MapSend Topo software

3 posts in this topic

If anyone has the Magellan MapSend topo CD for Magellan GPS's, I understand through reading descriptions of the product that it has topo of all land features, but does it also have topo for lakes?(ie. humps on the lake floor, or sudden drop offs) I want to buy the product but only if it shows features under the surface of the water.
Thanks

I just purchased the 32MB chip yesterday to down load some of the Topo info. I will probably play around with it tomorrow and see how it works.

Well I messed with this thing for several hours over the past two days.
I have a Magellan Meridian Platinum. I tried the "Mapsend Topo Program" $99.00, The "32MB SD Memory Ship" $84.00 and hours of time.
I am no better off today then I was befoer I installed it. I was told it had all the info that a Gazetteer Atlas in and much more. I could careless about any city maps and major highways. I have regular maps for that. It does not show boat landings,(gazetteer does)
It does not show any Topo info for any lakes at all. In Southwest Minnesota there is not enough elevation change that makes any difference. Maybe I am just an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly when it comes to running this program, but I am disappointed so far. $180 down the drain!!!!!
If anyone has any advice I'd be happy to listen.

S.D.

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
