Why spend hundreds of dollars on a GPS, and then be limited to just one source for maps?
The DeLorme MapLibrary card provides users of both Topo USA® software and Earthmate® PN-Series GPS receivers with easy downloads of the following supplemental options:
- Color Aerial Imagery
- USGS 7.5-min. topographic quads
- NOAA nautical charts.
On the PC, all can be viewed within Topo USA, either in full-screen mode, or in a split-screen side by side with a Topo USA map. The software’s draw tools enable users to mark or trace supplemental data features directly onto Topo USA maps with precise positional accuracy.
For PN-Series GPS users, the imagery, USGS quads, and NOAA charts can easily be uploaded to the receiver along with Topo USA maps. The device automatically “layers” the different options for optimal viewing; users can also turn any or all of them off as situations dictate. The different types of detail inherent in each of the MapLibrary options provides subscribers with a unique ability to prepare for any kind of outdoor activity on the PC, and navigate worry-free with their PN-Series GPS.
In the Package
Any customers who purchases at retail or from online resellers will receive an actual card with a unique serial number on it. That serial number will unlock the MapLibrary for the user.
The subscription card requires no in-store activation. Users will access the MapLibrary via the Topo USA NetLink tab, found in the software’s screen interface. NetLink requires an Internet connection. However, serial number activation and MapLibrary downloads are handled via the software interface.
Terms: A Map Library subscription entitles the user to unlimited online downloads during the one-year subscription period. Downloaded maps, charts, and imagery are the user’s to keep.
