Garmin Mobile PC : Assert failed at uni_cnvt.c : 326 in PocketNav with error 0

Hope the knowledgeable folks on here can help.

I currently use the older Que software on a Windows Mobile 2003 PDA on my snowmobile as well as Garmin Mobile PC in the truck. I have snowmobile trail maps for both Ontario and Quebec that are transparent and appear fine on the PDA. However, when I try to a mapset for MobilePC with either of these maps, the program generates an error on loading and quits.

The error message is ERROR: Assert failed at uni_cnvt.c : 326 in PocketNav with error 0

These maps are known to work on many different Garmin GPSrs including the 60 Csx, 76 Csx, Oregon, etc, so I do not believe there is an issue with the maps, per se.

I suspect that it has to do with the change in formats from the City Navigator products and the new NT format, but I am not sure.

I have tried to use the MapConvert, but was unable to pick up the converted maps in Mapsource.

Thanks, and I hope someone has some suggestions.

Here is a screenshot of the error

I don't believe it has anything to do with the NT format change. MetroGuide Canada v5 works fine with Mobile PC and it is in the old format. Are you using the precompiled image files you already have for XT or compiling new ones using MapSource and transferring to Mobile PC?

I am compiling new ones using Mapsource. The PDA is not running XT, but rather the older version of Que. I like the interface better on Que (similar to the differences between nRoute and Mobile PC). I can send along the installer for the Ontario Trail Map, if you like. It is about a 2 MB file.

That doesn't mean anything as far as how well they might work in Mobile PC. Mobile PC is more like a Nuvi. Does anyone have the maps working on Nuvis rather than the handheld outdoor devices?

Do you have a link to it?

Unfortunately, no. It came from a snowmobiling forum and you need to fill out the (free) registration to get to it. I can email it or is there a place that I can upload it here?

Great! I didn't realize I could add a .zip to a post.

Here is the installer.

Unfortunately, I get the same message as you both under XP and Win7 when Mobile PC decides to respond at all. Must be something in the map files that GMPC doesn't like.

Thanks for your time!

I was hoping that you would have better luck.

Great! Now I have another problem. In trying to test yesterday, my 10x would only come up in MPC with a Unit ID of "UNKNOWN", and a message that the maps were locked. Contacted Garmin and we tried a couple of things unsuccessfully, and then he suggested uninstalling and reinstalling the software. I now have done that and still have the same results

Take the battery out of the 10x and wait a minute or two. Reinstall the battery, start the 10x and try again.

Tried that. Left it out all night. No change.

Hmm, I had that problem last week and just pulled the battery for a couple minutes. I did put it on charge when I put it back in though. I don't think the 10x looses its brains, it just gets stuck in NMEA mode which won't allow transfer of the necessary info.

If you have nRoute, you might see if it can talk to the 10x. As far as I know, those are the only two programs that can switch the 10x to PVT. You would have to assign it a COM port first though as nRoute doesn't do Bluetooth.

I tried that, too. nRoute will only find it if I connect through Gpsgate. Which means that it is the Gpsgate registration that it is using not the GPS's.

I will try leaving the battery out for a bit and then connecting via a USB cable to charge it and power it up that way.

Fingers crossed.
