New BaseCamp (version 4.7.0) and MapInstall (version 4.2.0) are not able to transfer registry based
maps into the GPS device. Use the GMAP button after MAKE to produce maps by MapTk or download the GMAP
version of the Südtirol map.
The GMAP folder must be copied or unpacked into the Garmin map folder. The folder in Windows is
'c:\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\GARMIN\Maps\'. This folder is normally hidden.
An alternative solution is to store the GMAP anywhere in the system and add a link to this folder in
the garmin map folder. An other alternative is to convert any map in IMG format to the GMAP format.
One of the tools to do that is MapTk: Menu 'GMAP' -> 'Convert to GMAP format'. The source and the
destination folder must be chosen.
MapTk will never request personal data.
A random cookie is used until end of session.
