      "Great Program"

      November 09, 2005   |   By rspress

      Version: Terrabrowser 1.5b3

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I think duckhue is missing the point of this program!

      I have been using it for years and not only does it work well. The developer is once of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of writing to for tech support.

      I just got a GPS unit and I love the GPS integration that this program offers. In fact I do most of my route planning with this program. True I really don't need a GPS to places I have been hundreds of times but it makes a boring drive more interesting having the GPS along. The program is also good for scoping out an area before going there for a Geocache hunting trip.

      A great program and a great developer gives this top marks in my book!

      "Worked well for me"

      March 06, 2005   |   By toad_DMC

      Version: Terrabrowser 1.5a9

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Saw comments about difficulty getting desired results that suggested it worked best by entering only Zip Code. In my experience, having used the "Search for location" feature several times, it works very well with full address lookups (I looked up 3 local addresses and 2 in other metropolitan areas, and one that was totally rural... 2 of these weren't covered by the higher quality "urban" settings). Topo maps are great for locating the area of interest, photos are OK when the finer "Urban" coverage isn't available, but in a pinch the photos can be useful. Data are free, and if it costs $15 to get this flexible an interface then certainly for some of us this will be very much worth it.
      PRinting/saving needs serious work, but I see much promist in this app!!

      "2nd try"

      Summary

      OK, I tried it again. It does work but only when you just type the zip code. The B/W photos are poor quality and not close enough. It's good for the price I quess. I won't be buying it anytime soon. There are really good close color ones you can get on the internet. They cost more, but it's worth it if you need it. I don't need it. It would be more like a toy for me.

      "Getting better all the time, responsive developer"

      December 24, 2004   |   By mnovack

      Version: Terrabrowser 1.5a8

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I had a minor issue when trying the 1.5 alpha in that my old registered serial number wouldn't work. Read me said to e-mail, so I did. Ryan not only responded with an updated serial number, but was also very receptive to my suggestions and let me know that an even newer version was just posted. The option-drag feature now shows useful (and very accurate) range figures. Upcoming GPS features are going to be great.

      I've had a great time with this software and can say that for me it was well worth the reasonable price. I feel good about supporting developers like this.

      "Does not support all usgs map types?"

      No support for the lattest map types? Uban areas are full colour maps from a few years ago, available from terraserver, it will not download them?

      Not sure if it is me?

      "Awesome Product"

      February 17, 2004   |   By thesparksfamily_dotmac

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      i have been using Terrabrowser for work and for geocaching and it is a great product. I have come to rely in it for both. My only suggestion would be to add support for Magellan GPS receivers to the Garmin already supported.

      Thanks for a great piece of software

      "Doesn't work for me"

      August 20, 2003   |   By dbreiser

      Version: Terrabrowser 1.1.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I have an iMac running system 10.2.6 on a DSL connection, and Terrabrowser always hangs with the progress bar at about 25% whenever I click on Fetch photo or map. I get quick turnaround if I use a browser to hit Terraserver. But trying at several times during the day, and to both servers mentioned in the read me file, this software fails to display any image or map.

      "Great software"

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Fantastic, great for my geocahing needs (I know, I'm a cheater....=) Simple to use, but it would be nice to have the option of saving the red location dot on the map when saved to disk. No suggestions other than that.

      "Getting Better All the Time"

      May 27, 2003   |   By rspress

      Version: Terrabrowser 1.0.3

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      This great little app just keeps getting better!

      The app does save the images as one single file. Just choose save under file.

      What could be better?

      1. Indication of the date the pictures were taken....useful for time sensitive matters!

      2. Make compression setting in save dialog stick! Image always sets to jpeg 50 percent.

      3. Maybe a window with an outline of the USA, including state boundries the you could click to help narrow in a search for pics.
