What is the .IMI File Extension?

.IMI File Extension Description:

The file extension .imi is an archive file used by Magellan eXplorist GPS (Global Positioning System), a handheld navigational unit that is used for travel and sports. Such activities that require active location maps include hiking, biking, exploration, and so on.

The Magellan GPS unit has a ready GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allows users to have an active map of their current location. Each map shown on the display has an IMI format, with the same data as that of the IMG file extension on latest models.

The concept of a Global Positioning System (GPS) is simply to pinpoint your exact location through the latest satellite technology available. The system will detect your current location and plot it out on the map on the handheld device, using accurate coordinate protocols.

The archive file with the IMI format contains data that is utilized by the system for the overall functionality of the GPS unit, such as:

* Data files to be used by the GPS unit. This includes points, coordinates, and other files for the unit to display all the necessary information.

* Graphical data of the map within a specified location.

* A table of contents (TOC), which contains the allocated bytes to be used for the different features of the Magellan GPS unit.

* Offset values that will determine how the data files are used in the system

The IMI file extension can only be read using a specific application provided by the Magellan Navigations Incorporations bundled with the GPS device. The software is known to work only on Microsoft Windows operating systems, with no current support for either Mac OS or Linux.
