    Hi all (cross posted in the NZ forum too - hope that's okay)

    Couple of things:

    1. How do i contact the admin at NZ O GPS? I'm already registered but under an old email address and so now can't access my password etc for logging in.

    which leads to question 2 as I have now uploaded the latest version of the project to work on my Garmin 2610 in conj. with MapSource NZ and i was trialling it today on a trip to Greymouth in the car for work and it doesn't show any roads - just my route....what am i doing wrong?

    It does mention something at the start of the route that:

    "This route does not match the available maps! It will not follow the roads precisely. Do you want to recalculate it? Yes, recalculate. No, use it anyway"

    is this the cause of my not seeing the roads?

    Do i need to copy the newly downloaded NZ Open maps to my 2gb CF card in the GPS and if so, how?

    Cheers all! Want to get this sorted before the TT2000 this weekend!

    Shaggie,
    I are you are pulling the maps down from OpenStreetMaps ?
    http://openstreetmap.org/

    If you are - there are some links on that site to pull the correct maps for loading onto your GPS. I did it a while ago for my Zumo, but can't recall the exact process or were I found the link on the site, but I did manage to get it work. I'll have a hunt around and see if I can find anything - if these are the maps you're talking about!
