.saf File Extension

Developer: DeLorme
File type: Street Atlas USA Map File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .saf. Files with the file extension .saf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .saf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .saf file?

Files with the SAF extension are map files that can be created, viewed and modified using the DeLorme Street Atlas USA application, a GPS and custom mapping program. This is a digital map with details about specific areas in a region of a particular American state. Users can modify and add certain details to a particular SAF map file using the DeLorme Street Atlas USA program. Some of these details include coordinates, magnification values or zoom options, customized map routes and particular user settings or preferences. Usually, these SAF files are stored in the map directory created in the folder where the program files associated to the DeLorme Street Atlas USA program are found, and this folder was created upon program installation.

how to open a .saf file?

Launch a .saf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .saf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .saf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .saf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .saf file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .saf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .saf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
