Playing With TopoFusion

Last week I experimented with TopoFusion, which is a GPS Mapping Program. It pics up where the available Garmin software leaves off. One of the best things about it is the ability to use a wide assortment of maps that are hosted on a server. This means that you don’t have to pay for the expensive Garmin maps. TopoFusion is only a pc program, which is a bummer. I’m a Mac guy, but I’ve got a netbook so I’ve been playing with the demo for a few days. I’ve since hooked it up to real monitor and have been trying to learn it. So far so good.

One of the coolest features is the ability to playback multiple .GPX files at the same time. I’m still learning how to capture it properly, but here’s test video. This is my commute from three different days. It’s interesting to see how much faster one day is than the other. You can also see how much time is lost at traffic lights. This looks best in HD, so if you have the time, let it load.
