Clicking "where to" or "view map" in Garmin Mobile PC does nothing.
Clicking "view map" in garmin mobile pc does nothing. In fact it appears to hang.
I downloaded the nz map from mapcenter2 then ran Mapsource to send the maps etc to the device.
It all appears to work as I can see the name of the map in garmin.
I even used Mapsource to receive the maps etc from the device i.e garmin mobile pc.

Also unlocked the maps as well
My gps is setup in the garmin (has 4 green bars lit up)

Any ideas?

Hi sloanie,

:welcome: to Laptop GPS World.

A week passed without any reply. It seems none of us can think of a possible solution . Have you managed to correct it in the mean time?

Sometimes MapSource can mess up when it's compiling a mapset to transfer. Whenever I encounter unusual problems right after transfering a mapset to my other Garmin device I usually just run MapSource and transfer it again. The second time I try it I usually make it a point not to do anything else on the computer while MapSource is compiling and transfering.

Thanks for the help guys. I got it going. Basically I was installing the wrong maps

That's do it, all right.

Glad you got it working and thanks for updating us.

I had a similar problem but figured out it was because I had no Basemap in the GarminMobilePC folder.

So I've renamed a copy of my working UK mapset from City Navigator and that seems to work but takes a while - doesn't show immediately.

Does anyone have (or know where I can get) a real basemap .img file from to drop into the folder?

The file I need is called gmapbmap.img I think.

Got everything else working on my eee901, including my bluetooth TomTom GPS device

All help appreciated - Dayzee
Solved my prob anyway - another poster said that the map packs normally have a base map included, and indeed, I found an img file With the name of the map pack I have (City Navigator Europe 2008) in the map folder.

So I put it in the GarminMobilePC folder and renamed it gmapbmap.img and Voila!!! All sorted!!

Just posting in case anyone else has this prob
