Garmin GPS Contour Map for Brittany, France
Download this zip file for a Garmin GPS
contour/topo map of Brittany, France. This can be previewed using Garmin's
MapSource program, then downloaded to your Garmin GPSr. The maps are
transparent, so if you download them together with a (e.g.,)
MetroGuide map, you'll see the contours and roads/towns on the GPSr
display at the same time.
Contours are displayed at 10, 50 and 250m intervals. The coverage
is from Le Havre in the East to Nantes in the South. This includes all
of Brittany and parts of Normandy and Loire.
I've tested this with MapSource version 6.9.1 and a Garmin etrex
Legend. The contour maps are generated from NASA SRTM
files. They have not been post-processed to remove voids, errors
and cGPSmapper were used to
create the Garmin .img files.
