7 years later I experience the same problem - and while looking for a solution I find a thread I don't even remember I've contributed to :D

Is there still a chance to improve the RMAP handling?
Once more I found a (r)map (not locked!) that doesn't work in Locus.
After restarting the app I get a list of problems encounter during the last run - but for that particular map I only get "Unknown Error" (or in german "Unbekanntes Problem"

Are there any further error logs I could provide to solve this problem?

Hi,
7 years and nothing extra has changed :). If you want, we may try it. Anyway, I'll need some small map I may use for the test.

not locked rmaps from compeGPS or created with MOBAC are working fine with me, no problem.

Hello tannenzäpfle, glad to read it works as expected :)

@Seppel
thanks for two maps. First map "HT_Test.RMAP" hopefully fixed (in next version it should work), it was not too hard. Second map "Test.rmap" use completely unknown internal structure and because RMAP format is not publicly documented, I have no idea how to correctly read this map, sorry.

Many thanks for your efforts.

Too bad that the larger one won't be possible to read, since that's the format CompeGPS LAND (the PC/Mac software from Compe) creates. Would it be possible to extend the error message to something like "unsupported RMAP format"? That way the user gets a bit more information than just "unknown error".

The smaller one was also created by using CompeGPS LAND - but the the original map probably was created with Mobac.It seems depending on the source material used, LAND creates different formats of output  :P

PS: both maps shouldn't be considered locked since LAND tells you that is not allowed to create a snippet from a locked map ...

I've improved message, no worry.

And yes, they are no locked. I can read it's content, but in this case, I have unfortunately no idea what it means.
