MapSend Canada

Recommended Posts

Short version: Magellan MapSend Canada has being released.

 

Long version: For a several months now, I had a privilege to test and play

with MapSend Canada - Canadian maps that can be loaded to Magellan Meridian

and 330 series of GPS receivers. I couldn't talk about it much before it was

released, but yesterday, on my way from work, I stopped by an outdoor store

in Mississauga and they just received a shipment, so the cat is out of the

bag!!!

Magellan's own website, hardly mentions anything about this maps. I checked

today and still; the only note about it could find was in the support

section. It still says that: "MapSend Streets and Destinations Canada (Soon

to be Released!)"

Well, obviously the "soon" is now.

Anyway; We (GPS Nuts) are working on a review of it. (Hopefully) soon, the

review will be posted in the "Canadian digest" section of www.gpsnuts.com As

a Canadian, I am naturally very interested in this product. Actually; I

should rephrase it. I am so excited about it that I can't wait any longer

with sharing at least some of the thoughts right away!

In the Canadian Digest, you will find reviews of some other, good, receiver

loadable Canadian maps. I like them very much - they are excellent for my

home town area and several other spot areas in Canada. For the rest of

Canada they are useful but not that good.

Release of MapSend Canada is changing that. Now there finally are GPSR

loadable maps that have very good road coverage of the ENTIRE CANADA As far

as I can see, the road and street detail and accuracy of even the smallest

and most obscure Canadian communities ranges from good to excellent!

Normally, our review of Canadian maps would be based mainly on few, randomly

selected areas, from the ones that interest me personally. Well; Canada is a

large country and I may just think that MapSend Canada gives a good detail

for everywhere, so I'd like to enlist some help with selecting the areas for

the screenshots. Interested? Send me co-ordinates or address or a place name

in the area you'd like to see the screenshots of. I will try to accommodate

a request for each province / territory. If I'm flooded with requests, it

will be "first come, first serve" :-)

Please send your requests, by Monday May 06, 2002 to:
