Download Performance
 
I decided to give this product a try to use with my Garmin 62st, though with trepidation after reading other reviews. So far, my experience has been different. I have done a number of downloads and I'll provide data on one which was typical:PC Platform: Dell laptop, Win7, wireless-n connection, Comcast providerTime of test: 9:30AM PDTBirdsEye Download: Seattle downtown & environs, highest detailSize: 3370 images, 42MBTime to download: 5 Min 45 sec

Pathetic Download Performance...
 
Download Bandwidth Quality of Service failure by Garmin...The Base Camp software (free) runs a a good speed. No problems with the current version. Moving data to the unit or to Micro SD card is normal USB 2.0 speed.The imagery is OK. Max zoom levels on the "highest" quality images as they appear on the unit is no where close to satallite imagery in Google Earth or even the lower resolution in Google Maps. They display very nicely in the Base Camp software.This i...

Make your plan ahead..
 
This is a review for the Garmin BirdsEye Satellite Imagery One-Year Subscription.The imagery not only covers the US area, but also have the global coverage. Please be aware that the imagery you can download to your device is not the same as the imagery in the Google Earth. So, even you can find 2-3 meter resolution image in the Google Earth at the place you interested, you may end up only has the LANDSAT (~15 m) image from the BirdEye Subscription. Unfortunately, Garmin will not tell...

Works... BUT SLOW.....
 
It takes about 1 hr to do 30 MB of pics... Basecamp is buggy and freezes even on the best of PC...It seem cool and it is. But I would not have spent my money if I had known it was so painful to use. To bad, great idea, the doesn't work well.

Unusably slow
 
I wish I had seen the other review before I purchased my subscription. Leaving tomorrow, but thought, "how long can it take to download a few megabytes?". Well it can take a VERY long time from Garmin. The first download went fairly quickly to 1.8% (not speedy, but perhaps acceptable, but then it just stop going anywhere (still says it's downloading. The others are stuck at 0%.Don't fall for this unless you have the patience of Job (and then necessary time). It is unusably slow....

Garmin really missed the boat here, great idea, poor performance
 
The program runs so slow even on the faster computer to the point it is almost unusable

Waste of money
 
£19.00 for a three month subscription to download crap image mapping that looks no better than google maps??After spending £399.00 on a Garmin Edge 800 I'd expect to get this quality mapping free with the product.Complete and utter rip offer. Don't waste your money.

Worthwhile for us
 
For reference, our computers are dual-core MacBook Pros with a 12Mb/sec UVERSE connection. I find the Birdseye download speed to be acceptable, if not great (especially before 6AM Eastern). Downloading highest resolution, the resolution is very good on the Macs with BaseCamp (which I generally like), but a little bit less so on the etrex 20 display. For example, it's a bit hard to pick out a green river in a green forest and low-head dams on the river (covered by water) aren't always easy to sp...

After One Year of Use
 
Its obvious Garmin doesn't come here to see what people are saying about their product, Other wise, after a year of People whinging about the CRAZY SLOW download speed of the Birdseye imagery, they might have done something. BUT THEY HAVE NOT.Ok, I use the GPSmap 78s(used the old '12' years ago, and the '76' after that. Got the 78s August 2011) I use the GPS about 200 field days a year in the Mojave desert (California for you non-Americans). The highest quality coverage here is quite...

Complete waste of Money
 
Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing directly from Garmin. Area I intended to use maps for is obscured in BirdsEye but not Google. Also resolution even at highest setting isn't that great. Garmin will not refund.
