[GeoStL] Re: Awesome GPS product

-
That is not what I was referring to, but I have a fix for that.

I asked about it on the ExpertGPS forum and someone figured out how to fix
it.  

http://forums.topografix.com/index.php?showtopic=910

I do not understand what they did or what was wrong, but I downloaded the
zip file and placed them where he said to and it works right now.  The only
problem is the link for the corrected files expired.  It is a 10 meg file
which is more than I can email.  But I can upload it somewhere if you know a
place, or break it down into smaller files that I can email.  Let me know
and I will give you the fix.  

What I was referring to is the maps I make.  I can put the various maps
together into a single map.  If you install my topo maps (takes 10 minutes)
and go to Marquette Park and select the Other Maps mapset, you will see an
example of how I can make a map.  It is much better than the USGS maps in
Expert GPS.  Much better resolution, vector (so you can zoom way in), you
can add trails, etc.  It is in MapSource so you can add waypoints on the
map, etc.
