    "Version 7.0 is Horrible!!!"

    April 4, 2013  |   By gmjm66

    Pros

    None: Completely unusable as a route map. Can't transfer information from Google Maps online.

    Cons

    7.0 runs with the globe missing (transparent with yellow lines). After trying many suggestions to fix it, I downgraded back to 6.2,

    You, also, cannot alter the route such as Google Maps -AND- you cannot transfer any information back and forth between the two. All I wanted to do was plot a trip and it was impossible!! Google's extraordinarily lame answer was to plot each section of the trip separately. If I wanted to plot it all by hand, I'd by a real paper map and a highlighter.

    Summary

    v7.0 terrible.
    v6.2 barely usable as long as you don't need to do anything crazy like include side trips.
