    Yep, 2.0 was crap, in fact I seem to recall starting a thread with thOse words in the title. 2.1 was better but still lacking IMHO.

    I'm willing to give 3.0 a go though because they appear to have listened and have made the upgrades we requested in the main and it does have more smaller tracks.

    However, if this version doesn't do everything it's supposed to do I'll give up and use Garmin, as I have been tempted to do in the long months (years) since it was first mooted to be released.

    Given your ability to radiate chaos, it could be that version 2.x was just fine until you used it Rossco.:hide

    Have you tried the Garmin topo product yet? Just wonderin'.

    Tom, you speak the truths. I'm sitting in a Spa in Napier, drunk as a monkey after an afternoon of wine tasting so pay no attention to what I say and I may drop the iPad in the bath before the evenings out.

    I haven't tried it, what's your thoughts?

    yeah sorry we had version 2.1 and it still sucked. After using the garmin software I actually use it to look things up on the pc instead of maps.
    I dont think any company that can be a year overdue with their next big product is ever going to produce any thing worth while.

    You have made me envious with your talk of spa's in Napier. It sounds like a good place to be.

    I'm just about to load the Garmin topo to my gps, so I'm going to be looking at it with a fresh eye for a while. If it's like oztopo but with routing I'll be pretty happy with it I suspect.

    Has Garmin topo been updated?

    I seem to remember a lot of people being less than pleased with it when it came out
