  1. Offer a simple, basic and less expensive version.

    I used your product way back when it was Map Tech. Enjoyed and utilized it immensely. Then it started becoming more complicated. Features became more complex and consequently less intuitive, i.e. harder to use. Terrain Navigator became "Pro" and now it is described as a premium application. I suppose if I were in real estate, construction, or forestry business I would be apt to need, and actually use, some of the highly touted (but ultimately expensive) features. As a hiker, hunter, and fisherman, all I want is a topo application where I can upload gps data, measure distances, figure elevation…

      Sadly, the economics of producing a low-cost PC desktop software product are not favorable. Maptech ultimately dissolved over ten years ago, in part due to attempting to offer a low-priced product. Under MyTopo’s ownership the recreational ‘standard edition’ was briefly revived; but was later discontinued. Finally, the current owner of Terrain Navigator, Trimble, closed its recreational/consumer division Trimble Outdoors in early 2016. We’ve tried three times to make the economics of a low-cost product work, and have no plans to try it a fourth time.

        • Easily create shaded areas with different paterns.

          For SAR planning in identifying areas and segments that have been searched. Could have multiple layers of paterns covering the same areas or segments to indicate different types of searches within.

            • To export tiif images w/ a user-defined area, the registration is poor, particularly between adjacacent images.

              This can easily be tested by aligning several images. Pl;ease fix this, it has been a problem for years now. We are talking about errors of 50 feet or better between images (Texas).

              • Remove Circle when entering GPS Cooridinates

                When entering GPS Cooridinates the system puts a circle that you have to move around in to find the location. This is time consuming. The system should put a Geo Pin in the location and not have to search in a circle. It also puts a blue circle with a ? in place of the Geo Pin. We need the pin not a blue circle

                • Open Maps Screen

                  Please return to the Open Maps Screen from TNP 10. The updated Open Maps Screen in TNP 11 is useless. An aerial photo of my state and surrounding states with no delineation, highways or county lines is nearly impossible to start navigation. I enjoyed the old Open Maps Screen because you could click on a quadrant in a county and it would take you right where you need to go. Now i have to guess where to start, zoom in and wait for TNP to catch up. Its inefficient and difficult to use; more time in the office messing with…

                    Due to our need to provide maps beyond the USGS grid model, the “Open Map” window had to be retired.

                    That said, there are far easier (and efficient) ways to select maps (and set specific starting locations) in TNP 11. For details, please see: https://tnp.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1110553

                    Finally, when scaled out, the USGS, Terrain, and Street map types will all show various features/boundaries/roadways. These maps are far superior than the simple “county map” that was present in the prior version of TNP.

                    • Tag track name with imported file folder name

                      When I import a track from my gps file, the imported tracks are given an "ACTIVE LOG" number, which has no meaning to me------just seems like a bunch of random numbers. It would be useful to have the imported file name attached to each track. That way I would not have to rename all of the tracks that were imported.

                          By Garmin’s design, the eTrex Venture does not support “Custom Maps”. This is not something that we can address in TNP – unless Garmin chooses to open up their proprietary map format. Considering that Garmin now includes Custom Map support in most of its current GPSs, I think that is unlikely.

                          For a detailed list of GPSs supported by TNP, please see:
