its just a compression format like zip files. check out winrar - free it unzips them for use.

Thanks. I've been using WinZip for years (yes I actually have a registered version!!!), but I hadn't heard of WinRAR before.

Could someone please expand on this for a gumby please. I have downloaded the nsw topo maps into Ozi explorer, but ozi will not open to open the rar files. All my other maps are in .map format. I extract the files using win xp. Anyhelp appreciated. :)

Hi Saab,
WinXP won't extract rar files, without WinRar.(or other rar apps)

.rar files are just another form of file compression like .zip!

Get WinRar (http://www.rarlab.com/) ,to un-rar them, and they should extract into the .map files you're after.

cheers.

ps. I still reckon we should be using the .7z compression!.......but that's just my opinion.
