RE: Computer maps

One of the pucks I ordered is the latest GlobalSat. The generic one I received yesterday didn't work in S&T or MapsPro, so I've requested updated drivers. I've taken the Roca Azul, Sal & Barb's, Lake Camecuaro, Uruapan route to Parzcuaro. To visit Rancho la Mesa, it appears as if the Morelia bypass will be the quickest and easiest way. I've been on many of the backroads, and as my RV is 30 years old, I prefer the cuuota, due to the presence of the Green Angels. Also, since my RV is a non-dually campervan, I pay the same tolls as a car.

RE: Computer maps

The map is now clickable, thanks for the help. I've ordered 4 different USB pucks, and at least one of them will work in Win 10, without resulting in the dreaded BSOD.

RE: Computer maps

Thanks for the info, as I'm pretty low on the learning curve. Looks like I may need to take an extra laptop if I want to track S&T and MapsPro. I've been on that bypass, and it is in MapsPro. I have the GPS coordinates for the new libramiento, and hopefully it will be done by August, so I can plug them into my Garmin 2757LM

RE: Computer maps

This is the first leg of my proposed summer trip. 2017 1st leg The Guadalajara bypass isn't showing up yet, so hopefully it will by this summer. It will be interesting to see if I can use the "track my position" in S&T and MapsPro at the same time.

RE: Computer maps

I've got the program working. I saved my 15 waypoints in 3 GPX files, and when the program opens, it shows the first leg of my proposed summer trip. However, to open it again, I need to re-boot my laptop. I ordered a GlobalSat BU-353-S4 puck which is known to work with the program, and, hopefully, with Win 10. And yes, the developer is very responsive, so the program may be a keeper.

RE: Computer maps

After re-downloading this morning, the program is working. The interface is rather clunky, and while planning a route, it will only accept 10 waypoints. I've saved the map as a GPX file, but apparently it will only save if your map has 6 waypoints or less , One good thing is it shows traffic direction, which will take some of the mystery of cloverleafs on the new city bypasses. Another nice feature is that when you click on a waypoint, it brings up Google Earth. I won't travel until this summer, so will see.

RE: Computer maps

Has anyone tried the latest MS Maps Pro? They claim it is a replacement for S & T. It also has the ability to use an external USB GPS. Thus far, none that I have will work with Windows 10, but the latest update included GPS driver update. I haven't had time to play with it, but might show some promise. You can get a demo version, or purchase the app for $4.99.

RE: Roads

Iguana, you're thinking of La Pilarica, which is close to town, and North of Pemex #4925, which Briansue is referring to La Pilarica

RE: Water?

I live in Mexico, and, like the locals, drink bottled water. A truck comes by 3 times a week, I throw them the keys to the gate, they bring the 19 liter bottle up 3 floors, and when done, throw the key back up. "When in Rome..."
