|If you want integrate home-made or free garmin- img-files as new mapset to "Mapsource" and/or "Basecamp" (® Garmin), you must do some difficult things like create registrykeys, .TDB und previewfiles. It is a highrisk job. If you make a mistake, the computer or "Mapsource" can go down.|
|For all people, who fight against this problem, i have make the software IMG2MS downloadsite. img2ms can handle 32 bit and 64 bit windows os. Select the .img-files for the new mapset, type in a name und few 'clicks' later the new mapset is automatically integrated. Or use a payed gmapsupp.img from microsd card and splitt it into an mapset for Basecamp. You can get the Software as Demoversion with some limitations or as full version without any limitations . There is the DOWNLOADSITE. The limitations of the Demoversion are : works 14 days. More detail read on german-language-site|
| Also you can change the name of existing mapset's
and the 'Drawpriority'. Also you can add a already
existing typefile to any mapset, or change the
typefile. For exampel you load a City navigator 9NT
with 'DrawPriority' value 20 and a topomap (without
routing) with value 25 on GPS, then you will
show the topo on display but routing works with CN.

|How the software
works : Software procreated a .TDB-file and
Four steps to go : 1: select the img-files (= maptiles) or 1 gmapsupp.img. Img-files must named with 8 numbers and .img or filename must end with .....gmapsupp.img. 2 : type in a name for showing in "Mapsource"/"Basecamp", 3 : only in fullversion : type in a individuall ID-Number. ID-number is always automatically created in a saver way. Demoversion uses only ID-number 1001. 4 : click 'next step/add to mapsource'. That's all.
|Another method is to use existing .tdb and
preview-files, optionaly also .mdx and _mdr.img and
.trf files files. Typicaly OSM-mapsets has such files
in the download. In this case you can register it in
the registry without using cgpsmapper/cpreview. The
software can also delete mapsets from "Mapsource".
Also you can analyse the registry. If there are failed keys, it can kill the failed keys. In this case, the failed keys will displayes as '!!Fehler!!'.
|You can select a homemade typefile or from internet and then the graphic will change like typfile is made. This is possible for all mapset, also for locked mapsets and mapsets in the new 'GARMIN'-gmp-format.. The Software can add any typ-file for existing mapset's. FID will automatically corrected.|
