        NO.     

        APRSpoint is actually a plugin to Microsoft MapPoint, not a separate program.   MapPoint is offered in two versions:   One for North America (Canada, the US and Mexico) and one for Europe (which covers all of Western Europe and year by year an increasing amount of central and eastern Europe).  

        Both cover their respective areas down to street level.   They WILL show the rest of the world when zoomed/scrolled to other areas.   You only get simple outline maps of national borders with internal divisions such as provinces showing, and cities showing only as single-point objects no matter how much you zoom - no other details such as roads, parks, lakes & rivers, etc show.

        APRS position reports WILL show in these areas, but you don't get much detail.  

        More details on MapPoint here on my website:
