Mapsource/basecamp map background color

 

Example, IL is in yellow, WI is grey when zoomed in at 20/50 mi (basecamp/mapsource respectively) or closer.

Why are they in different colors?

How does one even search for a state?

I suppose it doesn't matter.

I suppose it doesn't matter. I did the route, all 540 miles of it. No issues at all even with the parts in WI.

In My Case

All of New England plus PA and CT are in grey tint on my PC using both Mapsource and Basecamp. The only other grey tint shows up in populated areas when zoomed in.

Most of the work I do with these programs is in this area as is my home location. When I close the programs, the screen is usually left centered somewhere within this area. Perhaps the programs remember this over time and color the screen accordingly?

Just a guess but it's an interesting feature I never noticed before.

Grey

On a Mac and seeing the grey for WI and the northeast from PA/NJ and on up.

No idea why.

@bdhsfz6

I haven't done a trip in WI in years. Everything has been west, south, or east. Ridden too many miles in WI in years past. Eventually got bored.

We'll see what it looks like in the next update.
