Are you sure the map size is just 1.4KB :-? The file seems corrupted.

The file is actually 35KB, the one you uploaded is 4KB, no wonder it's corrupted.

For installation into Mapsource, rename the IMG to 8-digit name convention, and install with Mapsource Mapset Manager.

For proper use with Garmin device/software, add the IMG in SendMap20, and either directly Upload Maps to GPS or Create GMAPSUPP.IMG locally, and copy & paste GMAPSUPP.IMG over to Garmin folder of device.

Are you asking was this map for Mapking? If yes, the answer is no because from it extension (*.img) was for Garmin format

Here is the Islamabad Street Map for Garmin GPS devices. It is completely routable.

We have started a similar community of mappers for Garmin devices for Pakistan at http://pkmaps.freeforums.org/

The same map can be found at http://pkmaps.freeforums.org/routable-i ... es-t7.html

The map was compiled using the free cgpmapper compiler on Mapcenter2.

The source data taken from OpenStreetMaps, MapCentre, Wikimapia and GoogleEarth was redigitized. Added more POI data and enabled routing.

The source .mp file and the compiled .img file can be found at http://mapcenter2.cgpsmapper.com/maplis ... uthor=4503

You can find a map containing all roads and POI or just simply the POI for Islamabad area.

You can copy the gmapsupp.img file from the Islamabad_Garmin_Map.zip file attached to this post straight to your devices as well.

Feel free to update the map and do let us know if you all see any issues with any portions of the map or any updates that need to be made.
