Here are the APRS maps you should have. Download and place the .ZIP file in your C:\aprs directory. Then do: PKUNZIP -dn xxxxxxx.zip and the maps will be installed on your system. You will need to change the maplist in APRS to make these maps show up. For APRSdos, do M C C to change map lists. For answering the maplist extension question, use:

CAN for Northern California,
CCA for Central California,
CA for old entire state of California.

Remember to use Alt S S to save this new maplist extension to your configure file. Otherwise, this maplist won't be automatically selected when you restart APRSdos
