OVERVIEW

Here is where you can find a lot of map overlay files for your mapping software or stand-alone GPS. Most of our files are RV-related and compiled by fellow SKP?s ? without their help, this project would not be possible.

All files are on the DOAI server, hosted by Fleetwood. All files are zipped, so you will need to unzip them before you can use them.

The file download page contains a column for the email address of the person that is maintaining the file. Please email that person with any changes or new information. Also, there is a README column. Many files have a README file that you should review as it contains information pertinent to the map file.

There are five specific files you can download for each map overlay (such as Passport, FlyingJ, etc):

  1. Delorme Draw Files can only be used by Delorme Street Atlas
  2. MS Streets Files can only be used by MS Streets and Trips (Note 1)
  3. CoPilot Files - Text files for import to CoPilot (Note 1)
  4. Text Files - for use with GPSBabel to convert to other formats
  5. Google Earth for use with Google Earth

Note 1 CoPilot files are text files that can also be imported into other applications

Also, note that app=specific files are created with the latest software versions and may not be compatable with earlier versions - if this affects you, you will need to download the text file and import into your map app.
