Hi,
I am trying to create a route file externally to then manually transfer onto a M-Nav 760 device.
The route files contain lines similar to that below which define the points on a route.

COUNTRY="Australia" CITY="Fake City" PLZ="3000" STREET="Made up street" HOUSE_NO="1" TYPE="0" PT="144.35xxxx -36.29xxxx" IDPT="107638962 -29083039"

The device actually uses the the IDPT field to plot the location on the map but I cannot determine how this field is calucated from the GPS location provided in the PT field.

Does anyone know how this is done?

Thanks,

Thanks, but I do have access to a user manual. They don't contain what I am after.

I am trying to build it into an existing computer program which contains a databse of various locations including their GPS locations.

The route files stored on the Navman are of the attached format.
I just need to know how the IDPT field is generated so that I can automate the route creation and have them uploaded onto the various navman units we use.

Thanks

Google maps will let you do the same thing and you can send the "directions" to a car, phone, email, and even GPS.
