Worth the purchase! Great software and excellent customer support! I've been using this for four years, and during my last software upgrade, I had issues with registration. I emailed customer support and received a response with a new registration code within 12 hours. Awesome! The newest software is equally easy to use with options to download from satellite, terrain, street map or hybrid images with output files options including GEOTIFF files! I use it on a Windows 8 tablet with a Clovertrail Atom CPU and the processing demand is low, making it the perfect software for me.
Google Maps Downloader is a tool that can automatically download Google Maps' small tile map images and then combine them into one big map image. It supports multithreads, so the download speed is very fast. And it is very easy to use. All downloaded small images are saved on the disk. You can combine them after downloading or later.
