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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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!
