Excel Map Chart with Roads or County Boundries

Larry Opanasenko 6 Reputation points

I'm using Excel 365 and creating 2-D Map Charts with US States, Counties or Zip Codes. I'd like to be able to overlay major roads or County Boundaries (for Zip Code Maps). It would be great if all I needed to do was to select the map and then go to FORMAT DATA SERIES and have options to include (1) dots for the center of cities with the name of the city, (2) Major Roads, (3) County Boundaries (on a Zip Code Map).

I saw some suggestions on overlaying a picture on the chart map but that doesn't work well. Am I missing an easy way to do this? If not, I'd like to make this suggestion to MS as a great feature to add.
