BaseCamp is really useful only if you have the TOPO map DVD.

I have no experience with MapManager and MapInstall but I'm pretty sure these are subsets of Road Trip.

The better question might me, what do you want to be able to do?
Thanks for the quick response. Now to your question:
1. if someone offers a GPS file (gpx) of a route, how do I then apply it to my Zumo ,ie turn on Zumo, select route, and go?
2. make a route... eg, look at all the "unpaved roads" in the Catskills on a map, chart it out in my Mac, then transfer it to my Zumo?
3. if I want a TOPO map of, say the Catskills, do I buy it from Garmin and download it to my Mac. Are TOPO maps really for MX/off road riding?

I guess that's it for now.
