|MOBAC .. As you may know, one of
the powers of the Magellan GPS series is the ability to make your own maps. In the
Triton GPS Series some users used a program named TRITONRMP. Unfortunately this
program does not work on the new Explorist X10 Series. So we would like to
direct you to an excellent program named the Mobile Atlas Creator.
Mobile Atlas Creator (formerly known as TrekBuddy Atlas Creator) is an open source (GPL) program which creates offline atlases for GPS handhelds and cell phone applications like TrekBuddy, AndNav and other Android and WindowsCE based applications. Additionally individual maps can be exported as one large PNG image with calibration MAP file for OziExplorer. As source for an offline atlas Mobile Atlas Creator can use a large number of different online maps such as OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, Microsoft/Bing Maps, Yahoo Maps and many more online map providers.
The program can create offline atlases for a large number of different (mobile) applications and GPS handhelds including:
* GPS Sport Tracker
It also allows you to:
* Prepare atlases consisting of multiple layers,
different map sources map resolutions (zoom levels)... [NOTE: We suggest levels levels 20,
17, 14 & 12]
By default Mobile Atlas Creator uses up to 512 of RAM. Additionally free disk space is required: Downloaded tiles are cached in the system temp directory and addionally tiles are cached in the tile store (local database).
You can download MOBAC from this site but you should visit the MOBAC website at http://mobac.dnsalias.org/
