    If anyone has tried using their BRMB map in Canadian parks, they will know that the contrast of the green (park color) and the blue (drainage, creeks) is not enough. I use my Garmin to snowshoe in the parks in open country. Unfortunately I unknowinly run into creeks that I cannot pass, because of this contrast problem. All BRMB needs to do is lighten the green color. I submitted a suggestion to them over a yr ago on this. I just purchased their latest version and the problem is still not corrected.
    Luckily though, I live on Vancouver island and Rob Loranger has posted a Vancouver Island map in which the creeks are clearly visible in Canadian parks. His map can be found on the GPSFileDepot site.
