Us 5 Camp Posted December 11, 2002 Share Posted December 11, 2002 My father has just invested in a GPSMAP196 for flying and RV'ing (rural & snowbird travel). The unit will accept City Select as well as Metroguide. Which would you recommend. I've looked at the map viewers and they look very similar, though different in detail for certain areas I've explored. (metroguide had more lakes, etc) City select appeared to have some of the smallest roads named where metroguide appeared to just have a road like my Topo does. In practice from those with a little more than "mapsource viewer" time behind them, what are your opions? PS... I'd like to order one or the other with a data card ASAP so I can have it here this weekend when they visit. He's not the most computer savy, so I'll be helping him get things setup while he's here.
