HYDERABA.EXE holds 2 maps covering Hyderabad and Secunderabad to street
level detail, with verbal landmarks such as Begumpet Airport and the University.

Robin will correct the existing landmarks and add more. A third map gives coverage
out to towns like Sangareddi, Shankarpalli and Ibrihimpatan, and the International
Airport. A demonstration, based on simulated GPS data created by clicking on the
maps, can be played back by: Control-A, double click on HYDERABA.NME then
click on REPLAY, watch and listen. This journey travels between the two reference
positions, taken from the third DCW-based map, used for rough calibration of the
two detailed maps (road near water, and railway crossing). The data is for use by

Robin is grateful to Andreas, Wolfgang, Budi and Tanto for their help in testing this experimental mapping with GPS.

JAKARTA1.EXE holds 6 maps, including street level samples, and a
demonstration in JAKARTA.NME. All users should use JAKARTA1.EXE
JAKARTA2.EXE holds 7 more maps and 1 sound, and may also be added.
JAKARTA3.EXE holds 6 more experimental maps - add it if you wish.
JAKARTA4.EXE holds one very old map - not reccomended,
since it is less up-to-date and will take priority over some maps.
Here is a tip for those of you already using the old JAKARTA.EXE or JAVA.EXE mapping: if you simply add the new mapping, some of the old maps, like JAKARTAC "Jakarta City" will take priority, unless you zoom out (Z key) to the later maps. Here is easiest way to remove old maps: delete JAKARTAC.DES (and if you wish JAKARTAC.BMP). Delete MAPS.DIR. Next time you run GPSS, it will automatically make a new MAPS.DIR based on the DES files it finds.
JAPAN.EXE holds 28 maps and 53 sounds covering all Japan. It is based on the

a new demonstration for Ctrl-A REPLAY in JAPAN.NME. Other changes from the
old EXE downloads include avoiding replacing GPSS Baseline files that have changed.

It holds 1072 places, to within 1 mile accuracy, in the Tokyo area.

We are pleased to report that Singapore mapping and use of GPSS is again freely available for those in direct email contact with Robin. Exclusive use of GPSS within Singapore by GPS Technologies terminated at the end of 1998. You may wish to contact Jeffrey Tan of GPS Technologies via contact information on our news page. They have the 'Searcher' Car-PC product, more detailed mapping, and may have alternative GPS Software to GPSS. Anyone wishing to use GPSS within Singapore will need to contact Robin, to obtain information to permit GPSS to be used, since it has protection against unauthorised use.
It is suggested that you download and use the 4.9 Baseline of GPSS.
Here are 6 maps and 7 sounds, with a little more detail than the one map
originally on this web site. A demonstration is in SINGAPOR.NME, and

A demonstration is in SUMATRA.NME for replay with Control-A,
but when used with GPS, GPSS will automatically select the right map.
