The first 6 commands are New, Open, Open Recent, Save, Save As and Merge.
Open and Merge commands allow user to open map files in Mapwel MPW and other formats. Use Merge command to combine two or more maps. As max. size of raster image in Mapwel software is limited to 30000 x 30000 pixels, the image may be sampled down (lose details) when files are merged together.
Current version of Mapwel software supports the following formats:
Mapwel software allows to load osm file and upload it to Garmin GPS, or export into any of supported formats (see above table).
Upload Map to GPS converts the map data into proper GPS format and allows user to upload one or several MPW and/or IMG map files into the GPS unit. This command is intended mainly for compilation and uploading of current map from the work area of Mapwel into the GPS. There is also another similar command Upload IMG Files to GPS available in the Tools menu. This command launches separate MapUpload software utility for loading one or multiple IMG files to the Garmin GPS. IMG files are maps already compiled into format compatible with Garmin GPS units.
Countries and Cities. This command is used to define table of countries, states, cities, zip codes and their mutual links. This table is necessary for creation of Cities and POI (points of interest) objects.
Export Map. Use this command to export map into Garmin IMG, Google Earth KML or cGPSmapper MP map file. This function works only in Advanced version of Mapwel software. The GPS unit to which the registration is bound must be connected and switched on.
The last command is Exit, which follows the usual Windows convention prompting user to name the map and choose a location.
