I use it. Eats memory like nobody's business, careful about your area selections. Also, they have a download limit per block of I think 250 MBs, so it's not like you can select all of Colorado and go away while it downloads all day. But, it's great fun to hike and see where you are, overlaid with the topos...I've got my tree stands labeled and hiking areas set. I set the Birdseye to "brighter" on my Montana; washes out the image a little but the topo lines show up better against it. The resolution is not as high as Google maps, and I think they're 2005 images, but it is what it is. I think also you can find satellite maps on the net. I just did this cause it was easy through Basecamp.
