    Lightbulb How to extract map files?

    A common problem with maps is the way it extracts the files...
    It sometimes creates the map folder INSIDE another folder named after the Rar File.
    This is commonly known as NESTING.

    In this example, the RAR file Australia_815.rar contains an Australia map.
    See how it extracts to a folder named Australia_815 (after the RAR file)
    Inside is the real map folder, named Australia.



    Copying across like this, it will still be possible to crack the map (create DCT file)
    However, the device will not be able to see it & you will get No Maps error message.

    Map folders should always be placed on root (in the example here - this is drive F: )

    How many files should be in a map folder? and what files should they be?
