Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has had experince with putting CFS maps (.ecw format) on a HN6?

We are looking at getting one for my brigades appliance and so we are able to see our position on a moving map, particularly useful when our brigade is on a strike team operating in an unfamiliar area.

I have a HN5 but the included maps are only the 250k maps rather than the 50k detail that we need to see fire tracks.

Hema site says you can but mentions that the performance of ecw maps isn't as good as ozf.

Any idea what sort of detail/clarity we can expect, will it be similar to the printed map book?

No direct experience but my guess is the maps will be identical to the printed map book...the paper versions would have originated from the digital versions.

Load them up and see...what have you got to lose ?

If you find the ecw format is "slow" convert them to ozf using the free conversion program HERE

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Hi Alex

If they are the same maps that are produced by the National Parks, then yes no problems what so ever. I have put the Yorke Peninisula, Kangaroo Island and the Mid North maps onto my HN6 and they work a treat.

Lot better to convert the ECW files into OZF4.
Software to convert the maps is available free on
