Nope, you're not the only one....I cannot use MyTopo either....and if I'm remembering correctly (which I'm probably not) I don't remember being able to since I've figured out how to use MOBAC which is only about a month or so ago....

I've been using MOBAC 1.8 with great success fetching from Terraserver USA source. I've tried MyTopo (USA only)a few times and cannot download any maps from that source. Is MyTopo now among the unavailable sources, or am I just unlucky at the times I've tried it?

Yeah, and I'm a champion procrastinator so I haven't even started on the maps I want! 🙁 :blush:

Looks like the map providers want to control who uses their data. :huh:
In other words charge for the data. 🙁

Oh well, it is their data I guess. :dry:

Looks like we have to ask the map data providers to let us use their stuff...here is the post from MOBAC forum

Hi MOBAC users,

I am sorry but I had to make a again a big change regarding MOBAC:

During the last weeks more and more map source provider and other related "geo data agencies" (as I would call them) demand to remove this or that map source and/or region from MOBAC.
As I am not in a mood to answer and process their (sometimes very friendly and sometimes a bit harsh) mails on a daily basis I decided to remove all map sources that are not basing on OpenStreetMap data. Those changes apply to all versions starting with v1.9 beta 2. Older versions has been removed
However I will re-add them if I get a positive response (acceptance) from the map provider - but I will not actively ask the map provider myself because there are too many of them. I will keep on focus my self on the programming part of MOBAC.

If you are missing your favorite map source it is up to you to get into contact with the map provider and get the required acceptance.

The only alternative from my point of view would be to remove all versions and and end the MOBAC project which would be not a good alternative from my point of view.

It's up to us to ask them ....go and read the rest of the MOBAC forum
