Useful product plagued by horrible data transfers

 

Views are nice, simple interface. I like the ability to both display a 2D and 3D "birds-eye view

Where to start ; The user interface is atrocious, yeah it's simple, but laggy (on a QX6800 quad core) ; The main selling point of this software is it's ability to d/l additional maps from Delorme's Map Library. Their servers are so limited on bandwidth...

Product Specifications

Topo USA 4.0 is the most versatile and detailed mapping software available, ideal for hiking, biking, camping, highway and off-road navigation, and armchair exploring. Go anywhere in the U.S. from the convenience of your home or office using Topo USA 4.0. Explore over six million roads and 300, 000 miles of trails in 2-D and 3-D views, side-by-side with new split-screen viewing. Preview land cover including wetlands, forests, glaciers, rock cover, and urban areas. Click on any road, trail, or your own draw objects and see instant elevation profiles showing cutaway views of the terrain, linked to the map. Topo USA 4.0 lets you be the mapmaker. Create automatic routes along streets or trails from metro areas to mountaintops. Add your own routable roads, trails, searchable lines, shapes, annotations, symbols, and more. Quickly see measurements in acres, miles, and feet. Print maps in 2-D and 3-D including titles, legends, elevation profiles, and travel directions. Make poster-size 2-D and 3-D mural maps using an everyday printer by joining together nine tiled map pages, automatically generated by the software. Connect the DeLorme Earthmate GPS receiver (available separately) to a laptop PC and track your position in real-time on 2-D and 3-D maps - it's amazing! Use the new GPS waypoint wizard to upload routes to popular handheld GPS receivers. You can even route on trails and roads you've drawn or collected with GPS - it's the ultimate in modern mapping! It works with Garmin, Brunton, Magellan, and other leading brands. With one click, switch to split-screen mode for viewing side-by-side 2-D and 3-D maps. Hover your cursor over the 2-D map and see the cursor echo the position automatically on the 3-D map. Trace a line on the 2-D map and it automatically appears on the 3-D map. New XMap Handheld software lets you bring GPS-compatible topo maps on most Palm OS and Pocket PC devices. (To use XMap Handheld with Topo USA 4.0, a download from within Topo USA is necessary. Topo USA 4.0 can provide maps for use with XMap Handheld Street Atlas USA edition software, but not for any version of previously released Solus software). Use Topo USA's versatile split-screen design to access additional DeLorme datasets, including recent color satellite imagery (extra charge applies, available for selected states via the software's Netlink Tab). Compare Topo USA 4.0 maps on one side with satellite imagery on the other. Update your topo maps using the linked draw tools - it's the latest in mapping technology and accuracy.
