Has anyone tried Overland Navigator Software:

Looks like a good interface for a touch screen.

Looks just like NG Topo!. Same maps, same features, and same capabilities.

I thought that NG Topo v4.5 did that as well.

Actually, it looks better to me. NG Topo, IMO, is very difficult to work. I've had many issues with it's tracking ability. The interface appearance of this software looks much more user friendly (could be deceiving 8-) ), and it looks like it would zoom to a higher resolution than NG Topo. It also appears that the maps are more expensive (CA requires 3 map packs @ $40 each vs $80 total for NG Topo), but you probably get what you pay for.

I wish you could test it before you purchase it.... :( :roll:

Version 4.5 allowed the software to interface with a couple of new handheld GPS units - but I didn't see any change in the interface...
