    only thing i dont like is that it doesn't use get-style URLs... so linking to a navigated map is going to be impossible,.

    B - Look at the top-right of the page. There's a link that says "Link to this page".

    free > not free

    Why would I want to purchase a 30 dollar program that I would use maybe 3 times a year?

    way more detail, actual landmarks, it works world wide
    if you take 3 trips a year for 10 years that require a map and you paid a dollar each trip for the most detailed map you have ever seen

    I guess you'd have to take into account that I never actually go anywhere. :(
