Each 2010 MAgellan Road Mate also come with the company's exclusive One Touch personalization feature allowing you to save favorite destinations, categories, and searches. (May 25, 2010) Magellan today announced the latest generation of the Road Mate series of portable vehicle navigation devices.
Products include: Summit Series Australia (Full), Summit Series New Zealand, and Summit Series Australia regional maps (Western Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Queensland, Northern Territory, New South Wales)Applies to: - e Xplorist 710 users (AU & NZ City Series maps are preloaded) - e Xplorist 610 users (only if you had purchased AU/NZ City Series maps online) - e Xplorist 510 users (only if you had purchased AU/NZ City Series and AU/NZ Summit Series maps online) Click the City Series Update link below to update your maps.The configuration file (and most of the other binary files that are part of it) are a Raima database files, specifically Raima Database Manager 4.5 [Build 17] (from the file headers).The remaining files are icons (.ico), and couple unknown files which don’t seem to have any readable header (.lay, .blx). It is a proprietary database and I could not find any free/open source tools that were able to open it up.Unfortunately, I no longer have a working Magellan device (I had an Explorist, but it no longer works) and because Magellan never released non-windows software, I have switched to using Garmin. 0CE88020: 30 74 30 2E 62 6C 78 0D 0A 00 4D 41 47 45 4C 4C 41 4E 42 3C 0t0.. Each TOC entry is 24 bytes long: 12 bytes for filename, 12 bytes for addressing.
While I find Magellan’s GPS hardware is better and more precise, Garmin offers their software on multiple platforms and supports custom built maps. The structure of the archive consists of headers, table of contents (TOC), file data, and checksums. Here is an example of a file, with some of the TOC and most of data removed: line/byte: 4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 00000000: 80 00 00 00 80 00 00 00 30 30 62 72 65 6B 77 74 00 63 6C 74 00 00 00 00 28 0C 00 00 84 00 00 00 ........00...(....... MAGELLANB The first eight bytes hold the number of files in the archive. The filename is 8 bytes for name (with ) separator, and 3 bytes for an extension.
However, GPS manufacturers often lock out this extra functionality.
