Just a couple of queries if I may,
Q1. I have loaded Natmaps to my hard drive, When I try to load a map in Ozi why is it still asking for the Natmap CD and not loading the map from my hard drive?. Am I missing something in the configuration? or is this normal.
Q2. I have transferred some tracks from my GPS into Ozi. I can't seem to be able to save the tracks to file and retrieve later.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Q1. Have you added path to maps? Config-Map images-Path.

Have to think some more re Q2.

Can I suggest you just use your file manager to drag the files from the CD into the map directory. Need to copy both files, ie the map file and the ecw files. Cheers

A1. Use the Path change facility that can be found in the following menus path:

File > Change Image Name, Path & Drive

Use the second section in the Change Image Location window.

A2. One thing I struggled with when I started using Ozi is that the file structures are different for different GPS objects. What I mean is that you can save many waypoints to a single file and also many routes to a single file. However, you can save only one track to a file.

If you have downloaded more than one track from your GPS, open the track properties for each track, in turn and save them there. Each one to a different file.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Pluto,
It is still not working for me.
In the "for all maps here" I'm selecting
In the "change image path to"
Natmap CD-2

I have tried other various paths etc. but when I try to load a map, it still asks for the cd.........argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is starting to frustrate me no end.

OK. When you open one of the maps, you will get an error message popup that says:

Cannot find the image file for map blah blah blah ... Browse disk for new location of image file.

Click 'Yes' and browse to the folder in which you copied the images.

When you've found the image, you need to save the changes to map calibration file. The quickest way is to click the map button on the right hand side of the toolbar (it will be highlited in red).

You can do that individualy, seeing there are only about a dozen maps to relink. Imagine having to do it to the old mapsheet raster series... Only 500 odd maps to do there.

I had a look at the disks on the weekend. The images on Disk 1 are not in the one folder. That's why my original suggestion didn't work. I'm glad you got it sorted.
