Hi, they do not sell what format you want, they just sell the map which can 
be used only with garmin program. there is a map activation code but this 
only unlocks the map to use with garmin on a symbian phone and talks reads 
nothing in garmin although the screen is full of texts.

Sounds like these might be in an image format rather than any coded form
which would be
needed for conversion to Loadstone.

Can you find out if Garmin would sell the map to you in a spread sheet form?

All the best,

Hi, the garmin map file's extension is img, i tried opening it with powerIso
but it says unsupported format. i have found a program called mapEdit, it
opens the file, says this not the map itself, this is a map container and
shows the maps in the img file. but cannot extract or convert it because the
map is locked.

Hi V,

If you have the maps themselves I will be happy to take a look at them and
see if they can be used. If they are locked into a Garmin program then you
may not be able to do anything with them as this is to protect the Garmin
product. However, if you have extracted them into any format I will take a
look at them and advise if they can be converted.

If you download an OSM map for your entire area - my last one had over 30,00
entries! The entire file can be converted and then you can select the points
that you want more easily. I can appreciate that extracting each point from
the OSM and other services would e very tedious and is not worth the effort.
These files are very big and it is hard to extract the points one at a time.
After conversion each entry is reduced to only nine fields and then it is
easier to manage the points individually.

Let me know what you want to do.


All the best,

Cearbhall

Hi, i need to convert some maps to loadstone  format or to a format
convertable to loadstone such as csv etc. i have original garmin and route66
map files but could not succeed converting them in any way. actually there
are a few programs to open them but the maps are locked and cannot be used
with pc. they only can be used when the programs installed to the phone. i
am not sure if this is an illegal thing but i wish to use these data with
loadstone. because i do not have any maps for the area to use with loadstone
and using geocoder and extracting from nokia maps and route66 is a very long
tedious process.
