Title: Australian KMZ maps
Post by: pprass on February 06, 2015, 07:27:09
I need some help as I don't know what I am doing.
I downloaded the Overview Australian topo maps from the "Store".  It loaded it into the Data - Items section of Locus and are shown as fiollows:
AUSTRALIAN_250K_DATASET
 - map index.kml
 - si53-12 yorke peninsula spe...
 - sj55-033 tallangatta.kmz
When I go to to the Vector map section, I don't see the map and I can't see how to view the map.
btw - I have all of my maps on a Removable SD card, so I thought that the map had downloaded on the Asus's Internal card, but still couldn't find it.
Can someone see what I am doing that is wrong or a step that is missing please?
Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Yes - I looked in Data - Items and that is what I can see, but how do I get the map to show?

Thanks for that, but I only have:
- si53-12 yorke peninsula spe...
 - sj55-033 tallangatta.kmz - (please see attachment).
which are just 2 blocks and when I open them I just see that small part with lots of points and green lines - please see attachement.

If you don't need the grid - just unload index.
If you need more areas - just download what you need.

OK - thanks.  I'll download again and see if I get all of those files.
