vietnam map

Postby nak71 » Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:44 am

I have downloaded a map of vietnam and extracted it to *.img but the problem is the filename is Viet Nam Open.img. It can be open via Mapsource but on garmin it does not appear. Is there any way to convert this map into readable map on GMXT ?

Thanks

Mapsource only reads *.gdb, *.gpx, *.mps, & *.loc files. It cannot read *.img

Are you sure that the file you download is a Garmin's proprietary IMG map format for their brand of GPS receivers *.img file ?

yes i can create the *.img file and browse Vietnam (poi included) on Mapsource, but on GMXT nothing appear so how to make it readable on GMXT . I tried rename it from Viet Nam Open.img to gmapprom.img and gmapsup1.img but still nothing appeared on my GMXT.

I'm wiling to upload it here (vietnam map) if it can be done.

Thanks.
