TNP Desktop Software

  1. Support for Garmin Bluetooth Connectivity

    It could be really useful to carry a pc or ipad without internal gps and see your position on the map using a Garmin watch such as Instinct.

  2. Add ? (mark) as a marker icon option

    We have 35-40 icon options for markers. I have situations where a simple ? would be the appropriate icon for the mark. Seems like it would be easy to add to options.

    You can use any TrueType font as a marker symbol in TNP (on the PC.) When picking symbols, note the drop down list of “Available Styles”. Choose “System Font Symbols” then whatever Font you wish, then a question mark. You may also want to explore additional symbol fonts – including those that can be downloaded online (in TrueType format.)

  3. Consider using a program called DMAPPER to do live tracking.

    I am with Silver Star Search and Rescue, of Washougal, WA. We have been using a program called DMAPPER to do live APRS tracking. We use Yaesu ham ht's to track our teams with. DMAPPER only costs $40.00, and is well worth the cost. Our trackers only have to reach back to our SAR Base, but if they hit a digipeater, you can follow them on APRS.FI. The program can update their position and keeps track on if the team is moving, when the last time heard from was, or if they have been sitting too long. This is all…

  4. Allow selection of both Name and Area (Total) as the Label in the Fill Area of a polygon.

    I would like to be able to show more than one parameter as the Label in the Polygon Fill Area, specifically, I'd like to be able to choose both Name and Area (Total)

    Our toll free number for live, US-based technical support is published on our web site and in our products: 800-627-7236. Do note that we do not employ a call center, instead callers are answered by those directly responsible for TNP’s design, service, and sales. If you call and get our voicemail, we are likely helping someone else (or in the midst of planning/implementing/testing new features and improvements for TNP). Please leave a voicemail message and we will call you back as soon as we can (usually within an hour, during normal working hours.) Calls that do not leave a voicemail message are automatically discarded by the system and are not able to be returned.

    We pride ourselves on excellent service and support for all our current subscribers. Do note that we are unable to assist callers who do not maintain an active TNP subscription; instead they are welcome to…

  7. I would like to be able to scan a paper trail map and use it as a layer in TNP

    Many parks have campsite and trail maps in paper format. I would like to be able to scan the paper map into a digital format such as a PDF or JPEG and overlay it as a semi transparent layer over a topo map in TNP so that the local trail and campsite information appears on the topo map. I often do not have access to a geocoded TIFF file and would like to simply overlay the map and manipulate it into position using a layer.

    Version 11.04 of Terrain Navigator Pro – released 12/5/2017 includes this new feature. When Information is picked in the Manage MapPacks window – the selection tool will now indicate the area of coverage (of the minimum display scale) of that MapPack. We also added a ‘Find’ button to open the map view at that location.

  11. Start-up Screen

    It would be extremely helpful if when you open the program that you can set a home start location like on Google Earth, so you do not have to continually zoom in and try and locate your area every time.

    Also, it would be very nice to actually view the USGS topos like before so we can read the map information of the sheet.

  12. Add USGS Standard Scales to Map Scale Drop-Down

    Add the conventional USGS map scales (24,000, 50,000, etc.) to the drop-downs for viewing and printing.

  13. Map packs a pain..Need to be able to select tile by tile and/or at least by County.

    We need all of WV aerial and/or satellite imagery on hard drive in event of disaster (internet not available). In previous versions you could select individual image "tiles" to down load. You could then seamlessly scroll n/s/e/w. With Map Pack, to get the whole state, the select tool which then gives you half of all the surrounding states that we don't need. It won't load - to much data....It would be nice to be able to select the tiles by County to get the whole state. It would also be nice to have the aerial and/or satellite images on DVD/CD.…

    You can create a map containing any layer (including polygons) and Export it as a .TIF (or .JPG, or .PDF) by opening the File menu and choosing Print/Publish Maps.

    That said, if you are looking to export the polygon as a GPX, KML/KMZ, Shapefile, or similar format, that is a different matter (and would be a different feature to request,)

  15. Please return to non seamless maps

    I just installed version 11.0. I am not happy that all the maps are seamless now. I work with individual 7.5 minute topo maps and need to know their respective boundaries. I will be uninstalling this version so I can go back to the old system. Also, upon exiting the program should retain the last project you were working on. It is really annoying that one has to re-enter the project each time you log in.

  16. Please make USGS quadrangle grid lines available as an overlay - for topo or any other format

    Quadrangle grid outlines aren't always self-evident even on USGS topo maps. Since my projects are constrained by these grid lines, it's important for me to readily see this grid regardless of the map format I'm in. It should be an overlay. I just spent an inordinate amount of time forcing the grid over my mapping area via point-to-point line drawing. It was t-o-r-t-u-r-e. Given these lines are readily available, this should be an easy thing to do.

    If you need a layer that indicates boundary of the USGS topographic maps, set a custom grid (File, Preferences, Custom Grid) to have coordinate spacing of 0deg, 7min, 30 seconds. Then enable Custom Grid in View, Layer Size/Visibility. Note also that the current quad name is displayed in the TNP titlebar.

    This also has the advantage of being visible, regardless of scale and map type.

  17. Please allow me to adjust the street width layer without affecting other layers.

    Please allow me to adjust the street width layer without affecting other layers. Even minor roads can show up as very wide and give a false impression that even dirt roads are major thoroughfares through a property. As it is, when I reduce the road width, all the other line widths...such as polygons... are reduced as well.

  19. Scroll Bars

    Although while navigating around a map, dragging the little "hand" is usually sufficient, it would be great if one could move along the cardinal directions (N-S-E-W) by use of scroll bars. If one is extremely space conscious or doesn't ever need scroll bars, make it a preference that could be turned on or off

    The Compass Control Bar (on the left side of the map window) is not just a pretty decoration – it is live and active. Press the North arrow to pan the map North, South arrow to pan South, etc.

    Also, use the Page Up and Page Down keys to pan the map North and South. Shift+Page Up/Down pans East and West.

  20. Make TNP more MS Office (or similar products) more import/export friendly

    Make the export/import of markers more friendly to Excel, Access or similar applications. It takes too much formatting, file renaming etc. when this work could probably be done "behind the scenes" in letting TNP make the export files directly compatible and to import same files from other applications.
