The big feature of this GPS is the ability to "overlay" aerial images and topo maps over the base map. Well it sort of does that... When you finally get one of these images loaded into the unit the resolution is not very good. The base maps are very old, in my city the maps were missing roads that have been around for at least 20 years. The topo images are scans of old USGS topo maps which are usually over 30 years old. But the worst part is the surprise when you find out that you have to pay for the images and maps. The level one images are about 1500 feet square and sell for 1 "credit" each. One "credit" is $1.00, 25 for $20, or 140 for $79. No where in the information did I see that coming. The PC Companion software that comes with the unit is very poor compared to the others, it appears to have been written by someone who has no idea what it should do. The website where you download the maps and images is run as Popup and it won't work unless you turn off you Popup blocker. They give you instructions on how to get aroung this but they do not work. The Website is bad...slow and confusing.

I am extremely disappointed. Bushnell needs to drop this line and go back to what that know.
