    Why do you want to use Mapsource with Bluecharts?
    Homeport is the right program, you wont have all the charts features in installing charts in MS. You can use the trick form the link in post 6, but I dont recommend it. It's useful just to print some routes.

    Don't think they'll try because they know g2 bluecharts have a problem with MS or vice versa or both. Just 'cos i'm bored i've downloaded this map and tried loading it into MS with GMapTool and it just doesn't want to play. Works fine in HomePort though, so it does beg the question as asked by catymag "why do you want to use Mapsource with Bluecharts?". I'm no great fan of either Homeport or Basecamp and very much prefer to work with MS rather than BC if possible for "normal" maps. But sometimes you just have to roll over and use the software that best suits the product. Cheers Mate, smooth sailing

    When you make a reverse engineering of a IMG-file to a MapSource installation it will be a very simple preview map. GMapTool starts cGPSmapper to build a default simple preview map. In many cases that preview map will have very strange outer borders and zoom levels.

    I don't have cGPSmapper installed just now (using a new computer since one week back in time). The problem with HPC024R in this case would most probably be that it crosses the date line. Normally you have a scale from -180 to +180 (west to east). This map wraps over +/E 180 and also goes into the -/W 169 area. This might need some special tuning of the parameters for the build process of the preview map. Look at the west, east, north & south borders for this "cpreview" part of cGPSmapper.

    Great work Mick. Works fine on those settings when i tried it, looks good to my untrained eye. At least shows the chart completely, not the chopped-up partial views of NZ only which resulted from the default settings ("Limit map preview" box unchecked). Also seems to work ok on:
    North = 89.5
    South = -89.5
    West = -178
    East = 178
    and maybe will work on other settings as well.

    It seems the East/West settings are the crucial ones? Ballebar might explain it , BB is it the dateline crossing, or are the settings a generic problem with all g2's in MS? I had heard or read somewhere that BC g2's give big problems and often don't display anywhere near properly in MS, if at all.

    There does seems to be a lot less functionality than when displayed in HomePort though, again I'm not much familiar with Bluecharts so i don't know how badly that impacts at end use.

    Mick, you still haven't said why you were so keen to get this up in MS. Is there something you can do easier there than in HP?, or are you just more comfortable working with MS?

    MS is easier to switch between maps
    Road, Bush and water

    That was the only reason
