This is the best mapping software that Garmin has. It is far superior than the Mapsource Topo. The roads and maps are very accurate. With certain Garmin units, you can get turn-by-turn audible and visual directions to any destination in the U.S. On my unit, if you miss a turn during the directions process, the unit automatically recalculates the directions and starts over. You can plug in an exact address and the software will pinpoint it on the map and then download it to the unit. Very user friendly.

My only complaint about the software is that Garmin should have automatic updates on their webite for new roads which are built every year. My software is already outdated in that roads which were built in my area within the last year do not appear.
