That does make sense, but I do see the same issues with county maintained roads.

Does the 100k have similar zoom properties as city navigator? Meaning you can see smaller roads at certain zoom levels so is it the same between the two? I could care less about using this software for voice directions or city driving, other than just passing through. This tool will be used looking for roads outside of these areas so I am curious which is better for that, having the most accurate/complete roads.

I'm basically looking to get lost while knowing exactly where I am so I can wander and end up exactly where I want.

In an effort to stay out of the overwhelming 600 page Montana thread, I'll continue to post my questions here regarding my Montana 600 and map install/use...

I purchased, recieved, and successfully installed the CNNA both on my machine and on my blank 8gb SD card! I'm terrible with technology so this was a big success and I'm proud. Problem is I've been unsuccuessful in bringing CNNA up on my device. I have it uploaded to the card, and the card loaded in the device (physicallly) but I can't seem to see it. I also have the SW 24k maps but it is loaded directly on my device as opposed to the SD card, but I can't find it on the list of map options either. What perplexes me is the SW 24k map shows up on the map even though I don't have it "turned on". How do I turn on the CNNA so I can see it on the device? Thanks.

Apparently the answer to the riddle is to just shut the device on and off a couple times and play with the SD card...

So, after re-starting the unit, you can see your maps in the available choices? FYI, I think CNNA takes priority over other map sets, so if you really want to use a different one, like a Topo 24, then you have to go into map selection and disable CNNA.

Honestly, I didn't even look under the map choices, I just noticed that I had the background on the map. I also cleared the curent track...

Map Download

The Montana has enough internal memory to handle City Navigator. Is it better to download the map to the Montana's internal memory, or to an SD card?

Better? I certainly don't know. I can only tell you I put it on my SD in case I got a new unit or mine died for some reason... Aldo transferable if I got multiple units.
