I did not see a list of compatible GPS Devices, and would like to know if my Garmin 76CS will work with your program.

Currently Navigator runs great on Windows PC and on Windows Mobile, also on my old Windows PocketPC.

For Garmin have a look at OSM Wiki Garmin. Many OSMer create maps for Garmin devices and offer downloads for free OSM Map on Garmin / Download.

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

Hi all
I've installed Navigator 10 free and loaded Italy map.

The program starts, then crashes.
The log file says:

Hi maxbolo,
it looks like some parts of PC Navigator were not properly installed? Did you manually removed some downloaded data? Can you send me whole navigator.log.txt?
thanks

I have some other issue, so I re-install PC Navigator and the maps and now seems to work perfectly.

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

only a small update about House Numbers (I was asked about them repeatedly)

mapfactor wrote:

... the house numbers available on OSM are not converted to MCA files yet. Anyway, you should be able to search by country/city/street name (crossing) at the moment.

Since March 2011 data you should see _some_ house numbers even in application with OSM data. It was only first attempt to see the data and if simple approximation could have any value for users. There were no comments about it, so it probably did not work well (?). Used tags were 'addr:street', 'addr:housenumber' and 'addr:streetnumber' (with higher priority).

Note, that this is only the first step and more complex cases will hopefully follow soon ...

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

So I am having some issues with the program. It may be a learning curve or i dont know what. If it helps i am in Tampa FL.

I have not yet used the POI Import tool so I wont say anything about the low availability of those as it is not your fault.

The city searching feature is horrible, i may just be using it incorrectly. But i tried to locate "Montague st." in Tampa FL, did not work by zip code or by searching tampa, it turned up under town n country. I live in town n country and my street did not turn up under there.

So then i have had much luck just browsing the streets by the county, only problem with that is I rarely know what county I am visiting, for instance I am going to a wedding this weekend in Virginia, I will be in a few different counties but no idea what they are.

Another problem i run into is when I search for "Tampa" I get like 5 different options, "east tampa", "South Tampa" i have never heard of these cities, "south tampa" is referred to as a little area of the town, but it is not a geographical reference. but these all cant just be lumped up into "Tampa" the only way i have had luck again is just by using the county search on this. the issue is even worse when again I am traveling to a new area, falls church in VA has numerous options and again I have no idea what the county is, and zip codes dont work.

Would almost prefer the ability to search by every street name in that state and have the city the street is located in in parenthesis.


Also, I notice while in 3d Mode, the "car" or arrow that represents me goes way off the road when I am driving on the highway even when im going just straight down the road, this only seems to happen in 3d mode not when I have it in 2d is there some issue with the rendering or what?

All things considered this is a great little program and Id have no issues with it if I had a data plan so I could use the "Internet search" feature to find the places I am going to. I suppose we will be waiting a bit longer for the house numbers on the US streets

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

Hello! I have just checked the Navigator 10 with Hungarian map. The app is excellent, however I find some problems with the maps coming with it. Budapest is not complete on the map, and some other towns are also not complete. I mean, a lot of streets are missing. But in openstreetmap.org, Budapest seems to be OK on the map. Accorting to the MapFactor site, the map is from April 19, 2011, so I'm using the latest map. Maybe there was some problems with these maps during conversion.

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

I had a problem with my GPS device, when GPS device was tried to be detected automatically with 57600 baud, Navigator 10 freezed. My GPS is at COM1 with baut 4800. Finally I have found a site how to configure it manually. It is described here: http://directions.ltd.uk/modifying-sett … vigator-10

Hello,
I did a quick check of number of streets and administrative areas in Hungary from planet-110504 and it is similar to April data:
May  253479 links, 3103 admins
April 240453 links, 3078 admins
If you have any particular street/way ID I may check it. The hungary_osm_110517.mca should be available this week ...
thanks

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

Hello Martin,

Sorry, I was wrong, I did not zoom enough to see the streets, so the map was empty smile But please let me explained this a bit detailed.

When I wrote my comment about the Hungarian map, I thought the each grey area is covering a city, but not. For example, Esztergom did not have such grey area around the city, but after zooming deep enough, I could see the streets. Sorry for my mistake.

And when I wrote my first comment, I tried the street search, I entered the city "Budapest", and there were two results:
Budapest (COUNTY)
Budapest, Budapest

First I looked a street called "Práter" in "Budapest, Budapest", and I did not found it. This is why I thought there is something with the map. Now after your comment, I checked once more, and when I searched this street in "Budapest (COUNTY)" section, I cound find it. So I was wrong, however, I think searching the street in county section is misleading. I observed this behaviour wiht a Geman city "Nürnberg", street "Rennweg", this street is located in "Nürnberg (COUNTY)". But at least, now I know where to search for it smile

Best Regards,
Tamas

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

I,ve just installed Navigator Free from Mapfactor and it works great on Pocket PC Loox N560. I've tried Romanian map and it works very well. Great job. I've abandoned OpenStreetMaps because i couldn't find a navigation software good enough, but I think I'll get back to work to Romanian map because of this software. Thanks for the work you did and please keep on the good work.

Hello Martin,
Would be possible to split the map of France (for example North, South) because his important size is a problem on low memory systems. Thank you

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

Hi,
I'm using it on my android phone and it works rather well...
Some wishes:
* acustical feedback when driving over speed limit
* possibility to avoid unpaved roads
* faster display update (0.5 sec instead of 1.0 sec?)

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

Just installed Mapfactor Navigator 0.9.100 on an Asus Transformer (Android ICS) and my first impression is "wow".  Would more impressions be appreciated? If so, what would be most interesting?

Re: "free" Navigator 10 by mapfactor.com ... uses OSM data

Hello all!
   I am involved in an almost impossible task for me: downloading earth_osm.mca. I live in Cuba and my internet speed is really slow, I keep getting "connection closed" message over and over and when this happens, I have to start downloading it again with no results. For large files (like this, which is 70Mb), I have successfully used download managers so I can recover aborted downloads, but this is not the case. Could someone please provide an alternative for this file to be downloaded using a direct link or a public FTP file? Or could someone be so kind so as to upload it to mediafire (as long as it does not violates the Terms of Use)..
This will be really appreciated!
Thanks!
