Garmin Cycle Maps

Garmin Edge owners with one of Garmin's latest Edge models including the Garmin Edge 530, Edge 830, Edge 1000, Edge Explore 820, Edge Explore 1000 and Edge Touring/Touring Plus, can buy and use one of the following Garmin map titles:

1. Cycle Maps
2. TOPO Maps
3. GB Discoverer Maps

Each of these maps are perfect for cycling, some e.g. Garmin TOPO maps are better for off-road cycling.

If you own an older Garmin Edge device e.g. Garmin Edge 800, Edge 705, Edge 605, unfortunately these map titles are not compatible.

To check compatibility of your Garmin Edge model please see the map product page, we list the full compatibility for a particular map e.g. Garmin Europe Cycle map. If you are unsure or want advice before making your purchase please contact us.


1. Garmin Cycle Maps

Comprising of two Garmin Cycle map titles, you can choose to buy and add either UK and European cycle maps or USA, Canada and Mexico / Central America cycle maps to your compatible Garmin Edge device.

Garmin cycle maps come supplied on preprogrammed data card, which once installed enables you to select cycling, tour cycling or mountain biking options and then select the appropriate route for the type of cycling you do, taking you on paved roads, unpaved roads, or on paths and trails.

The Garmin Cycle maps pre-programmed SD/microSD card includes community-generated OpenStreetMap (OSM) database and provides searchable points of interest (restaurants, hotels, hostels, trains stations, etc.), cities, addresses and more.

3. Garmin TOPO Maps

For cycling in Great Britain the Garmin TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25K map offers the best detail with Ordnance Survey (OS) maps at a scale of 1:25K. Although a lesser scale map featuring OS mapping at 1:50K is also available. If you are heading onto mainland Europe and require the same level of detail, please view the complete Garmin TOPO map series, these are the maps you should consider for use with your compatible Garmin Edge cycle device.

For example the Spanish TOPO map features and displays turn-by-turn street navigation for more than 2 million km (1.2 million miles) of road and trail network, with 56,000 km (35,000 miles) of off-road recreational trail.

TOPO (short for topographic) maps feature contours, elevation, on road and off road navigation often at a scale of 1:25K. However, all of the Garmin TOPO maps feature different scales, so please refer to an individual TOPO map for the scale. For example TOPO France maps features topographic vector map data from IGN at a scale of 1:25K.

Pictured below screen shots from the TOPO France maps.

Countries available in TOPO format include: France, Germany and Austria. All Garmin TOPO maps come supplied on plug-and-play SD/microSD Card.

2. Garmin GB Discoverer Maps

Garmin GB Discoverer map titles have been discontinued by Garmin and replaced by the Garmin TOPO map series (see above section). We do however have a limited number of Garmin GB Discoverer map titles left in stock.

Garmin GB Discoverer maps feature full Ordnance Survey (OS) maps at a scale of either 1:25K. When these maps are loaded into a compatible Garmin Edge device they will display equivalent OS Explorer (1:25K) maps on the screen of your Garmin Edge cycling GPS system.

1:25K scale maps cover specific National Parks and National Trails e.g. North Yorkshire Moors, North Highlands and Yorkshire Wolds Way.
