OziExplorer’s map-> GPSTuner’s gmi converter

These days I am evaluating GPSTuner PocketPC application. It displays your position on a map based on GPS input (and of course it has many more features besides this). The maps are basically normal bitmaps with calibration info added in a separate file with an .gmi extension. The thing is that there aren’t many calibrated maps out there for GPSTuner. OTOH there are plenty of calibrated maps for OziExplorer, a similar application. On the bright side, the calibration file is easily converted from one to the another format. Thus I’ve created a simple conversion application that convert’s OziExplorer’s map to GPSTuner’s gmi format. I’ve tested it on OziExplorer’s 2.1 and 2.2 calibration format. You can find the converter application here.

Hi I downloaded this program and although it converts the map files when I try to load a map in Gps Tuner they wont load and GMI does not appear in list of files can you help me
regards Tony

I tried to convert a map file to a gmi file, but it does not seem to work. I’ve included the map file below.
Do you have a fix to solve the conversion problem ?

Best regards,

Mario

First note, that I have a dedicated forum for this utility.
Next, image file should have the same file name as map file. Try naming the map file to 50E_Gilze.map.

Hi,

I’ve just tried you converter and I wonder – shouldn’t gmi contain image width and height before calibration point list?

Thanks and best regards from Czech Republic!
