Choose between manual calibration and calibration using .map file:
Identify 2 points on your bitmap, one in left upper and one in right lower corner
Enter coordinates (X, Y) and GPS coordinates (Latitude, Longitude) of both points
Note: GPS coordinates may be entered as N00°00'00.00" or N00°00.0000
Calibration from .map file
This file is used by Ozi Explorer, may contain up to 30 calibration points, recommended for large maps
Click "Load .map" button and open the .map file - 2 of all defined coordinates will be filled in the form
Do NOT edit the values!!!!!
Note: Map Builder does not support all types of coordinate formats
Choose map projection type (in most cases the right value is WGS-84) (available from version 1.30)
Click "Convert" (or "Open BMP and Convert" in version 1.30+), open bitmap and wait until the process is finished
Note: If your map is large, the program only supports its 24bit format, for smaller maps most of the formats are supported
Copy the map to Memory stick (\DOCUMENT\QuickGPS\Maps). Use it.
In QuickGPS you can change the projection type under menu Map/Projection (version 1.30+)
Creating a map (Andree de Miranda)
Excellent software, enjoy using it. Have tried now to create a map from a scanned paper map. Seems to work out ok. Entering the right N and E coordinates does not seem to work. Tries to copy the values from your Google Maps app, then tried to type them in, in format N52 10.6656 (with grade 0 symbol in-between). Result if I try navigate to tapped point, the next street from here is 5467 km away...
What am I doing wrong?
It seemed like easy to do...
