How to view malfreemaps on mapsource and base camp?

Postby jeryll » Thu Jun 16, 2016 10:44 pm

I have just gotten a Montana and i have turn blue trying to get malfreemaps to show up on map source or base camp. I have went through the FAQ and newbies sections but wasn't in luck. Is there a need to convert gmapsupp.img to .gpx?

I am trying to add poi and plan a route or viewing on the computer rather viewing on a small screen gps device.

Thanks for the help.

I have had Nuvi and it was straight forward simple. Download unpack and tranfer to nuvi unit. Viola done.

This montana is giving me blueballs. :ko:

I have tried your method but it didn't work. Not that simple for newbie like me. Maybe i am just not that good with computer.
Tried and tried and tried. No map to display at all. Then i accidentally stumble on youtube video about mapsource opening map. \:D/
