Jim Bergen, December 31, 1969 Version 1.10 of MapSend acts like a first version of the software. I use the software extensively on my laptop while travelling around Southwest Asia. The software inexplicably requires the CD to be inserted when running it. This uses more precious battery power on a portable system. Even Microsoft Streets & Trips doesn't require the CD to be inserted to run the software! The company wrote me that they have no plans to change this requirement, which would lead me to either other software or another GPS altogether on my next purchase. I presume this is because they are afraid that their software will be pirated. And don't think about making a backup copy of the CD, it's protected with SafeDisc2. However, you can get ONE backup copy free of charge by sending your receipt to the company. If this backup and the replacement get messed up, you're out of luck until you pay again!
The addition of routes and tracks to a map creates a horrendous yellow line that is not editable, other than the points that are added or deleted. If you delete the wrong point, you can't undo it.
Forget about creating a map to upload to your Magellan GPS. You can upload routes and waypoints, but not an edited map because you can't edit the map.
Uploading regions, routes and waypoints to the device (in my case a SporTrak Pro) is fairly painless, although the design of the connection to the GPS could be better. Having to use a serial adapter is archaic at best, and many laptops don't come with a serial connection. USB has been out for a while now!
Travelling while running the MapSend software shows relevant information in a small area of the window that you can't glance at while driving, you have to pretty much stop to see the data. The cursor moving across the screen is ok.
All in all, this software has a long way to go to be a totally useable software package, especially if you want to use it real time on a laptop.
