In addtion to those National Parks, there are also other maps at a scale of 1:25k which cover Great Britain's National Trails (pictured to the left).

Garmin GB Discoverer OS Landranger maps
If you'd like to buy a map which covers a larger area these are also available although these larger area maps are at a scale of 1:50 000. These GB Discoverer maps from the Ordnance Survey Landranger series include Northern England and the Midlands and the all of Great Britain both at a scale of 1:50K.

What the Lake District map provides
When inserted into a compatible Garmin device the GB Discoverer Lake District maps provide Ordnance Survey (OS) maps at a scale of 1:25 000 for the entire National Park. Plus a 1:50 000 scale map for the same area and slighly beyond that area. The map data is the same as the scale found in the OS Explorer Map series (same as the OS orange cover paper maps ). Rather than having folding paper maps to deal with, OS maps are all on your Garmin screen and in the palm of your hand.
As an added bonus this map also includes OS mapping for ALL of Great Britain - but at a lesser scale of 1:250 000 and 1:1000 000. This OS mapping is viewable down to the 0.8mile resolution of a Garmin handheld (e.g. in a Garmin Colorado and a Garmin Oregon). Any closer than 0.8mile, e.g. 0.5miles, and the mapping reverts to the (also included) NAVTEQ road mapping - still very useful, with road names - AND don't forget that this is for ALL of Great Britain, not just the specific National Park or Trail which this map covers at 1:25K.

Please note: When using the purchased map, the SD card needs to remain in your Garmin device at all times so the map can be read. The map card cannot be copied to either your Garmin unit or external hard drive. However the map SD card can be used in multiple compatible Garmin devices, but only one at a time.

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 are looking for Topo maps of Great Britain, then you'd need to consider buying one of the three regions that cover and make up Great Britain, these are: Scotland, Northern England and the Midlands and Southern England and Wales.
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.
