How do I open rar files, I'm not a computer boffin, if it's software I need to download I will have to do at home as my corporate pc is locked down. I guessing when I get a GPS I will be able to load the file i.e. I'm interested in the Simpson desert file.

Gday Kelvin,
If you got to the NSW Topo Maps download thread and read the little into there it says something like " You will need Winrar to view these files. For those of you who don't have it click HERE" ......Click on the "HERE" and it will take you to a page where you can download it for free.

Hope that helps..

I realise that it's an old thread, but for the cheapskates among us..........
7Zip...........I only ever use it, unless I "have" to use WinRar, on the odd occasion.
But 7z definitely ended my reliance on, the ever intrusive, WinZip!


7zip is the way to go, except for some WinRar files :confused: (consipiracy) :rolleyes:
