Thought this might be helpful to anyone looking for a map resource to add to their GPS.

I posted a thread asking if anyone currently uses TrakMaps and didn't receive a response. At first glance I was disappointed with the lack of detail and misguided portage routes. However, I wanted input before I made my final judgement. I received some screenshots from a CCR member using Backroads and compared them to images on TrakMaps. I think you'll agree that Backroads is far superior in every way.

I would also love to see some of Garmins imagery. If anyone wants to post some on this thread by all means go ahead. Or PM me and I will add them.

The screenshots below are in/or near Eagle, Turner, Barter, Aston Lake(s) also close to (just south of) Sugar Lake Conservation. This zone is north of Access 12 on Jeff's Maps (Red Squirrel Rd) Temagami.

To add insult to injury neither the store (Sail) or TrakMaps would refund me my money. Needless to say there's a version of TrakMaps on Kijiji for sale.

So the first picture below is using Backroads, the second picture is of the same area is using TrakMaps. 3rd is Backroads, 4th is TrakMaps and so on.
