Initial Project for Volunteer Testers

Postby antyong (retired) » Wed Sep 17, 2008 10:19 am

Dear testers,

My first request is for you to explore and report what gmapsupp file names are supported by your devices. I'll like to compile a spreadsheet for the benefit of new users.

Compilation of reports is done by bro tympg. Report

:tq:

For Vista HCx, only GMAPSUPP.img is recognised. GMAPPROM.img and GMAPBMAP.img are not recognised (the base map that came with the unit is neither removable nor changeable). Neither are the GMAPSUPx.img series where x is a number.
