I should have read through the OP's problem more carefully - I somehow missed that it was the version of a topo map from a sat image (never seen that before) that was the problem.
Would this version work? (Reverting to the screen shot and print method that I disparaged earlier.) https://mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php? ... &z=12&t=t5

Thanks for that link. There are borderless Toporama tifs in the Raster section that you can use. As they are georeferenced if you put them into a GIS package (there are quite a few free ones) they should all line up side by side.

I use ArcGIS at work so I can input georeferenced Canmatrix maps and make the borders transparent to create a bigger map wth more detail or use the original vector datasets if I am being really fussy about it. Purple rivers anyone!

That being said I think the Toporama ones are all on Caltopo, select USGS maps, so you may as well just use that. You need a subscription to print bigger than letter size but it does let you create multipage pdf so it is quite easy to cover a whole route.

Thanks for that Chris, I'm exploring Caltopo right now. On the durface, it seems to be just what I was after all along.
Cheers,
Bryan

It will cost you per printed map but at sites such as http://mytopo.com you can get printed maps shipped to you plus the site offers excellent other custom map benefits for example,

Scale
you can pick the scale, for instance, 1:75000 for a lake so that the entire lake fits onto a single map page, but use 1:50000 for river sections, etc.

Paper
waterproof maps or not, your choice

Flexible map boundaries
You can print a map that covers the intersection of 4 topos instead of printing each of the 4 maps.

All of this is much easier to use than figuring out other software (assuming you don't know and have GIS etc.)
