Re: HTC touchpro with GPS capability- Where is the GPSID located

Hi Edward, you don't need Unit ID to upload a contribution. However, as this forum is largely Garmin based, contributions are expected in GDB format. You need to install Garmin Mapsource for this, read more here: Download & use Mapsource for your error reporting

And a more convenient method to install Garmin Mapsource: Free Mapsource (latest update - no need prior installation)

Thanks dv for the quick reply but will mapsource seek a unlock code for malsing maps? Sorry for the noob questions as I had not used mapsource before and hope that it has voice activated guides to supplement my failing eyesight

You're welcome Edward. For use in PC, no Unlock Codes are needed, just install Mapsource and Malsingmaps Installers (MSM-Mysin Installer (Locked), MSM-Borneo Installer (Locked)). The locked status means maps may not be transferred to device. Please visit the Download page to download them: http://www.malsingmaps.com/portal/downloads.php

Thanks dv for the prompt reply, I will need the unlocked maps and will do the necessary requirements of contributing 2 or more POI's for the codes

Thanks again,

Edward

Just to clarify, the locked map for device is meant for Garmin devices and softwares, for PDA use, you need to either install Garmin Que (free) or Garmin Mobile XT.

Meanwhile, Malsingmaps Mapking map is not locked, suffice to have Mapking license for the same region, ie. if you're already running official Malaysia Mapking map, you should be able to use Malsingmaps Malaysia Mapking map.

Good morning DVpro

Thanks for the clarification and leads on the garmin thingy but would like to stick to mapking g10 for the moment

It is locked as I had d/loaded Malsingmaps for Mapking g10 yesterday and it is asking me for the unlock code. I had been running it on trial since I d/loaded it yesterday and had grown familiar with it's settings. Hope i could get the codes from wsian soon.

Had pm him but the pm is saved in the outbox instead of in the sent folder. Any reason behind that?
