    Default A portable Mapsource or BaseCamp in your pendrive ?

    A portable Mapsource CNE or CNNAM in your pendrive ?


    Do like that:
    create a directory and put in it only your patched Mapsource.exe (use v.6.16.3) , create a subdirectory named Maps and copy in it the CNE or CNNAM Gmap folder.
    You dont need any other file or to install anything

    this is MS CNNAM running from my pendrive.

    Default Please update this threads title to add that....

    BaseCamp also works to!!!
    How about "Portable MapSource & BaseCamp on a Pen Drive"?

    SAXnV

    Here's what I did...

    1 - Create a "Garmin" and a "Maps" folder on a pen drive (such as "F:\Garmin\Maps").
    2 - Copy "MapSource v6.16.3 Special.exe", "BaseCamp v3.1.3 Special.exe", (AND, from your PC's BaseCamp install folder at "C:\Program Files\Garmin\BaseCamp", these following files...) "exiv2.dll", "xerces-c_3_0.dll" & "zlibwapi.dll" all to the pen drive's "Garmin" folder created in step 1.
    See the pic below:
    OksU2
    3 - Copy a Garmin maps .gmap folder (such as one from CNNA, CNEU, etc...) to the "Maps" folder created in step 1.
    4 - After step 3 (read the Note #1 below!), you can then also copy BaseCamps default "Global Map" (Global Application Basemap v2.gmap) from your PC's BaseCamp install folder (located at "C:\Program Files\Garmin\BaseCamp\Maps\Global Application Basemap v2.gmap") to the "Maps" folder created in step 1.
    Note #1: The "Global Map" will NOT appear in the BaseCamp "Select a map product to display" OR the MapSource "Select a Product" drop-down selections UNLESS there is at least one other .gmap map folder (from step 3) in there along with the "Global Application Basemap v2.gmap" folder.
    Note #2: BaseCamp .img files can be locked or unlocked and any name (such as "City Navigator Middle East & Northern Africa NT 2011.30 + Egypt, Morocco & Lybia.img", but they MUST be in the "Garmin" folder that's in the root of the pen drive.

    My above post DOES NOT WORK for WinXP SP3.
    However it should work with Win7 (and possibly Vista).

    Probabably a not too smart question. But that 'special' file of the excutable is that just a plain good old fashioned patched version? I guess so.

    You guess right. And it is a smart question. This also works for HomePort, but i haven't tried with the newer versions.

    I've got it working! I followed instructions from the first post. except I think I used a non patched version of the last Basecamp version. And it still works!!!!! why a non-patched version? I forgot that I updated Basecamp. When I started to use Basecamp from my pendrive I saw a pop-up with a video and a new feature of adventures in Basecamp. So my guess is I took the new non-patched version from my PC on my pendrive. Very funny it still works!

    It doesn't have to be the patched exe for the program to 'work' as a portable installation. The main difference is that you can send images to any drive with a patched version of MS, BC/MI.
