Malfreemaps on Garmin-Asus A10 guide
Yes, I know. This is indeed one of the most called for guide by Garmin-Asus A10 users. I have been receiving contacts, comments and posts on how to achieve this. Well, you asked for it, here it is for you ;)
So, first of all, I hope you guys are already familiar with Malfreemaps. If you still are not, then I suggest you get some understanding about what is Malfreemaps here.
Now, since Garmin-Asus uses the similar engine with that of their GPS hardwares available in the market, it is possible to support third party maps on it just like how you can do it on your GPS devices. In fact, thanks to Garmin, the process is rather simple.
First of all, you need to extract the maps images from the malfreemaps application. This is already shown on Malfreemaps website, so I will not explain how to get it done here.
To install the Maps, follow these steps:
- On your SD card (yes, it uses SD card), create a folder called “GARMIN”
- Extract the maps from the application in .img format and name them as GMAPSUPP, GMAPSUPP1, GMAPSUPP2, etc.
- Copy the maps files into your GARMIN folder so the final destination looks like /SDCARD/GARMIN/GMAPSUPP.img
- What? Need another step? That’s all you need to do. No go and have fun with your new Garmin maps ;)
When you load your Garmin Maps on your A10, you will immediately see the changes.
