Comments about Glacier & Waterton Lakes National Parks Explorer 3D:
This is essentially a 3D topo map and as such is about as informative. Interesting to see the landscape from another perspective, though no details are shown other than a brown approximation. No trails, rock formations, landmarks or vegetation. The gui and controls are also antiquated and unforgivably unintuitive given the advances in modern software. Save your money until more effort is put in to this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
