    does not replace maps. you have to print to many sections if you are going on a long trek. Great for day hikes and such.
    Very good for tracking distance and scrolling on a computer instead of having your maps on the dinning table.
    Bought it on sale, would not pay full price though

    These maps only give you an overall view of the terrain (like a 15 minute topo quadrangle).
    They do not show the detail like a 7.5 minute quadrangle.
    An earlier version of Topo has 7.5 minute quads that are joined together, and I love it.
    I can print out a detailed map for any trip.
    I will be using these maps less because they do not show the detail that I want when I go hiking.

    The software is not very user friendly and doesn't zoom in far enough to be able to read the location of trails and intersections. The Topo is accurate as you would guess since it is an electronic version of the USGS maps.
