    Ok, that is at least something, but for most of the states it hard to impossible to find good and detailed maps for free.
    But I can feel with you as my sister had to rely on satellite internet for a few years in the bush too.
    Download speeds painfully slow, drop outs and total overpricing gave her the frustation on a regular base.
    A neighbour does regular downloads for friends in the bush and uses AU post and USB sticks to get them what they need.
    At this stage I start to admit that the OSM project really starts to become a serious map provider.
    Due to provided track logs their database now covers at least 60% more tracks in the areas I checked.
    And in the general mapping area Ozi is fighting to keep their market share as more and more Android and Iphone apps pop up that offer free and paid sources with often easier user interfaces.
    Ozi should go the online way as well and integrate online sources similar to what Global Mapper or free map downloader already offer.
    A simply click and download is still easier than the manual creation of maps - at least for most.
    Especially the "forced way" of updating to the latest Ozi tools is a step in the wrong direction.
    Adding features is one thing, upping the version numbers only for new DRM protections a totally different story.
    You now have to pay to export into unprotected formats and not even in this version you are able to save unprotected OZFX2 or OZFX3 files.
    Only because more and more programs decided to support the unprotected Ozi format.
    But for example creating your own overlays to intergrate in a map is made impossible if your base map or overlay was created in the protected formats.
    I'm slowly moving away from Ozi and only use it for maps I share online in case they had a different format.

    I see your point M8 and if I can't upload my Tengrah geo maps then will look other places but I will be able to use OLDER versions to get me where I need to go huh.

    Release Version 3.95.6c (February 2015)

    • Fixed - the previous version was not setting the corner markers correctly for new map calibrations.
    • Much improved track handling, which includes creation of track points and their manipulation.
    • Improved Track Control, new options, resizing of dialog and columns.
    • Improved Point Set handling, which includes point creation and their manipulation.
    • Improved Point Control, new options, resizing of dialog and columns.
    • The Maximum point sets have been increased to 1000.
    • The Selection Control has new options for above changes.
    • Some options on the Select Menu have been removed and are now only available on the Selection Control.
    • Added a "Recently Used Map" list, same as the "Load Recent Map" menu option but in a dialog list.
      • Provides a list of the "Recently Used maps" in a dialog for instant access.
      • Allows you to remove a Map from the list.
      • The new option is on the Load Menu (below "Load Recent Map").
      • Also available as an option for the User Toolbar (you need to add it to the toolbar yourself).

    • Added an option in Configuration to "Load Last Data" (defaults to On). On OziExplorer start up will load :
      • the last waypoint file
      • the last route file
      • the last event file
      • the last track files
      • the last point files

    • Maps now remember their last position when closed and reopen to the same position when opened.
    • The "Save Map Open Position" option on the map menu has been removed.
    • A new OziExplorer "Update to a new version" method has been added.
      • To update to this version it will have to be done manually as the new method is not in the previous version of OziExplorer.
      • However for the next OziExplorer update OziExplorer will download the update and run the setup for you.
      • You will then run through the setup options as usual.

    I am struggling with this new feature:

    Maps now remember their last position when closed and reopen to the same position when opened.

    I am using the latest version (3.95.6d) but it doesn't remember anything, no position nor zoomscale. I tested it with many maps and it just doesn't work. On many occasions the map even opens with zoomscale at 5%.
    After closing OziExplorer, position and zoomscale are being saved at the last line of the map file:

    example: MLP,Map Last Position,44,2008133,5,1491500,100

    OziExplorer just doesn't seem to read/use this information when opening a map.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    Yes, these settings are enabled by default.
    I just did a clean install of v3.95.6d, opened a map and zoomed in 100% at my home location. After closing the position and zoomscale are written in the map file but Ozi doesn't read them amd opens the map at the topleft position with zoomscale at 5%

    Does it work for you Ignatron?
