RESOLVED -- 8-bit (256 colors) map file problem

Postby disokgone » Wed Dec 10, 2008 8:13 pm

I'm new for using PathAway 4.0087 for 2 days.

I use it on Sony Clie PEG-TG-50/G and Royaldigital Bluetooth GPS.

I use a screen shot software to get map picture from a GPS/Map software and send the coordinates of 4 points with the 16-bit JPEG map picture into PathAway Map Manager to make one .PRC file.

The result of 16-bit JPEG map picture and the coordinates works fine !

So I click the menu (Map -> Change color depth -> 8-bit (256 colors)) and create another one 8-bit map .PRC to save the file size.

The 8-bit map .PRC could work for some seconds in PathAway 4.0087, but the system soon went corrupted and needed a soft reset. :cry:

I tried turn on the option for compressed (OS 3.3+), it has no effect to reduce the chance for system corruption. :(

Thanks for anyone who can solve or give a good suggestion. :D

A 8-bit (256 colors) file to test your PDA (for soft reset)

I upload a test file (about 1000 Kbytes) for your convinence to test your PDA, no GPS will be used. :D

If your PDA works well, that might mean some problems might hide in Clie's program codes. :(

just send this file to your PDA's memory card or main memory to try.

I test the the 8-bit map file on a Palm Simulator installed with Clie system files, it never got once soft reset.

I think the problem might come from Sony Clie PDA.. :oops:

Thanks to everybody here, I have to use 16-bit map file to make this software work on my Clie PDA. :)
