First off, I don't want discount the pain that others have obviously experienced but I run an unexceptional Vista system and TOPO loaded and unlocked without problems. Admittedly I've been there before with City Select and predecessors but I had not a single glitch. Of course it would have been different if the Garmin servers had been down but this was one of the smoothest Garmin installations ever.

The only increase in heartrate came, as always, when I couldn't find the coupon code. Garmin love to hide it - and yes I know it says where it's hidden in the bottom corner of the front of the packaging but hey, how about big red letters `THE COUPON CODE IS HIDDEN INSIDE THE PACKAGING, DUMMY'. I sympathise with the previous reviewer who ended up scrabbling about in the dustbin to find the packaging.

The maps are a disappointment, but then Garmin maps always are. The limitation on the display of TOPO maps in Mapsource to a little sub-window in the centre of the main map window (and no printing) is little short of scandalous. I can buy the whole of the UK in 1:50,000 for around £100 from Quo, see it at any scale, full-screen, and print out screens. From Garmin I can get a lame cut-down version for £130.

The only justification for buying TOPO is that it makes your hand-held a little more useful. You are never going to want plan routes with this, there simply isn't the detail. Its sole merit is that you get a bit of information in areas where other Garmin maps are simply blank.

Contours seem to be there in pretty full detail. It seems to be a bit better on river courses, where woods are shown they are better but they aren't all shown by any means. But if you're expecting something that feels like an OS map a little simplified, forget it.

I also wasted much time trying to install this software onto a Vista operating system before ending up on the Garmin website and going through unlock process number two. Believing I could then start to use the pacakage, I quickly needed to resort to using the "Help" functionality - to receive an error message stating that the "Help" functionality was not actually compatible with Vista and not available; no help then!
I had planned to use TOPO on the new Garmin 705 for mountain bike riding. The lack of detail in the mapping, such as rights of way, I believe makes it virtually impossible to pre-program a route to follow on the trail - especially important when one is looking to avoid trespass issues.
I returned both the 705 and the TOPO software to the retailer for a refund.
The 705 looked like a useful piece of kit. It's a shame I never got a chance to use it on the trail. The 705 would be useless "off road" without additional mapping, unfortunately TOPO just doesn't delivery.

Like other reviewers I had a terrible time installing this product. There are major incompatibility problems with windows Vista which although fixed with a patch from the Garmin web site mean that you have to go through the tortuous website registration process rather then use the installation wizard.

Once installed it's quite good. However, it's not like having a OS map available, really you need to have both when entering routes. It's very good in urban areas, showing even small roads but once you get out into the countryside it's not great. Contours are accurate and there is an attempt to show the kind of landscape (woods, marsh etc)which works quite well. Some paths are shown well, Cumbria seems particularly well represented but Berkshire is not. It's also hard to see the size of some things and exactly where the path goes (try following the towpath along the Kennet and Avon Canal for instance).

Would I recommend this? Well if you have a mapping GPS such as the GPSMAP60 then yes, it's a useful addition to the mapping that comes with it. But before you make the final decision, have a look at the Garmin website. There is a fully functional demo of the map. The real thing is very similar. If it shows what you want to see then go for it.

Personally I do use it quite a lot but I still use Oziexplorer just as much too.

The OS tie in was what helped sell me on the idea of this product. Afterall OS maps are the definitive maps for the uk, so good, even the army works to OS maps.

These maps are to go in a handheld garmin thats used by the likes of walkers, geocachers and other outdoorsy types. So you should be expecting nicely detailed maps that cover the huge networks of public footpaths across the UK? NO!

You get the contour lines, and most roads, but footpaths not a chance. Which is why my title sums up my feelings about this product in one word. If the networks of footpaths were in there, then this would be a bargain for the money. But software to go in an outdoor activity GPSr, that misses out the footpaths is just a wasted opertunity, and far too expensive for what info you do get.

Next time, try harder Garmin!

As with most other people I too experienced the same problems when trying to register the software using a pc with windows Vista. What you need to do is this: 1) Go to garmin.com and register your gps. 2) Install the software (give the registration wizard a go, but it most likley will; not work!) 3) Go to garmin and then go through the following menus: Support - Updates and Downloads - Mapping Programs. 4) Download and install the most recent update for Mapsource (it is about 48Mb) 5) once this is done, lauch mapsource and go to Utilities and manage map products 6) Highlight topo great britain and click register online 7) the next stage is to go through the steps on the screen. N.B. if your GPS is not found look at the right hand top corner of the web page and you will see that you need to download a communication plug in. Do this and then go back to step 6. 7) Once you have been successful, your 25 digit code shoudl be displayed on the web page. If it is not, log into garmin (using the details used to register your gps) go to manage my maps and you should find it in there. 8) Armed with this code, and ensuring that the software is closed, go to start - programs - garmin and run the unlock wizard. Select the option - something like "I have a 25 digit code" follow the steps and it should work. Good luck!!! As far as the software goes, not sure yet as I have only just managed to get the thing to register!!!
