It's been a pretty busy month for me, so I haven't had a chance to get a build out for a while.  Well, here it is!  Thanks to my other distractions and a spate of nice weather, there are a lot of submissions that have been included since the last release.

Well after looking at them after updating my GPS, they IMO don't look so hot on my 60CX.  It could be that I have just gotten way to used to the old format, but with the faint grayish outline and opaqueness between the segments they cover a far larger area then before and when zoomed out very far they start covering a lot of the screen. 

Also not a fan of the dot dot dash minor trail.

Just my opinion.

I'm finding that it is almost impossible to create something that looks good on a 60 as well as an Oregon.  I think I might start offering a three different typesets.

FYI, there is no dot dot dash format to minor trails.  It's all dots.  It's just that things tend to get munged together with different lengths, orientations, etc.

"•Tweaked high visibility typeset to try to make trails more visible against colored backgrounds"

I must say I also prefer the last version of high visablity trails to this one with the grayish outline. I use both a 60cx and an Oregon400t and they both seemed fine to me on the last version. What appears to be a plain dashed red line, as opposed to the outlined red line.

I've already adjusted the install packages to include three options now, so you will have the "old" style back.  All three styles will be available in the next releases of NW Trails and NW Topos.

I just want to thank you for all the hard work you put into this and for being so accommodating. I for one never want to sound ungrateful for everything you have done.

Which reminds me I have to get the latest batch of submissions in.

I downloaded the nw trails map but can't get it to load into mapsource. At first it said it wasn't a mapsource file so I updated mapsource and now it say no error found but doesn't seem to load. If I try to just open the zip file it tries to crash my lap top. Not sure what to do. Any suggestions?

What are the specs of your laptop (specifically OS) and what other Mapsource maps do you have installed?  If you are not able to even unzip the file, it sounds like you might have a corrupt download.  Have you tried re-downloading?

I have windows vista business. I have several maps. Az topo 1.25, Cal topo 1.0, Ibycus usa 2.0, Osm world routable, p c basemap, trip & waypoint manager v4, and Wa topo. Maybe with the Wa topo already installed, I do not need the nw trails map? I deleted the trails maps that I had already and downloaded again with the same results.

If you are unable to unzip the download, how were you able to install it initially?  It must be unzipped to run the install package.

When you installed, did you see anything during the process that would indicate there was a problem (i.e. a screen telling you that install was not successful, etc.)?
