I am running the Mazda SDAL in my Saab, but its getting very old now. My question is simple, is the format officially dead and if so, can other formats be converted to this, or is all hopes out to ever get an updated map again?
SDAL is a sort of free format (you have to pay to get the documentation) and it should be possible to convert to SDAL from another format, for example the Open Street Map, which has wonderful maps!
The trouble, I guess, is that there are too few interested in paying which means there's no economic reason for anyone to do it. Perhaps one should try these crowdfunding-thingies, but one still need a programmer interested in doing stuff
