Garmin now offers the ability to include aerial and satellite photos.

I have a Delorme PN40SE. It's one of the biggest pieces of CRAP I've ever owned and it was a waste of a ton of money. The POS locks up constantly when trying to use it. Been doing that for the past two years, of course now that it's out of warranty. It's utterly useless.

Their so-called support is a joke. If you post to their web forum, one of their moderators, based up in Washington, will EDIT YOUR POST if he doesn't like how you phrase stuff because he's very easily offended.

On top of that, they STILL do not support the Mac and apparently have no plans to do so. Even Garmin has started providing Mac-compatible software.

DeLorme's "Topo USA" software has the worst UI of any program I have ever used. It doesn't follow any UI standards and is just painful and frustrating. It's powerful, but the learning curve is just too steep, and I'm a techie!
