You tried it in firefox/chrome

Do you have mapsource on the PC?
Or basecamp?

Just take the Garmin version on the allroad site. Under the tab Garmin, you see:

04 Oktober 2011

and install it, but you must have mapsource on the PC!!!!!!!!

You can get mapsource for free, if you first install basecamp and then the update for mapsource

I have work together with the man behind allroadmap, so I know about the mkgmapstyle he used for rendering the allroad garmin map.

I know, need some finetuning, mostly on the points and polygon.
But ways are more important.

You see the typ we used: unpaved roads are GREEN. They pop out on the map ;-)

Does not matter, i gave you the links. Fortunately.
You can install it on your PC and see how it looks like.

Think, that a lot of people have have a Garmin Device for outdoor activity.

After several years mapsource, i bought a device too.
And have allroadmap on my motorcycle.

A another thing is that you also can install the free OPENMTBmap for your area. Also using OSM data.
And see how that looks like. Read this website!!!!!!!!

Also you can use OSM world routable to install use firefox/chrome for this webpage.

What do you want to make, a online version or a version for on the PC/tablet and GPS.

What important is knowing the roads, who are closed for ADV.

(Farnsworth) Good news everyone! (/Farnsworth)

The Motor Vehicle Use Map for the GWNF has been updated. Of immediate utility is the fact that public road labels arent obscured anymore. Makes those maps more useful!

Bad news is that Im still working on a renderer. Having some issues related to my cheap hardware, but i did buy a relevant domain name.

Riding season has started here, but my usual riding buddies are AWOL so i cant really run off on my own to do more mapping. Hoy.

My buddy (on a GSA) and I (on a Tenere) will be hitting the trail on and off road from Richmond to Sperryville and down to Peaks of Otter (South Pedler Trail area) and back to Richmond October 15-17. Nothing too challenging, as I am a dirt novice. We are planning to hit some of the fire/forestry roads, etc found in this thread. It has been incredibly helpful.
I have been riding street for about 25 years and am still quite new to the adventure thing. Had a DR650 and liked it a lot, however, didn't really have the time to ride two different bikes. So, I sold the DR and my Blackbird and now am in love with my Tenere. Plan to hit some of the TAT next year on our cross country retirement ride. ADVrider is chocked full of so much info, it is hard to wade through it all!

Anyone wanting to join us in October, sound off!

My brother has basically given up on riding... and my riding buddy JUST now got his bike going. Soooo... I haven't ridden trails at all this year. But I'm looking forward to getting some in before the snow falls. :-)

Have been still working on mapping stuff... May be sharing a little tool in a few weeks. Nothing crazy.
