    Guide Garmin Streetpilot onboard on iPhone tips and tricks

    Because it is quite difficult to find your way through hundreds of post, I think it is a good idea to combine the available and new info.

    My contribution

    Putting extra maps on the iPhone.
    Option 1
    Spoiler: click
    Possible mapnames (example with bought Europe West Garmin app):
    In storage-western-eu\.System:
    -gmapbmap.img standard basemap
    -gmapprom.img standard/default map
    -gmap3d.img buildings; can also be used for different maps
    -gmaptz.img info timezones

    -gmapprom1.img extra map
    -gmapoem.img extra map

    In sdcard\Garmin
    -gmapsupp.img extra map
    -gmap3d.img extra map

    This way it is possible to add 5 (unlocked) maps to the default available map.


    Option 2
    Spoiler: click
    Put alle the extra maps in sdcard\Garmin\Map (create folder 'Map' if not existing). Map names are irrelevant as long the extension is .img
    There seem to be a maximum on the number of files (10 maps work fine for me).
    The advantage of putting extra maps in sdcard\Garmin\Map is when upgrading the app all extra maps are still there. When using mapnames like gmapsupp.img, thes can be overwritten by the update.


    Option 1 and option 2 can be used together

    Spoiler: click

    By adding:
    <key>map_switch</key>
    <true/>
    to the 'TargetConfig.plist' file in 'garmin-nav.app' the maps get toggle switches.


    Some extra features:
    By adding this code to the 'settings_general.plist' file in 'garmin-nav.app' , you get some extra feautures like GPS demo mode (to run a demo routing to the selected destination) and extra reset functions.

    kan2543 about the maps ur right!
    I manage with the
    <key>map_switch</key>
    <true/>
    using the iFile on Iphone is much more easy.
    Now im fighting with the rest...

    kan2543 very good! Much easier than the different end limited names. Now you can give the maps regonizable names.
