    I have just downloaded Galileo Offline Maps app (it's for jailbroken phones/pads), and then purchased the comprehensive package of add-ons. I'm sure it will be fine for my needs. After that, I downloaded the Windows application, Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC), which will create custom maps from a number of sources, which can then be transferred to the Galileo app. However... the MOBAC program only comes with a painfully sparse and terse set of instructions, and I can't figure out how to get ANYTHING out of it.

    Has anyone here had any experience with either of these applications and/or could give me some tips on getting started?

    Perhaps this topic should be in the Hacking Forum, but thought I'd start here and see if anyone had any advice.

    Thanks,

    I guess I should have been a little more clear on my lack of understanding issue. It's not the Galileo app I can't figure, it's the Mobile Atlas Creator program that I can't get a handle on. It has a "readme" for instructions which provide about no guidance at all. I probably should send MOBAC folks an email, but that program is an open source free one, and I'm not likely to get much help there. But thanks anyway for the replies.

    [[ EDIT ]] ok... now I see in Galileo user manual the rudimentary instructions for using MOBAC. Good point all... to 'read the __ manual" Thanks again.
