Default map program ??

Looking for a mapping program for scouting.
I have dial up internet ONLY, so google earth and the like will not help, I need a CD based mapping program.

1) needs topos, good topos not 30' lines
2) Photo's ? do any have photos ?
3) update-able?

Thanks,
Slack

I suggest visiting an establishment that has broadband internet and go to www.flashearth.com it uses all of the maps from google, yahoo, msn, etc.

Check out: http://www.topo.com

National Geographics State Topos are pretty nice and they print well on a good inkjet. Just print the maps you want. Used the National Geographic mylar type paper and the ink will NOT run or smear.The software is CD based and can be a little on the spendy side. $100 per state. I use it in conjunction with a Magellan Meridan Platinum GPS and it works great. I can upload waypoint and tracks directly to the mapping software and then print them. I work for an engineering firm and these maps are better than the normal USGS quads we import into CAD drawings. I don't regret spending the $100.
