    There are 3 version of UMP:
    • NI - this is full version of road map
    • "ogonki" - this is version with polish national characters
    • topo - this is map of Poland only, with addtional POI


    Each version can be downloaded as gmapsupp.img or files for Mapsource.

    thx Kanopus@
    Very nice alternative vs. commercial maps,
    have started downloading just now, will try later, am at work now.

    First test of it:
    -Poland coved pretty good, one can drive with it,
    -many useful POI with icons (polish lang. only),
    -graphic design very simple but that what is necessary,
    -accuracy: for now can say it finds my way home, other aeries will check later.

    As is seen on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] this is some kind of a project "made by users".
    This is a good match to commercial maps.
    Well, good luck guys!
    Yo!

    In map directory for Mapsource you will find some batches for modifying map graphics. You can run:
    • skorka-normal.bat - standard design
    • skorka-reczniak.bat - design for outdoor GPS
    • skorka-mini.bat - minimal design
    • skorka-wylacz.bat - turn off custom design
    Thanks, Kanopus

    UMP is a very very interesting map!!!

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    It is the only Garmin map I know which comes with an online installer. Download ump-pcpl-setup.exe (approx. 1Mb) and run it. Now you can choose where you want to install the map and which version of the map you want to install. I did choose the proposed "Wersja samochodowa z ogonkami", there are other versions also but Google Translator was not very helpful to understand the meaning of the versions. "samo" means "self" in some slavic languages so I suppose "samochodowa" means autorouting. Please could someone of you who is speaking polish have a look at it?

    After that the installer is downloading the necessary files - you can see what is going on in a dos-window - installs the map, installs several bat-files in the map-folder for choosing the typ-file you want to use, eg. skorka-normal.bat and installs an Update UMP-pcPL-icon on the desktop.

    Done. And if you want to update the map after some time run Update UMP-pcPL and only these map tiles are downloaded and installed which have been changed since your latest update.

    The map itself is an one-in-all map especially for the use of travellers, any kind of traveller. Autorouting, information about waterways and even the runways of some airports are displayed. And all that not only for Poland but for all Europe almost, very comprehensive information for in and close to Poland, getting lesser the further away from Poland you are, but eg. the Tower of London is displayed. And it is useful information: eg. airport Berlin Tegel: CNE says "Berlin-Tegel Terminal a 0-15", UMP shows WERE any single terminal is. But it does not show where Terminal B is...

    Again: a very very interesting map!

    @Kanopus: thank you!

    When installing the map choose english language, NOT german. In english you get the description of the map and the skin / typ-file in english language, if you choose german then the description is in polish...
