    What kind of spliting option do you mean ('files for MS', 'single maps' or others)?

    You need cGPSmapper tool installed on your computer,and point gmaptool to it.

    The cGPSmapper program is only needed for one of the 6 splitting options ('Create files for MS'), provided that you need to compile a preview map.
    We have not figured out yet what kind of splitting option causes some failures.

    @galaxis
    The problem is not with GMapTool or with the software it uses to split the map for MS, e.g. cGPSmapper. It's that the Garmin NT IMG format cannot be fully reverse-engineered to make installable data which is fully functional. The real problem is that search feature is compromised because some data in the IMG cannot be used during the reverse-engineering. Read this:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    To get full functionality in either MapSource or BaseCamp (or in MapInstall if you wish to make smaller IMG files than your gmapsupp.img for use in a device) you should find an unlocked .GMAP folder for NA and work with that. Note that .GMAP data is sometimes referred to as a PC Install Version or Map Source Version. Also note that BaseCamp, but not MapSource, can see and use to some extent a locked or unlocked IMG file in a device, on a media card/usb stick or virtual drive on the PC.

    You are near to truth! Gmaptool use cgpspapper for compiling the base map which is shown above 100 km because the main map does not have any details above 100 km. Cgpspapper is not read NT format properly so it the base map almost blank. You can use any other more detailed base map but you need to paste in it map boundaries from the original base map.
    Garmin, how much is 30 pieces of silver for Judas today? Were they worthy for crucifix of GPSPower?

    I always split maps for my Street Pilot 2720 with Mapsource, then load up the SP depending on where I'm traveling to.
