GPS Maps
Beckett, it would be interesting to have a GPS screen shot of one of your completed maps, if you happen to have one, just to see how it works in practice. (To save screen shots from your unit you could use Garmin xImage. It can be downloaded gratis at http://www.garmin.com/ximage/ ). There are in fact some points in your explanation that remain pretty vague. You seem to suggest that it is possible to superimpose a section of the imported SMC contour map on a corresponding calibrated map within oziExplorer, then to add some of the calibrated map detail to the contour map (using drawing tools?), and finally to save the overlaid contour map for onward transfer from MapSource to the GPS. Indeed, oziExplorer is useful for many mapping purposes. You can certainly use it to join maps, end-to-end. But I see no reference to any functionality that would allow you to use it to layer two maps or to use drawing tools to trace the "polygons and polylines" you speak of. (I would welcome any correction on that point.) But even if this is possible, to use the contour map accurately within oziExplorer it would have to be to scale. How do you calibrate it, then, and adjust it to the other map beneath, since it has no grid lines to facilitate this task and the 10m contours on this map are notional ("guesstimated")? Even small discrepancies between the contour map and the calibrated map could translate into notable discrepancies on the ground afterwards. I can think of several other possible sticking points as well. As far as I can see, the "relatively simple" process you speak of must have a number of hidden secrets if it is working for you.
