Hello
is anyone aware of any maps soft for Z?
Something like AutoRouter or GPSDrive(which is supposed to-technically-  work on Z, but all maps  have to be downloaded as you go, which is a pain in the ass when you\'re travelling(great program tough-highly recommended in general)
Any soft anyone might know of, or better yet used?
cheers
Martin

JMap looks like something I could use.
I\'ll give it a shot.
Cheers

Except its home site of http://roadmap.saigon.net no longer exists (there\'s a http://saigon.net, but no such subdomain any longer).

You can download the one of the versions from my site: http://moria.ionkov.net/zaurus/zroadmap. I don\'t remember if it is the latest one I compiled though.

You can download the maps from here: https://www.oesf.org/commu...jects/zroadmap/

II\'m mostly looking for european maps.
Mainly eastern and south/eastern europe. Poland, czech rep, Hungary etc.
I\'ve noticed though that even MS auto router pretty much ignores eastern europe..
Too bad, it\'s an amazing place to travel through and beer is SOOOO cheap

I cant seem to get zroadmap to work on my 5600.  It runs but cant read the database.  I have usdir.rdm.tgz and usIN.tar.gz.
I get these errors on the console :

cannot open map database usc06013
cannot open map database usc06075

My maps are for IN and start at 18001


The database is extracted on /mnt/cf/QtPalmtop/share/roadmap.
I tried the ipk at http://moria.ionkov.net/zaurus/zroadmap.

When I install on the z, the installer complains with:

\"Configuring zroadmap...[: zroadmap: unknown operand
Done.\"


Any ideas as to what\'s wrong?
Thanks

Forgot one bit of important info.  I dont have a gps device.  I was just hoping I would be able to view the maps with zroadmap.

Yes, nothing happens.  the console displays those database errors I mentioned.  Why does it look for usc0613?

That is the default location that zroadmap tries to show (San Francisco, CA I think).

So what happens when you do Find-]Address?

I have the same ROM, and got the same error from ipkg, but zroadmap functions fine.

Try searching for a very basic address --100 Main St in your town (if you have a Main St  ), then navigate to the street in front of your house and mark it as a waypoint or a destination.  When you start zRoadmap again, it should open with the location you marked (or you can instruct it to go there).

I think the easiest way to find your house is to search by intersection.
