Custom Overlays Nuvi 2797

 

I am attempting to overlay a series of slightly shaded and transparent polygons built in Google Earth Pro (or any other method i can find) to represent geographic boundaries of Districts/Fire Zones for fire services. Some areas of the county, the boundaries are not linear and as such from a GPS perspective a semi-transparent overlay could help units in the field more quickly determine jurisdiction or when other district units should respond.

The Nuvi 2797 is supposed to support custom maps, but so far I have not found either a format or a location in the file structure stored on the unit that supports this.

In short, how can i make a KML file or some other format readable as a map layer on a Nuvi 2797 assuming it is possible. If so, what would I use to install it since Basecamp/Express/Windows Explorer have not produced a working option.

Use KML as a source for an overlay map

I attempted to send you on email using your contact info and it was returned as undeliverable.
