The regional map window is used when using moving map (tracking) mode, it shows your
position on a map loaded in the regional map window. When not using moving map mode it
centers on the center of the main map.
I designed it to have display a map which covers a very large area so when tracking you
can see where you are positioned relative to local landmarks (towns etc).
Loading a Map into the regional map window.
Select the Show Regional Map Window on the Moving Map menu.
If the window is already opened then right click on the window to show a menu where the
Open Map option can be selected.
Saving the Window Position
Open the window by loading a map into it, position the window where required and close
it by pressing the X in the top right hand corner, from now on the window
will be positioned in the same place until changed again using the same method.
Resizing the Window
Right click on the window to show a menu, select the size from the list of options. The
size you select is remembered from now on until changed again.
While any of the normal type of map images can be loaded in the regional map window the
image is always fully loaded into memory. This means that TIF, BSB, Maptech and OZF maps
are fully loaded into RAM (instead of being paged from disk), these maps can be quite
large and there is a chance your computer may run out of resources while loading the
image, in these cases the loading will be aborted.
