How can we improve Terrain Navigator Pro? (Desktop Software)

USGS Hybrid Topo/Photo "US National Map"

I want to use the new "US National Map" topos that the USGS is creating in TNP. I know your street overlay and aerial photos are just as detailed, but my agency needs the "official USGS" edition.

        One item that is often overlooked in TNP is the photo labeling. Like the street overlay, TNP includes the latest available - so the aerial photos are always labeled with current features and streets. In most cases, this produces a map that is more current and of higher resolution than the "US Map" series available from the USGS.

        It is nice that the street maps & aerial photos are fairly up-to date. But, for our search & rescue group, it has been frustrating to work with maps where names of trails, lakes, mountains and other terrain features are out of date. It has been a source of confusion several times. Now we've bumped into it enough that we tend to look at other sources for terrain names, info, etc. first, and then see which names are still correct in TNPro.
