GM Feature Type to Garmin Build-in Feature Type

Is there a table for the complete mapping list, I can't find it in the online or PDF manual?

While in the Search Vector Data window, is it possible to implement sort by Attribute/Item, for example, the list can sort by "Feature Type", CLASS or TYPE , etc.

    There isn't a mapping listed on the web site anywhere, although I'm sure I generated one on the forum somewhere. I'll have to see if I can find it or re-generate it.

    You can't currently sort in the Search Vector dialog, but that is a high priority item on our todo list to hopefully get done soon.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, the mapping list is very useful and required for those who want to export polish map format file, suggest to include it in the manual.

    Also, can GM allow user define zoom levels for a particular imported attribute/item and allow to pick a particular attribute/item for label use?

    I found the link to the list of built-in types and their Garmin types at http://globalmapperforum.com/forums/technical-support/2834-area-type-not-correct.html#post5292 .

    If you check the User's Manual section on Polish MP export (http://globalmapper.com/helpv11/Help_MenuBarAndToolBar.html#file_menu_export_polish_mp) it specifies how to customize the zoom level used for features using a MP_BIT_LEVEL attribute. You can also change the default zoom level and type mappings of built-in types and your own custom types.

    You can choose which attribute(s) to use for labeling by opening the Control Center, selecting a layer, pressing Options, then setting up the labeling.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
