    You are right. My first information seems to be a little outdated.
    Can you confirm that on governemental request routing is allowed to use correction algorithms (under NDA), but mapping must be left offsetted?

    1-3 :-)
    4: I did. The answer was a little bit like 1-3. He told me that in China things can be of legal issue without being explicit forbidden. So there would be a risk in doing anything not being explicit allowed. Is this interpretation right?

    Not sure what do you mean by correction algorithm? The official map itself is never corrected. Instead, the coordinates received from the GPS chipset are added by the same amount of shift (i.e. the same x'=f(x, y) and y'=g(x, y) transformation) to match the shifted map. As a result it appears no shift to the user, but the recorded track will have shifted coordinates (well, newer devices provide both coordinates before and after the addition now). The code to do the transformation is written and compiled by the government then licensed to the GPS device maker.

    I am not a lawyer, but that's the common interpretation.

    No, not included. In fact, JCV files currently do not work with Venus map - also on my to-do list to fix.

    Latest English version is 2011.40, available at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    There are no full files released for English version. However, you should be able to use the same language neutral files such as gmap3d.img, etc. from the corresponding Chinese 2011.40 version. See post #3 of the link below.

    If you have a Garmin China made GPS device/firmware or your navigation software is the Asia version of GMXT then download the official map, otherwise download the Venus map.

    Don't run the .exe, extract it using winrar or 7zip. From Post #1: "Content of type 1 [2.91 GB (3.135.566.246 byte) once extracted: etc...". The basemap is of course in the 'Basemap' folder, all other files including the locked detail map are in the 'Map Data' folder.
