Moagu 2.0 beta released
« on: July 21, 2010, 03:54:29 PM »
For those of you who've bought/registered my Moagu program to convert raster maps into Garmin format, the beta of version 2.0 is out, and I'm looking for feedback:

You also need to have the free version of cgpsmapper installed on your computer:

http://cgpsmapper.com

If you haven't registered it, the new beta increases the spatial extents available in demo mode, making it more useful if you only need small map segments (about 1.5 miles x 1.5 miles or so); it's free in demo mode.

Biggest changes:

- mkgmap is now the default compiler; it compiles maps about 30 times faster than the current free version of cgpsmapper, and 150 times faster than older versions.

- Includes a de-collaring utility for standard USGS 1:24K topo maps (NAD27 GeoTiffs only)

- I've optimized the GUI front-end to the BMap2MP vectorizer utility to create decent-looking USGS topo maps with much faster draw times than standard Moagu maps (2-3 times faster). A new tutorial section in the help file walks you through the process of creating these. These are now fast enough to work OK on the older 60C/76C models. I've created an installer with a sample USGS map that you can try out:

This has both the installer and a GPX waypoint located within the map (to simplify finding the map location).

I don't have my 62S yet, so I haven't been able to test out this BMap2MP topo map on the newer Garmin OS that runs on Colorado/Oregon/Dakota/62/78 series; they should work, but I'm not sure. If someone could try it out on one of those models and let me know if it works, that would be great!

Longer list of improvements here:
