    Default How to get an unlock code and contributors map. Revised January 2009.

    after you have submitted your contribution send a pm to me with your gps id in the subject of the message.
    please copy paste the link of your contribution (IF YOUR PM DOES NOT CONTAIN THE LINKS, WE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO REPLY) so it can be checked
    ....

    hope this is clear...

    In order for your data to be considered as "upgrade worthy", it must be not yet in the map.
    For the latest version, download the demo map. If your data is not there, it's good. If it is, your tracks better be of a better resolution.

    hope this is even clearer

    Revision January 2009

    As i am a seaman and will go back on board in the near future, i will not be able to process any unlock codes.
    Please send all your unlock requests to THE JUDGE who shall review and judge them and in due time revert with an unlock code if your data is "upgrade worthy".
    Please bear in mind that this might up to 2 weeks in a worst case scenario. Hopefully all request should be handled and taken care of within a week. Hope you all understand.


    So in short: please do not pm me anymore for unlock codes as I wont be here to receive and process them. thanks for understanding

    Hi Jan,

    Great Idea! now we have a forum for contributors. I was wondering when you'll come up with the next big update on the maps.

    I have two GPS units. Is the unlock code specific and tied to the unit or can I use the same contributors map to both GPS?

    the code is specific to the unit, if you contribute enough you will get 2 codes.
    gotta ask nicely though

    Sir Jan,

    I'm a newbie and would like to ask where I could find my GPS ID. I am using a HTC Diamond with Garmin Mobile XT on it.

    Thanks!

    Hello. I've had a Garmin eTrex Vista for a couple of years now. And I'm raring to contribute my waypoints, even just so much as to be of help to other GPS users here in the Philippines.

    May I ask how would I know if a waypoint has already been contributed? I wouldn't want to seem redundant with my input.

    short version : no

    long version: read the how to section,all will clear up and become clear. then after contributing, you get the upgraded map
