  1. Sorry to hear about the demise of the seamless scanned topo maps, but I'm happy to know you're working on some alternatives. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this program. It's very much appreciated.
  2. Is there a way to go back to the older topo maps? These newer gold colored shaded relief topo maps are not very easy read. They are over compressed and I can see a lot of JPEG compression artifacts in the images, especially at zoom levels 16 and higher. Also a lot of the text and the topo features just don't stand out like they use to. Some of the rural roads are now a very faint thin gray line, almost indistinguishable from a regular contour line. I've been experimenting with the automatic downloadable USGS scanned topo maps as an alternative, but keep getting random image load failures. I'll keep trying. It may have something to do with my internet connection. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
  3. The problem has been resolved. Thanks Dan! Just to let others know, I was saving the GPX files to my hard drive first and then copying them manually (via drag & drop) to my GPS unit, rather than having ExpertGPS do the transfer. This ends up creating generic GPX files that are not always fully compatible with the GPS unit, hence the reason for the track colors being off.
  4. I have a Garmin Etrex 30. Something has changed between version 5.48 and 5.79 that's causing the track colors to appear red on the GPS map display, even though the track type is setup to display a different color. The GPX files that I created under version 5.48 display just fine, but if I re-save them under version 5.79, the problem pops up. I noticed the GPX/XML code for the track color assignments is vastly different between the two versions. Do I need to make some sort of an adjustment to the software settings?
