Features

The Delorme Earthmate PN-30 features the PN-Series Map DVDs that provides users with a solution to transfer maps to the GPS device or to an SD card, from either PCs or Macs. This update includes details for U.S. topography, U.S. and Canada streets, roads, and places of interest, and Mexico main roads. Also included is a sample certificate for the online DeLorme Map Library, where users can go to download aerial imagery, USGS 1:24,000 topographic quads, and NOAA nautical charts. All Map Library downloads can be sent directly to, and displayed on the PN-30. Users can also download and keep all the Map Library maps and imagery they want (subscription required; PC and Mac accessible). Other features on the PN-30 are Realtree® AP™ camouflage pattern, is suitable for a wide range of activities, including hiking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, kayaking, geocaching, and more; has support for Navionics Charts - HotMaps (lake) and Gold (marine) charts, which are sold separately by major boating and sporting goods suppliers; and Topo USA Mapping Software that does desktop mapping on the PC. Users can scout their trips in advance, create road and trail routes automatically, print maps, and geo-tag photos with their exact GPS location. The Topo USA feature generates realistic 3-D views of any U.S. location, with flyovers, and displays aerial imagery, USGS quad, and NOAA nautical chart downloads from the DeLorme Map Library. The up-to-date detail includes 4 million places of interest, plus campgrounds, boat ramps, BLM lands, and national parks and forests. The PN-30 has an impact-resistant and waterproof (IPX7) rubberized housing. PN-Series receivers have performed successfully in some of the world's most extreme conditions ─ most recently during this year's Victorinox North Pole 09 expedition, and famed climber Ed Viesturs' May ascent of Mt. Everest. The PN-30 will be available beginning in July 2009.
