Hi,

I live in Santo Domingo in D.R. and even though using N82 + Mgmaps + Openstreetmaps have been good the Openstreetmap for Santo Domingo still has many streets without any identification (even though some friends and me are trying to identify as many as possible).

Well the thing is that I have an excellent map of the city in pdf format that works perfectly on my laptop but Im looking to use it in my N82 using mgmaps to take advantage of the GPS capabilities of the application.

Any of you know how could I do this? or how could I use the pdf map with any other GPS application that work with my cellphone?

Thanks in advance,

You should first extract the image from the PDF with Adobe Acrobat or similar tools. Then you can calibrate the image and split it into tiles with a tool like Microsoft's MapCruncher, the generated tiles can be used with MGMaps. See http://forum.mgmaps.com/viewtopic.php?t=725, tutorials #6 and #7 for more info on that.
