Have been a fan of Mapopolis from waaaay back. Bought a NavCard for my Treo 650 a couple years back and fell in love. Most reecently I upgraded my phone to a T-Mobile Dash and to my surprise Mapopolis is folding. In a pinch as I obviuously need maps for the smartphone app. Is there a way to use or convert my existing Palm NavCard maps for use in WM6 or PPC? What can I do at this point? Hate the competitors and would rather stick with Mapopolis since PPC maps DO exist albeit demo only? Whats that about? Sounds like a dirty little trick. Tease us with a demo version of the Nav map and then close up shop? Someone please help. Thanks.
There is nothing you can do with the Mapopolis maps, expecially those that are in the NavCard format. You will have to change programs completely. To be honest, one of the reasons, I think, that Mapopolis closed up was that it was so far behind in its user interface and in usability in general. If you try out something like TomTom or iGuicance I think you will be amazed at how far ahead other suppliers are.
You can't do much with the NavCard maps because they are in a different format than what the other Mapopolis programs use. I don't think they ewver came out with a PocketPC version of the software.
If you happen to have regular maps for Mapopolis Navigator, you can just rename the *.pdb file to *.mlp and they will work. It has been a while and I think .mlp is the Pocket PC file extension for maps; if not use whatever the normal PPC file extension is.
