Garmin MapSource installer released

Posted by Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason on 19 September 2009 in English (English)

I finally finished the Garmin MapSource installer I blogged about in June. It's a program aimed at distributors of Garmin maps who can easily zip it up along with their maps to support installation via MapSource on Windows.

Here's what it looks like currently:

And this is the installed map in MapSource:

It works for me but it could still use some work. So I'm asking people to test it out.

Please download this installer to install my map of Iceland into MapSource. I've done this in a virtual machine with Windows XP but I haven't used MapSource to install it to a Garmin device.

If you're a Garmin map distributor I'm interested to know if this program is sufficient to suit your purposes. If not then I want to know why. Maybe I can add whatever features you need to support.

Your work looks great, but unfortunately is the download link is no longer up to date. For your current Iceland map also you seem to use a different installer (just one large exe file). Can the current installer downloaded somewhere?
