Does the TYP files for FID 1234 contain line styles for the Garmin codes 
you use for the contours? Or don't you use a TYP at all?

If you put the gmapsupp.img from step 1 onto a GPS unit, do you see the 
map + contours?

Does the SRTM layer cover the correct area?

Yes, with 6.15.7 I often see the contour line numbers only, but not the 
lines. 6.13.7 works much better, although if you zoom and pan around a 
lot in Mapsource sometimes the upper layers disappear. After zooming out 
completely, restarting Mapsource and zooming in again everything is 
fine. Others have reported the same problems. I don't know if these are 
Mapsource bugs or map issues.
