    Hello,

    Nice to see a neighbor here writing. Please, answer a little query and think we will have an answer:

    1. What kind of map do you want to create? A marine one?
    2. With which garmin unit you are going to use it?
    3. What is the perpose of this map?
    4. Do you have data of Danube or you are collecting one?

    Mapsource is a tool for using garmin maps but not for creating ones. The software which is creating some of the garmin maps, and gladly is available in the free society "internet", is called MPC or Mapsource Product Creator. Have a look:

    Excuse me for the late reply. Yes, Catys' suggestion is very good! There is already a made map for garmin for the EU Waterways. Unfortunately, I can't find its source files. So if you want to add, change etc. something in the mapping it won't be possible.

    But here a couple of ideas if you want to start drawing your own map:

    @seal77
    Apart from "European Waterways Map for Garmin Receivers" there is an interesting project at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    The sources files are the ENC charts in the format S57 and the links to these files are at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
