The newest version of the map - the LC
(Land Cover) edition - is now ready for download. This map is a much larger download - about 100MB zipped and the map itself is about 185MB when you uncompress it.
The older versions will remain online as each one has its own purpose. This version has a more photographic look which reveals more about the landscape. It has been tested on the GPSMap 60csx, Nuvi 205, Nuvi 5000 and Oregon and works fine on all of them. I suspect it will work on any Garmin unit which has a USB disk mode where you can access the GPS like a disk drive. This is the only installation method recommended for the LC map, and you will need to have at least 200MB of free space on either internal GPS memory or a data card.
The download includes a ReadMe file with more information. Testing today I did discover one glitch where a section of the map near Weymouth was missing detail until you actually entered that area or moved the arrow pointer into it. Will have to investigate that further. Let me know if you find other problems.... this should still be considered beta software.
This version is also the first to include a "night mode" for those GPS'es which support that feature. It isn't as pretty as I would like, but it's a start
