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..."

RE: Picking a destination for next year?

My favorite town in the Nayarit is Sayulita. It does tend to be somewhat of a surfer dude type. There is only one RV park, and it can be difficult to get into. Rincon de Guyabitos, farther South, is more laid back, and has everything you need. Dalia's is a good place to stay, and is very reasonable. It is also close to LaPenita, which has a great market.

RE: Picking a destination for next year?

Like it or not, the dollar is the world currency. As it strengthens, prices in pesos are adjusted upward to maintain the economic status quo. So no, I don't think there is price gouging, only businesses trying to survive. We all remember when it was $10p to the dollar, and today the national bank rate was $17.55p. The Canadians are the ones hurting. Obviously I'm not a economic wizard, but having lived full time in Mexico for the past 6 years, I may have a different outlook.

RE: Picking a destination for next year?

For something a little different in the Mazatlán area, take a look at Tres Amigos. It is on a peninsula, and Mazatlán itself, is just a water taxi away. There are also four other major parks in the area Yes, the parks are raising their prices, as their expenses remain constant whether they have occupants or not. Each year there are fewer of them as the land is too valuable, and condos are replacing the prime locations. More and more, RV'ers are leaving their rigs in Mexico, and flying both ways. Gas price, which is currently $2.81 per gallon for magna, becomes a factor for long distance travelers.

RE: RV parks or dry camping near Taxco

The link is correct, and I have stayed there in the past. However, there are some incorrect postings on the left side of their Facebook page that refer to the Gulf coast. There is also an El Paraiso near San Blas.

RE: RV parks or dry camping near Taxco

The facilities are excellent, and the English speaking owner and family live on site. You could also visit the Zoofari, Amacuzac River rafting, and the second largest cave system in Mexico, Grutas Cacahuamilpa, is a short distance away.

RE: RV parks or dry camping near Taxco

Lots of room at El Paraiso, Amacuzac, about 30 miles from Taxco El Paraiso Trailer Park
