You don't need tick map when receive from Device.

Hi All,
I am a newbie with (almost) :oops: zero knowledge about GPs software. I know how to use and the rest is transparent to me. Hope I can contribute something to this website and at the sametime learn new skills.
I currently own a nuvi 680.
How do I contribute to POI, track etc using my nuvi. Thank you.
Hope to get some enlightenment from the Guru here. :wink:
If there is a road, I wll travel on it. If there is no road, I will make one for myself.

Do you mean "message centre", "hair cut shops", "cafe".... =P~



yeah, massage centre & girl la ....

Uncle, if you want to collect and contribute massage centre POIs, please upload your gdb file. If not, your question has nothing to do with "How to contribute POIs & Track by using Garmin Mapsource". Please make postings that are relevant to the title.

I have deleted all unrelated posts.

Hi all I was wondering if there is any way for me to contribute using a Mac? To my understanding Mapsource is a Windows based software right?

Cheers
Dinesh

If the Mac can, you might want to contribute your tracks and POIs in GPX format. Otherwise, your POIs in csv format. The only Apple I've ever used was the Apple II. What..?

Just check Waypoints and Tracks. Uncheck others.

Bro, you need to supply for info...

Are you using a Garmin device, PDA or mobile phone?

What info are you trying to send to Mapsource from you device?

Hi AntyOng,

Thank you! I have a few (3) tracks to add and location change for the NPP around Dakota Crescent. I don't know how to attach picture to my post. Therefore I have attached the gdb file with free hand drawn tracks and (only have) police badge instead of police car.

1) From Old Airport Road into Jln Dua
2) From Old Airport Road into Blk 60 carpark
3) From Old Airport Road into Blk 62 carpark
4) Change the location of Npp



I will try to get the track log for the new tracks (Is this necessary since no road beside?)

Will update soon.

Please comment if I got any part wrong.
