You need the .mp files - easier to work with ... the .img files have too much processing done to them that you would need to undo.

You neded the two (or more) maps to have the same layers - both the 'zoom level' and the ranging thing set excactly the same other wise you get blank bits - on your 'blank map' try changing the level of view (control then the number - 0 for the bottom)

You are going to spend days on this .. once you accept that you'll be fine.

Ther is a yahoo group on 'map authors' ... could be of use to you.

Free map of Ukraine
You install to c:\garmin\ukrajina\*.*
Be carefully - path must be accurate!
Run ukrajina.reg
If you put files to other pass, Mapsource will death. But if you clear added key from register, MapSource will be OK.

Any updates on those Ukraine links? They seem to be dead.

And anyone have anything on Russia?
