Seems quite glitchy on any browser, but no doubt will be sorted out (too many "cannot access data").

Huge number of layers, including mineral occurrences (eg by commodity type e.g. gold), geology etc. I suspect they will add more.

Looked at my place in the GT using nationalmap and it is still showing a fence and trees that I got rid of about 7 years ago.
And a very low resolution as well.

You're right Redfin very old images, and no street view.

Rural and small town areas are slower to update the maps than city . Most mapping apps appear to have that data curve.

If it seems glitchy try the same thing on a computer that has a big graphics card , that might be your issue

No it needs a network connection.

If you have something like a Panasonic Toughbook with GPS card option they will work provided you are in a network coverage area.

Some people use Motion X- HD on I-Phone or Ipad with GPS which gives multiple mapping layers but its heavy on battery consumption.

i have found a couple of phone apps (not the motion X-HD) but didn't really want to use my phone. Is there a map that you can download to be used on a handheld GPS? pretty much everywhere i go there's no internet/reception

You would have to check the specs for every handheld GPS , i think you are better off to use a device designed to store large capacity data files that also have live GPS , Android / I-Pad tablets , Toughbooks and Algiz 7 / 8 fit that bill.

The value in using the tablets is the amount of map layers that you can turn on / off.

Have you played with Google Earth when loaded with Australian Goldmine waypoints ? The waypoints can be downloaded into google earth from a post on this forum.

That can also be used on tablets or laptops and while the resolution is less than National.Maps , it is very useful for research and field mapping.
