I have to admit I find TOPO to be quite useful. This past weekend a few of us cachers were out in Cali, and chasing down a cache that looked to be right in the middle of the area where a road forked, out in the desert. Which way to take? It didn't seem to matter, as the cache was right inbetween the two roads. Looking at the screen I was able to tell that there was quite a significant hill between the cache and one of the roads. We opted to go right instead of left at the fork, and had a nice walk straight to the cache, instead of having to go up over the hill....
As a matter of fact, I finally gave in (after 2 and a half years of caching with the basemap ONLY) and got TOPO and a 128 SD card. I have every single subdivision street in the southwest U.S. now. I really don't know how I got along without it!
A new cache just listed? Get outta my way!
