I have been using the Fugawi UK O.S. maps (50000) and am generally very pleased with it. However, there are some features which I would like but the lack of useful documentation re the PPC version makes it difficult to tell if any of these features already exist - I haven't found them yet.

1. PC Version. Because of the size limitation imposed by the O.S. license I have split the map up into smaller chunks that are within the license terms and also handleable by the PPC.
I select an area of the map on the PC and EDIT|Export Selection to PDA and create a file containing the relevant map area. It would be really nice to be able to OPEN one of these Exported files on the PC just to confirm that I have selected the correct area without the necessity to transfer it to the PPC in order to check it.
FILE|OPEN doesn't seem to give that option.

2. PPC version. The Gazeteer lookup facility on the PC is good - but I would really like that facility on the PPC version too. Is it there? Can't see it myself.

3.PPC Version. I have a Dell Axim with a Holux CF GPS and one use is to load the appropriate O.S. map sections into the SD card and go for a walk. WE travel in a Motor Caravan so having done one of these walks we may not be home for some time and it would be really nice to be able to measure the length of the walk. I turn Tracking ON and it shows a Blue line as a Trail marker but I don't see how I can see the length of that track (walk) without transferring it back to the PC.

4. It would be nice to be able to do a height profile on the PPC whilst planning a walk.
