    You can't have overlapping mapping for areas, which you seem to know.

    So the answer is you need to do a computer map recce of whatever route you plan on taking and see which mapping is superior for your needs. If the Topo USA has enough street detail in it for you, then it will probably be the better choice. Topo USA has a fair amount of tar mapping in towns as well, but City Navigator can't say the same about the mapping it provides for back country roads. Shouldn't take you long comparing them on your computer to decide which set of maps will be best for your intended ride.

    Actually I can. I use a NEAMA GPS device doing USB to my lappy and as I only use Google Earth, there are no maps where I go, I could, with the latest version, do a route survey on Mars.

    I can't seem to load waypoints and tracks that I built in mapsource to my 276c? It will load maps just fine. The transfer window says "waypoint transfer succesfull" but they do not show up on the unit. I am using US topo 2008, is that the problem?
