Universal use of free Garmin maps
Free Garmin maps
could be used with Magellan or other GPS on a PC or PDA. Owners of
simpel Garmin devices with no map memory could also use the maps for
planning und viewing GPS data.
User-build free maps for Garmin GPS could be viewed
MapEdit (Freeeware-version) and be exported to maps for use with
OziExplorer. (including calibration file). The exported map can be
converted to other raster formats using IrfanView or
another graphics programm.
the maps in img-format can be converted
to dbx-format, which is supported by TrackMaker (see
screenshot). Opening the dbx-file needs no calibration and you are
working with vector data. With the help of these maps, routes, tracks
waypoints could be created and transferred to a wide range of GPS
devices. As TrackMaker supports the export of more GPS formats, the
data could be used with several programmes.
the data could also be imported to fGIS a
free GIS programm.
