How to convert *.mp files to *.osm.map?

Hi there!


I`ve recently discovered opensource maps of New Zealand, that seem to have far more details and POI`s then the OSM vectormaps.


The maps can be downloaded from the NZ Open GPS Project (http://nzopengps.org/index.php) as *.img for garmin or in Polish format *.mp (this is a vector map format, I`ve learned)


Now the question:


Do you know how to convert this *.mp (or the *.img) to a format (should be a vector map) that is suitable for locus pro?


It should be a simple way, I`ve found some description to do it, but I can`t because my computer skills are not good enough for that :(


bye

Hi Robert,


Unfortunately I have no experience how to convert mp format to Locus vector format. I’ve done a little research and maybe following lings could help.


You can convert *.mp format to *.osm format using mp2osm app. http://pinns.co.uk/osm/mp2osm.html


After that you can convert *.osm format to *.map format using osmosis with map-writer plugin. How to do this is described http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/wi....


Then simple copy generated *.map file to your device into the folder called "/Locus/mapsVector/"


Cheers


Petr
