    that wasn't my garmin, that was my Delorme Earthmate (I haven't been too impressed with it lately)

    I see . . . it did seem pretty handy though in mapping out routes with possible caches along the way.

    It's really handy when it comes to that, and finding out which caches you're closest too, but when it comes down to the accuracy of the roads (not the GPSr) on the map, you pretty much have to learn to not trust it and start to keep an eye out when you're coming up to your turns and destinations. (the roads aren't always where the map says they are... which is kinda depressing for the Maine maps considering their world headquarters are only 60mi south of here!)

    Rather surprising . . . especially considering how the DeLorme can be found in just about every serious Mainer's truck, camp, etc.

    I think it's just their software (i've never had issues with the atlas) but the new Rt 3 in Augusta doesn't even show up!

    Thats because it is so new I would think.

    but its in the delorme atlas, and my software is a 2006 edition, and the new rt 3 is in last years atlas too... (maybe they should just stick to paper maps)
