More Tracks Required

Guys,

Am currently running Shonkey Maps on my 550 Zumo and am wondering if there's another program I could be using so as to provide better track info.

Found the Shonkey stuff a little lacking up near Finke last weekend.

cheers

Thanks DD,

I must be doing something wrong! People tell me that Shonkey is better than T4A but your picture is better than the one I was getting. I might see if I can't improve the Shonkey stuff.

Cheers

PS. That was us with the Beemers at William Creek last week.

T4A and Shonky both use the Geoscience Australia roads and tracks database so I would expect them to have the same coverage
