Terrabrowser is an Internet browser for satellite photos and topographical maps which are obtained from the Microsoft Terra Server. The map data is provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and therefore only covers the United States at this time (although expansion to other map servers may occur in the future). Although a GPS receiver is not required to enjoy Terrabrowser, using one opens up more extensive features such as bookmark transfer, and tracklog/route display. Includes extensive bookmarking support, image cache, address search, region more...

How do you load the GPSMAP 60c City Select programs with a Mac - I thought it only PC based.

Terrabrowser 1.5 alpha 3 is now out (still alpha, so not listed on MacUpdate) and adds support for color images of some urban areas. Check it out at the Terrabrowser web page:

This app is the business - and with a feature rich rewrite in Cocoa coming, is just going to get better. No problems with connecting to the GPS, no problems getting waypoints, no problems with the photos/maps.

I'd say this is _the_ GPS app for the Mac.

This is a great program, just what I needed for hiking/camping. The topo feature is a great plus, bookmarking is handy too.

The only feature I would add is a 'forced zoom' to zoom in more than the 1 meter / pixel limit. Other than that, this program is fantastic. Thanx!

Great app. Much better then having to use the website. I wish the MS servers where faster and that some of the sat images where more current, but that has no bearing on the actual program.

Dude - it's called Terrabrowser because it uses the Microsoft "Terra Server." If you look at the readme, it says that the inputing of city name is a feature which may be added later. I also disagree with your statement about latitude/longitude. Many people have their own GPS units these days, and this program is a great companion to those receivers. If you don't have one, then don't use the program. Also - 2 stars for stability? Has it *ever* crashed on you? Do you know the meaning of stability?

Should be called USAbrowser, since it's useless for anybody outside the US.

Also the lack of being able to input city names or a decent user interface makes it a nerd's application. I mean how many people know the longditude & latitude of their current location?

The only advantage.......it's free.
