    Italia 08 GPS

    For those of you using Garmin GPS systems on the Italia 08 tour, you will be able to have the full trip, divided by day, downloaded onto your GPS prior to departure.

    However, as we all seem to use different software versions as well as NT versions this can lead to compatibility issues.

    Thus,

    Anyone using a Garmin GPS need to :

    A, download the attached route and waypoints, transfer it to your GPS, and ensure you can read the route on the GPS - then post that you have the info OK

    B, If you cannot read the file, post your model of GPS and software version i.e city navigator Europe V9


    In the coming weeks, I intend to make sure everyone with a GPS has a full set of compatable files.

    Paul, that post went wrong

    I tried to say,
    would it be possible for you to post an idiots guide to putting this on my Zumo since I.ve just bought it and haven't yet any idea.

    If it's too complex to post, don't worry I will trawl through the manual or search on line.

    thanks
    Paul

    Paul, if its anything like the 2650... plug it in to the computer... then when its on click on the file... open.... that should open mapsource... then transfer to unit ... does that make sense?

    It's very simple.

    Download the file to your DESKTOP so you can find it easily.

    Open Mapsource. The GARMIN software on your PC. If you haven't loaded it then load it from the CD in the box. The one labeled Navigator not the instruction manual CD.

    ONce you have mapsource opened in your PC. DO a File/Open to the file you downloaded to your desktop.
    Then plug in your Zumo to the PC using the USB lead. IF it is your first time then it will take a minute or two to load the drivers etc.

    Once Zumo is recognised by PC. Use the TRANSFER/SEnd to device function.
    A box will come up on the screen. It has a drop down menu for selecting the Zumo. Then a series of checkboxes. Select Waypoints and Routes.
    Click ok.

    Once completed. Disconnect the Zumo from the PC. Use the disconnect function on Windows BEFORE YOU PULL THE WIRE OUT. Then turn on the ZUMO. It will ask you if you want to transfer the data. Just follow on screen instructions.

    BINGO route loaded!

    I have Mapsource V8/2610 and it says:
    'The file cannot be read because it uses a subsequent file version.'
    Guess I have to wait for an upgrade.

    Hi Stolzy,

    Have the same equipment, got the same message. Selected for the options Help>Check for Software Updates.

    Downloaded and installed, all seems to work now.

    If your running Vista like me, the ZIP file does not extract atomatically, however, if you download direct from the site and run the ZIP it works.

    Cheers


    Richard

    Sorry CC,

    My advice was only for the 2610 and V8, not the config you have.

    Good luck

    Italia 08 GPS

    Hi Paul

    I have just tried to load the Test route and get the following message:

    "This route does not match the available maps.

    It would not follow the roads precisely do you want to continue"


    This was on a SP3 with Europe V6.

    In what version was the file created and saved???

    Cheers G

    Also got the same message in V8

    Gippo, I'm using an SP3 on V6 as well.
    Sounds like you don't have a major problem.
    I assume you got that message from the GPS. All it is saying is that your data card does not have the maps loaded for the route Paul posted.
    If you got that far it's pretty safe to say Paul's info can be read & loaded to your unit. Just try loading maps for the Midlands area onto your datacard.

    (My SP3 can get the whole route on three 128mb data cards, I'm using four to spread the maps further afield in case of detours. pm me if you want any help)

    Maps, Routes, Version & Other strange things!

    Chaps,

    To put your minds at rest.

    1. Those of you with SP3's are fully compatible with the mapping that I use -I know this as when we did Garmisch 07, I used an SP3.

    2. For SP3's you will not fit the whole route and all the waypoints onto 1 card, so you will need to get another - if you look on e-bay you can pick up the 256mb version - 1 of these was enough for the whole Garmisch trip.

    3 I author the trip in Mapsource V9, which allows me to also save the routes in older versions. However, for the routes and waypoints to be relevant, you have to have the map sets loaded - no map - no GPS understanding.

    4 I am expecting the latest map upgrade in the next few days from Garmin, so I will update all the routes, and Major Gadget (an Mapsource08 user) and I have had a discussion about general compatibility issues.

    5 The biggest problem will be with older map sets - because over time roads change. To overcome this problem, and also on newer devices to beat the dynamic re-route feature, the routes will contain intermediate way points, thus if your device re-calculates because of the roads are different, you will still pick up the next waypoint - so you will stay on route.

    6 Those of you that have had problems with error messages about compatibility, please update your Mapsource and also device software to the latest release (I'm not talking about the maps), which is a free download from the Garmin site. Bryn had to do this last year and everything works groovy afterwards.

    This is why unfortunately we need to get the GPS section going so early, so that we can overcome any little issues.

    For those of you that have GPS’s but have not checked everything out yet, please do so – just in case it’s a new problem your experiencing!

    Cheers

    Paul
