    As owner of my first Garmin, a 2595LMT, I was wondering if it can be "Upgraded" to show Australian 3D buildings and 3D topo maps?
    Thanks

    Downloaded all the required bits, followed the "How To" Tutorials
    BUT no luck with the Aussie version of the 2595LMT
    All of the Map Layers are there (and ticked) but no Terrain and only grey flat 3D buildings
    Thanks anyway

    @ BlindPete

    Read with care post #1 here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Extract:

    Unfortunately, however,even if the functions are enabled as the maps loaded, no function, are active. Only the outlines of the buildings

    Hi Roger 1109
    I was fiddling with my Garmin last night after I'd installed all the bits previously mentioned.
    I noticed after setting a simulated trip, with the Topo Aus/NZ V.4 Map, that if I switched from 3d to "Track up" Driving view, that I can see a shaded, colored landscape away from built up town areas,
    Is this part of Topo?, or is it because of the previous Terrain installation?
    Thanks

    @ BlindPete

    It seems strange that TOPO has a display 3dTerrain (DEM) or 3dbuilding (gmap3d),or which may render the 3D Terrain/3dBuilding of other map (CN)

    Try disabling the gmap3d.img or DEM and see if it behaves the same.

    If you post a screenshot we can better understand.Tnx...

    Bye,bye

    Hi Roger 1109
    Attached are screenshots of my local area.
    I did remove the DEM file, but not the 3D Bldg file.
    Happy New Year to you and yours

    Have you modified topo transparency with GMapTool ?

    So do you have Australia gmapdem.img and topo Australia v4 ?
    3Dterrain can work even on flat topo maps using gmapdem.img or alternatively shadings can come from basemap-
    Topo has value priority 20, parameters 1 4 9 33 , gmapdem value priority 30, parameters 1 3 17 1-
