vector map for Garmin






The Himalaya map is the result of complex cartographic elaborations of public data, originally produced at a scale not suitable for GPS navigation. As a consequence, this map should be only used to get a rough idea on the surrounding  territory.



What’s new in Version 2


As the preceding version, Version 2.0 includes a vector gps map that can be used with most Garmin GPS units but, also, a raster map to be used with some Garmin units (eTrex 20-30, GPS  MAP 62, Montana, Oregon, Edge 800, Colorado and Dakota).


The raster map can also be installed in TwoNav Aventura GPS or used on PC with CompeGPS, OziExplorer and other GPS software, on request. As a consequence, the raster map can be transferred to many PDA devices running TwoNav or OziExplorerCE.


Height data are also provided for free, in order to get 3D views using the above mentioned software. It is also provided a peaks waypoint file in .gdb., .gpx and .wpt formats.


The raster map is composed of ten tiles named Q1..Q10. Each tile can be viewed at a scale of around 1:50.000. With CompeGPS, you can also load more tiles at the same time.


The tiles areas are shown in the following figure (click here to download the PDF):
