How to open Open Flighmap files


I tried to export Google Map Tiles basing on *.tiff format from Open Flightmaps website.
I can open .tiff file, but it seems to have wrong coordinates. On the right bottom corner of GM display scale, "MERCAT(Google)" with proper coordinates value, and on right site wrong coordinates. After export tiles I have wrong scale map near 0,0 point.
I'm not sure, what is the issue. Should I georeference map by myself, or try other file format?

*.tiff files are available with *.xml
Is there any specific way to open it?

    Hello Miroslawa:

    Based on you geo location, if you have already setup a projection in GM, you can save it to a file on desktop/documents. Open GM and load the projection you saved and open the tiff file. Try that and let see if that will start reading the correct coordinates.

    Thank you

    It could help, if I only could find right projection.

    Do you have idea how to move data ProjectionX and ProjectionY to Longitude, Latitude? I'm not sure, which projection/setting could help. Now I found, that I can correctly rectify image again using old data and Update Selected Point. Then popup window:

    The projected coordinate values that you entered appear to be lat/long coordinates. Are the coordinates lat/long coordinates or are they in the selected projection system?

    When I click yes, old projection values will jump to Lat/Long data.

    How to do it automatically for all loaded images?
