    Great stuff, when put into MapSource (Win 7, Mapsource 6.15.7) a LOT of the map information is displayed as bodies of water when it's supposed to be land. I'm not too disturbed, so long as the ROADS are there

    I suppose you've made a preview map with GMapTool to view in MS. Not a good idea really. Just check the image has it's MS Flag set to 0 [zero], not 1, using GMapTool and then view in BaseCamp instead of MapSource. Put the image on an SD/MicroSD, named gmapsupp.img in a folder named Garmin, or anyname.img in a folder named Map and BC will see it.

    As a new member, you may not have fully read post #1. In particular the screen shot of the download page. It says:

    You can't decompile this map into MapSource. You can't. Don't bother trying.
    The issue you encountered may be what the uploader is referring to with this statement.

    tested on garmin xt n97 mini and can confirm that land is shown as bodies of water with no contours which can get really confusing especially when you use it in the islands, however still very useful .

    thanks gentlemen. i took the original file and broke it up in GMapTool, solely for the purpose so that I could mark out waypoints in mapsource... and i'm sticking to 6.15.7 solely because there is a custom map for my country that cannot work in newer versions of mapsource. as such, i didn't try basecamp although i've downloaded that on my older laptop but i thought it worked too slowly.

    thanks for the sharing and feedback!

    Using a Nuvi 37xx here. Like everyone else who have been trying this, it appears that most of the map is being rendered as water.
    Tokyo is all water , no road. Southern Japan, some roads but cuts off at certain area. I suspect the GPS tried to process the image file, and it was successful partially, and probably gave up after encountering some error that it can't handle.
    but I cant seem to reproduce it again after a reboot of the device.
    Could it be that the img file is corrupted, or does it have a hard time and decides to aboard rendering?
    Either way, it appears the navigation works, of course its really useless if you cant see whats going on, as roads are very densely packed.

    I'm going to tinker with it more, but might just revert back to version 4.

    Reverted back to version 4.
    While the routes are there, but in practical day to day usage, its pretty useless. You'll never be able to find your way out off anything with this.

    There are many issues with the UUD maps, the plus side is you get English the downside is they aren't nearly as accurate as the real Garmin maps. The way to get the most bang for your buck is to own a Japanese Garmin and slip the UUD in the micro SD slot, that allows you to search in English like Garmin's POI's and then simply switch back to the base map to navigate. Another huge plus with the Japanese versions is the ability to search telephone number. So when you use a hybrid of both systems you get the best of both worlds.

    As a junior member I can't really see half of the postings on here so disregard if that has already been posted somewhere.
