Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $30
This is the way to get electronic USGS quad topo's for Delorme PN series GPS units for one flat rate for a year. Only useful if you have a Delorme GPS.
- Reasonable price
- Unlimited downloads
- Only useful if you have a Delorme GPS
It is easy to use and activate the subscription by buying the card online or at a store like REI or Amazon, but even better is to subscribe directly using the Delorme Topo NA software. The price is the same no matter where you get it. But if you do find it discounted somewhere please let me know!
The maps do tend to be large and as I stated in my reviews of the Delorme PN series GPS's large files can make the sync program bog down and even timeout. The work around is to only load maps for immediate use or transfer them manually directly to the SD card.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The MapPack subscription provides unlimited downloads for display on Earthmate PN-Series GPS receivers.
The DeLorme Map Library subscription card offers a comprehensive selection of supplemental imagery downloads at an amazingly affordable price. Why spend hundreds on a GPS unit only to be stuck with 1 source for maps? Supplement your DeLorme GPS with detailed, colorful imagery and bring the terrain around you to life. Supplement the topographic and/or detailed street coverage that comes with your DeLorme software with raster maps, and imagery that deepen your understanding of the terrain. Supplemental imagery available in the DeLorme Map Library can be layered with the street and topographic maps that your DeLorme GPS and software programs already contain. Imagery types available with a Map Library subscription include: high-resolution color DOQQ aerial imagery, USGS 7.5-minute quads and NOAA nautical charts. Also available are: USGS high-resolution cities, Sat-10 colorized satellite imagery, black-and-white DOQQ aerial imagery and 1:50K Canada topographic map sheets. Easily access the DeLorme Map Library online from the NetLink tab on your Delorme software (sold separately). Once downloaded, maps, imagery and charts will be automatically available for viewing and use on your computer; they can also be loaded via USB onto a PN-series GPS or SD card. USGS 7.5-minute quad maps are authentic scans of the originals and show roads, trails, buildings, natural landmarks and other unique features. NOAA nautical charts include all U.S. waterways including the Great Lakes, Alaska and Hawaii; they show navigation aids, water depths, water body names and hazards. High-resolution color aerial imagery covers many U.S. states and select U.S. cities, providing a unique aerial perspective of roads, trails, buildings and landmarks. Sat-10 colorized satellite imagery provides high-level views of vegetation, topography and major geologic formations in large geographic areas.
