I found the mapping software to be utterly infuriating, non intuitive and unfriendly. I expect some sort of a learning curve but any and all Windows conventions are ignored, so doing anything is an utterly frustrating experience. No doubt you learn in time :-( For example if you want open a route you might expect to use File, Open. No. It's "Overlay".
I joined Walkingworld to get access to routes on-line. All routes download with the same waypoint names. Daft but there you are. So you can renumber them before loading them into your GPS can't you? Yes. One at a time, manually, at about 3 keystrokes per waypoint. Grrr!!
Or - (and I swear I am nothing to do with this company) you could use Mapyx Quo. The maps are significantly cheaper, the software is much more Windows compliant and easy to use. Don't get me wrong, there's a learning curve, but no more than you would expect. And support is really good if you need advice. You want to renumber those waypoints mentioned above? Easy. Set a prefix, say "Helvellyn" followed by %N and it's done. Your Helvellyn points don't get tangled with your Coniston points. Easy. Try the free download, which includes maps to practice on (very useful if you're going to the Peak Ditrict - hint!) before you spend money on MM.
I bought this item with a view to testing the useability of this product in a walking environment and found it adequate in its use. I would have prefered a more detailed mapping environment and so I will be looking towards a 1:25000 scale solution.
For casual use in the area the product is fine.
If you're not already committed to MM, look at the competition. Better software is available and cheaper maps.
Update May 2012 - take a look at the OS Getamap website
it probably does everything you need and it offers full access to 50k AND 25k maps at a very reasonable price.
