    yes, you view it through Blazer... you'll have to create an index.html file that calls the img (use <img src=subway.gif>) where subway.gif is the name of the image, in the same directory as you'll have the .html file. I personally use a subdirectory to keep it clean and organized...

    So once you have both the subway.gif and index.html on your SD card in (subdir), go into Blazer, you'll create a bookmark that points to: file:///(subdir)/index.html.

    Sorry for the quick and dirty explanation... this may have been discussed earlier in this thread.

    I think it is something related to memory. Please take a look at MTA map ( http://www.lirr.org/nyct/maps/submap.htm ). You can find the whole subway map is composed by two files: sub1a.gif(87k) and sub2a.gif(105k).

    I tried to create a simple html file (by img src=) pointing to the two gifs. I put the html and two gif in the card under HTML subdirectory. However, only upper image (sub1a.gif) showed in Blazer, the lower image (sub2a.gif) was only a red cross. I then deleted sub1a.gif and found the lower image (sub2a.gif) shown correctly. Finally I use photoshop to put two images together to make a 200k gif of whole subway map and wrote a corresponding html. This time Blazer just show red cross.

    I tried to increase the memory limit from 1mb to 8mb for all above testing, however it's not helpful. I think there's something about the image size loading limitation. Any help would be very appreciated.

    just a quick suggestion... try Photoshop's "save for web" on these images or even grayscale them to make them < 100k total and try again. Try and determine if it is indeed the filesize. If so... there are ways to compress the images even further.

    As another test, try loading this through Blazer: http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/7978/subway1qr.gif ... and if that works, create an html page that loads that image... it is 261kb in size. If both methods work, then it is not a filesize limitation...

    is there a reason why you can't download the PDF version and view it with PalmPDF or Docs2go 8? That way you can view it as one file and zoom in if you need to.

    I haven't tried this yet, but wanted to test it out this weekend.

    here's the link for the pdf file

    http://www.mta.nyc.ny.us/nyct/maps/subwaymap.pdf

    It's about 438 KB's. It might be a little slow. which I think is the reason why some of you are trying to view on blazer as gifs.

    I use this program: NYC_Subway_PRC (Jan 2002)
    I run it off the card.
    I've used it since my m505 days - a little finicky on the 650: the only way to exit is to push the home button.
    Nice 'n fast

    Enjoy

    btw - tried the pdf file. Docs to Go PDF took more than 10 minutes to load and like amount to resize

    OK, finally I found an useful, quick and pratical solution--the free image viewer VDI.
    http://www.okob.net/projects/vdi/

    It perfectly shows the NYC subway map from the MTA webpage.

    The files need to be placed in a directory called HTML unless you want to edit the the html files. Once on the card you can call up the file in blazer by typing file:///HTML/MTAMaps.html

    Note: I edited this post to point to the current files
    Is this still available? Page cannot be found. Thanks!

    If anyone is interested I'll post the files

    The first map is the subway map, which pops up in 5 seconds.
    The second is a detailed street / Bus map of downtown manhatten which takes about 15 seconds to load.

    (these estimates are from a SD Ultra II card)
    So how does this work? Do you need to send it to where my Treo is backed up ? If so, that would be a different address. Please advise. Thanks
