Mac GPS Pro


I purchased Mac GPS Pro back at the beginning of the year to work with maps on my Garmin Oregon. I purchased the maps from Mac GPS Pro as well so that I would have what I think I needed. One of the neat things you can do with GPS Pro is upload your own raster maps and calibrate them with GPS Pro. I found some really good hiking maps with trails and actually used some maps that you can download from the USGS site. I calibrated the downloaded maps with GPS Pro and then proceeded to locate and get the gps coordinates for various places that I go to and entered waypoints and created routes on the digital maps in GPS Pro. I then entered the gps coordinates for the different waypoints, i.e., road turnoffs, campgrounds, campsites, secret hunting spots, etc., and entered them into my Garmin Oregon and even added POI's into My Favorites on my Nuvi 255W. I actually got out this past weekend and tested both units and the gps coordinates I entered into both units using GPS Pro were dead on! I will definitely be using the Mac GPS Pro more now that I know it's capabilities. (I also have Garmin's Basecamp but I have yet to go into that program to see what it can do). I have a non-Intel Mac running OS 10.4.9 and the latest version of Mac GPS Pro works great. To give you an idea of what kind of maps you can use (for those who like hiking in the Superstition Mountains in Arizona), check out this site:
