    I joined several maps from different IMG files into a single IMG file and... lost address search. Routing works fine, even searching for crossings and city districts work well. When doing an address search I only see countries from a single IMG file, other countries, actual for maps extracted from other IMG files, are no longer available. Could somebody please explain what was wrong in what I did?

    I had the following set:

    • Garmin City Navigator Europe 2011.32 NT (Setup with MapSource);
    • Garmin CityXplorer Helsinki 2011.10 - IMG
    • Garmin CityXplorer Moscow 2011.10 - IMG
    • Garmin CityXplorer St. Petersburg 2011.10 - IMG
    • Garmin City Navigator Russia NT 2011.40 - IMG
    • Garmin Roads of Russia 5.21- IMG
    • Garmin Roads of Russia Topo 6.08 - IMG
    • Garmin Basemap for Mobile XT - IMG (downloaded from here _http://www.garmin.ru/GarminMobileXTFull.exe)


    I extracted everything with GMapTool as a mapset for MapSource.
    Selected necessary regions from each of the map using the MapSource.
    Created a single new IMG file incorporating all the selected regions.

    The problem is: when doing address search I have Garmin Mobile XT providing only the countries available in the City Navigator Europe 2011.32 NT product. Why is that?

    I also understand that I was wrong to include CityXplorer maps (because they are not necessary when I have Garmin City Navigator Russia NT and City Navigator Europe) but still... It is also it is probably wasn't a good idea to export the basemap and then export it back into the IMG as a separate map (instead of leaving it as-is as a separate IMG file).

    BTW, Caty from the link you gave me ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) I understood that all the basemap does is it provides for easy scaling from the bird's eye view to larger zoom. However, with MapsetToolkit I see that the basemap's mapset is routable and so is the Garmin City Navigator Europe 2011.32 NT. All other mapsets are non-routable. Why is that? Is it because I incorrectly imported maps from their IMG files into mapsets using the GMapTool?

    Thank you all in advance and pleas excuse me I somehow abused forum's rules.

    You cant have enabled routable maps that cover the same area and that overlap, this can be your problem-
    The basemap must be apart and cant be deselected and must be named gmapbmap.img if you want it can work properly.

    Hello.
    Need help with mobile xt. Can I use 5 maps on mobile xt? If yes. Then how? I have: gmapbmap, gmapprom, gmapsupp and gmapsup2. These all work fine and I know that the fifth map works too because when I change the maps names I get it to work but not all them together. Any ideas, I have tried everything from here (the app folder and the gmapoem). I have nokia n95 8gb and latest garmin xt soft.

    Instructions about installation many maps are working well on Nokia E90, MobileXT 500.50 software. Same trick does not work on NÜVI550. I have been tested to add into internal memory and micro sd the file gmapsup2.img, on both cases no result. Device do not see this map. Any suggestions?

    Some times has left and as nobody was interested to give exact instructions, I took a time and made it clear for my self.
    At Mobile XT I go working in folder garmin following file (map) names:
    gmapbmap.img;
    gmapprom.img;
    gmapprom1.img;
    gmapsup2.img;
    gmapsupp.img.

    At NUVI550 the good result is following:
    internal memory
    gmapprom.img
    gmapbmap.img
    gmapprom1.img
    gmapsupp.img
    gmaptz.img
    gmapoem.img

    MicroSD card
    gmapsupp.img

    Sorry to ask a repeated (maybe) question, but I have spent 3 days and 1 night on your excellent site and I need to go to bed (it is almost 10am local time)

    I have a NUVI 370, a NUVI 755T and a NUVI 1450 in hands and I have some questions on multi-map installation:

    0) In all the questions below, I talk about ROUTABLE and SEARCHABLE maps (otherwise I regard the maps useless - for me at least) - Please take this into account!!

    1) In the tutorial on the first page you do not mention if it is the internal memory or the SD memory and you mention a GARMIN folder - for example the 370 has all these files (gmapbmap.img, gmapprom.img and gmapprom1) in the root of the internal memory (no Garmin folder in the int-memory as you mention in the tutorial) - Do I miss something?

    2) How many MAXIMUM .img files can I have in the int-memory and how many maximum maps on the [SD]\Garmin or elsewhere? - In the 370 the gmapsup1.img or gmapsup2.img on the SD-card cannot be "seen" - Do I make something wrong (I am maybe tired by browsing your site)?

    3) I noticed that gmapsup1.img is not permitted but gmapsup2.img is OK - Correct? Why? Isn't it strange?

    4) The *.unl file (single file) or many *.unl files: where do we put them? Together with the associated file(s) (same folder) or in the [Garmin unit] root folder or [Garmin unit]\Garmin?

    5) Can I try to load maps into the [Unit]\GARMIN\App\ folder or/and [SD-card]\Garmin\App in the above NUVI's as you claim on the 1st post - or "try on error"??

    6) To increase the number of maps, I can load one .img file with combined maps and then select from the program menu, say only 1 map of the set, but this map will NOT be SEARCHABLE (i.e. useless, for me) - Please confirm.

    7) If I put overlapped maps, (example: gmapprom.img = CT Europe NT 2011.04 (including GReek street names w/latin characters) and gmapsupp.img [in the internal memory OR in the SD card] (a very detailed map of Greece w/street names in Latin OR Greek-I have both maps), will there be any problem/conflict? If not, which map has precedence? i.e. having EU(Latin) and GReece(Latin) loaded (and selected!!!) when I search a street in GR typing Latin letters, which map will be used or make the automatic search?

    8) I hope there is no problem of having {maps unlocked} together with {maps locked and their respective *.unl files}. Confirm please.

    9) If I mess up the maps (*.img) files is there any possibility to make the unit UNUSABLE?
    Strange question you might say but I screwed up a 755T a month ago-I deleted the gmapprom.img file FIRST and then copied a map with the name gmaprom.img instead of gmapprom.img (I missed one "p"). The result was that it did not boot AT ALL and no connection possible w/the PC. From what I have read/studied in your site it should not be the case of damaging the unit but I am PRETTY SURE that this is what I did between "working" and "not working" status of it. Do not claim removing the unit from USB port w/o first ejecting it (I am an electronic engineer and a very experienced user of PCs - it was not the case with me!!! - Perhaps it was to happen to the unit and it was not the change of the file but please answer the question based on your big experience) Unfortunately, I had to (fortunately) replace it (it was still under guarantee-bought <1 month before) and get a new one.

    10) Finally, noticed that filenames have a max length 8.3 (filename=8 characters , ext=3 - This reminds me of old DOS files). Is it correct?

    Then what was written in post #57 might be wrong !!!!:

    Post #57
    Some times has left and as nobody was interested to give exact instructions, I took a time and made it clear for my self.
    At Mobile XT I go working in folder garmin following file (map) names:
    gmapbmap.img;
    gmapprom.img;
    gmapprom1.img; <-= LOOK HERE PLEASE: FILE LENGTH IS 9.3 not 8.3
    gmapsup2.img;
    gmapsupp.img.

    11) Since the TMC receiver can be bought (I think) separately and plugged into(???) the USB socket, could the 370 and 1450 become 370T and 1450T? Is there a USB-socket TMC receiver at GARMIN gadgets (I can search the GARMIN site of course, but if you know, please tell me). The actual question is if the TMC s/w is embedded in the GPS s/w independently if the unit has a "T" in the model number - For example my 755T actually is a 755 model (refurbished) (printed on the label and on the about/help indication of the s/w) but I bought it as a 755T w/a TMC receiver cable/antenna and it works fine!! It was the replacement of the screwed up 755T (see Question 9), the original was a (refurbished) 755T with 755T label and 755T indication on the help/about info field of the s/w. I am saying that because another guy had ordered from the same store a 755T but received a 755 (probably with a TMC cable/receiver) but he was unhappy and returned it - I think this is a useful piece of info for your forum users to have in mind

    The 755T TMC receiver uses another Garmin socket to send data to and to charge the 755T unit in the car. This socket is located on the GPS hold-system between the unit and the cradle. However, the unit has a USB-mini socket which can be used for connection to a PC or for charging.
    The 370 has a traffic menu and when you select it it requests to connect the TMC receiver ;-) !!! but the 755T or 755 needs a TMC receiver connected to the unit (and maybe receiving TMC data) in order to show the TMC menu Probably the 1450 does the same (I have not tried it yet)

    This is a lengthy and detailed post in order to make your answers as short as possible and hopefully help other users.

    Thanks in advance!!! - George

    Finally I did not go to bed - I will sleep tonight ... but I kept digging in this excellent site (4th day + 1 night) so I will answer to my questions for the benefit of other users having the same/similar problems:

    Q2: It seems that 755T (which I have - the other units belong to friends) can use up to 9 *.img files (Lucky me!!) I assume that similar units supporting 3dmaps will have the same number. Other units ... better see the post of my co-patriot Santosan:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    #6 of a greek fellow Santosan

    ADDITIONAL INFO: I found out in the forum that Nuvis 1xxx can have MANY maps in the [GARMIN UNIT]\MAP\ folder OR in the [SD CARD]\Map folder and with different than the conventional names Requirement to have an .img extension (AnyName.img) and I SUSPECT file length 8.3 (filename=8 and extension=3), so PERHAPS you cannot have AnyName12.img (length9.3) - Please test!
    However if you have/use the GARMIN folder of internal memory or SD-card then you must use ONLY conventional names (gmapprom.img, gmapsupp.img etc) even on the 1xxx units.
    Can we have both? (MAP and GARMN folders) This is a good question!

    Q3: gmapsup1.img is not permitted (see above same post) - I do not know why (yet!)

    Q6: Combined maps cannot be searchable - I read it somewhere and I tested on the NUVI 370

    Q7: We cannot have ENABLED overlapping maps (= maps covering the same area) [see post #53 above by catyman]

    THANKS TO ... ME for the answers ;-)

    PS: If a ... respectful expert could confirm the above, it would have more added value .... :-)
