· GPS data: gpx (GPS Exchange Format); wpt, plt, rte (OziExplorer); and many others formats thanks to the software GpsBabel
· DEM data (digital earth model): hgt (SRTM-1 and SRTM-3)

Supported Gps devices:
· Upload/download through GpsBabel: Garmin and Magellan
· NMEA navigation: all GPS devices that support Nmea protocol
Here are some key features of "OkMap":

· Calibrate vectorial and raster maps with diffent types of cartographic projections
· Create own digital maps drawing point, multipoint, polyline and polygon vector
· Display simultaneously raster maps and vectorial data
· Import digital vectorial data based on different types of cartographic projections
· Use calibrated maps and vectorial data as background for navigation
· Create and represent on maps (raster and vectorial): waypoints, routes and tracks
· Use digital terrain models to display the elevation of any point on the map
· Load and save waypoints, routes and tracks in GPX format
· Upload and download waypoints, routes and tracks to and from a GPS device
· Navigate in real time via a GPS device through NMEA protocol
· Display Google Earth and Google Maps in current map location
· Exchange data with Google Earth
· Exchange data with gpsgate.com server
· Receive via socket customized navigation data from remote GPS devices
· Send via socket the current position to an OkMap remote server
· Make conversions between different types of coordinates, datums, formats, etc..
· Use a handy calculator for your calculations

· Processor: 400 Mhz or higher
· RAM: 128 MB or higher
· HDD: at least 35 MB
· Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5

What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]

· Increased the number of image formats of the maps.
· NMEA simulator: The altitude of the point is set depending on DEM data (if loaded).
· Recording track: In some circumstances the first point was missing the date/time (fixed).
· Send OkMap / GpsGate position: The GPS date/time are now used and not computer the date/time.
· Receive OkMap / GpsGate position: The description of the point and the altitude are now setted.
· Send and receive OkMap position: Speed and direction information was added.
· Send OkMap position: If an error occurs, the reporting was done several times (fixed).
· Preferences: The password of the GpsGate service is now masked.

  1. Recentemente il software OkMap include una funzione per generare automaticamente le Garmin custom maps (formato kmz).
    La calibrazione delle mappe è sofisticata perchè OkMap usa diversi tipi di proiezioni cartografiche e gestisce molti datum.
    La nuova funzione include la piastrellizzazione della mappa da e a diversi tipi di formati immagine (incluso il formato ECW in input).
    E' possibile selezionare le estensioni KML 2.2 (se il GPS le supporta), la qualità JPEG, la trasparenza KML, l'ordine di disegno, ecc..
    Si possono selezionare quali "tiles" generare nell'output.
    Questa funzione supporta anche le mappe non orientate a nord.
    OkMap inoltre include un server Google Maps dal quale è possibile scaricare mappe Google, OpenStreetMap, MyTopo, DOCQ, ecc..
    Queste due funzioni combinate insieme possono essere veramente utili.

  2. Recently OkMap freeware software include a feature to generate automatically compatible Garmin custom maps (kmz format).
    The map calibration is sophisticated because OkMap uses different type of projection and several datums.
    This new feature includes map tiling from and to different image file formats (including from ECW map files).
    It’s possible select KML extensions 2.2 (if GPS supports them), the JPEG quality, KML transparency, draw order, ecc..
    You can select the tiles to generate in output.
    This feature support also not north oriented maps.
    OkMap include a Google maps server to download maps from Google, OpenStreetMap, MyTopo, DOCQ, ecc..
    These two features combined together may be very useful.

  3. OK i'll update my OKmap post, to the recently OK Map version
