It's only available at the present time for download, huge even for broadband. 321mb
I have the time and the speed but as with Ultimate Traffic, I like to buy on CD. That will be out "shortly" as they put it. They figure another few weeks for it.
It looks fantastic!

Thanks for the tip, I downloaded it yesterday. It took about 35 minutes. I then took off from the Greater Rochester International Airport. (yes, the name is longer than the runway) and followed the very roads I would drive on to get home to my street, which is a dead wnd about a 1/4 mile long.
This program is fantastic!!! 😀

Funny that you should say that, I've always said that we have the worlds greatest research library at our fingertips.
I've been on it around 9 years now and the information that I can find never ceases to amaze me. Yes

OK, first off, I am still thrilled with my USA roads. I do have a concern though, it has sucked my FPS way down. If I am near a busy airport like Kennedy in NY, I am down to about 8 frames per sec. Other areas that are less populated, I am running 25-35 FPS. before I installed this I was at 50+ most of the time. I run everything wide open, I want to enjoy the whole experience.
I have a AMD athalon 2.4 with 1gig of RAM and a NVIDIA 5600 with 256meg of video ram on board. rev 5.21.6
I just reformated and reloaded everything, so I know I do not have the most up to date driver, because windows is recomending an older driver and I thought I would try it. the latest rev is 56.72
I am about to install it and see if there is an improvement.

I just felt like I should let people know that this is a memory hog, and you should prepare for it.

Follow up
I just installed the new drivers, and took off from Kennnedy. My FPs ranged from 5.4 to 22.5, the average was 9-10fps. I should add that I have UT and a tighter USA mesh than the out of the box.
I still really like the USA roads add on.......but that might be just because my road is on there. 😀
