Other maps to consider
As well as Garmin GB Discoverer mapping series, there are also a number of other Garmin maps that are also available.
Similar maps to GB Discoverer are the Garmin TOPO or Topographical maps, these maps whilst not as rich in map detail will provide contours, elevation, main roads, rivers, etc.
If you'd like to use your Garmin handheld on the waters around the British Isles or abroad then you need to buy Garmin BlueChart maps.
These marine charts work in the same way as the GB Discoverer and are also supplied on plug-and-play SD cards.
