OZtopo v 3.0. When?

Has anyone any inside info on the release date?

It seems to have been "V3 is coming, but buy now and get a free upgrade to V3 " for a loooong time.

Nicked this from another thread in here :

The current release date for OZtopo V3 is Sept 1. Yes also most a year late but we have been ambushed by Garmin's changes to their PC software and firmware in their GPS units. So that has taken a lot of time and resources away from getting V3 out. But its back on track (pun intended) and looking great.

New features will include

Updated maps from MDS as of Q2 2010
Addition of CAMPS5 locations
Mountain peaks with heights
Outback features, homestead names, windmills, bores etc
Better zoom/detail levels for GPS and PC use
Mac and windows distribution
New pre loaded SD and micro SD card product
DVD product will still be available but no downloading from PC to GPS units.
SD/mSD card price will be $229 including 2GB card, DVD (for PC use) + postage
Upgrades from any previous version $99 for same GPS unit (new unlock code needed) + Reloading of (m)SD card if requested $30
Future upgrades will also be available for SD/mSD product

So basically it will be a card based product only for easy installation (which will be copy protected). No unlock codes or registration etc will be necessary. DVD will provide the ability to plan trips and view previous track logs on the PC (via mapsource or basecamp). There will be a number of existing V1 & V2 customers that may wish to upgrade to V3 that don't have card based units, eg 60C. We handle these on a case by case scenario.

I don't frequent this forum often so if you have any questions put them here or email sales@gpsoz.com.au

cheers
brian

So on that basis it should be available now, but I'll bet the date has slipped.

I am looking at getting a gpsmap62, internal memory only. So you saying oztopo3 cant be loaded? Seems like a really backward step

I loaded it into map source. Has a lot of detail compared to other topo maps. Looks like it will be a good product when released.

Yes, i have been somewhat acerbic about their tardiness and lack of communication with their faithfull but I reckon I'll be backing up for this version I think.

I particularly like that the paper map feel has been transferred so that dirt roads and tracks have been given a grading and they are in red. V frikken G

V3 dissappeared?

Has V3 disappeared? Rossco's link (post #8) got me nowhere.

Maybe we're onto the Gamma version?

I'm not committing to a date, I can't remember

Not broken yet, it's a great unit though, better than the 60. I've never broken one, lost two though, broke a Quest, they're not chaos field proof

Question

Hey Rossco, wot's better about the 62? I know it's newer, and has more internal memory, but wot's the big differences from your view? I'm curious for an unbiased review.
