Any Portable App to load maps? G7towin doesn't.
« on: April 15, 2008, 05:36:49 pm »
Hi, I'm loading Garmin City Navigator maps for the Northern Tier.  Can't fit them all on my GPSmap76CSx at once.  I'd like to take the rest on a flash drive with a portable app to load them.

G7TOWIN works for the waypoints etc but I don't see how to get it to load maps.  I am I missing something?  Is there another that would??
thanks

Hi Kathy,

You are right, G7ToWin does not do maps. A Google search for load garmin maps finds a few other programs like Sendmap. I have no experience with them, but you could check to see whether they will run without installation in Windows.

How about loading up two micro SD cards? They are cheap enough nowadays, can be swapped anywhere without a computer, and weigh even less than a memory stick. A friend just bought a 2GB one for $10.

Unfortunately, this will not work for waypoints. You still want G7ToWin and a memory stick for them.
