    Default Change name of map in Garmin?

    How can I change the name of a map in my Garmin.
    I made several maps of France Topo. (France Nord.img, France Sud.img)
    In my Garmin I see two maps called France Topo. How can I change the name?

    Yes it does. You may have done something wrong, try again with catymag's instructions and select 'Write All'. You will see in the log that the new name has been entered into the MPS subfile and the header.

    Its maybe because I work on a Mac and run Windows 7 under Parallels.
    I'll try on a PC when I find one.

    If these are parts of the same map, then GPS can show them as a single item.
    Thanks, Kanopus

    Please upload a log from Gmaptool for each of two files. Usually there is solution with using HEX editor only...
