    I was able to install the Hongkong img to the Mapsource but the map is locked in Mapsource. Any ideas on how to unlock it please? Thanks.

    As you say in your excellent tutorial, you lose search capabilities when you install to mapsource like this. Also when I transferred some mapsets across to my Nuvi the search function is lost there as well. Does anybody know a way of installing an .img file to mapsource without losing search?

    Cheers

    @grmnuser

    The GB Discoverer 1:50K is not a good candidate for reverse engineering to MapSource.
    If you use latest BaseCamp instead you can view the raster map layer as well as the detail level (depending on zoom level and detail level settings). Just put the IMG-file into Garmin directory on a USB stick or a memory card mounted in Windows. It works well with the map in a GPS unit in mass storage mode also.
    If you don't have a removable storage device you can create a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Same problem as caty and grmnuser. More specifics: using Garmin Bluechart G2 HXUS039R - US, v12.00. With gMapTool (v0.5.6.2721), gmapsupp.img splits into ~460 img files. When installed to MapSource (6.15.11), the chart/map is displayed as a tan/vertical bar with random chart objects displayed. If you scale out to 500 or 700 miles, the left-part of the chart is displayed. Is is almost as if MapSource comes to a chart img that it doesn't understand and stops displaying. I verified the same behavior in both BaseCamp and HomePort.

    Unfortunatly, this method doesn't display maps in MapSource, BaseCamp or HomePort. Yes, you can copy the original gmapsupp.img to a flash drive and HomePort will properly read/display. However, this doesn't solve my problem for wanting the charts in Mapsource - mainly to select/combine individual chart tiles and copy to the GPS. For example, I want my local area bluechart, topo and city streets on the GPS.

    The good news is in MapSource, even though the images don't display, the map borders do display. If you are creative, you can still select the individual tiles (Tools-Map) and Send to GPS (Transfer-Send to Device). This does allow combining various charts into a single gmapsupp.img file on the GPS. Although awkward, this satisifies my original goal.

    I would like to understand what is causing the split img files to fail on MapSource? Is there a better way to split/combine the images that works with MapSource? Would appreciate any further thoughts. Thanks.

    Hey,

    I've split the maps Garmin City Navigator Indonesia 2010.20 with gmaptool and cgsmapper, installed the map as administrator, successfully, MapSource (patched) recognizes the new Garmin City Navigator Indonesia 2010.20 maps, i unlock them with the Garmin Unlock Generator 1.5 using my own MapID i generated with gmaptool. Maps unlock in MapSource (patched) (unlock status in Utilities/Manage map products), then i send them to my device, GMobile XT 5.00.50s60.9 and when i launch GMobile XT i get an error: Can't unlock maps using Unit ID: XXXXXXXXXX
    Where did i go wrong??
