    Default How to enable Bluecharts printing in Garmin Homeport.

    How to enable Bluecharts printing in Garmin Homeport.



    Usually printing in Homeport the latest Bluecharts ,is impossible, but we can use GMapTool ,to do it. How ?
    Open GMapTool
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    import your Bluechart gmapsupp.img into it,
    Spoiler: click
    enable in Options tab , advanced options,
    open Split tab and compile it like it's shown here:

    xRgMkQM

    create a directory (here C:\Documents and Settings\Desktop\Bluechart for MS) and give your map a name the one you'll have in MapSource,
    in Create window select "files for Mapsource",
    check "Compile preview map" and "Create TDB for marine map"
    set also mapset FID with the FID of your BC (in this case 2028).
    Then run Split all.
    GMaptool will create, in your created directory ,the files to install your BC in mapsource.
    Open that directory and install it running install batch inside-
    You'll have it installed in Mapsource


    but also in Homeport and you can create routes and print your map with routes.

    not all the Bluecharts features will be supported in this kind of maps, but we'll have printing enabled

    Sorry I havent read well previous post. Preview map cant be compiled because probably Gmaptool cant find cGPSMapper.
    You have installed it, but you must let Gmaptool see it.

    Use cGPSMapper free version. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
