It will come in handy in preparation of the trip

Andrew Nielsen
This is well worth the upgrade.

It has many more tracks than past editions. But, there are tracks that Google maps shows are regularly driven down that are not on the map. If there are twin tracks visible from space, then the track is being regularly being driven down. If I remember correctly, there is an airstrip near Poeppel Well that is marked, but there is a line of airstrips in a North-South line that is to the west of Geosurveys Hill that are not marked.
