Re: Open OSM Images in Mapsource

Thanks, but the above method doesn't work on my system. (Windoze 7) I get a DOS box flash up and disappear quickly, followed by "Convert Failed" message box. You don't need to do half of what Geodes posted. Sorry Geodes. Here is a nice step by step on how to do it. It also includes pics. http://www...

Re: Walking Papers

That looks very interesting mtrax. Just put 3 maps into the queue to give it a try. The only problem is the queue is been held up by a failed map by the looks of it. Hopefully it will get sorted soon

Walking Papers

A interesting website that allows you create print out copies of the OSM street maps. Just zoom into the area of interest, select your options for your map and download the PDF for printing out. Easy

I think all you have to do is copy each .img file into the Garmin directory on the SD card. That's for the Oregon

Re: Sat-nav devices face big errors as solar activity rises

The last solar max was in 2001. This was when I started caching. I still have the same problems finding caches now days as I had back then. I also placed my first cache back then. The coordinates are still fine today. I can't see it being a problem.

Garmin in their wisdom have changed the unlcok code algorithms (deliberately??) to stop third party maps to be unlocked and used wi...
