Olaf on Garmin - Adding & viewing Waypoints
Hi, been reading this site for months (been a great help) and now finally signed up.
Off to Morocco 2nd week May for 4-6 weeks. Bought all the books, maps, junk for the car, etc. Possibly suffering info overload but no doubt I'll need it all at some point (we're planning a year to Africa at end of this year).
Have a Garmin Nuvi 1400 satnav and downloaded Olaf maps into Mapsource and then onto micro SD card to insert into satnav. All fine.
However, 2 questions:
a) Satnav shows topo map (contours and tracks etc) fine but the icons on the original Olaf map only appear when the scale on the satnav is set to about 50 / 80 meters. I'd like to be able to view the fuel, camp, hotel icon when zoomed out further - any ideas?
b) I've added other waypoints from recommendations seen elswhere on the HUBB and in Chris Scott'c books etc for accommodation, rough camping spots, viewpoints, etc. Despite having added icons for each (from the Garmn selection) these appear fine in Mapsource on the laptop but only show up on the satnav as small black dots. Any ideas how i can get these icons to appear properly (and usefully)?
