In the last 7 days Garmin have launched a new map card, TOPO Great Britain PRO. This has replaced the Garmin Discoverer Premium map product. The map card still has Ordnance Survey (OS) 1:25,000, 1:50,000 and 1:250,000 scale maps for all of Great Britain so what has changed?
For the first time on a GPS device this map card now gives you on-trail guidance (turn by turn routing) of the OS Detailed Path Network. This is not for all of Great Britain but for the 32,000 km of paths and trails in all British National Parks.
Within all British National Parks, OS Detailed Path Network, powering on-trail turn-by-turn guidance for customized routes for pedestrian and cycling activity profiles, therefore the data in the mapping will enable your GPS to guide you down the relevant bridleway or footpath according to your chosen activity
It also offers thousands of different, searchable destination choices, with more than 570,000 searchable addresses and points of interest, including lodging, restaurants, car parks, banks, petrol stations, attractions, camp sites and more
Provides 3-D view and elevation shading on compatible devices so you can estimate terrain difficulty
Includes Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for route profile planning
ActiveRouting routable paths and trails are available for the following National Parks:
- Brecon Beacons
- Lake District
- Loch Lomond & The Trossachs
- New Forest
- Norfolk and Suffolk Broads
- North Yorkshire Moors
- Peak District
- Pembrokeshire Coast
- South Downs
- Yorkshire Dales
For other parts of Great Britain you get 1:250k, 1:50k and 1:25k and of the Isle of Man at 1:25k. This is not routable (i.e. no turn by turn outing) off road but you still get the option to route via roads (as with the 1:50k map card).
A great addition to the mapping available for a Garmin GPS.
