    Installing maps

    Good morning

    Maybe it is just me and it's really early and all, but I don't find any info on how to actually add maps to FD. I have PPC Version of Destinator and installed FD, but it only has the London map it comes with.

    So how do I add a map?

    Thanks for your help

    1.Put your new map in the folder Destinatorapps/destinator
    You can see the London map in there also

    2. Run FD, go to menu-next-switch map and select your map
    The road is long but we are getting there.

    You don't install the destinator program, just find the zip file of the map you want and extract it into a folder in C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator

    So you end up with C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\UK with a few files in it.

    Oh, don't forget to put the WCE.txt file in there too..

    :P Figured it out myself and removed the post, didn't want to spam the forum
    with posts...

    As I knew London was a map that came with FreeDrive I just
    searched for the .poi and found the folder where it was supposed to be..
    Started it up, changed maps and everything worked.. Almost anyways..

    Cheers
    /p
