Apr 16, 2012 at 2:36 PM

Hi, my name is Diego, i'm from Argentina.

I try to use mapwingis ocx to show a map and then position ship's in your correct lat\lon position. 

The maps files are ozi explorer maps (.map, .kap and .bsb files).

I achieve show a map but i can't georeference with the .map file.

This is the content of one of my .map files:
