Notes for eXplorist 110

Detail maps need to be manually entered to the file Touch.mdc on the eXplorist 110.
As the eXplorist 110 does not have an option in the interface to select a detail map, you will need to manually edit the file Touch.mdc and enter the file name of the map you want to have displayed. Edit the section [IMAGE] and add the respective file name of the map:
For example the map of Germany (filename: TOSMDS_0612.imi) + small Europe Basemap (filename: EUBM.mgi)
[BASE] 0=EUBM.mgi [PC] [IMAGE] 0=TOSMDS_0612.imi
Please also take notice of the application which automatically does this for you:
