I use maps from MagicMaps, I've tried the Canvec version and renamed them from .imi to .poi, and they appear as an overlay map, not an image map. Phil D on this forum has used the raster maps, and has posted screen shots of them. I wouldn't know why yours don't work.

How did you load them onto the unit ? I used Vantage Point V2.04, and transferred the maps thru VP, they work fine for me. Maybe its the way you put the maps on the unit.... do they work if you look at them on VP ?

Thought this should be posted here:

This is correct, however...the new EX models do accept RMP maps made with the easier to use Mobile Atlas Creator or use Picco's RMP tool to create maps of any calibrated image. The screen size, color, and clarity of the EX exceeds the Triton and the PN 40. The units are also more user friendly.
