    Hi!
    I have made some stepps in the right direction (i think) but its a bit slow. GPS TrackMaker can generate a .txt file witch contains the track log uncoded the only problems are the t,d, or sometthing like that just in the front of the cordinates... and there are a lots of them... a complete turist map contains 5000+ pois so selection of routes and cutting out some pois is necessary (GPSTM program will do it).the documentation of Track makers format is right here: http://www.gpstm.com/articles.php . as I can see its a free developped software.
    I have even looked at .klm description at wiki and it redirected me to googles page about it. As mutch as I can see it (as lame to programing) it has quite a clear description, but I'm not sure about the law problems.
    I can upload or send a sample .txt for track maker.
    A good kml map with a FULL tourist map functionality is 38mb for a small region of mountains =) including contour-map.

    DennyPSP, http://maps.yandex.ru/ does not seem to have any tile based maps, and the small/medium/large formats they do can not be neatly carved up into 256x256 parts (200x200 and then scaled up maybe - but still won't have GPS support). A better option may be http://nakarte.rambler.ru/ which I'll take a look at later to see if it's GPS compatible to Google - any other Russian maps that are tile based (in Firefox, Tools/Page Info/Media) that you can suggest in case rambler doesn't work out?

    The rampler maps seem to use a slightly different projection...
    compare following tiles:

    nevertheless, nice catch...

    Rambler (http://nakarte.rambler.ru/) maps added (10 different maps of Russian cities) however without GPS support - if anyone has any ideas of how to match them up to the Google projection I'll try to implement them. Note: you can download maps that are more zoomed out than the web page allows by specifying the numbers manually under "Advanced" then the top 2x2 layer will be created filled with empty tiles.

    (2)
    GeoData.DAT files can now be created automatically for new maps (checkbox in the bottom left) - this is US only. Please consider downloading the full usgs_tiger (550MB) from http://www.in7ane.com/psp/mirrors.html and placing the unzipped usgs_tiger folder into C:\GMDL

    (3)
    1024 maximum map size is now a suggestion (click "No" to proceed with downloading the map)

    Always have problem of getting gmdl to run. Everytime I got an error message during the inital launch even though I have already installed the Microsoft .net framework version 2.0 installer.

    Should I install a visual studio.net to get rid of all the problem? Pls advise.

    Could someone post a ready made map of Malaysia? I need the map to locate my fishing spot. Will be there in a month time. Thanks.

    Nice work, in7ane...
    I like the new layouts!
    So far, just one comment... when you hit "pull files" from "Advanced" tab, it does not seem to react to "Add geodata" checkbox...which kind of missleading, since the checkbox is righgt near that section...

    I tried the "automatic option" from the gmdl main window ("Add Geodata" checkbox) and it worked just fine for a relatively small map of Atlanta..
    although it kinda froze for a few minutes...
    The errors refered to some problems with county boundaries in some other states and most likely should not affect your map...
