3rd Party Utilities
Dave Patton for many years maintained a website
of 3rd party
utilities to either work directly with OziExplorer via the API, or to work
with OziExplorer data files (map, waypoint or track files). Dave passed
away in 2016. Some of the links to utilities from Dave's website are

Do you have more maps than will fit on a single CD or into your handheld? Map
Selector is a program to select maps and their associated images and copy them
to a directory of your choice. It will select all maps that include one or
more waypoints which are in waypoint or route files. Free for all to use. The
