As they are updated, you automatically get the newest one. Also aerial photos. You can print in about 10 different scales of size. Interacts with your GPS so you can put waypoints, tracks, and routes back and forth form computer to instrument and vice versa.

I print'em on lead foil; wind doesn't stand much of a chance then.
You can adjust the map from horizontal to upright , the size you want and as much detail in it as you want. You an even move the map around to get it just the way you want it before previewing the final product. They offer waterproof ones for paddling , either folded or rolled , your choice.
I just ordered in a custom Topo of a river I want to paddle and camp on and the whole custom map , a 24 by 36 waterproof one , including postage was $17.20.
They offer three sizes ... 18 x 24 , 24 x 36 , 36 x48
If I was to drive to Orlando and get the standard Topo I would of needed two of them to cover the different quadrants. ( Providing the map store has them in stock) to have what is on this one and they would not be waterproof or customized the way I want one for paddling. The last standard Government topo I got at the map store they were $15.00 each.
