Details

MapSend WorldWide Basemap software enables you to create a basemap for any region of the world and upload it to your mapping Magellan GPS receiver. Adding WorldWide basemaps to your Magellan GPS receiver does not erase your built-in basemap -- it enables you to add basic reference map coverage for areas not covered by the built-in map. New basemaps can be loaded and saved via a PC to GPS cable from your PC to your Magellan Meridian series handheld (requires an optional Secure Digital (SD) memory card), directly to the SD card using a card reader/writer, or directly to the memory of your Magellan SporTrak Color, SporTrak Pro, or SporTrak Map receiver.

Each basemap region you define contains the essential basic map features such as cities, highways, waterways, railroads, national boundaries and shorelines. WorldWide Basemap also includes basic topography contours, which can help you stay oriented to your environment and find Points of Interest. In addition to the visual map presentation, the map features can be located using tabular search functions – on the GPS as well as in the PC application. Easily toggle between the built-in basemap and your new WorldWide Basemap. Your Magellan GPS receiver will automatically transition to a detailed map when the zoom scale is 0.4 miles or less and the majority of the displayed is covered by the map.

This is old software for obsolete GPS units, therefore one needs an older OS to run it. Have no trouble at all running this in virtual machine running XP on a WIN7 PC.

Where do I start. It doesn't work with Vista and Magellan won't update it. The patch can't find the previous install. Magellan has no support, don't buy any of their products.

Other reviews of this software on the Internet have noted difficulty with using it. WorldWide Basemap shares this characteristic with the similar product,TopoUSA. Even if you are an experienced computer user, expect to make one or two calls to Magellan tech support. The upside is that their tech support is excellent. If you are a user of TopoUSA, you will be familiar with some of the quirks of this product.
The installation and use frustration is worth the effort to get a world map system that attempts to show topography, major roads, cities and political boundaries for low-end GPS units. The quality of mapping is variable and dated. While not fully reliable or helpful navigation tools, they still provide useful background maps for tracking and coordinate capture in very remote places on the planet. The security system is primitive and overly-restrictive for the normal range of legitimate use for this type of software. Users typically have more than one GPS unit, and provision is needed for a user to register multiple units for use with the product. Hopefully, Thales will update and improve this rather old software, because I feel it's the best of a field of rather weak products.
