osm file with Locus Pro
« on: September 19, 2012, 05:47:23 »
Hi,
I'm living in NZ and the support with WIFI and/or cheap permanent online solutions is quite rare.
So I needed an offline navigation solution. There are some maps supported by the LINZ their extension is osm (open street map)
I downloaded that stuff and tried to open it with Locus Pro without success.
There are several programs out their to convert the osm files.
My questions:
Which  extension does Locus work with?
and
Whats the best Linux or windows program to do it properly?
   
Thank you very much,
Best, Martin

Hi, thanks for the quick reply!
need to try that maps. Thanks for the link. Do you know what format Locus expects and how to get it out of an .osm file?
Like osmosis or something similar?
