Major updates :-
- Improved map referencing and translation - faster and more
accurate with skewed maps.
- Grid option improved to work better in
degrees+minutes(+seconds) mode. The grid spacing and colour can also be
- Added support for the additional serial port on netBook and
Series 7. This should allow PCMCIA and CF (via PCMCIA adapter) GPS
units to be used.
- Added a facility to send a text file to the serial port
before beginning moving map mode. The text file should be named
rs232.txt and copied to the \system\apps\realmaps\ folder. This allows
commands to be sent to the GPS (eg. to switch on NMEA mode on some SIRF
units) prior to reading from the port.
- Added a colour icon for netBook and Series 7 users.
- Added automatic analysis of map referencing to spot and
advise most common errors when defining points, loading a map, or
manually when 'D' is pressed to display the information.
- Added support for UTM coordinates.
