This program looks great, has anyone tried it out yet or anything?

And if it works on a 60csx theres no reason it wont work on a Vista HCx right?

This program looks great, has anyone tried it out yet or anything?I gave it a go a few months back.
My opinion - forget it. The program attempts to display raster images automagically on a Garmin GPS, Mapsource etc. The results are ugly, creates HUGE files and SLOOOW redraw. No thanks. Unless great improvements are made I see no future in this mapping method. Hope I'm wrong.
If you want to see the results simply download one of their sample maps. As a guestimate all of Australia at Shonkymap detail = 100GB+. :goodluck

Edit:
There are always opposing opinions:

I agree Nev
Have not actually tried it, but when I looked into it, I felt it would only be worth it for small (cropped) raster maps of specific areas.
I saw it mentioned on the yahoo GPS60CSx forum. The guy that used it made maps of small areas of coral reefs for sea kayaking.
