Maybe I had not noticed this before, but now when my 855 boots up I see something "new"? It is very hard to catch because it just shows for a second or two, but it seems to say HTTP GPSMAPPER and says to register?
Any idea where this came from? How to get rid of it?
I also have a second map showing other than the 2019.11 map.
There is a box to check or uncheck and it is only called "USA".
How do I remove this?
I do not dabble in illegal software so where could that USA map and the GPSMAPPER be from?
The "other" map is okay. there is a base map and the map that has all the detail, etc. GPSMapper is old. Not sure what it is, but the Domain is for sale.
cGPSMapper site (archived)
It is a tool for creating maps that was discontinued in 2016. The free version of the program is still available on the Internet for download, but its age clearly shows.
cGPSmapper was/is one of the map creation tools for OpenStreetMap that can be used freely on Garmin GPSrs. As Strephon pointed out, it has been mostly supplanted by other more modern tools.
I use OpenStreetMaps for travel abroad as a backup for Google Maps. It is free and does not need Internet connection.
for the explanations, but how did this Gpsmapper get on my 855?
Never used OpenStreetMap.
So I can just ignore the USA map?
There are other legal and free public domain Garmin maps that are created with cGPSmapper. e.x. maps on the GPSFileDepot
If there are public domain maps on the 855, delete them could rid of the CGSmapper message.
