    - most of POI's in populated areas are missing
    - street labels are included but not shown except if you point at it
    - same 20m contour lines than in v2
    -> so far no explanation for that loss of data volume
    ...
    btw: topography doesn't change so quickly
    my question: anyone here to provide the DVD / gmap files? tia
    The missing POIs may explain some of the volume loss.
    I would be interested in the DVD (MapSource) version as well.

    Topo Austria v3 is about 100MB smaller in volume because it's in NT format.
    POI don't use much data.

    ...have compared CNE 2013.1, Austria Topo, Austria Topo2 and Austria Topo3 and did not come to a conclusion which is "best". I did choose an area in Carinthia - Kärnten, Lake Weissensee, I know that area quite well. CNE shows most POIs but no DEM layers. Topo and Topo2 shows almost same POis but e.g. no churches and churches are quite helpfull for orientation as you can see the spire from quite some distance. Topo3 shows the churches but far less POIs. It may be that for other regions the results are different but for the shown area I would not know which map to use...

    Do you really need the sql-file for this map? Do you put it together with the img-file on the gps?

    SQL/DB-file "Trail Database".
    It displays special routes or information depending on the activity chosen by the user, differentiating between pedestrian activity cycling activity, etc : Active routing feature in new Garmin Topo maps PRO.

    When I click find, I don't see the trails in the menu. Or something must be wrong with the topo Germany sql-file?
