PJ, April 24, 2013 Great product combined with TOPO 24K gives perfect detail.
Ryan, April 20, 2013 Straightforward online subscription activation process, just register the GPS with Garmin, download Garmin BaseCamp for free, scratch the secret code on the back of the subscription card, & start picking your image areas to download. Search Garmin's website for their how-to youtube video. I wish the imagery was more up to date for my area (interior BC - North Thompson), as it is with Google Earth, which apparently uses the same DigitalGlobe data source. However, the accuracy and detail is good in many areas I've checked in the Lower Mainland & Greater Victoria BC, although the download speed is fairly slow, but I'm very happy with the subscription price for unlimited imagery downloads for one year. On a limited budget & with a little effort, I recommend combining with the free download Ibycus Topo (4.0 at time of writing) for street, vegetation, & topo map of Canada.
Very happy with my gpscity.ca experience!
Peter, February 26, 2013 For any area outside of urban areas, the resolution is much worse that of Google earth.
Mel, January 21, 2013 I have used Birdseye satellite imagery in the Murchison
region of Western Australia with a Garmin 62S.
Unfortunately there is a line........on one side the
imagery is great, comparable to google earth and Landgate
Arial photography........you can zoom down to individual
trees, perfect for navigation when I am on the ground or
motorbike.........on the other side which is the area I am
interested in the imagery is very poor quality, blurry low
resolution and not of much use. I have used exactly the
same procedures to download the imagery so it cannot be
that......I initially used Birdseye in this area about two
years ago and thought that maybe the imagery had been
updated so last week I deleted the original downloads and
problem.......disapointing.......that said I have still
found it useful to have on my 62S, it has helped me find
larger landmarks like big granite rocks, follow breakaway
ridges and creeklines and get a broad overview of the area
I am in.........so overall useful......just frustrating
that the quality changes so much and the change is right in
the area I am exploring
