    Default Detailed TT raster overlays

    I collected a few raster overlays in a better detail level compared to the world-raster that is floating around the net.
    The following regions are included:
    Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada-Alaska, USA and Mexico, Poland, Russia-Baltics and Finland, SE-Asia, Turkey, Southern Africa, Europe

    To use the overlays copy the files from the corresponding folder in the archiv to the folder "raster" on your device - if not existing, create it.
    When zooming out the street maps disappear and the raster overlay is shown.

    Download the archive [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Finally managed to get detaild overlays with a reasonable accuracy.
    The overlay will get a bit blurry once you zoomed out so the names can't be read anymore.
    This is due to the fact that the image shrinks, so the detail goes down the drain - I can't fix that without creating seperate overlays for the zoom levels.
    Creating low level zooms is virtually impossible as the accuracy decreases the low the zoom gets.
    This is due to the source and neither Google nor Bing create accurate position data at those levels.

    Created, detailed overlays:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] created from OVI maps at zoom level 9
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] created from OVI maps at zoom level 9
    The above overlays go to almost lowest zoom setting, after that it is only the normal TT map view.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] this is a TT overlay of the whole world set to take over from the above overlay till lowest zoom.

    You can adjust the settings for when to show the overlay:
    At line 6 (zoom in) and 7 (zoom out) in the .sat file are the those settings.
    The lower the numbers the earlier the overlay is visible.
    0 means always visible, 65535 means "world view".
