How to import a route into mapfactor navigator free (Android mobile phone)???
  • I tried that way:

    generate a kmz-file in google earth

    convert this kmz-file with GPSies in a csv-file

     with digger qt:

    create a new import (named 123)   driver type: comma separated values driver in UTF-8 encoding (CSV)

    insert the csv-file   Coordinae system: WGS84 (dd*mm,mmm) 

    Source data columns: Longitude-Longitude Latitude-Latidude  

    single icon for all records
    Browse image: insert an icon-file      detail und 1:200000

    data source type: user data

    source column 1 - 3 nur Table activated

    compress imported data ticking off

    save configuration and run import pressed
    indication: import finished
    mca-file imported into mobilephone - navigator


    but there is nothing in my routes.

    It doesn´t work. Can you help my, where is the fault?

    Thanks ceefle

    Usually you don't generate a route with DiggerQT, you generate a kind of a map. This one contains icons or line, depending on the source you are working with. This generated map shows its symbols on the navigatorfree-maps on top. For a track, something like a route without routing-function, you see a line, as long as you gave it a color.

    You wrote "single icon for all records". This seems to me, that your csv-file contains waypoints and not a track or route. In this case you should see lots of your icons on the map. But if you want a line for your route, you have to insure, that you import a route or track to DiggerQT.

    Converting "kmz" into "gpx" is easly done with Routeconverter ( Make sure you export the gpx as a route or track! You even may use GPSies, but export as GPX Track or GPX route!

    *-:)Very nice is to generate a route with . Here you can export a gpx-file based on OpenStreetMap-maps.

    Import the gpx-file into DiggerQT. DiggerQT should tell you in the second window "Imported data meaning: Meaning of imported data is line"

    On the next window double-click into the empty white cell under "Style" and play with the possible values there. Good is "line width for detail zoom = 8, minimal line width = 4, shrinking ratio = 10". Important is the "fill colour". Change it into a nice (visible) color like green (15D900). Confirm with "OK"
    I usually change the value from "Maximal zoom" into 1 000 000, so the line is good visible, when zooming far out.

    Next window just activate "Name" and after that generate your map.

    Hope, this helps.

  • Hello crocodilefarm,

    Thank you for your answer, but how can I import a gpx-file into digger qt?

    It shows only following data source type:

    Arcinfo Driver

    Comma Separated Value Driver

    sBase Driver

    Driver for set of JPEG files

    MapInfo Driver

    Microsoft Access Driver

    Microsoft Exel Driver


    Postgre SQL

    SQ Lite version 3 or



    or it is better to use an other digger version (which one)?

    After creating the map, in which folder do I have to import the map?

    In Navigator - data?


    With kind regards




  • Hi ceefle,

    if you don't work with Digger 12, than download it from here:

    With this version you can import gpx-files.

    Put your own created map into that folder, where all the other mca-files are.
  • Thank you very much,

    it works wonderful.

    Again, thank you for your help.

    With best regards, ceefle
