    from a post on Gpspassion by popej:

    Address search in Mapsource is organised differently then in gmapsupp.img. GMapTool doesn't convert index files for address search and you loose that funcionality.

    Converting with Gmaptool a gmapsupp.img to Mapsource version it doesn't support address search.

    Joining Gmaptool Mapsource created files into gmapsupp.img they wont support address search.

    Index file in Mapsource usually is named *_mdr.img. You can add it to gmapsupp.img, but it won't work in GPSr. Index file in Mapsource is bigger then index used in GPSr, this explains why you get bigger gmapsupp.img. Since GMapTool doesn't convert index files, it can create gmapsupp.img much faster then Mapsource.

    Yes just Mapsource can send an IMG with adress search enabled, but if the img has been made with Mapsource ,you can copy your IMG directly in gps and it will be complete with its adress search

    Does that image in the first post made by Mapsource? Or is it a GMapTool img?

    Also, the Mapsource version you've linked to came from a GMapTool img?

    the img posted in first post is an img made with Mapsource as you can see in Gmaptool log
    Code:

    The mapset name has been created by MS

    So what you did was creating an MS version with MapTool which in that process already removed the address search, right? And there's no official MS version (not made with GMapTool) released yet? Or is it that Roadguide.ph decided to release img files and not MS directory files now?

    So technically, the img file in the first post (created with MS) is already ready-to-be-used with address search just by copying it over to your Nuvi device, correct? Are the roads in that map still narrow or do I still need to change the TYP file?

    Yes it is the ready to copy in gps img (with adress search)
    If you have the typ (I dont have it) you can change it with Gmaptool as explained in the previous roadguide version thread in a post of mine, anyway

    Can you please give me a very good reason why you don't want to share the 2.0 contributor's map? When I see your name in this community, an image of a selfish member comes to mind. Sorry, but I can't help but say that, no pun meant or whatsoever.

    Thanks for the info. But are the roads still narrow with the 1.25? And what did you mean by "Original MS created img." in your previous post?
