2. Install your purchased map on your device


First of all you have to download the installation package for your purchased map. The installation package will be created on-the-fly for your installation. It is an customized installation package, which will be watermarked with your personal data. Please login into your MYMAPS Account which was send to you after your purchase and go to Download Map.





On the next screen click on Request Customized Installation File. You have to reenter your password again and then the creation process starts automatically. Please do not stop the creation process by clicking somewhere in your browser window or reload the page! The process can take up to 15 minutes and should not be interupted!






After the creation of your installation file has finished, you are able to download it from the Download area of your MYMAPS Account. The downloadfile is available 3 month for download. So please download it and save it carefully to your local harddrive.

The easiest way is to install the map with the Windows installation file. So please download the EXE-file, which run under all modern Windows operating systems. If you use an operating system other than windows (e.g. MacOS or Linux), please download the compressed ZIP-Archive.





Now please connect your Smartphone/PDA as USB-Storage device to your computer or insert the Smartphone’s MemoryCard into your computer’s cardreader. Please now use the Windows Explorer to check very carefully, which drive letter was assigned to your Smartphone’s memorycard. In this tutorial we use driveletter “L:” as an example. Start the downloaded installation file by double clicking it. Select your language and read all hints carefully. On the next screen select the drive letter which was assigned to your Smartphone’s memory card. Your map will be installed on this drive.





Note: if you do not use Windows and have downloaded the ZIP-archive instead of the EXE-file above, please extract the ZIP-file to a folder on your harddrive. Inside, you will find a folder called “Maps” and inside is another folder called “NepalTOPO-NPL-Full” or similar (the name depends on the map you have purchased). Copy this folder to the memory card of your Smartphone manually. Please copy it to the folder \NavitelContent\Maps on the memory card.

Now you should also install our Extension Pack for Navitel. The Extension Pack contains a special NepalGPSMap Skin for Navitel, which will let you see height contour lines as well as special POIs like Stupas, Gompas or Temples. Furthermore, the Extension Pack contains more speech files in different languages for Turn-By-Turn navigation. You can download the Extension Pack also from your MYMAPS Account. Installation follows the same rules like the installation of your map. Note: If you do not use the EXE-File for installation but want to install the Extension Pack from the ZIP archive, please again extract it to your local harddrive and copy the content of each subfolder into the appropriate folder on your smartphone’s memorycard within the NavitelContent folder: All the content from the “Skins” folder go to NavitelContent\Skins folder on the memory card, all the content of the “Voices” folder go to NavitelContent\Voices folder.

After all installations are finished, please start Navitel Navigator and first of all select the NepalGPSMap Skin from Menu -> Settings -> Interface -> Skin. Choose the NepalGPSMap-Skin from the dropdown list. Now you can scroll the map window to Nepal to see your map. A much more easier way is to search for an address (if your map supports address search) – this way the map scrolls to the correct position automatically. Click on Menu -> Find -> By Address and search for an address in Kathmandu or Pokhara.

2. Install your purchased map on your device


First of all you have to download the installation package for your purchased map. The installation package will be created on-the-fly for your installation. It is an customized installation package, which will be watermarked with your personal data. Please login into your MYMAPS Account which was send to you after your purchase and go to Download Map.

After the creation of your installation file has finished, you are able to download it from the Download area of your MYMAPS Account. The downloadfile is available 3 month for download. So please download it and save it carefully to your local harddrive.

Due to Apple’s restrictions you cannot install the map directly onto your iOS device. You need additional software to copy the map files to your device. Furthermore, you have to copy them manually onto your device. So please do NOT download the EXE file, even if you are using Windows as operating system. Please download the compressed ZIP file and exctract it somewhere onto your harddrive. You may need additional software for extracting the file. We recommend using 7-ZIP, which is available free of charge: http://www.7-zip.org/. Within the ZIP-file, there’s a folder called “Maps”. Open it and you will se another folder with a name similar to “NepalTOPO-NPL-Full” (the folder name depends on the map you have bought). This folder must be copied to your iOS device later on.





Next step is to install the Third Party Software “iExplorer”. iExplorer let you copy files (in our case: the map files) onto your iOS device like in Windows Explorer. iExplorer is available free of charge, too. Please download it from http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/. There’s a MAC and a Windows version. After installation connect your iOS device to your computer and start iExplorer. You will see a window which looks like the Windows Explorer: On the left side you see a tree with all installed media and software on your device, on the right you see all installed files in the folder you have clicked in the tree on the left side.





In the tree on the left side of the window, please move to Apps -> su.navitel.bel -> Documents -> NavitelContent -> Maps. Now please drag and drop the folder with the map files from your extracted ZIP archive to the windows an the right side. So for example, open the ZIP-file or the folder you have extracted the content of the ZIP archive, open the included “Maps” folder and drag and drop the folder “NepalTOPO-NPL-Full” from the ZIP-file to the right side of the iExplorer window. This will copy the needed map files onto your iOS device. After copying, the content of the “Documents -> NavitelContent -> Maps” folder on your iOS device should look like this:





Now you should also install our Extension Pack for Navitel. The Extension Pack contains a special NepalGPSMap Skin for Navitel, which will let you see height contour lines as well as special POIs like Stupas, Gompas or Temples. Furthermore, the Extension Pack contains more speech files in different languages for Turn-By-Turn navigation. You can download the Extension Pack also from your MYMAPS Account. Installation follows the same rules like the installation of your map. So please again choose the ZIP archive for downloading and extracting it locally to your harddrive. Now please copy the content of the ZIP archive the very same way like you have copied your map before onto your iOS device. All the content of each subfolder go into the appropriate folder on your iOS device: All the content from the “Skins” folder go to Apps -> su.navitel.bel -> Documents -> NavitelContent -> Skins folder on the iOS deivde, all the content of the “Voices” folder go to Apps -> su.navitel.bel -> Documents -> NavitelContent -> Voices folder.





After all installations are finished, please start Navitel Navigator and first of all select the NepalGPSMap Skin from Menu -> Settings -> Interface -> Skin. Choose the NepalGPSMap-Skin from the dropdown list. Now you can scroll the map window to Nepal to see your map. A much more easier way is to search for an address (if your map supports address search) – this way the map scrolls to the correct position automatically. Click on Menu -> Find -> By Address and search for an address in Kathmandu or Pokhara.
