Thanks for your answer, I had assumed that that's the state :-(

For a real man, there's no such thing as an unexplorable file format ;-)))

However, agreed that it will be pretty difficult to hack, and I'm not very experienced in doing so :-(

Yes, I've added the hints about mapping with tripmaster on it recently ;-)

I've noticed their project, but first wanted to ask here.

Maybe they know a bit more about the map format, however, there's nothing about it on their wiki.

P.S: I don't think they'll have the opentom system ready - with a running navigation incl. routing - until may ;-)
