[mkgmap-dev] NSIS option for Basecamp

From eric.detachment at gmail.com eric.detachment at gmail.com on Wed Feb 1 09:45:19 GMT 2023

Hi Diego,

First question: did you create different tiles? I don’t know how, but it’s possible to create a “one image map” (to be installed on device).
To verify: select and view - installation - folder and count the number of tiles (*.img files).

Maps are not installed by BaseCamp but by MapInstall. Latest version: 4.2.4.
Changes made from version 4.2.0 to 4.2.1: "Fixed installing 3rd party maps".

 - BaseCamp: Devices, select device, “Install Maps on ...”.
 - MapInstall: Select Map(s).
 - Advanced/Partial Install (bottom left side).
 - Zoom (-) to see all tiles.
    - Select tile(s): left mouse click.
    - Deselect tile(s): right mouse click.
 - Bottom listbox: “(192 Selected HIKE_Benelux)” or select different map (and select tiles).
 - Install: only selected Maps will show in list of “Installed Maps” (not number of tiles “Selected”, not “partial” or “complete”)

Hi Diego,

not sure how you transfer small parts of the map to the device. If you do that with Basecamp please make sure that you use the latest version.
See here for more details: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=62468

If this doesn't help please describe more detailed what you try to do, what you expect and what you get instead.

Betreff: [mkgmap-dev] NSIS option for Basecamp

I need help with the NSIS option. I use it to create an installer of my map for Basecamp. It works, but I am not able to load small parts of the map to my device: I can only load the full map, not the single tiles or a selection of them.
My map is complete with DEM and contours and it works good both on Basecamp and on the device (just a little slow when loading).
Can anybody help me please?
Many thanks !
