The Core Functions of the Included Street Atlas USA 2011 Software Are:
Map Controls: The DeLorme Street Atlas USA 2011 maps can be controlled using a variety of methods, including the traditional push-button zooming, which drills in/out while keeping the map exactly centered. Also, holding down the left mouse button enables you to drag and zoom, left-to-right, across the map, and moving the mouse in the same manner but in the opposite direction zooms out.
Find/Search: New in Street Atlas USA 2011, the E-Z Nav wizard makes on-the-go routing a breeze by routing directly from your search results while actively navigating with your Earthmate GPS LT-40. Just search on any category, choose your destination (retailer, hospital, gas station, friend’s address, etc), and start real-time navigation with your GPS receiver. Great for daily and overall trip planning, too. In addition, there are several search functions available in the Find tab. First is a simple box called QuickSearch, where you type common requests including towns, cities, lat/lons, ZIP codes, street addresses, colleges, and many more to receive the quickest possible matches. The places-of-interest search offers more advanced parameters and the advanced search is used when locating exact matches requires additional customer input.
Draw: With the DeLorme Street Atlas USA 2011 software you can add MapNotes; draw your own circles, polygons, and squares; measure the area of your draw objects - even draw in your own roads and route on them - these are amazingly powerful draw tools for the money.
Information: Right-click on the Street Atlas USA 2011 map to learn more about what’s underneath your cursor. Latitude/Longitude, names of streets and bodies of water - even local radio station information - can be viewed in this manner. Moreover, the bottom toolbar of the software displays a continuously updated readout of what’s underneath your cursor.
Voice: The voice tab of the DeLorme Street Atlas USA 2011 software is where you train the software to recognize your voice for issuing routing and GPS commands while tracking. Ask common questions such as “How far to my next turn?” and the software answers. A microphone is recommended for optimal usage. The software also reads upcoming turn information, including the time to turn, time to finish, and name of the street to turn onto. New voice settings allow you to select how far in advance of your turn you’d like to be prompted. Voice can also be turned off if you prefer.
Netlink and Aerial Imagery: NetLink is your online link to DeLorme for $40 of free aerial imagery now included with the Street Atlas USA 2011 version. Select your areas of interest and download only those grids to the software. Toggle the imagery on and off in a single-screen view. Add notes and draw objects to the imagery to customize lifelike views from space.
