Changes in AccuTerra Maps are underway. IF you get the newsletter, you already know about this. These changes began in version 4.8.5.
AccuTerra is becoming a single layer map for overall better performance. It has all the layers that the three layer map had combined. The current three layer map will be discontinued at the end of January 2013. If you bought after January 2013, you never had the three layer map, and you will not miss it. It was pretty much the same as the single layer map, except it took longer to download and longer to display.
The new single layer map has data up to zoom level 16. This has been newly updated for 2013.
Two new maps called "Hybrid: CalTopo with AccuTerra" and "Hybrid:USTopo with AccuTerra" are now available as map sources. These are two layer maps.
They can be chosen just like any other map source, from "More Map Sources".
Reporting coverage issues.
Since these maps from Accuterra are new, you may find areas where they haven't filled in properly yet.
- I found that an area around Mt Hood, OR
- Another user found an area that was missing data around Nampa ID at zoom level 13 for the hybrid maps.
We are reporting any gaps we find. NeoTreks hopes to have any corrections made by the end of January 2013, so that everyone can switch over smoothly.
