During the years Garmin and its services are changing and improving, often?without?us noticing. Every time when I get to browse through the content of the?http://www.garmin.com I’m discovering new content, very often of a big value for GPS users both:?beginners?and pro.
Today: GARMIN Third-Party Maps
I find Garmin as the most complex GPS technology provider in hardware as well as in software. Garmin?maps?cover most of the?countries?around the world and there is no other company doing that much for the GPS communities as Garmin. If you already purchased the cheapest possible GPS, you know what I’m talking about. Very often these kind of units don’t even have a map for the?country?you bought it, not mention any maps for other countries. Then, support or any info?available?on the internet is practically?nonexistent.
Try to compare to Garmin’s support and info in thousands of forums and communities accessible online. Also maps: ?if you can’t find?a map offered by Garmin, most probably you will be able to find other GPS entusiasts who are willing to share their maps, tracks or POIs usually for free.
On?Garmin’s website you will find a list of maps offered by?developers?from around the world. This includes:
Argentina, Australia, Brazil,Canada, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Hungary, India, Jamaica, Latvia, Lithuania, Peru, Republic of Moldova, Republic of Turkey, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Trinidad & Tobago, Ukraine, Uruguay, USA.
If you are a world traveler and use a GPS:
- What’s your brand choice?
- Do you find it possible to get maps coverage for the area you travel?
- Would you agree with me that Garmin has more to offer to the GPS users than any other GPS brand?
