The distance (against moving direction) might also be automatically derived from the traveling speed. This would allow to see more of the map 'ahead'. (this would look like the postion marker is blown back from the airstream of the moving velocity). I guess this would be the ultimate solution (at l...

Hi Scott,
I'm up to .37 now, which only crashed once during 3 hours of use and many exits to use other applications on the Palm. I'll try and give you some more useful information should any more exceptions occur.

Hi mate, I got your email. The calibration settings look the same as I was using before, but I think the original problem (Pathaway coordinates not matching the actual GPS ones read by another program) was coming from the fact that I had 'use current map datum' ticked in Pathaway itself. I'll give i...

Thanks TheSnake, have you tried to send the file? I'm nowhere near my quota on the e-mail address in my profile, and there is nothing in my message service here.

Thanks for your help.

Crashing when exiting 4.36

I'm getting frequent lock ups on a Palm T3 when exiting 4.36. Pressing the 'home' button to exit often results in a fatal exception. The only way toreset is the button on the back. This is quite inconvenient as I use Pathaway most with my Palm on a Power-to-go sled in a water proof case. Resetting i...

Is there any chance of a detailed step by step walkthrough for OSGB calibration (especially with relation to Memory Map screenshots :D :wink: ) I am getting fairly accurate and nudging once in the field, but I recently discovered that the coordinates reported by Pathaway differ from those reported b...

I managed to get a map off the PC without it crashing. Now opening the map in Pathaway causes an immediate lock with a divide by zero error. Going back in to Map Manager, and looking at the map I calibrated, shows that all the Northings and Eastings I entered are now exactly the same for each point,...

Hmmm, it's 4.04 here, which is now crashing to desktop when I try to save the map.
This is the only thing I find disappointing about Pathaway, the rather convoluted and mysterious calibration process.

Thanks for your help so far!

Hi TheSnake, and thanks for replying. I think I am not following your instructions correctly. I have attached a screenshot of my map manager to show my settings. I am putting in the grid letters SJ and the OSGB coords from Memory Map eg 36000 88000. However, as you can see, when I return to point 1 ...

Calibrating Memory Map screenshots

Hi, Can someone give me some advice calibrating screen shots from Memory Map OSGB for Pathaway 4? As I use a Palm, and Memory Map only exports to PPC, I have a method where I screenshot the area I want, and calibrate in map manager, before exporting to the Palm. I use the special OSGB settings in th...

Hi Phil,
No need to modify the page. My wife helped me translate your directions, and we had great success calibrating our maps.

Thanks for your efforts,
Gareth

Many thanks Phil. French is not my forte (!) but I've saved the pages and will have a go at calibrating more accurately.

Cheers,

Calibrating IGN 1:25000 maps of France

Hi,
I'm struggling to calibrate a scan of a paper map (I've never attempted it before). I've added an attachment of the cover, which also states 'GPS compatible'. Could anyone tell me the information I need to put in to the Map Manager before I add my known points?

Thanks for any help!
