This should actually go to a wishslist.

It would be excellent if there is a script to fetch google / msn live maps based on the co-ordinates and generate the files required by trekbuddy. GPSWatch guys are having one for their platinum version software. Doing this would increase the penetration of trekbuddy to common users Smile

Once again, thanks for a great job!

I got a Perl script off the internet somewhere that can fetch a set of Google Maps tiles, but no automagic to calibrate the whole map yet.

I do not know how GPSWatch guys do it, but I think it would be best to reuse original javascript code to calibrate the map (ie. convert the coordinates of the map's corner tiles (which are in pixels) to latitude/longitude). And that's what I'm not sure how to do right now - to use javascript from command line...

You're not the only one that's interested Wink

I've made some custom maps, but it's not easy. I even have to switch OS, as I use GIMP on linux to make the small PNG files, and Map Calibrator on Windows to calibrate the map and uploading the files using my phone software Confused

Hi my online name is RageRiot so call me that

I'm really confused but very Eger to Try this out on my k750.

I havn't a clue how to get a map and all this calibrating stuff, it would be briliant if I could just download a map for my city and away I go but I gather you can't right now.

I live in manchester in the UK and I would be Very greatful if some one could explain how to get a map for the whole of my city.

Apologies if everything has been posted on these forums already, I either dont understand it or can't see it

Thanks in advanced.

RageRiot

I've spent the weekend trying to figure out just this ... I ended up writting a little perl script which fetched a series of images from google, did the lat/long math and generate the map/set files within an atlas. Seems to work, except it taks up a lot of memory on the phone !
