Free USGS Topo PDF Maps & Acrobat GPS Plugin

Recommended Posts

This was posted over on Savage sun the other day and I thought it was a great resource:

 

Download free highly detailed USGS topographic maps in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format here:

And there is also a free Acrobat Reader plugin that will show your current locaiton on the maps if you have a GPS device attached to your computer:

I tried the plugin about a year ago, and couldn't get it to work with my GPS receiver. I seem to recall that you had to set the COM ports or somesuch, and I couldn't find a setting that worked for me. My receiver is a Delorme USB.

 

Has anyone been successful getting it to work?

I cannot even get the GARMIN software I have that came with my GPS to load correctly on my PC. :(

 

I am going to have to pay someone to come over and fix it.

Cool, can't wait to look at them more closely. I am constantly looking for map sources that don't cost an arm and a leg!

Wow, it must be nice to say that. I would like to have one of those in my XJ. I do not think I could in my YJ.

 

PS - Sorry for the "dot dot dot" D. :rolleyes:
