A good place to usually start could have been the geoscience website where you would find this:

Thanks W1..Guess the fact that you have clicked that site indicates you may have a need or interest in that type of product.If you or your circle of travelling companions have used this vendors product or others,would you care to indicate your success or otherwise to date?

I have been using the NATMAP Raster Mosaic for a while now and have downloaded GPS tracks onto it etc. It all works very well but you have to bear in mind that the scale of the maps mean there is some degree of difference between a GPS track position and the Raster product but all in all I'm surprised how well they match. You also have to be aware that new features won't appear on these products for a fair while so you have to be a little flexible in their use.

I'm pretty confident they don't cater for Mac's.

Sorry Rocky I have no interest in Mac or OS2 as our computers are all Windows. We do have NATMAP 2003 that we use through Oziexplore.

My point was if you look hard enough you will get the info such as operting system that supports NATMAP.
