    Default Windows maps download tool for MapThis! by in7ane

    Since lots of people, had difficulties with cygwin, in7ane, has come up with a nice gui PC tool for generating the maps...It's still in development phase (as most of this project :-), so if you find a bug, please report it in this thread...

    screenshot:


    source and exe (in /bin/debug/):
    http://deniska.dcemu.co.uk/bin/gmdl21.zip

    it does require Microsoft .net 2 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/ (~22Mb)
    but installation and usage seem to be much easier and straight forward for average user :-)

    [EDIT] Here is a link to a newer version, featuring:
    - custom map creation
    - GPSFS - map compression format...
    - POI/directions support
    - numerous map vendor support
    - hybrid maps and more
    http://www.in7ane.com/psp/gmdl.html

    Check the thread for details and latest versions...

    uhhh.... there's no exe in the zip folder there's just a folder and what looks to be a file but if you double click on it it takes you to a folder and that folder is empty. I'm confused...

    EDIT: never mind i downloaded it again and it works now, it was corrupted

    I'm using it right now! works fine (even faster than cygwin's), still needs some work, but its a fine release!

    Default Application display needs to resize or needs scroll bars...

    It's still useable and a great program, the problem is that on my laptops 1024 * 768 resolution I am unable to see the entire application display. If the program display would resize with the window or scroll bars were added it would be a great help for those who don't have access to large resolution screens. Another option would be to put some of the options at the top of the display, in its own tab, or on an independant tool panel. Just throwing out some options. Shouldn't be too hard to code. Because of this I'm limited to google, but I'm cool with that because I'm still shopping for a receiver right now... It's hard to find exactly what I'm looking for in Japan.

    Peace

    I like the prog, the only prob I have with it is that its hard to figure out the numbers for zoom and such...

    how can I get the restaurnats and such loaded in it?
    I seen a test file in deniskas NY map..
    do I have to load that manually?
    I hope not

    I provided a script (a quick hack to get restaurants from toeat.com):
    ./getrest.sh [lat] [lon] [map_size] [zoom]

    It's just a proof of concept and pretty slow, but feel free to use it... perhaps someone can improve it or create more scripts & find more sources for POI...
