They aren't available now, but....
Many, many years ago there was a thing called a 'map'.
I think that's correct spelling.

Never used them, but they look interesting. I think you can actually view the routes on a map at http://www.treknow.com/

I recently ordered the TrekNow CD for the Oregon Back Country Discover Route and it seems like a great product so far. Havn't road tested it yet but it comes with both Routes and Track logs as well as map images and roll charts. Had a question on a feature and I sent them an email and got an answer back the next day. Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

I print what I want, scale I want, toss 'em if I need to




(but I do use a Garmin GPS12 to check the speedo, avg speed, mileage, max speed [got outta ticket once with it ] and even though it doesn't have a compass built in ... put in coordinates for the north pole as a GOTO ... works jus fine)

This summer sometime if the stars and planets align correctly. Then it should be something very nice for the end of the year....long and deep.... somewhere.

The beauty of these CDs is that they have 4x4 routes already programmed in...its like a virtual tour guide....

And with old school maps, you really have to stop and figure out where the hell you are....whereas with the fancy GPS, you can keep riding and really improvise as you go along...I find that incredibly hard to do with a printed map.

similar but Free

Free download of GPS track at
gpsXChange.com the only catch is that you need to upload at least 1 route before being able to download.
