     Caveat emptor, Frank. I called DeLorme to tell them about a couple of local 
    mistakes, roads that didn't exist, were never built, or had been demapped 20+ 
    years ago and physically were cut off. They said thank you--but ten years 
    later, posted no changes.
     I've been told that their errors are *intentional* and this is an old 
    cartographer's tradition, to make and keep minor mistakes so that if someone 
    else simply copies the map--the proof of the copying is that those terribly 
    unlikely errors get copies with it.
     Not as bad the as Russians relocating entire cities during the cold war...but 
    still, I think unacceptable. A guy could literally get killed trying to 
    follow some roads the DeLorme has mapped--over a cliff.
