About the data: We Have split the RGMAs into 11 Garmin Custom Maps files grouped by proximity to common place names. Each image referenced in the KMZ files contain orange and brown RGMA boundaries overlaid on top of Summer 2013 color aerial photos. Also included in the KMZ images are red and black lines representing hunter walking trails, grey and black lines representing other trails as well as several types of labels. Users can preview the KMZ files in Google Earth before loading on a compatible Garmin GPS.
File Use/Instructions: These files are compatible with the Garmin GPS Custom Map format. To use these maps on your Garmin Custom Map compatible GPS, copy or save this KMZ file to the Garmin/CustomMaps folder. For further details on compatible Garmin devices refer to Garmin's Custom Map website.
Note that some Garmin GPS units will only accept 1 of these KMZ files at a time. If your Garmin is microSD compatible, and you wish to use more than one file while out hunting, you can save each KMZ file to a separate microSD card under the Garmin/CustomMaps/ folder (ex. Garmin/CustomMaps/Bemidji_Area_RGMAs_89jpgs.kmz) and replace the card in the GPS as needed. The kmz file will generally start displaying on the GPS when the scale bar in the map display is less than 0.5 miles. To navigate between RGMAs, it's recommended to use the gpx file available from the MN DNR RGMA website.
We cannot guarantee that our KMZ files will work with any or all GPS units. Check your GPS's documentation to see if your GPS supports the corresponding file type. MNDNR does not endorse one specific company, hardware product, or software product over another.
