Gary Anderson, January 10, 2009 For the first time Garmin is beginning to roll out 24K Topo maps
on very convenient microSD cards. ( includes SD card adapter )
No computer needed, just put it in your unit and go. No fuss, no
All I can say is it is about time !
They are starting with the western states and going east. If your
state is not covered yet, please be patient. They are all coming.
This is the highest level of mapping detail available for your
Garmin unit. They work best on the new Colorado and Oregon
series units as you will see see 3-D views and color terrain
shading on these units only. Very Nice !!
These are a must have for hikers, geocachers and any outdoor
Highly recommended !!
High Sierra Sportsman, December 16, 2008 Basically a waste of money since it is NOT readable on
your computer screen. It does not say it on the box,
however Garmin should understand that their users need
to link their GPS from their field unit to their PC
for proper route planning, record history of trails,
roads etc and be able to back-up that information over
I purchased this Micro-1/24K card for use in a Garmin
60 CSx that I use for hiking, fishing, ATV routing,
snowmobiling, 4X4'ing. I create maps using MapSource
CD Software to record waypoints and routes, special
interests, bridges, hunting & fishing areas, etc.
Over the winter I open up my maps and transfer them to
USGS 24K paper maps for quick reference. I bought this
24k map software so it would be compatible to USGS
1/24k maps even by map Name.
I will still be able to transfer the data, but now
only directly from the GPS screen using the 'pointer'
to get the UTM grid coordinates out. I called Garmin
directly and asked about the compatibility and after
many 'holds' and a rude customer service Rep, it was
confirmed that this microSD software is NOT readable
by computer. I made a rather 'strong' suggestion to
product marketing that this information should be on
the box and in the internet product descriptions. The
only option is to save waypoints from previously
existing Mapsource maps to the 60 CSx by removing the
card from the unit, save it to the internal memory of
the unit, then replace the card. Customer Service made
it very clear that if I saved the tracks and waypoints
to the unit before removing the card, it would over-
write the $100 1/24k software and it would be
irretrievable. Since I cannot dowload the information
from the GPS, there is no known program to copy the
information to another Micro SD, if my unit was to
crash I would lose years of waypoints, points of
interest, routes, etc.
Garmin seems to be going back in time and Technology
with their recent Oregon & Colorado GPS software &
durability disasters, and now this. My 2001 Black &
White Garmin E-Trex VISTA with Metric MapSource CD's
is more diverse than 8 years of R&D in a new unit and
new Software. Really, what good is a highly detailed
map if you cannot take advantage of the detail by
viewing it on the big screen of your PC to plan a
route if you cannot transfer it to your Field Unit GPS?
Garmin...Why not make this 1/24k scale map on CD?
GARMIN.....are you listening?
