Hi Cesar,Sectional charts for Fly! II are very similiar to the original. You can find my old tutorial at http://members.shaw.ca/fly2/. Most of the instructions apply. I never did find the time to update the tutorial.For Fly! 2 you can increase the dpi of the image scan for clearer maps if you wish. I'd start with 100dpi and ignore the step where I reduced the image size to save disk space.It has been a while but off the top of my head, here are the changes:1. The .map file has a few added entries. Wordpad or any other word processor can be used to view the files and see the differences.2. Map images are now saved in .ecw format for better compression. A link to a converter is provided on the home page of the above site.3. Maps are no longer placed into .pod or .epd files. Just drop the .ecw and corresponding .map file into the Fly!2 map folder.http://members.shaw.ca/fly2/images/snoopyace.gifRob Westhouse, VE5VKSaskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada"Land of Living Skies"

http://www.ermapper.com/cgi-bin/products/i....cfm?prodid=139Use ECW Compressor v2.3 to convert your sectional image to .ecw format. If you want to view .ecw images, download ER Viewer v2.0c or a plugin for your favourite paint program.The ECW Compress program is a free stand-alone program that enables you to create compressed Enhanced Compressed Wavelet (ECW) version 2.0 compressed image files. The free ECW Compress program lets you compress images of up to 500MB in size. To compress larger images, you need to use ER Mapper 6.0, which includes the unlimited size ECW Compression Wizard to compress GB or TB images. ER Mapper also provides preparation tools for mosaicing and balancing; the free ECW Compress program compresses single images at a time. http://members.shaw.ca/fly2/images/snoopyace.gifRob Westhouse, VE5VKSaskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada"Land of Living Skies"
