http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/?ref=ge as a website was a godsend I felt, but once a file was exported by KML to Google Earth each point had to be manipulated one by one which is rather time consuming with 250 points to deal with. I thought Imap would make life easier. I found that for my needs imap offers exactly the same services as the above website or less and charges me $200 for the privilege. The vector maps for Asia supplied by imap are crude and each country is separate so that I can't see the Indian subcontinent as a whole. The South East Asia map provided through the imap website was not accepted into imap and the resolution was too poor whereas GPS visualiser offered a range of maps free of charge that work.

I think more people are going to use Google Earth where the map can be tilted, moved and scaled to perfection so imap should concentrate on making mapping easier on Google earth. Imap should develop an interface to modify fields and points on Google Earth itself, before the map can be exported as a Tiff file or similar that does not lose resolution unlike JPEGs that swiftly lose their quality if taken from Google.

I would like to make custom icons, modify the icons simultaneously according to group membership rather than one by one, and export the map ... I think so far imap has been a waste of money. GPS Visualiser has everything you need for basic mapping at the moment - imap is a consumer ride to not very far for the money you spend.
