Feature Requests / Re: Waypoints on elevation profile
« Last post by fivespot on July 10, 2018, 11:21:31 AM »
I create lots of hand tracks to explore trails before trying to hike them. I use the profile tool to look at the elevation profiles. I was surprised to realize that when the cursor is in the profile, the coordinates of the current position are not shown, either in the track statistics or in the main window. If the coordinates were shown in either place, I and others could at least write them down and use them later to create waypoints. This would be a lot simpler than implementing a whole new dialog for the profile window. Currently my solution is to find the place I am trying to mark in the profile, then hold a pencil to the point on the screen where the current track marker is, them move the mouse cursor under the pencil point. Major PITA. Thanks, Jim Rhyne (very long time user of TopoFusion).

Ah, I see -- sorry I misunderstood.

To turn access to the older Terraserver/MSRmaps tiles (if you've got 'em!) you need to find your TopoFusion.ini file.  Default is:

C:\Users\Scott\AppData\Local\TopoFusion\TopoFusion.ini

and look for

UseMSRMaps=0

set it to

UseMSRMaps=1

Then they should be accessible.  Let me know if you have any issues!

Hey Scott,
What I'm trying to do is access the cached data from the old servers.  I confirmed that TF was looking in the correct location (Options>Preferences>Directory for Map Data), looking for MapsIndex.dat and Maps0-2.dat.  Under Options>Preferences>Tile Sets, no Tile Sets are displayed.  On the Toolbar, the Tileset Selector does not display the older Topo or Aerial maps.
Thanks,
Geoff

Hi there,

Unfortunately rolling back to 5.43 won't help in gaining access to any map tiles.  Everything that you have cached should be still available, regardless of what version you are running.  It may just be a matter of pointing TF to the correct map cache directory?

Most servers are operating right now -- you should be able to get MyTopo, Color, etc up there in AK. 

The skewing problem is certainly an issue up there, sorry about that.

TopoFusion Pro / Rollback to TF v5.43
« Last post by gcorth on June 29, 2018, 11:53:50 PM »
Hey Folks, just upgraded to TF 5.48 and all the prior map tiles that were downloaded are unavailable.  I know that most of the servers aren't operating, but have a cache of maps... somewhere~  Is it possible to reinstall v5.43 and gain access to them?  I'm in Alaska, and all the other sources are terrible skewed.
Thanks,
Geoff

TopoFusion Basic / Re: Create and export a map from TF to Etrex 30
« Last post by ScottMorris on May 24, 2018, 12:42:05 PM »
Hi Bill,

The custom map feature is for a smaller area than the ATR covers, for certain.  You want a .IMG (vector) map similar to the one you used for Tour Divide.

You'll need to use Mapsource and some of the free US .IMG sources in order to do this (that's what I did for the TD base map).

It's a bit involved to make sure you cover the whole thing.  Another option is to buy a DVD (or SDcard) preloaded with maps for the whole country.  That's the more expensive but simpler option

Hope that helps some.  Good luck out there this summer!

TopoFusion Basic / Create and export a map from TF to Etrex 30
« Last post by bpeschka on May 23, 2018, 09:19:59 PM »
I'm heading towards building a strip of maps to use on my Etrex 30 for the American Trail Race.  For starters, I'm working on a small area, near my house.  I use the method described in http://topofusion.com/garmin-custom-maps.php as recommended in another post, but once I transfer the .kmz file to the Custom Maps folder, and Enable it, there's no map shown.

I have a map on my gps from TD that I downloaded from somewhere.  It's an .img file and is in the top level folder e.g. H:/garmin/

Thoughts?  Can I create a map or maps for this big of a route and export to my Etrex 30?

TopoFusion Pro / Juicy Trails gone
« Last post by ScottMorris on April 16, 2018, 02:44:28 PM »

Sadly we've lost the Juicy Trails map layer.  The owner has decided to not host the tiles anymore.

I plan to look into other similar options.  Thanks for the patience, folks.
