Send Maps to your GPS


There are several ways to do this. Please have a look into the subtopics. Principally you can:


1. Use Mapsource/Basecamp (under Windows). It is a bit slow but reliable, and low on resources.

2. Use mkgmap (cross-platform) -- this is the quickest possibility but needs lots of RAM if you want to have address search for the map enabled on your GPS.

3. Use Qlandkarte GT (cross-platform) - might be difficult to compile the GPS drivers for your system.

4. Convert the maps (using Windows) to Garmin Roadtrip for Mac OSx and use that instead of Mapsource.

5. Use "sendmap".



1. Usare Mapsource/Basecamp (sotto Windows)

2. Usare mkgmap (multi-piattaforma)

3. Usare Qlandkarte GT (multi-piattaforma) - potrebbe essere difficile da compilare per il vostro sistema operativo.

4. Convertire le mappe (usando Windows) per usarle su Garmin Roadtrip per Mac OSx ed usarlo al posto di Mapsource.

5. Usare sendmap.
