show detailed maps in MapSource

    Looking into the details in the map tiles for "US Inland Detail Map with Imagery" gives that there's just a lot of imagery/bitmap data. Not very well suited for MapSource.

    File: J:/Garmin/gmapprom.img, length 1692663808
    Header: 24.01.2008 05:05:14, DSKIMG, xor 00h, Ms 0

    It's possible to create a preview map for MapSource but it should have special more targeted settings for N/S & E/W. But that is anyway rather meaningless since there will not be any detailed maps when you zoom in.

    The reverse engineering of gmap****.img to MapSource is more or less obsolete now when BaseCamp can read *.img files directly from removable media. Putting the "gmapprom.img" for "US Inland Detail Map with Imagery" on a USB stick in the Garmin folder works rather fine. At some zoom levels there's a mixture of picture data and map vector data.

    The version of "US Inland Detail Map with Imagery" I have doesn't show up in HomePort, only in BaseCamp. I first tried with HomePort since it's supposed to be a marine map file.

    Oregon 400i pre-installed map:

    @inspktr: Do you have some updated map for your Oregon 400i? Assumed it was the standard pre-installed map for the Oregon 400i mentioned in post #1.

    I am using a marine map instead of US as I use the great lakes area.
    Thanks for your help.
