We talked about using GMapTool to combine multiple maps into one mapset file for Garmin GPS earlier on. This article is about the reverse, which is to split the combined mapset file back to the original files which can be opened with Garmin MapSource application.
- You need to have the mapset file (eg. gmapsupp.img). I'll use the mapset file of MalSingMaps NT 2009.30 to show you how to do it. Click here for more information about MalSingMaps NT 2009.30.
- You need to have GMapTool, which you can download here.
- You need to have cGPSmapper, which you can download here. The free version can be used for this purpose.
- If you want to have MapSource too, you can download here.
Under the Files section of GMapTool, select the mapset file by clicking on Add Files.
Then, you must specify the full path of your installed cGPSmapper in the Options section.
Click the "Split all" button when you are done. Make sure there is no error and the process completed successfully with a "Done!" message.
To install the map for MapSource, run the install.bat script in the output directory.
Now you should be able to open the map in MapSource.
