Good evening catymag i am trying to create a Mexico partial map taking the files of the full map.
Uncompress the full map with Gmap Tool and once identified the partial maps that I need
added them to Gmap Tool:
23033358.img Corpus Christi Texas
23033444.img San Luis Potosi
23033448.img San Juan del Rio
23033450.img Leon Gto
23033453.img Merida, Yucatan
23033455.img Ciudad Juarez
23033457.img Ciudad de Mexico
along with the files:
With the JOIN option I create the IMG file and copied the image to the System folder of the GPS.
But when searching for any address or cross streets appears a window that says: "The map data are not available"
I download the map of Mexico of spijun in the 38 post and it works perfectly to find addresses and cross streets.
The same thing happens with your map of Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Chiapas in the 39 post, works perfectly.
But I want to know what I am doing wrong, I don't like just ask, I prefer to do the job and shows what i do.
Could you say what I am doing wrong?
Thank you very much.
Maps made with Gmaptool don't have address search enabled as stated in tutorial

If you want a fully functional img in gps, download Map pc installer and make your IMG with Basecamp/Mapinstall.NOTE:Remember this kind of Mapsource installation wont give you search capabilities
From GmapTool Help: "Unfortunately GMapTool is unable to convert a MDR file form mapset into a format acceptable by Mapsource. Do not bind this file to Mapsource, it will not work properly."
Thank you very much for the information.
I trate to do whith basecamp but when I want to select the section of the map, I canīt see the map even whit the zoom.
I have the last version of basecamp and windows 7.

Have you removed from your PC the simple preview map that you made with GMapTool? Maybe that's what you're now seeing in BaseCamp.
You can use only MapInstall to make an image, either directly or from BaseCamp. You can invoke MapInstall from BaseCamp if you wish, or simply open MapInstall directly. See here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

or in Basecamp/Menu/View deselect Basic Map Only.
Neil, at last I can see the map and I did it.
Thank you for your information.
