Send Map to GPS Command

If your Garmin GPS receiver supports Custom Maps, the Send Map to GPS command in ExpertGPS can send any map or aerial photo to your GPS so you can use it to determine your exact location in the field.

To send a custom map to your Garmin GPS, do the following:

  1. View a map.
  2. On the GPS menu, click Send Map to GPS.

The Send Map to GPS dialog will appear, allowing you to customize the size and scale of the custom map.

Click Send Map to create the custom map and save it to your GPS.

Click Send Map to save the image. The Save As dialog will appear. Select the image type in the Save as type: list. If you checked Calibration File, a worldfile or map calibration file will automatically be created in the same location as the image file.
