      I'm having trouble displaying waypoints.  The doc says:

           'Qpegps can draw the saved places (waypoints) on the moving map. For switching on this mode you can press "OK" button and chose "Draw places" menu item. You can switching off this mode by pressing "OK" button and chose "Don't draw places" menu item.'

      I have a SL-5500.   Pressing OK only gets me full-screen mode.  Tapping the screen only gets me the Coordinate dialog to save or measure position.  Where is this menu item, or how else can I enable "Draw places"?

      Also, I'm not finding help for downmap_g.  -h gives me help for multimap.  I'm guessing the "Link to this page" on Google Maps has the parameters I need but how does this translate to downmap_g parameters?

      Thanks,
      Kyle

      silly me - you meant the Enter key on the keyboard.  I'd never seen that menu before - working fine now.

      would still like an example for usign downmap_g

      thanks,

        downmap [-la <latitude DD>] [-lo <longitude DD>]  [-slat, --start-lat <start latitude DD>] [-elat, --end-lat <end latitude D>] [-slon, --start-lon <start longitude D>] [-elon, --end-lon <end longitude D>]  [-sc <SCALE>] [-a <#>] [-p] [-md <DIR>] [-P <PREFIX>] [-h]

          <-la <latitude D>> - Takes a latitude in format specified by -f switch and uses that as the latitude for the centerpoint of the area to be covered. This and '-lo', or '-sla', '-ela', '-slo', '-elo' is required.
           <-lo <longitude D>> - Takes a longitude in format specified by -f switch and uses that as the longitude for the centerpoint of the area to be covered. This and '-la', or '-sla', '-ela', '-slo', '-elo' is required.
          <-sla, --start-lat <start latitude D>> - Takes a latitude in format specified by -f switch and uses that as the start latitude for the area to be covered. This, '-ela', '-slo' and '-elo' or '-la' and '-lo' is required.
          <-ela --end-lat <end latitude D>> - Takes a latitude in format specified by -f switch and uses that as the end latitude for the area to be covered. This, '-sla', '-slo' and '-elo' or '-la' and '-lo' is required.
          <-slo --start-lon <start longitude D>> - Takes a longitude in format  specified by -f switch and uses that as the start longitude for the area to be covered. This, '-sla', '-ela' and '-elo' or '-la' and '-lo' is required.
          <-elo, --end-lon <end longitude D>> - Takes a longitude in format  specified by -f switch and uses that as the end longitude for the area to be covered. This, '-sla', '-ela' and '-slo' or '-la' and '-lo' is required.
          <-sc <SCALE>> - Scales of map(s) to download. Default: 300000.
          <-a <#>> - Area to cover. number of kilometers square around the centerpoint. You can use a single number for square area. Or you can use '#x#' to do a rectangle, where the first number is distance in km (East-West direction) and the second number is distance km (Nodr-South).
          <-md <DIR>> - Override the default mapdir (maps/) with this value.
          <-P <PREFIX>> - Takes a prefix string to be used as the start of all saved map files. Default: "m_".
          <-wld, --wld> - Do not use roadmap. Use relief map everywere.
          <-nowld, --nowld> - Do not use relief map everywere.
          <-h> Prints the usage page and exits.
          <-v> - shows wget output (for debug)
          <-f DM, -f Dd> - Specify Coordinates format. Where: -f DM (default) - means format DD.MMmm (degrese and aafter point minutes). -f Dd means format DD.dddd degrease in fixed decimal format;
          <-d #> - specify map file resolution. Use -d 0 for low resolution (1332x1332 pixel). or -d 1 for high resolution (1998x1998 pixel). Default resolution 1332x1332.

        Examples:
          downmap -sla 36.5 -ela 59.0 -slo -9.5 -elo 19.0 -sc 300000 -md /home/QtPalmtop/qpegps/maps/ -P m
          downmap -la 47 -slo 1 -sc 300000 -md /home/QtPalmtop/qpegps/maps/ -P m

        If you need use proxy run Console (terminal) and enter:
          export http_proxy=http://yourpoxy:<port number>
        then run downmap
        Example:
        # export http_proxy=http://mypoxy:8080
        # downmap
