I use the Arizona Topo mapping program by National Geographic. It works great and will show my routes and tracks in 7.5 min scale. All i do is plug my GPS (Garmin e-map) to the comp and turn it on. The mapping program is set up to download off of gps's

I have that same national geographic program, its the best I have everseen, Ive used lots of map programs. Ive had mine since the first version.
I have never used a gps on one yet.

Oh yeah I will probally see my buddy with the plane today, and I will ask him. Seems He set me up for a install in mexico Which I refused to goto. well he talked me into it and now he wants me to FLY to nogalos. I hate to fly. then the kicker was he is flying me in a little tin can with 2 engines. what the hell is wrong with driving anymore :roll:

2 things I always refused to do..


Flying and going across the boarder , and now it seems I am going to do both in one day :shock:
better make out my will,
