[mkgmap-dev] Maps in *.gmap format installation directory

From osm@pinns osm at pinns.co.uk on Mon Dec 18 15:50:56 GMT 2017

For all w7 and 10 you can just dump the gmaps in


There is no need to register your product

This works for both Basecamp and Mapsource

To be honest , Garmin Express allows you to install city navigator 
anywhere on your pc, BUT uses registry (Installed)

I have also come across the following:

apart from the above

     C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\GARMIN\Maps (hidden folder!) or
     c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\garmin\maps 
(Win XP)
