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.

    I suggest you to take a simple valid gmi file and compare it to the output of my program. Or send me both picture and map file and I'll see what I can do.

    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,

    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!
