I bought the National Geographic TOPO! "Streets and 3-D Views" expansion pack last weekend, and it is really "cool" for lack of a better word. It does 3-D views (Like the DeLorme 5.0) streets and roads, live map updates and my favorite feature; "Fly-Thrus." You can set your trail on the map, and the progam will take you on a 3-D trip down the trail. It also accepts many newer GPS models than the TOPO! program does. It's only about $20.00, and works with any state NG TOPO! program.

Ride safe,
Hans

If you have TopoUSA be sure to download the latest service pack which includes USB drivers for Garmin GPS units.
