I’ve just started using Topo Explorer – and to be honest it’s one of the most bug-ridden pieces of code I’ve seen in a long time.
It looks evident that a ‘date for ship’ was set; product out of the door regardless of quality, feature completeness or usability.
I’ve been logging issues in the forum; issues include high CPU and RAM utilisation; corrupted profiles; IE errors – and lots and lots of half-finished usability features.
More concerning is that the username and password for the Topo web service are stored in clear text in an xml doc in the local profile. This user name and password are tied to the users email address, contact details and most importantly credits and purchase history for the Topo Super Quad maps. Very poor.
