TopoMapPro vrs NZMapped in New Zealand Posted July 30, 2002 I am a NZMapped User quote:Originally posted by BigNick:Can NZMapped import a list of waypoints in WGS84 format (the website says Northing and Easting, implying NZGD49, is this the case?) Yes It can, not sure how you would import NZGD49 though...despite what the website says... quote:Originally posted by BigNick:I am planning on changing from TUMONZ and was wondering if anyone used both TopoMapPro and NZMapped and can comment as to whether the extra money for TopoMapPro is worth it? I have only tried the demo of TopoMapPro and couldn't see any huge advantages except the large scale maps and the ability to add orthophotos. quote:Originally posted by BigNick:By the looks of it, neither will let you upload tracklogs which is a pity. Yes, this is annoying. quote:Originally posted by BigNick:I have seen TopoMapPro running on a laptop being used for moving map display - has anyone done this with NZMapped and can comment? Yes this works, have tried it in a very limited test. Didn't have any problems. quote:Originally posted by BigNick:The final question is about zoom - TopoMapPro has all the different maps scanned 1:50000 1:250000 etc I can't tell if this is the case with NZMapped - can you zoom out (eg to see a map of NZ like on Buxley’s geocaching page?) You can zoom out to cover large portions of NZ, but because it only has 1:50000 scanned maps it doesn't end up very practical. It slows down to a crawl and the resulting image isn't that usable. This has never really been a problem for me though as I haven't needed to zoom right out and the larger scale maps are available online for free anyway.
