    By adapting the interval to the steepness of the landscape, contourlines will never clutter and cover the entire map!
    Thanks for pointing this out (I would not have noticed).
    To check, I looked at the area around Arles, and yes, the contour interval is 5 m.
    The level of detail (buildings, POIs, etc.) is excellent, too.

    Hi,

    A 40 m interval in mountains is not really sufficient for hiking in terms of details. Fortunatly I make my own .kmz raster maps from french IGN maps far more detailed than Topo Garmin when I trek in french mountains.

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.
    I'll give it a try (I'm certainly NOT an expert).
    I assume you downloaded the locked IMG from catymag's post #4.
    If you still have the ORIGINAL LOCKED IMG, create a new folder (e.g., named France3Unl), make a copy of the IMG into this folder, rename the copy with Unl in the name to indicate it will be unlocked (e.g., TopoFranceV3Unl.IMG - do NOT change the extension IMG), and keep the original as a backup (do NOT touch the original).
    (If you don't have the original, you'll have to download again, make a copy of it, etc.).
    Get Garmin Image Unlock gimgunlock v0.01 (in Software & Tools section) and extract (or copy) gimgunlock.exe into the folder with the copy of the original locked IMG (both, gimgunlock.exe and the IMG copy should now be in the same folder).
    In your file manager (usually Windows Explorer) click on the IMG copy and drag it onto gimgunlock.exe (for more details see the info in the Software & Tools section).
    A window will appear with text scrolling by (and close again after gimgunlock.exe is done).
    The IMG copy will now be unlocked.
    Then proceed as usual (copy unlocked IMG copy into Garmin folder of SD card, db file in SQL folder, etc.). For BaseCamp you can create a virtual SD on your PC (look in the Garmin Tutorials section).
    You should see the effect of the db file in BaseCamp when you use routing with different Activity Profiles (e.g., select Automotive, then Hiking in upper left of BaseCamp screen; a car cannot use all the paths a hiker can use).
    I hope this helps.
    Please spend more time trying the learn from the excellent info offered by this board (so that you can help less experienced users in the future).
    Please report progress (and how to improve my instructions, if they were hard to follow).

    Disable DEM on 62s: Menu > Setup > Map > Advanced Map Setup > Shaded Relief: Do Not Show

    In my opinion you are not missing something important
    I'm afraid it's wrong, see post n6 here

    SQL db files also work on a 62s/sc.
    You can find the Trails by pressing the 'Find' button.

    Thank you. I have tried gimgunlock v0.01 but it does not unlock the IMG file. I am a bit puzzled by this I have used gimgunlock before and it has worked. But I have now tried 3 times with the Topo France V3 IMG without success. FastIMG does unlock the IMG but it compresses the file a lot as I mentioned in my original post.
