Marco Polo Grosser Reiseplaner
Marco Polo Grosser Reiseplanner are extremely detailed digital maps of Europe, split into 5 regions (with Germany having its very own region!). These maps where the first map types which Navit supported.
Note that Navit can only read Grosser Reiseplanner versions 2002/2003 to 2007/2008. Newer versions are currently incomptible with Navit.For more detailed information, including how to setup Navit to use Grosser Reiseplanner, see the dedicated Navit European maps wiki page.
This is a detailed map of Europe. Probably your best bet for now if you're in EMEA. Works with version from 2003/2004 to 2007/2008 versions.
You can buy the latest version from here: http://www.amazon.de/o/ASIN/3829731434/navit-21 (remember the little reward please ;))
Warning: Version 2008/2009 has a different map format and does not yet work with navit
This manual was written with a german version of Grosser Reiseplanner aside. So it may differ a bit.
- Change directory to where DVD is mounted
- Unpack data2.cab with
unshield x travel/data2.cab
- Now, you should get a directory named like DIRLAN_GER. It contains:
- The dem.map folder with all the majors roads and towns of Europe...
- ...and five smpX.smp folders, which contain the details of countries:
- smp1: DK,S,N,IS,FIN,N
- smp2: F,E,GBZ,P,AND,MC
- smp3: Germany
- smp4: CZ,SK,RSM,EST,GEO,LV,LT,MD,RUS,UA,BY,GR,H,I,RO,CH,A,PL,AL,MT,CY,BG,FL,SRB,MNE,HR,SLO,BIH,MK,TR,AZ,AM,V
- smp5: NL,B,GB,L,IRL
- Update your navit.xml file accordingly. A sample for Germany would be:
<mapset enabled="yes"> <map type="mg" enabled="yes" data="/path/dirlan_ger/dem.map" /> <map type="mg" enabled="yes" data="/path/dirlan_ger/dem.map/smp3.smp" /> </mapset>
Optional: You can save some space (up to 2G) by deleting all the *d60* files. They are not needed.
