We are using the brand new version of CITY SELECT Version 4.01

Today we were out geocaching on the new scenic byway which runs between Silver Bay and Hoyt Lakes. FYI: Our GARMIN V seemed to be confused until we realized that the roads had been recently changed to accomodate the new scenic byway. Once we got on the old road portions the mapping system worked fine.

Also, in checking the businesses in the town of Ely, which we are familiar with, we found that many of the businesses are not located in the correct spot- if using this system you might check the locations of a town with which you are familiar.

My experience has been with Garmin's MetroGuide maps. I've found that the POIs for businesses and specific addresses typically get you to the right block. not right to the door.

In checking the city of Ely, bussnesses were of in some cases by several block- in fact one drugstore is marked as being in what is a residential area. Other businesses were off by a block or two-not even on the same strett- but others are right on-
