Delorme Street Atlas USA

Anyone using this for their mapping software?

I emailed them and they said you can export GPX files and routes to your GPS. I used Street Atlas a LONG time ago and when M$ came out with Streets and trips I bailed. Now that S&T is being discontinued (and exported GPX files are crap) I'm shopping for an alternate.

Basecamp isn't an option. It too is crap as far as I'm concerned.

I use Delorme's other product, Topo USA (now Topo North America). I find the contour lines pretty helpful for picking fun roads.

Are you looking for on-road or off?

If on-road, I've been using mapquest.com lately. You can download routes/waypoints from them to a Garmin GPS very easily.

FWIW,

I love delorme products, but they refuse to produce a GPS I can use (one I can see, and pump sound into my helmet).
So I use Garmin. And after using all of Delorme products (and I know how) and now using basecamp, I really don't have a problem with basecamp. the thing is its different, but does the job.
I feel your loosing too much trying to use different software with your Garman, so I just learned Basecamp

I use to think the same and have been a strong proponent of using BaseCamp - until recently. A week ago I was pointed to an online Trip Planner named Furkot.com. This tool can do it all short of drawing a track on the map where there are no roads. You can import GPX (Tracks/Routes/Waypoints) files and download your GPX files (and others). You can edit your Tracks or Mixed-Travel segments and the most powerful feature is the backend connection to other internet databases for POIs of all kinds including NFS Campgrounds.

I have no more need to BaseCamp except, I will continue to use it as my database repository. But, all of my planning will take place in Furkot.
