    You can add a polyline for Active Routing. Quoted from TypViewer thread:

    Select the polyline you want to modify according to various Profile Activity and click on Edit.
    Copy and close the Edit window.
    Click on New (i.e. Polyline)
    Paste
    Modify the colours (or everything else) as you want
    Don't forget to choose your Activity you want to (keep the same type and subtype than the original polyline).Save the Polyline

    Save the typ file (To do this, don't forget, before saving your modified typ file, to increase the size of the header to 174 bytes (using the combobox "Header size"))

    When I said that you can add a polyline, I was talking about typ file: adding a polyline in a typ file is not the same than adding a polyline in the map.

    Topo France v3 allows active routing, but the colors and the look of the polylines are the same for every activity ( change activity in Basecamp, no polyline changes...)
    You can modify that by adding polylines attached to an activity in the TYP file: this can be done using TYPViewer. So , some polylines can change , depending the activity you choose. But those polylines already existed in the map.

    If this GR is in the wrong place, a typ file cannot fix that.
    As Mapperoni said, to fix that either you save the track of the right GR in a gpx file, either you created your own transparent map with a polyline created with this track...

    Does any one know how to get the DOM TOM topo map ?
    I allreday download the Metropolitan map, everything work fine on oregon. Map a much more readable, but navigating (where to do/trail ) is painfull. May be better on Montana with a more powerfull cpu.

    I'd disable DEM, it should be faster and more usable

    You have to navigate to get to the good.

    As far as I can tell, Topo France v3 Pro has a 40 m contour interval (most of the newer Garmin maps have a 20 or 25 m interval).
    Why is it not more accurate?

    Topo France always had a 40m interval. It's a good choice because too many contourlines will make the more important map details very difficult to see. In my opinion the brown contourlines are already too dominant, I always change them to light-grey (1 pixel broad) in the typ-file.

    I accept your opinion.
    I just looked at the Garmin Swiss topo. It looks fine to me with its 20 m (and at some places even 10 m) contour interval (and its level of detail).
    Part of it may be a matter of personal preferences, but I consider the Swiss topos to be quite good (both, their vector and their raster topos).

    Thank you for the map. I have two questions. I downloaded the locked version (zippy) and unlocked it using FastIMG 2.1. The locked file is 3.69GB but the unlocked file is only 2.63GB. I am surprised at the reduction in file size - but is is recognised in basecamp. Have I used the correct unlocking programme?

    I have also made an SQL folder, containing the db file, within the garmin folder containing the unlocked img file. But I cannot see any evidence of the SQL file on my Garmin GPS62s - or basecamp. Have I put the SQL folder in the correct place?

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    The Swiss Topo map is excellent indeed, they always had good paper-maps too.
    I forgot to tell you that the French IGN is very clever too, the Garmin Topo-maps have a 40 meter interval in steep mountain areas but in flatter landscapes like the North and West of France the interval is only 5 meter!
    By adapting the interval to the steepness of the landscape, contourlines will never clutter and cover the entire map!
