Hi All

I am running Oziexplorer with Natmap but there's not enough map detail for my liking. Can anyone recommend a good digital map product that gives more detail (Secondary Streets / Tracks etc) that I can use within Oziexplorer. I am interested in both WA Metro and Regional areas but more leaning to regional.

Thanks!
Will.

Try this website http://www.gpsaustralia.net/forums/view.php?pg=mapsearch and do a search on the area you are after. You have to register though.
You will find that the maps are bundled with oziexplorers map file, making them ready to be used.

Most of my 1.25k/1.100k maps have been downloaded from here.

Have a look in the Shop section of this website under Digital Mapping.

For WA I suggest you get:
The RASTER the 50000 series for the South West that has got a lot of road detail for the SW. And I see there is a new release for the Kimberleys.

There is also StretEXpress 2005 from DOLA which covers the Perth Street Directory.

Also the new UDB gives you true street level mapping for all capital cites and is a good addition if you are using a laptop and not a PDA.

i have JUST PUT THE W.A. 50k raster on the pc and (after you get the hang of choosing between 2 maps) is very good.
apart from the strange gap north of margaret river and around perth that is.

Hello - The 50K SW WA maps are scans of existing maps of the south west - "Why the gaps?" - for some reason the state and federal governments have not mapped these areas at 50k scale..so there are no maps to scan. Maybe because they are the areas subject to most development ..dont know. I have it on good authority that the 25K topographical maps covering the south west (including the "gaps" in the 50K series) will be avaialble in digital format in a few months (about 200 maps, calibrated and ready to go with OziExplorer) - keep your eye on the exploroz shop.
Cheers

Hi Willy,

I have maps of most of the country except for around the bottom of WA, so not sure where you can get them, but I would suggest if you have no luck with electronic maps, try scanning in some maps from road maps and street directories. Any map can be scanned into Oziexplorer and calibrated as far as I know. Hope this helps.

Hi Blaze

When you say "bottom of WA" where exactly do you mean?

If you want the coastline from Augusta to Esperance - it's avaliable on the 50K raster.
