btw, is the only option with Baja to use gpx (tracks) of routes?

or is there map software available for Baja?

i'm running a zumo 550 and it looks like NA v.8 only has the main roads of baja in it.

i got mapsource's US topo last week and really like it for the trails and dirt roads.

i wish there was a topo for baja.

MG,

Topo software is available for Baja. It now claims to autoroute.

When you pick a waypoint the GPS automatically figures out and displays the route, either shortest of fastest.

looks like the Navigator is almost half the price of the Expeditioner. if i'm not misunderstanding the description Navigator has the same level of road detail as the topo (Expeditioner).

so it boils down to an extra $50 for autorouting.

MG,

It's worth the $50 [to me] for the topo stuff. It's let me make my own way across the desert a few times while down there. I never use autorouting in Mexico as the map data is still a tad 'unreliable' - particularly when you're out in the sticks.

I have both of them, and the map sets appear to be identical, FWIW. In fact, I think I got Expeditioner by paying the difference between the two as an 'upgrade'.

thanks for your insight.

so by topo lines do you mean the contour lines? just trying to understand the advantage of having Exp over Nav. it sounds like autorouting is not as important as i thought.

if the road detail is the same perhaps i'll start out with Navigator and move up to Expeditioner at a later date. I hope to try it out in a couple weeks when i go down.

Best in Baja

I have to agree, I've got vol. 1 and used it with confidence and no disappointments.

I downloaded the GPX file and I can't get Google Earth or Garmin Mapsource to display it.

Tell an idiot what he is doing wrong.

Down load the KML file to use on Google Earth. I haven't check the gpx file.
