- in GIF or JPG format;
- do not use too large maps, e.g. above 1000x1000 pixel, because the loading of the images will be slowed down, use several maps if large are should be covered;
- North should be upward on the map.How to install a map:
- copy the map to the phone (e.g. with PcSuite);

- select one or more files or directories (for directiories, all applicable files in the directories will be added to the list) using the joy, then press OK;
- the map will be listed, with a red X mark, which means that is not calibrated yet, and it may not be used until it is calibrated.How to calibrate a map:
For calibrating a map, you have to go to at least two different places on the map by foot, by car, by bus, etc., with the GPS device and your phone. Both times, you have to locate your position on the map by selecting Options/View and calib. at the list of the maps. In this view, you can use the joystick to move the map in large steps, or press the ABC button or with the joystick to move smoothly. Press 'I am here' to record your positon (a red dot will show it on the map). After you have set at least two places, the red X mark at the list of the maps will be a green sign.
You can calibrate a map on your PC with OziExplorer, if you know the coordinates of at least two points on the map.How to calibrate a map on a PC using OziExplorer
Download OziExplorer (http://www.oziexplorer.com), and start the TRIAL version (if you do not have a full version, of course). Select "File/Load and calibrate map image", and add at least two points: select Point 1 on the tab on the right, select the position on the image, then enter the coordinates of that point. Repeat this with another point as Point 2. Please use points far away from each other, e.g. one in the left bottom part of the image, one in the top right part of the image. Select save, then exit. How to install a map calibrated with OziExplorer:
- copy the map (*.gif or *.jpg) and the calibration file (*.map) to the phone (e.g. with PcSuite, in the same directory);
- start GPSMap, select Options/Maps, select Options/Add map...
- navigate through the directory structure by pressing the joy left or right, select one or more files (the icon for maps with calibration files will be "OZI") or directories (for directiories, all applicable files in the directories will be added to the list) using the joy, then press OK;
- the map will be listed, with a green sign, which means that it is calibrated.How to display your position using a map:
After calibrating a map, you can use it to display your position. Go to Options/Setup, and set Diplay to the name of the map, or set it to 'Automatic'. In automatic mode, always the map available for the current position will be displayed.
Panning: your position is in the center of the map, however, you can pan the map using the joystick(press the joy to make it centered again).
Zooming: you can zoom in or out using the * and the # keys.Valid/invalid GPS position
The information received from the GPS device may be valid or not (depending on the number of satellites). In text mode, valid information is displayed in blue, invalid in red. When displaying a map, a blinking red dot will mean that the information is not valid, or the GPS receiver is not connected.

Settings
Display: text, automatic or a selected map (only calibrated maps are listed). In text mode, latitude, longitude, speed, course, altitude is listed. In automatic mode, always the map available for the current position will be displayed, otherwise it shows that there isn't any available map. When a map is selected, positions outside the maps will be simply shown using a blank screen with the red dot in the center.
Always on: prevent the phone from going into standby mode (to switch off the screen). GPS devices
Any Bluetooth-capable device is supported, however, the program is tested with: Pharos BT-100, Fortuna GPSmart, Rikaline BT.
