By 2011 Garmin users traveling to or living in Hawaii and Puerto Rico will have access to 24K topographic maps. This announcement follows previous additions of extensive coverage across the continental US and Alaska.
The maps will be available on preloaded microSD/SD card for easy installation in your Garmin GPS. Each map region is sold separately and can be used in many of Garmin's available handheld devices. The maps are fully compatible with units that show DEM 3D terrain shading and route elevation profiles. Those Garmin devices that do not show shaded relief will still show elevation contour lines and shoreline detail.
Expected arrival of the Hawaii and Puerto Rico topo map cards is December 30, 2010, just in time to celebrate the New Year on one of these picturesque islands!
