Garmin Maps

Garmin sat navs and GPS systems are only as good as the map update you have loaded. Did you know Garmin update their City Navigator street-level road maps several times each year? You don't have to update at the same frequency, but updating at least every 2 years will ensure your sat nav maps aren't too out of date. Although not updated as frequently, maps such as the GB Discoverer, TOPO, Cycle and BlueChart provide specific map detail e.g. for hiking, cycling or for using on the coastal and offshore waters around the UK and Europe.
