How this works.

With mapsource ------I put all the tracks in Mapsource that I wanted to make the map image with.
I saved it as a .gpx file---------------GPX2img only works with .gpx files---------not .gdb

Then close mapsource-------GPX2img will not work with mapsource open.

Then I opened my GPX2img program--------and loaded that .gpx file I saved into it.

Then hit convert.

Now open mapsource------in the map pull down menu with all your other maps will be listed another map called
"GPX2img Map"

Now you can load that map image into your gps-----------along with other maps you have in mapsource if you like.

You need to load them all at once------not individually.
