[Loadstone] Loadstone Digest, Vol 37, Issue 16

Hi,

In regards to the site that Lulu mentioned, I found a file called 
australia-oceania.osm.bz2, but does anybody know how to change it so we 
can use it? (IE make it smaller or how do I open it and then convert it 
to be used in Loadstone?) I also have a uniden gps receiver and a garmin 
one, and want to know, can the files on those be converted into 
Loadstone format? (as the unit itself is useful to my wife in the car, 
but I need something I can put on my phone and use with speech!)

Also, does anybody know of any osm files for New Zealand (or even just 
the North Island)? I have uploaded points that I have created myself in 
Loadstone for the New Plymouth and central Taranaki area, but am looking 
to see if there are some more already done?

Thanks
Gene NZ

I get about two to three hours of continuous use with a freshly charged battery.  After that, I lose the connection.  When I turn the receiver on, I get "connection error."  Charging the battery seems to solve the problem.  Therefore, I believe this is due to a dead battery.

> Wow! A 3GB file! It'll probably take days at least to convert that much data&  probably a very long time to import that into loadstone. Anyway, just make sure that the values that I specified earlier are larger than 3000 mb. Just to avoid such issues, I changed all of the values that I specified earlier to 10000 mb. Which country is this 3gb map representing?
