Hi,
I am considering purchasing an S7000, as I already have two standard SD cards loaded with V5 map portions of France, [as used in my Loomix PDA], will the unit recognise them?

Hi,

If they are .QCT format maps then they should be OK and probably .QC3 format if they are registered to the SD card. However, do read the reviews/complaints about the P7000 first, which I believe is similar, if not identical, to the S7000.

Cheers, Alan.

Hi Alan,
Thanks for your reply but I dont' understand what .QCT or .QC3 refer to. The map portions are taken from registered, V5 MM maps.
Regards, Peter.

Hi Peter,

All map files originally supplied on CD/DVD use Memory Map's "Quickchart" format with a .QCT file extension (you may need to change Windows Explorer's settings slightly to show the extension).

Files downloaded from the Digital Map Shop (and some preloaded onto SD cards) use a new encrypted format with a .QC3 file extension (actually there is also a small .QCT file, but the main map image is in a .QC3 file with the same name).

Both of these file types are "v5" and can be used with v5.4.+ software, but earlier versions of the software can only read .QCT files.

Cheers, Alan.

Hi Alan,
Thanks for your help, all is now a lot clearer!
The reviews of the Adventure S7000 seem to leave a lot of doubt in my mind, as to wether its worth the risk in buying one or not. I would have thought or hoped that MM should have had sorted it by now.
Regards,
Peter.
