    I guess i solved the Problem by Myself . I seems that BaseMAp only Works with maps that are produced by Garmin itselft like City Navigator South America NT ect...

    Your Map has MS Flag set to 1 (needs to be 0)
    You need to use Gmaptool.exe to set MS Flag to 0 (Zero)
    Make sure advanced options is set in Options tab
    Open Map in gmaptool
    In Write tab tick set version in header and type 0 in MS
    Press write all
    Recopy Map to device.
    Now it's viewable in BaseCamp

    Default IMGmod.exe

    Drag and Drop file gmappsupp.img or gmapprom.img on to IMGmod.exe
    You can now view the map file using Garmin BaseCamp

    When using IMGmod make sure you have lowercase .img uppercase .IMG gives an error.
    Make sure that you backup the original file first as IMGmod does not ask questions.

    Another way to change the MS flag from 1 to Zero or back, use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Just click the button named 'MS Flag' then 'Yes' on pop-up window 'Do you want to change the MS flag?'. Very easy and instant:

    As easy as falling off a log .....

    Thanks fro the great help.. I can see now the map in BaseMap but only when my Garmin Device is connected. I tried to pull it into Basemap Like a Waypoint , but when I disconnect the Garmin device there is only a standart Globalmap. OR can i solve this with IMGmod ???

    @dasilvarsa Sry i dont understand: "When using IMGmod make sure you have lowercase .img uppercase .IMG gives an error." Just rename gmappsupp.img or gmapprom.img to lowercase.img ?????

    See the map in BaseMap?. You mean BaseCamp i guess.

    You can place the map *.img on an sd or usb stick in a folder named Garmin and BC will still see it even if the exe is not patched.

    The advice with IMGmod is to not have image named as *.IMG [upper case], only as *.img [lower case].
