Change the route map display line width
The Zumo 396 displays a colored line on the map when following a route. The default is a rather narrow line that is difficult to discern from all other road lines on the map. To increase the width of this line, use this procedure.
- Connect the Zumo 396 to a computer via the USB port. With a file explorer tool, navigate to
Computer\zumo 396\Internal Storage\Themes\Map.
- Copy the file in the
Garmin.kmtfto a working folder on the computer like Downloads.
- Open the copied file with a text editor like Notepad.
- Near the end of the file, change the line
<STYLE field = "MAP_TRK_CLR" scale = "1.00" >to ...
<STYLE field = "MAP_TRK_CLR" scale = "2.60" >
The "2.60" can be any number great than the default "1.00" to make the line thicker.
- Save the edited file.
- Copy the new file back to the original
Mapfolder replacing the original.
