Wanted: Nexian's HandyGPS Ubigo maps of the USA
« on: November 29, 2008, 01:23:33 PM »
A friend of mine contacted me today and asked if I knew where to download the Ubigo maps of the USA (he wants the complete set) for Nexian's HandyGPS (used for the Handspring Visor and other similar PDA's).

They used to be a free download on the Nexian site, but the company went out of business almost 2-3 years ago.

He has been going nuts looking for these maps and can't find them anywhere. I tried looking for them myself, and I couldn't find them either.

Does anyone have any idea where/how to get them?

The problem with what archive.org has there is that it includes the pages from the site (only the public ones) but the login doesn't work and the maps are unavailable (if they even have them).

Does it have to be the UbiGo maps?

According to MobileTechReview you can use any mapping program:

The installation of the GPS was easy. The HandyGPS app is built into the Springboard module, so no need to install it. To install StreetFinder for Palm OS, Pop the CD in; install the software, sync your Visor, and you are done. Note: * Versions other than the Deluxe version come with GPS and navigation software, but do not include a mapping application or any map data. You can download either UbiGo 1.5c, which has US Street and highway maps, from Nexian's web site; or use any NMEA-0183 compatible mapping application. Whichever you choose, you must install one of the above to get street maps. We installed Rand McNally because it's included in the Deluxe version we received.

Thanks for that info. I'll let him know and see what he says.
