MAD Maps for Garmin on TomTom
 
MAD Maps sells scenic routes for Garmin devices sold on Garmin website: http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/scenicroutes
It appears that you need to have a compatible and registered Garmin device in order to purchase and download them.
I've got a TomTom Rider2 and was wondering if there is any way to convert those routes to .itn format for TomTom. Has anyone done that?

Will this do it? http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&langpair=fr|en&u=http://benichougps.blogspot.com/

.itn File problems...
 
Unfortunately, the Google to TomTom conversion (or any other for TomTom) only works for 13 movements,


or way points. So, if you have more than 13 turns, you will have to create multiple conversions and switch
maps/routes on the fly. Sucks, I know...:kboom

Thanks, I'll have to try this. Now the problem is that I couldn't get any of those maps when I tried- you need to download them directly onto your Garmin device using Garmin's browser plugin- so it's a no go for me.
If anyone could spare one of their downloaded MAD maps for such experiment I'd appreciate it.

Really? I didn't realize this- I use this web tool all the time and never counted the number of waypoints on Google maps I put before converting.

That's the one I use, too.

How many waypoints would Garmin support if converting?

EZGlider 07-30-2009 11:06 PM

Garmin uses GPX and supports unlimited points (to my knowledge). And my knowledge comes from my friends with Garmins that like to give me Sh!t.
