You are suppose to convert your mp files to Garmin format (img) using a compiler such as Cgpsmapper etc.

hello. maybe this is a bit off-topic. but, i have got a problem with my garmin mobile XT. i am using htc touch diamond and the main storage is small in size, i can't put the large gmapsupp.img file in the main storage media. can you guys help me to reduce the file size to anywhere below 15MB? currently, the file size is >50MB and some are up to 80MB! PLEASEEEEEE. email me at revokulture@gmail.com . thanks in forward.
