Custom Garmin Edge Map Panels – Part 2: Save Map as JPG

To use a custom map on a compatible Garmin Edge the map must be in a JPG format. In my example, I’m using the Sea Gull Century map offered to the public at

Unfortunately, like many online maps this map is in a PDF format and must be converted into a JPG. This can be done with several Adobe products such as Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Acrobat Standard DC. However, if you don’t have software that can convert a PDF file, you can use GIMP a free software package at or other suitable software.

In most cases, the conversion is as simple as opening the PDF file and then saving it as JPG file.
