    We do not understand! What do you mean under import it into the Mapsource and the original North America 2014.10 Gmap dir and the gmaptoll to split the map? We do all easy - unpack the original Gmap dir to map destination directory for Mapsource, launch Mapsource, select maps and transfer its to SD. Do you do the same action?

    copy gmap folder in:
    (in XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GARMIN\Maps)
    or
    (in Vista, Windows 7 - C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Maps)

    You'll have your map in Mapsource. Nothing to install, nothing to split. Just unlock it if it's not already unlocked.
    Select map tiles you need in Mapsource and send them to device by "send to device" tool tUTU2lu

    I am using old windows phone with the Garmin Mobile XT. Actually, if I used the whole map of North America, it's no problem. I can use the address search. But I just wan to shrink the size the map for several states.

    PS: the points of interest is working for search.

    Use Mapsource or Mapinstall. (Make sure that you have an original .gmap folder, NOT one made with gmaptool) as per posts above.
    Put USB Flash disk in Usb Port on PC.
    Choose tiles.
    Send to Usb thumb drive. (Application will think this is a SD card)
    Copy gmapsupp.img from USB thumb drive to Phone.

    Yes, I was doing the following way. However, I still can not use the address search function in the Garmin Mobile XT.

    now, I re-installed the mapsource and the gmap(dir). It works. I now can use the address search with just sevaral state maps in my mobile phone.

    Still don't know the reason. But, it's great that it work.

    Thanks all for your help!
