Gathering up resources and will be glad to share what we find with you. General consensus on here seems to be that Bicimapas is better than Garmin but for dirt roads the Cartographia E32 downloads might be the best. I bought the latest Guia Rojii atlas (2013) but as far as state maps go, they don't seem to have updated them in a while. My plan now is to use the Guia Rojii city to city and the INEGI topo maps and the E32 gps maps for the dirt roads.

We wanted to do CC but the road condition down to Batopilas and the unpredictable weather in Creel made us think further south.

Thanks for the feedback and have a good trip! Let me know if you change your mind about CC.
Mike
