I have a Map 330, and Mapsend Topo. Is there a setting
to increase the detail? I can't seem to find one. For an example, look at (The Spot Geocache):
http://www.topozone.com/map.asp....=s&s=25
There is a deep gully, but Mapsend Topo doesn't seem to show it (it only shows a creek on a smooth hill)...This is kind of important to me, as I was on the other side of gully. How do I get it to display on my PC screen, and how do I get these more detailed maps down to my Map 330? Or is this a limitation of the software?  ???

In the GPS model of the universe, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line...through creeks, thorn bushes, horse piles, whatever....

It's a limitation of Magellan's topo software.

The topo data is derived from the Geological Survey's 1 degree digital elevation model database, but in order to fit the entire US onto a single CD (4 GB of data was compressed to 100 MB - the rest is street data and points of interest), each sample point represents about 100 yards x 100 yards.

A 1/1 via the trail around the hill?
Nah... that's too easy!  Let's go up and over!
Why follow a trail when we can blaze our own? :p

We *make* mountains out of mole hills!
