    Default Converting GPX to routable IMG - Looking for software recommendations

    I am trying to create a routable Garmin IMG for some trails in my area, and I am looking for an easy way to achieve this. I am hoping to get some recommendations.

    Free or paid software is fine, as long as it works.

    I would like to be able to change the route colors, but this is a luxury i can afford to live without.

    I am not overly skilled at map making or anything, so the easier, the better. Also, this is for my own personal use. No one else.

    I've tried GPX2IMG and it gets close, but there are two issues. First, it isn't routable, which is a deal breaker. Second, It leaves a watermark on the map, which I can live with, but I really would rather not have it.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is GPSMapedit with cGPSmapper to do the job.
    but, send me your img and GPX file and I'll make a transparent map routable free for you.

    Awesome, Thank you!

    I don't actually have much for you to work with right now. This will be an ongoing project over the next month or so. I laughed a bit when I clicked your link... It's actually the snowmobile trails in my area that I am trying to map out. Our local club does an awesome job with maintaining the trails, but they have no online presence at all, and they never bother to submit their trail information to other sites like VAST or any mapmaking sites like GPS Trailmasters. So I decided I would try doing the mapping myself so I have something I can use while I am out riding.

    I've downloaded GPSMapedit and I am poking around in it now. I can't figure out how to convert anything to an IMG, but I will keep at it and see if I can figure this out. Thanks for the information!

    I've spent the past day or two playing with GPSMapedit, and I can get the trails to show up on the map just the way I want now. But one issue I am still having: I cannot figure out how to make it routable.

    That didn't work for me with my map.
