  • transfering waypoints

    You can use the Topo USA program included with the DeLorme PN-60 to import the waypoints, then export the waypoint from Topo USA to GPX format.

    The Garmin will them be able to import the GPX file.
  • planing trip want to add addresses to my favorites before I get there

    Yes, you will be able to do that once you install and activate the map.
  • The red dot

    Wow, I wrote that article nine years ago, but didn't remember the answer myself.
  • National Weather Service using map data from Garmin?

    While there have been some changes at DeLorme (the most publicly being the closure of "The Map Store" at the HQ), there are little other changes that most consumers would see. The Gazetteers that most people know DeLorme for continue to be produced and as far as I know continue to be updated. The produce quite a trove of maps that many outdoors people rely on, particularly in the North East USA. Just as many people in Jersey will tell you where they live based on exit numbers, many people around here will tell you which page number of the Gazetteer from their state they live within.

    The Eattmate PN-Series GPS has been discontinued, along with Street Atlas USA and Topo North America. The digital map data sets (used to power things like Topo USA) are still alive as is Xmap (their more pro cartography program).
