    Is this software that goes with a GPS unit or??? Forgive the 'tech challenged' Q's, but my idea of high tech is an aluminum extension ladder.../forums/images/icons/blush.gif Hell, I can barely use this BB.

    The sat pic's look awesome!!

    The software is stand alone but has capabilities to interface with your GPS as well for uploading maps and waypoints or downloading stored waypoints from the field and placing them on the maps. My GPS isn't here yet so I'm doing things the hard way with the printer! My last trip to the desert proved difficult because the topo map wasn't showing trails as they were (some now private property) but after coming home and hitting the sattelite photos, I can see ways we could have gone around.

    This area is a run I'm hoping to do here in August with the San Diego folks.

    Oh, sent you mail with some 57" info!

    That's cool...and could be very handy up here. The myriad of side trails and spur roads makes exploring them all impossible, it would be nice to have a good sat image to work with.

    Got a link for the software portion?

    I just bought a Garmin eMap, though I'm not sure if I like it or not. Thinking I may return it. Anyway, I know nothing about GPS as of yet. Any pointers on sites with good info? I've done some searching but most I have found I was not impressed with... Maybe this site you posted would be worth wile...

    Give the trial version a try, there are also some manuals that help explain the concepts behind all the features and how they pertain to GPS.
