PatchMap for MapSource (AKA PatchMap 2.0)

PatchMap PC 2.0 is an offline alternative to our PatchMap for MapBuddy. It allows you to use PatchMap inside Garmin's MapSource or nRoute software. MapSource is usually used in office environments or when you need to print direction maps when offline. nRoute is used to provide navigation on your laptop in the field using a connected USB GPS Antenna. Both MapSource and nRoute versions are included in a PatchMap PC 2.0 subscription.
