Should this show up in Map Info? How does one know that these maps are being recognized? I put the IMG file and the UNL file in the Garmin folder on an external memory card with GMAPSUPP.IMG (which is recognized).
Are you saying I should create a 'Map' folder under the 'Garmin' folder for the CityXplorer.img and CityXplorer.unl files? At the moment, they're in the 'Garmin' folder of an SD card which had only GMAPSUPP.IMG prior to adding these. The GMAPSUPP.IMG maps show up in MAP INFO. CityXplorer doesn't.
How will I know the CityXplorer maps are being recognized by the Nuvi? At the moment, I don't see any sign of anything new or changed.
255 is not in the list of CXs compatible devices, read my thread please
"Map" folder works in new devices like
if you read with care my previous post and the thread I linked ,you'd understand it perfectly-
I created a new .UNL file just in case, and moved the .IMG and .UNL to the Nuvi's main memory, but it still doesn't show up as stated in your post:
Can other devices support a CX map?
Yes but it will show as a normal City Navigator map part, showing just the Map and POIs-
It does NOT show up as a normal City Navigator map part.
I got the 1450 so it has the enhanced pedestrian mode. I followed the instructions and within the gps it shows that cityexplorer is enabled, but I cannot get the unit to use the bus or subway routes for any of the cities supported by cityexplorer. All i can do is get a path from source to destination by walking only.
Is there a setting I have to enable on the gps to get the bus routes listed as part of the cityxplorer routing?
Yes it is and it is a bit tricky:
in the main screen top second from left touch the car/bike/pedestrian symbol and then change the "UsageMode" to "Pedestrian - Powered by cityXplorer" and push "ok"
Then from the main screen select "Tools" then "Settings", "Navigation" and "Transit Types", there you can select Bus, Train and/or Metrorail.
Note: first of all you have to choose "Pedestrian"-mode, otherwise you cannot select Bus, Train, ...
