    Default How to insert maps into Garmin MobilePC?????

    I have on my XP PC - Garmin nRoute with Mapsource MetroGuide version 8 and version 3 with the Garmin GPS18 puck style usb sat reciever. (Have ver 3 and 8 because nroute will not route with 8 but it does with 3). I downloaded and installed successfully the Mobile PC from here. Follwed all the instructions and it did install right and works but have some issues. First - I have all the mapsource maps loaded on the pc but I just do not know how to get mobile PC to see them - I do not know how to insert them into it like it said to in the post. Second - mobile pc will see my gps reciever and it will even pull the id off it as well as show which sats it is connected to - but it gives a error message that it is not a recognized device. Please help me with some instructions on how to get mobile pc to see my maps and gps reciever.
    Thanks in advance.

    Simply unrar the downloaded file and you'll get GarminMobilePC_50070.exe, unrar again to decompress the .exe and run MAIN.msi to install it

    Is there any way to change the font in this program? I don't mean the text in map, but text in the program's screen. At least in my 9" netbook the fonts are gigantic and take at least 20% of the whole screen.

    Hello ,
    I think not ...... :
    in my experience you can change only the fonts in the map
    Edit ----preferences----click on change map fonts : you will see a window in wich you can choose the font (and dimension) you prefer.

    But .... you can try to decrease font size in Windows , maybe work in this way?

    Bye, Umbe

    I presume you want to change text languages from screens and set your own text language. If im right, you should go x:\GarminMobilePC\Text where .gtt files should be. Here you have 2 options, you choose an existing language .gtt file and you edit file with notepad and then you can do your traduction for your own required language and SAVE (not save as) in the end. Or you can try to find a GarminMobilePC compatible .gtt file with your language and put it to x:\GarminMobilePC\Text

    Note: I think .gtt files from Garmin Oregon are compatible with GarminMobilePC.

    If your problem is just the dimension of fonts, i think you should try another resolution screen in windows, eventually update your graphics card drivers or also try to set new font size in Microsoft Windows.

    This is my problem. Too big text and toolbar with too small screen.

    Is there any way to solve this?
