Got it, that's beautiful!

You don't export it. You note the coordinates of the calibrated image corners in Mikhail's program and input them into RMP Creator. The path to the image remains the same for both programs. The image does not get warped with either program, therefore it will only be as accurate as the calibration points you add. Small areas less than 20 square miles are fairly accurate. Larger areas need to be warped or split into smaller sections and create individual maps.

Thanks Morel,

I think this makes sense. If I understand the concept correctly, I can go straight from Topo State Series (by exporting image) to RMP Creator since I can note the coordinates of different points using Topo State Series software. Do I have this right?

Cheers!

This is one of my pdf downloaded superquads from TopoExplorer. Used paint shop pro photo to stitch the 4 images together that make up a superquad. Saved as a jpg, imported to Mikhails TritonRMP program to calibrate, then converted the JPG to RMP with Picco's RMP creator beta 11.

Thanks Morel,

I am attempting this today. How do you export a calibrated .jpg from Mikhails TritonRMP?

Thanks Morel,

Maybe something like this might do the trick for state series? http://www.msh-tools.com/triton.html Any recommendations on software?

Corbin

UPDATE:

Actually, I see your recent post here: https://www.exploristforum.com/.....38;id=1685. Looks like this could be a good place to start.

Just checked and the triton raster map maker doesn't work for eXplorist 710. 🙁

UPDATE:

To clarify, I am referring to the msh-tools triton raster map maker specifically.

perfect, it makes sense now. A bit confusing that this little guy looks so similar to the hiking profile. :S

I have sent in my Triton 500 and received my 710 and I must say all the reviews have been dead on! It's amazing!!! A couple of questions though :unsure: :

[ul]---I see this little guy walking icon on the upper bar next to the satellite reception. I don't know what this is. I thought it was the currently selected profile (since it looks like hiking profile), but when I change the profile to vehicle profile, it doesn't change the picture of this icon. The only thing I could find in the user manual is that it is the "mode". Thoughts?

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Thanks David! I suppose I can sell my Nat Geo Map Series? The only reason I purchased was because of the Triton :unsure: Looking forward to the new map features 🙂

[ul]---My main question: Are the Topo State Series maps compatible on this unit? Since this was my most admired feature of the Triton, it would be great if Magellan/National Geographic extended this feature to the eXplorist. Any Magellan beta testers out there know if Magellan have plans for this capability? [/ul]

This is probably just the start of my questions as get to know the 710 better 🙂 Also, definitely looking forward to when I have the bicycle mount 😉
