Radio Mobile is capable of using several sources of cartographic maps and aeral photo's.
See 'Edit > Merge picures'.
Some of these sources have to be enabled manually before you can use them.

By reading and editing the file Map_Link.txt (with for exampleNotepad), the program can access various map layers for personal use only. This can be configured in the file 'Map-Link.txt' To enable access to a map source you have to remove the apostrophe before the name.
Radio Mobile can be handle data retrived from in 3 modes:
