The problem isn't the lack of maps per se. It is the well, "uglyness" of
the maps, and lack of accuracy. There was a thread here the other day
about just that. Yes, you can make your own maps, but I do not have the
patience or the desire to do so. With APRSPoint, you hit the ground
running with accurate maps of the whole US, no muss, no fuss.

Huh?  Xastir and lack of maps in the same sentence?  Something wrong
there...

Xastir handles more types of maps by far than any other client, plus has
the latest street data.  2003 Tiger data not good enough for your
purposes?
