Hi

1. a bug
I managed to pu Gooogle maps in Map sources XML and set MaxZoom to 19

<MinZoom>0</MinZoom>
<MaxZoom>19</MaxZoom>

but Navimapper shows the slider bar up to only 18.
Is this a bug ? or am I missing something?


2.sqlite map converter.
I used mobile atlas creator 1.7.0 and created some maps for Bigplanet sqlite
like "Hong Kong.sqlitedb"
Can I convert it to .nmap file?

3.use another map settings
I also used gMapMapker(MgMaps) and created .mgm files can I also convert this to .nmap file?
I'm not sure it's open format. but I hope to use it's configuration file. since it supports polygon area. (download from
mapcacher.com

modifiying/generating .nmap files

Hi hdaackda,
I don't know a direct solution for your problem(s), but there is a small python script, which shows how to manipulate .nmm files and if you look inside and know a bit about programming, you can easily use it as a base for an own program, that does what you are looking for.
Look here:

Greets,

excellent! I was considering buying a Nokia phone for the offline maps but NaviComputer was the answer I was looking for!

Thanks a lot, works great on Windows 7 64bits and HTC HD2.

I haven't tried the GPS yet but just being able to use offline maps on my phone is a life and money savior. No need of any data plan!

Cheers

still like it

hence my Android is on repair;
had to pull out my old XDA/Diamond.

On Android I'm using endomondo for tracking,
also on wm6.5 there is/was a version of endomondo.
But endomondo just crashed every view minutes on my wm6.5

NaviComputer is what I used years ago - and now again.

Still like the offline maps.
If somebody knows about something simmilar to NaviComputer
for Android - please let me know about ;)
Also a port to Android of NaviComputer would be a nice thing.

(sorry for "no beer" but PayPal is a no-go for me)

Many thanks for any help on this. ATB

    NaviComputer v0.96


    NaviComputer is a GPS mapping and offroad navigation/tracking software designed for windows mobile devices.

    What makes NaviComputer outstanding is the ability to view maps offline, so there is no need for internet connection or dataplan when you are on a trip.
    Maps can be easily downloaded from various online map sources like OpenStreetMap either with the bundled PC software “NaviMapper” or directly with NaviComputer on the mobile device. Maps are saved as single, easy to handle and space-saving files.

    NaviComputer also allows you to track your movement, display information such as distance travelled, speed or elevation profile and save your tracks in the common gpx format. Gpx-files with tracks, routes and waypoints / POI can be imported as well, so for example you can follow imported tracks on the map.

    Device Requirements:
    - Windows Mobile 6 operating system
    - WVGA, VGA, QWVGA or QVGA touch display

    Ok guys, I will try to fix this Windows 7 issue. I hope I will find the problem (without actually having Win7)

    If you can give me symbols for the desktop version, I can try to debug into it and see where it gets stuck. Unfortunately, without symbols, it's almost as hard to do as without Windows 7:)) I could decompile the application, but that's too much effort:)

    Regarding protecting yourself against Google Maps User Agreement, sorry, I don't know what to tell you. All I know is that when I was researching the subject, I saw in a few places, that Google Maps doesn't allow you to cache their maps, Microsoft does, that's why they have a lot of corporate clients using their APIs.
    And if you will stop distributing desktop version of the software, then your mobile version will become more or less useless, cause you can never get the maps into it:-(

    This post is a question
    The Navi computer program is the best I have used so far THANKS .
    However, I tried to use it with an external BT antenna, it always defaults to internal GPS antenna.
    How can I select the com port, to use Navi computer, with an external BT antenna.
    My TomTom program allows me to select the BT com port and it automatically closes internal GPS and opens bluetooth GPS.
    My HTC P3650 Touch cruise (polaris), is equiped with WM 6.1
    I have searched the net and found a reg hack in navicomputer blog/?p=14
    I think they are for other models and did not work for my HTC touch cruise P3650, Polaris.
    Is there any body who could help me.

    Use GPSMOD and then set the external COM port for BT receive as priority in GPSMOD setup, you have to put value as 0 for it to have high priority, that causes your BT device to be used than internal.
    Another easy method would be to switch OFF phone function and leave bluetooth ON, that would naturally make your BT device to be chosen, but it's not recommended

    png2nmap-converter and nmap-modifier-tool

    Hi starbright_,
    to your second wish: I don't think, that it is a good idea to use .png-tiles stored in a directory structure on the mobile, but this is a matter I leave to the programmer of NaviComputer.

    But there is a small tool to convert *.png and *.jpeg from directory structure to .nmap - database format. Originally created for the use of NaviComputer together with Linux (cause NaviMapper as the .nmap-creating tool only was available for Windows), this tool is really doing what you asked for: converting tiles to nmap. Look at my post #1076 in this thread ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=6977980&postcount=1076 ) You need a python interpreter to use it, so if you don't have it already, go here: http://docs.python.org/using/index.html and look for the chapter "Using python on ..." for your operating system.

    At the moment there is no conversion back from .nmap to .png, because I had no need for that, but if you have a little knowledge on programming it is very easy to modify the python script to do that. If you have any questions, donn't hesitate to ask me (u.dahms(at)arcor.de).

    In the meantime I developed another tool for manipulating .nmap-files. It has no GUI and is only terminal-oriented, but nevertheless easy to understand and perhaps can give you some more idea on how to program a tool for your own needs. Type "nmt --help" to get advice for usage. Perhaps you will find some useful functions already without modifying. For example there is an option to extract a tile from the .nmap database to .png/.jpeg file.

    Regards,
    uwe347

    NEW VERSION: I changed the name to 'nmm', because it is an .nmap-modifier now and very flexible. Sorry that I don't have a howto or readme yet. Call 'nmm --help' to get some advice.
    NEW VERSION: Now also supports bing map and bing satellite. Elaborated README with howto and detailed description of all options added.
