The first sample used the ICS file from Mikhail's code. This uses the ICS from the RMP Tools fixer - which is almost the same as the MOBAC ICS.

My objective is to be able to open a calibrated image and save as a RMP in one step and also the ability to process a batch of files.

I also plan to make freely available a RMP to KMZ convertor

John !
I'm a big fan of your software ! I use it a lot to make really nice maps from various sources. Thank you !!!
I do of course have to use some other software to convert the ready made images to RMPs. It would be of great help if you also could generate the RMPs. I would be happy to help testing.
This would not be on the technical level like Sockeye can.
Of the other tools that make RMPs, mobac is of course super, and makes correct files. But it cannot be used for the work I use your software.
Of the other RMP makers I have ended up with the old program from Michail.
It makes incorrect files, but they are corrected with Sockeye's utility.
The german Rmp Creator (http://www.picosaan.de/app/tri.....onrmp.jnlp) does work, but it has a limitation of 2.5m/pixel, and many maps I make (with your software) are more detailed than that.
The antalos.com/gps/en-rmp-creator.php does not work for me at all. It fails all the time. Maybe because my images are too big for it. Sometimes it just fails, sometimes it complains about the missing file LIBEAY32.dll.
So far all attempts with this software have failed.
Michail's old program seems to take anything I feed it. (I do have to make a very simple ajustment to the .map files generated by mapc2maps for it to work. I guess it's a bug in Michail's program, but it's so simple to fix).

To create raster maps, we use a bunch of Global Mapper and RMP Creator.
RMPCreator is a new program. It has no flaws TritonRMP.

Hi,

I just checked your sample file. It is defently not created by the MOBAC code, but is created either by Michails Triton RMP creator or thereof derived code, as it contains the same errors Michail made.

If you strive for a non commercial version, I am happy to support.

RMP maps must be "fixed" by running them through Sockeye's RMP Fix program, found elsewhere on the page, to work on the X10 series units.

I might be willing to participate in the testing of the map creation. Let me know what needs to be done. PM me some info please jolly roger.

I am the developer of MAPC2MAPC - a windows program to manipulate and interface digital raster maps. (www.the-thorns.org.uk)

After studying the Mobile Atlas Creator code and sample file, I am fairly confident that I can extend the program to create RMP files. This would mean that RMP files could be created from the many sources of free mapping (NOAA charts, UK OS Opendata, Canmatrix, NZ Topo, etc) or maps you scan yourself.

But I don't have a Magellan device so would like a few volunteers who would help me test in exchange for free licences.

There is a small sample here - it opens in Vantagepoint but is it visible on Explorist units? http://www.sendspace.com/file/m3jy87
