  • Update Full version
  • Added info to the installation menu:
    An alternative way to install the map under Windows is to use the gmap (Mac) version (OpenFietsMap (Mac).tgz). This is a new approach that Garmin uses to install the maps. Big advantage is that the map details are not longer kept in the windows registry, but only copied in a default Garmin map. Disadvantage is that this doesn't work with older Mapsource versions.

    Unpack OpenFietsMap (Mac).tgz/OpenFietsMap (Mac).tar. Move the OpenFietsMap (BNL).gmap from the OpenFietsMap (BNL).gmapi folder to the default Garmin map folder. The location of this folder depends on your Windows version.
    In Vista or W7 this is C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\Maps or C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\GARMIN\Maps or in XP c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\garmin\maps. Uninstall the old version first (remove the gmap) or by uninstalling it if it is installed on the old way with the setup.exe in the windows register (step 3).

    JaVaWa GMTK
    is a programm that can help you installing the map in the right folder.JaVaWa GMTK enables you to install these maps. It will check that no existing map will be overwritten, and after installing new maps, JaVaWa GMTK will perform a check for possible file errors and conflicts with other maps.
