Features

Screenshots

Below is a picture of the map inside of mapsource (6.14.X):

This screenshot compares the Florida Topo (left) to Garmin US Topo (middle) to Garmin Topo 2008 (rigth). With the exception of the DEM shading you can see that the Florida Topo is significantly more detailed.

 

The screenshot below shows some of the attributes this map has that the Garmin Topo's are lacking.  In this case, its canoe waterways in the Everglades.  Also, this map has bathymetric data.
