i believe that contributions from a free community will also be distributed freely. this is the way malfreemaps has worked and will work. i've been assured of this many times.
our hard work whether for garmin or papago, is totally irrelavant. as long as there are end-users that require our help, we should always try to provide with the extensive knowledge that malfreemappers have got.

Enough with thousands of things we pay everyday. Why not give some free. If community can work within each other, then we can reduce some burdon we community being carrying everyday. Paying for maps will only benefit a few people, enriching only few few persons.
I still believe not every good deeds will be paid with money..

So sifu, go ahead. We tail u! :thumbsup:

MFM had been invited to compile Papago X2 maps. We will be given Papago's official compiler and full range of tools. We will have the freedom and control as to when and how to release our Papago maps. Our mapping team is excited with this proposal because of several benefit.

Major Benefits
  • Sharing our hard work with non-Garmin users
  • Create more competition for Garmin which will hopefully result in better price and features from Garmin
  • Allows us to start accumulating data for the newest navigation features such as lane assist, junction view and 3d buildings. When our Garmin compiler supports these new features in the future, we already have the data

However, due to the different business philosophy between Papago and Garmin, I need to clarify several matters to avoid any misunderstanding later.
  • While Garmin offers the combination of hardware, software and maps to buyers. Papago is purely the navigation software which is available for licensing.
  • To protect their on map data, Papago licensee usually requests for special versions where their devices can only read their own map. In this case, I am not sure whether our maps will be able to be used by buyers of devices sold by these companies
  • Our philosophy is making free maps available for any major navigation platform and we do not side any particular party. We will compile Papago maps for any party that approaches us
  • I had been assure that the Papago maps that we compile will be able to run on most legal Papago devices and softwares. However, at the current moment, I have no way to verify this assurance. So if we go ahead, we go ahead in good faith.

Your comments are much appreciated.

Bumping this poll asking our members' opinion on starting MFM-Papago map to remind ourselves why we started supporting Papago in the first place 8-)
