Garmin GPSMAP 86s and GPSMAP 86i Maps

Do you own a Garmin GPSMAP 86s or Garmin GPSMAP 86i?

Then you need to read on to discover the additional maps you can buy from ActiveGPS and install to take the Garmin GPSMAP 86s, GPSMAP 86sc, GPSMAP 86i or GPSMAP 86sci and view your outdoor adventures in a whole new, more detailed way than ever before!

As standard the Garmin GPSMAP 86 models are both preloaded with a worldwide basemap. The basemap includes major roads, rivers, lakes, etc. Whilst useful, this information doesn't match up to the additional mapping that is available to use with the Garmin GPSMAP 86 marine handheld GPS devices.

The additional maps that are available provide rich specific map data for different purposes e.g. City Navigator NT maps which provides street-level road maps, perfect when using the Garmin GPSMAP 86 in a car for navigation or for road cycling. In total there are four different types of maps that can be used within the Garmin GPSMAP 86. Read on to discover more about them.


Garmin GPSMAP 86 TOPO Maps

Topographical maps or TOPO maps (for short) range are the premium map series from Garmin for exploring and navigating the great outdoors and countryside of Great Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, TransAlpine and Austria and Switzerland to name a few of the available Garmin TOPO map titles. As well as hiking/walking, the Garmin topographic map series are also perfect for mountain biking, skiing, etc and provide high-detailed scale maps of around 1:50K to 1:25K scale.

The latest Garmin TOPO map series uses the best in available maps for each country. For example, Great Britain TOPO maps use Ordnance Survey (OS) data at a scale of either 1:50K or 1:25K, while the French TOPO map titles use IGN data at a scale of 1:25K.

For walking/hiking in Great Britain, Garmin GPSMAP 86s and Garmin GPSMAP 86i owners have two options:

1. Garmin TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25K SD/microSD card (pictured right)
2. Garmin TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:50K SD/microSD card

All Garmin TOPO maps come supplied on plug-and-play SD/microSD card.

Garmin GPSMAP 86 City Navigator NT Maps

If you are seeking street-level road maps for your Garmin GPSMAP 86s or Garmin GPSMAP 86i for driving, road cycling, etc, then look no further than the Garmin City Navigator NT map series. Garmin City Navigator maps feature street-level detail for a specific country or region e.g. UK and Ireland, Spain and Portugal, Full Europe (UK, Eastern and Western Europe) (pictured right) and North America (USA, Canada and Mexico).

Garmin City Navigator maps come supplied on pre-programmed SD/microSD card and are not locked to single use within the Garmin GPSMAP 86. So if you also have a Garmin car sat nav and wish to use the road maps in your compatible Garmin sat nav device you can do so, just not at the same time.
