Hi,

I have recently bought MM2004 OS edition for the whole of GB (1:50,000), so Iím very much a beginner on this topic. Wink

In the next few weeks we're hoping to go on a car rally / Treasure hunt that requires Ordnance Survey Landranger (1:50,000) paper map number 141 Kettering and Corby. I already have a paper map of the area, and the rules allow electronic maps and GPS equipment to be used as well. Thumbs Up

Is there a way of transferring a piece of map data from the PC to the PDA that is the same size and area as covered in the paper map 141?

Thanks,

Just zoom and resize your window on the PC to cover the area you want then export the visible region to the PDA.

Hi MrT,

Thanks for the reply. Thumbs Up

In this case I have the paper map so that is relatively easy to find the area. What happens if the area covers more than one region, will Memory-Map automatically stitch the regions together for one area that can be exported to the PDA?

I take it that there is no lazy way of specify map 141, which instructs Memory-Map to export that area (covered by the paper map) to the PDA?

Thanks

There is usually quite an overlap on map regions (except aerial photography) so this is usually not necessary. However if a route does cover a boundary, you need to merge the maps together on the PC, view the merged map, then export the area you want to the PDA.
