OK, this is going to be a dumb question, obviously I have overlooked something. I have successfully downloaded Bobcat and Map Manager to my Mac Air, and Map Converter to my PC. I converted and transferred and installed CN2008 and can view it on Bobcat. But, I can't seem to select maps to transfer to the 2610?
Help would be appreciated.

You should now have City Navigator North America NT.tgz or similar on the mac?

If so, open that with the Garmin MapInstall app, which should then create a gmapi file that Bobcat can read.

I did that. Bobcat seems to be able to read CN2008 now, but I can't select individual maps or sections to install on the 2610, like I can on the PC software.

Any way of changing the icon for a whole load of imported entries from a GDB file?

I've imported a list of campsites in France, and they all have a green dot as the symbol, but I'd prefer them to come in as the tent symbol for obvious reasons As there are 414 of the brutes to change, a mass-change option would be cool

Bobcat does not Install maps to GPS units.
You need to use Garmin's MapInstall to do that.

GarminMac stated that the ability to transfer maps is one thing that will be built into Bobcat in future releases.

Just use automator.

We have been discussing the reasons why a route created in Bobcat would be much different than one computed on your device. Slight differences in route calculation may be expected due to some minor changes in the route calculation code on your device compared to Bobcat, but you shouldn't be seeing any major differences. If you are seeing major differences with the routes in Bobcat compared to your device please use the "Report Issues to Garmin" option in the Help menu to let us know the details.

GarminMac, Just wondering where can we download the manual for mapsource and/or bobcat.
Seems like the last version on the size is from July05, since then bunch of features were added, and even so that manual has only the basic features.

Where can we get one with all the "advanced" features ?

Thanks
Christian

First, open up Bobcat. Then open automator and choose record in the top right of the window. Then open Bobcat back up and do the process you want and let it record one "cycle" of the process you want to accomplish (i.e. changing the symbol of one waypoint). Then you can just duplicate that process however many times you need it done and save it then run it.

Ah, is that a Leopard feature? I'm still in Tiger-land, and don't have a record button

Many Thanks!

First off, many thanks for not forgetting about us Mac users!
I've been following this thread, and others on the Zumo Forum in regards to Bobcat. Question is, is there any kind of time table, or do you have any ideas when the next release will be out? Or what the final release date might be?

Please correct me if Im wrong, but as of now, there is no way to "Stitch" ride segments together so you end up with one continuous route correct?

Heck. I have trouble with this in regular ol' MapSource.

We are planning to release a new beta version of Bobcat by early next week. Some of the new features in this version will include the ability to create custom smart folders, delete track points, join tracks, integration with MapInstall to allow you to transfer maps to your device, and many bug fixes.
