Just a short note to say that the Hema 2012 Raster Map Collection does NOT work on Trackranger Navigation Program, Hema Maps have to upgrade there ECW Files,

I do nt think the Hema 1/250,000 are as detailed as the same series supplied by Natmaps from Aust. Geosciences. I am going to run the latter on my Hema 6 Navigator

John,

I'm surprised the Navigator 6 doesn't come with the Natmap series of maps like the Navigator 5 did, as well as the Hema range of maps.

Hi Bill

That is the only downside, but I copied my Natmap 1:250K from the HN5 onto the HN6, dead easy.

Below is what John is talking about.

Apart from this issue, which you can live with, the new HN6 is even better and it is now even possible to import tracks directly into the normal OziExploer as you would for any user track, and not as a GPX File.


Cheers

HI Josh
Yes they said they are working on the problem.Bit its a bit disappointing when you buy the program for $170.00 expecting it to work.

Hi,

It probably isn't that hard (in fact Im pretty sure its an easy fix) - more likely an oversight. Not many people use Trackranger (as far as I can figure) so maybe they (Hema) didnt do a test before release.

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

Has any one figured out why they dont work? Do the ecw files lack the required coordinate header information (contained inside ecw file structure) required by Trackranger?
