[mkgmap-dev] Trouble with merging IMG files (for Garmin)

From Tamas Gal tamas.gal at me.com on Thu Jul 13 15:35:37 BST 2023

Hi all,

maybe I got that wrong but I thought I can merge multiple IMG files into a single one with Mkgmap. My problem is that I need a bunch of maps and my Garmin 64s only shows 12 in the map selection. A simple solution to this limitation is merging maps ;)

Anyways, I gave Mkgmap a try but I get an error which I don't know how to interpret, since it's missing the input files but they are definitely in the folder. Do I maybe need the original OSM files as input files? In that case, the error message is probably wrong.

Here is an example where I try to merge the Hungarian and German map into a single IMG:

░ tamasgal at silentbox:~/opt/mkgmap-r4909
░ 16:29:24 > ls -alh *.img
-rw-r--r--@ 1 tamasgal  staff   126M Jul 13 16:24 otm-germany-contours.img
-rw-r--r--@ 1 tamasgal  staff    43M Jul 13 16:28 otm-hungary-contours.img
-rw-r--r--@ 1 tamasgal  staff   346M Jul 13 16:28 otm-hungary.img
-rw-r--r--@ 1 tamasgal  staff   246M Jul 13 16:29 otm-slovenia.img

░ tamasgal at silentbox:~/opt/mkgmap-r4909
░ 16:29:32 > java -jar mkgmap.jar --input-file otm-hungary.img --input-file otm-slovenia.img --gmapsupp

Any ideas?
