Maps and GPS - Memory-Map


"Memory-Map" is a family of GPS applications for Windows, Android, Iphone, Ipad, Linux and Mac. In this section “Memory-Map” I will share some experience I have with Memory-Map Explorer/Navigator (the application for Windows). In the links to the left you will find some Memory-Map related information, some maps for Memory-Map an some conversion tools.

My experience with Memory-Map®

More than fourteen years ago I bought digital topo maps of the Canadian Rocky Mountains (published by eTopo®). On the CD-Rom was stripped version of the Memory-Map Explorer® packed. This was my start using this kind of applications. I tried several programs for using raster topo maps like Fugawi®, OZI® and some others. After a while Memory-Map suited me best. First I bought a license for the Dutch topo map. A year later I bought a second license, the European one with the option to import and use third party maps. From that moment on I was able to create my own maps and got interested in to find raster topo maps in the internet. The information in my project “Maps and GPS” is the result of this hobby.

Memory-map is a collection of applications. First there is the PC version. I use it for creating and calibrating maps and for planning purpose. For hiking I use the Android version on my mobile phone (with GPS sensor). As a co-pilot in our car I use the IPad/IOS version to find directions in the countryside. In earlier days I had a GPS mobile phone with Windows CE and used the corresponding app for Memory-Map. In spring 2022 a new version was launched: Memory-Map for All. This is a  cross platform version (Windows, Android, Linux, iOS and Mac). At the moment I am experimenting with this version. It looks promising.

So, now you know a little about my experience with this program.

Support and Help-desk

When you encounter troubles using Memory-Map I suggest check the help-files which came with you application. If you don't find a solution try the "FAQ's and Knowledge Base" on Memory-Maps website. Last regular resource of help is the support-desk.

Stuart Greig published on his website "lonewalker" an alternative user guide, which is very useful.

My own experience concentrates around the subjects calibration and creating your own map. For these subjects you may contact me You may also have a look in "The cookbook" of my application "Maps for Memory-Maps"
