Create KMZ Maps with MOBAC

Unread post by mimichris »

Hello,
I made five maps (which makes the 500 maps planned) at zoom 16 of the IGN maps of France with Mobac to put on my 66sr, the quality is excellent, with the 66sr screen it's perfect.

Manufacture of KMZ for Garmin GPS:

Choose "Atlas" at the top left then "new Atlas" then "Garmin CustomMaps (KMZ)"
Set at the top right in "tools" "configuration", the "card size" to 1024.
Give your map a name in “atlas content” and “name”.

Then, in "zoom level" set the zoom level you want, at the top of the map there is "zoom level" you put the same value.

Then select a surface on the map with the left mouse button, then click on “add selection”, the number of maps must be equal to or less than 100.

Next, create the atlas.

I don't know everything about Mobac but I chose the selection of cards at random and not to exceed 100, but there is certainly another smarter method that I do not know.

Some example of a Garmin KMZ card on the 66sr:
