Using ArcMap files in Garmin MapSource
Do you know if there is a way to convert an ArcMap .mxd file into a Garmin MapSource .mpc file?
Mapping Center Answer:
You can use the GPSi extension in ArcMap to download points or tracks from/to a Garmin™ GPS unit. Download it from: http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=12749. The functionality for this script includes:
- Download Waypoints
- Download Tracks
- Upload Waypoints
This is a document I found online that describes the procedures step-by-step: http://www.uhh.hawaii.edu/~sdalhelp/docs/ht_gpsi.pdf. I don’t have a Garmin unit so I can’t test it out myself, but it looks pretty straightforward!
Hope this helps!
