Converting to ADm file format for Gamin
#1
Greetings,

I tried to send this info via email to support@routeconverter.de but it kept getting rejected so I am posting here.

Garmin apparently supports another file format for it’s fixed mount GPS chartplotters that are frequently used for recreational boating here in the US. I have the GPSMAP 540 which has the ability to load Routes, Waypoints and Tracks from an SD card into the gps unit. I am able to convert Google Earth files into .gpx and Garmin .gdb files but they do not load into the GPS. Garmin has told me that you need the .ADM file for this.


What’s odd is that when using Trip and Waypoint Manager from Garmin it creates folders on the SD card like this

Garmin\UserData
Garmin\GPX

In the UserData folder it places the ADM file and in the GPX folder it places a GPX file. I will be on my boat tomorrow to test this out but I am wondering if it would be possible for RouteConverter to produce the ADM file which would save me the step of having to run Garmin’s Trip and Waypoint Manager software?


Thanks
TC

Hi Tony,

I received and already replied to your email. Did you get my reply?

Please send me some examples auf .adm files and I'll have a look whether it's feasible to create them by extending RouteConverter.

Greetings,

Sent some files via email. Let me know if you don't see them in the next day or so.

Hi Tony,

the userdata.adm you've sent me is binary coded, i.e. quite impossible to reverse engineer and hard to implement with documentation. Do you have documentation? And programming skills? I'd help where I can if you decided to implement it but it's unlikely I'm going to do it. Sorry.

Thanks for taking a look.
