I am considering buying the Fugawi OS map based software but am concerned about the restriction on the file size that can be used on the PDA. Presumably the whole of the maps for southern England can be loaded onto an SD card so how does the 1600 km restriction work? How would I go about tracking my position on a trip from, say Bristol to Portsmouth?
The Memory Map product does not appear to have this limitation. Is it to do with licencing from the Ordnance Survey?

Mike,

You are right. The Ordnance Survey impose the 1600KM2 limitation in their licencing of the map data :x . Amongst other things like not being able to calibrate your own maps etc.

The Fugawi product was released after the Memory-Map software and is subject to a newer license agreement.

That said though there is nothing stopping you creating lots of 1600KM2 tiles covering the area you want and loading them onto the store card.
