DeLorme Street Atlas

What is the difference between the DeLorme Street Atlas and the Pro version? One is 50 bucks and the Pro version is 100 bucks. Is there anything that $100 version has that justifies dropping 100 on it? Rather than just getting the regular version.... I looked for the differences but really oculdnt come up with anything.

Thanks in advance!

There isn't a "Street Atlas Pro" that I can find. However, there is a Street Atlas Plus. The Plus version is basically the same as The standard version with the addition of a Residential and Business Phone Directory and possibly a few more editing goodies.

Would I buy the Plus version for chasing? No.

I think I will stick with the 50 buck version, I dont see anything there that justifies spending the extra 50

I mean Plus. I knew it began with a P and was the upgrade version of it the regular program. :roll: Oops. Sorry for the confusion!
 
Thats Okay Todd.. I goof all the time! I was even replying as Jeff was replying. He's gotta be a faster typist than I am... :D
 
I prefer SA 2003 to SA 2005 as the secondary and dirt roads are a grayish/blue color on the '05 which is harder to see than the black lines for roads used on 2003. It works fine using the "mobile map colors", but the default setting is harder to make out.

Other than some minor cosmetic differences, I haven't seen any reason to upgrade from 2003 to 2005 software...GF
 
Hey GPS'ers,

My brothers and I just got a Wx Worx unit. The GPS that it came with is not very good at all. So you guys are saying that SA 2005 has dirt road as well as all those little roads we as chasers need?

Thanks in advance for your replies,

B.p.
 
Yes. SA has all the little roads, the problem is that it does not tell you if they are paved or not. I have even been on some roads that were a heavier red color on SA and they were not paved. It is a good idea to have "The Roads of" atlases to consult if you need to be sure.
 
The main reason you are paying the extra $100 is the phone directory. I have the delorme street atlas and it works great for chasing, but I would not pay the extra $100 if that is all you use it for. I also have an in dash GPS and it comes with the phone directory. I own a mobile business and I'm on the road year round and the phone directory is a great resource that pays for itself over a year in 411 charges especially if you have cingular, I think they charge $1.99 for information now. Hope that helps some.
