My opinion on OzToppo V2 compared with T4A, Both great software, After having a quick flyover of Australia on OzToppo V2 I was a bit disappointed not see all the Simpson Desert Tracks , i.e.Rig Rd is OK, QAA ends at the border, Knolls Track ends , K1 Does not reach to Poepell Corner,WAA has a gap, and the CSR is not shown, Cape York is on par with T4A, Seems to me to much emphasise has gone into cities and towns That City Navigator 2008 covers anyhow instead of the 4x4 tracks that T4A covered ,The Contours are brilliant on the other hand. So if anyone is thinking about it and having to send the T4A CD back as per requested make sure you make a full copy to the hard drive or copy to a CD rom , Glad I kept a copy so I have the City Navigator 2008 , OzToppo V2 , T4A, and the new Contours installed to the Nuvi 760.

Righto then Doug, what's your recommendation (coming as a bloke who's just taken delivery of the Garmin Vista HCx)? Does a bloke just get shonky and all the free ware or spend the $ and get Oztoppo? What's going to cut the mustard and why?

My needs - Back-up to Trackranger/ozi. Used for remote area hiking (think Great Sandy Desert and Rudall River NP) and perhaps geocaching (If I can become expert enough...mind you my stuff will be so remote it's bound to be there for a while!).

Look forward to hearing your advice.

Mick.

P.S. Don't need all the city stuff as Trackranger takes care of that. Purely for exploration of our magnificent outback.

Cheers. Mick

My honest opinion is for way way outback is this, if you have T4A keep it , if you havn't ....get your claws on it, the free stuff I have been told does not have the same level of data,I certainly won't be letting go of the copy of my original CD of T4A.
No I did not get a Garmin Vista HCx, I got the new Nuvi 760.
I have already sent an email of my dissapointment in the OzToppo map detail to GPS-Oz, mind you the Contours are supreme.

Ta doug.

No I'm the man with the new Vista. Arrived from the states two weeks back. Just have to get a map load for it, hense my question. I'll start saving for the Oztoppo/T4A pack then.

Cheers. Mick

Hi Doug

Unfortunately we didn;t catch these omissions before we "went to print". We are currently preparing a free update that will include the tracks that you mention. Our intention was to make OZtopo V2 much more detailed than T4A or any other product in the market. The update will be available shortly, 1-2 weeks so hang in there!

Our apologies for the omissions and thanks for the email. If you find any other omissions (hopefully not) please advise us immediately.
