Thanks for link - looks good and just trying demo now.

Heading on this thread should probably be "Raster maps converted into Garmin format". OziExplorer is only one program that uses raster maps. Also Ozi specific format (OZF) and ecw format are not supported (not in demo version anyway). You also need a raster map with a "world file" which is a calibration file. OziExplorer calibration *.map files are not supported.

Cheers

Michael do you want the honor of placing a MOAGU link in the Program Register thread? I have also created a thread for MOAGU Software Help

Looks like an interesting program. Could you post a sample map when you have made one Explorer? I see it's $20 until the 30/4 but these no way to buy it at the moment :confused WTF

Will try - my first attempt appeared to have failed..but Im suppose to be working so its a bit hard....certainly went through all the process of creating a map in slick fashion - just end result didn't seem to work. Will try a simpler, smaller map and see what happens.

I have not purchased but if you run the program it has a "Buy it Now" function that automatically connects to the internet and allows payment with credit card etc....

GregI haven't downloaded and tried it out yet. I just did a full reinstall of the OS and still installing stuff from the backups.
