Generate local maps from remote maps

Generate local maps from remote maps

Did you know that… the Land software allows you to select an area of a topographic or orthographic on-line map (remote map) at the same time that you create a local file which can be transferred to GPS TwoNav?

By doing this the user won’t need to be connected during his outdoor activities. Take the chance to know how to do it:

1. Open a remote map.

Open Ortophoto Map

Open Spain Orto map

2. You can find them among those that are installed by default along with Land software (examples: Espana_ortho_utm30.cwms, USA_Canada_MyTopo.cwms or OpenStreetMaps)*

3. You can also get remote maps (among others) from “menu> maps> download from internet a map for this area“.

5. Select the piece of map that you want to transfer to your GPS TwoNav.

6. Specify the name of your map and save it in inside Land’s ‘maps’ folder. This action will start the process of creating the map. This process can take hours for large map sections.

8. Once the user starts working with our GPS device, you only have to select the new map from “Data > Maps”.

Did you know that… communication between TwoNav dual navigation software and our preparation, management and analysis software Land was very easy?

If you connect a smartphone (Android/iPhone/iPad/Windows Mobile) to your PC, you’ll be able to send any kind of information from  Land to the device and vice-versa.

This option will allow you, for example, to open a recorded track and display it with more details in PC Land or send a prepared route or scanned map to your device.

Just plug and play! So easy! You can try it with the basic version (free), what are you waiting for?
