I have been interested in GPS for years but never felt I could justify the cost for a personal use toy. Fortunatly my loving wife felt otherwise and purchased a Crossover for me.
I find that the thing is totally amazing and that the vehicle navigation is spot on even if it can't tell weather the road it is showing is active or abandoned.
My question is on the accuracy and usefulness of the base topo map as compared to the Mapsend Topo.
I am an amateur history buff and enjoy locating abandoned houses and defunct towns.
I will use it mostly in the Northeast and am rarely if ever more than 3 or 4 miles from a road.
I normally locate my quarry on old (pre 1930) topo maps or other sources and then hike to them. With the crossover I will I will set my park point as base and then my target as a waypoint using the backtrack and footprint features.
My question is would the Mapsend topos give me any significant advantage over the base map and what would the advantage be?
I am very familiar with the general topgraphy in the ares of interest
