Using OSM the docs say to read the “OSM Map Import Guide”. It is supposed to tell how to import a file from OSM that contains the Lat and Long coordinates of the map I generate in OSM. So far, I can create a map in either .jpg or .png format but those don’t have Lat and Long references. I can also generate a .osm file but the import feature in Spike doesn’t recognize it as an acceptable file type. I can’t find the “OSM Map Import Guide”. How do I do this?

The import guide is located in the Spike installation directory at C:/Program Files/Signal Hound/Spike/manuals.
Let us know if you still have problems after looking through that.

Thx for that info. I read the reference and it confirmed what I have done so far. I had thought that hand entering the OSM lats and longs from OSM into Spike would be unnecessary, but I see that it is necessary.

Once you enter both the map and the lat/lon coords, you can use the import/export session to load/save both the map and coords simultaneously for future use. For my testing, I exported the session with map and coords before making any measurements, so I could quickly load a clean map on each startup.
In the case of mapping, the preset doesn’t store the map/coords, only the mapping session. So when you want to start up where you left off, load your exported session, and load a preset with the mapping settings you like.
Hope this helps!
