Is there anywhere where i can see and get a demonstration of how it works? I am very interested, but I don't spend $ 100 unseen. Thanks

Hi Jorgen,

If you have an iphone or ipad you could download the trial version of memory map and it will then download the 250k maps that you are talking about. It doesn't download the whole map at once but the area on the screen that you are looking at. As you move around an area it downloads the next bit etc.
The good part is it saves whats downloaded in memory.

Hope this helps.

How it works.... these are map files only that can be viewed through map viewing software, basic map viewing software is provided on the disc.

You need extra software like Ozi Explorer or Track Ranger to get the full benefits from these maps and be able to use them for navigation.

Nearly everyone who uses the two above software packages use these maps as standard.

Three questions...
1) What do you want to do with these maps?
2) What are you expecting from them for $100?
3) Do you have mapping software?

The Natmap DVD does come with "viewing software" so that you can look at the maps on a computer... but nothing else. No moving map.... so will need moving map software as mentioned above.
