Post  palatkik on Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:15 am

When I select the file, it opens the unlocked IMG file but displays incorrectly or just a blank screen. Using Android 4.0.3 on Samsung Galaxy S2.

Garmin Maps from the link in last reply work on my device.
They look a bit strange and are no comparison to other
OSM maps.
Some Garmin maps from other links don't work - only numbers on the map.

Cannot display Garmin IMG files Empty problem displaying Garmin map

Post  TherioN on Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:14 am

I have the same problem. That would be great, if Oruxmaps could display free vector Garmin topo maps.

Cannot display Garmin IMG files Empty A FIX for Garmin map Problems

Post  garrick.leonard on Sun Oct 14, 2012 7:36 am

Hi

The two problems I had were:
1) some map tiles (big *.img file packed with 197 top50 submaps) were not displaying: white background only.
2) some map tiles had pink lines rendered seemingly randomly over the area.
map: aus nx topo v3 by garmin (I believe problem is in original garmin map)
(I have another detailed topo map of nz that has no problems: www.gtmaps.co.nz)

The FIX.Download latest version of GMapTool.
Load in your garmin map and save it with a different name.
Use this parsed and rewritten image file on your droid.
Good Luck.

Interestingly you can use GMaptool to break map into separate files and put them on the droid in a "folder" in map directory. When viewing a low detail map such as those on openandromaps.org you can switch to maps covering the same area within oruxmaps. Thus sick maptiles can be deleted/fixed/replaced with geotiffs etc. The maps stored in base camp are tiled also and can be copied straight to microsd card without getting basecamp to do it via a gmappsup.img

Cheers

Unfortunately this didn't help me. I split unlocked topo img. with GMapTool, but it only shows blank/white tiles.

I want to report same issue, using Garmin's MapInstall to make maps I got from GPSFiledepot.com and I also tried a Garmin mapset I own. The same exact file I create from MapInstall (called "gmapsupp.img") will display OK in another GPS android app called Trimble Outdoors Navigator but I get only a blank screen when putting this map in Orux. I much prefer Orux and hope to use it! I have looked at all settings and preferences for maps trying to fix it, rebooted phone, restarted GPS, etc. I can see the file listed under "offline maps" in Orux and the map file name is shown on the main screen (with that option turned on in settings), but there is no map data displayed, just a white screen. Thank you for looking at this issue....Android 2.3.6 on a Samsung Proclaim phone.

I have sent an email with a small map file attached as created from Garmin's MapInstall program. Thanks for taking a look. As I said in my email, and will now say here, Orux looks like the best gps/mapping app for Anroid out there and compared to the others I've tried it has a much better interface. I bought the paid version today and hope you keep up the good work.

I loaded the beta and then a different, larger map I had created, and it worked, my map does display when I load it from the "offline" selection. I now need to study the rest of the Orux interface more carefully to see how the different maps interact with each other, there are some things going on I don't quite understand, but I'm glad to able to make/load my own maps. Thanks for the fix and I will look forward to the release version.
(Note to others: If you are an Android newbie like me and want to load the beta, google "how to install APK on android", it's not hard to do.)

The 5.2.1 update is working OK on my Samsung phone with the map I made in Garmin MapInstall. I didn't have to re-load the map or anything after the update. I only have 1 map that I have made (so far) with file name "gmapsupp.img" but it works OK. There are options to help Garmin maps under "settings". Look under "Settings--Maps--Garmin". It's at the bottom, scroll down. I don't know what else to suggest except try Garmin MapInstall which is the software I am using. Look for free maps of your area at gpsfiledepot.com.

The 5.2.1 didn't solve the problem for me neither. Just displays displays same old pink background with some stripes and names. I have tried two different .img files with the same result.

Hi;

The last version is the 5.2.3

It solves some problems with garmin maps, but it can not open locked/encrypted maps.
