    Disclaimer first - I'm new to gps mapping and have only used Mapsource for one day. I don't actually have a gps other than the one in my phone.

    Anyways, the issue is I'm heading to Morocco and would like to use the Olaf maps on my phone gps (Nokia N95 8gb) which has Garmin Mobile 5.0.20 installed (I will have paper maps too btw).

    Trying to open the maps in Mapsource and transferring doesn't work because the phone isn't an actual Garmin gps and isn't detected.

    Neither will it work with Img2Gps - I can use the 'create file' option and copy over the resulting .img but it lacks all the town and road labels, although the actual roads and tracks do display.

    I've also tried GpsMapedit to export to an .img file. However, when I try this I have to change the Levels/Zoom and this loses detail. If I continue anyway, export to .img and copy over to the phone, I get the same problem as with Img2Gps (losing the town and road names).

    Has anyone ever tried anything like this or would you have any suggestions as to how to get the Olaf tracks to an .img or suitable Garmin Mobile format without losing the labels ?
