Topo 2008 and 400T map placement


Followers 1

Recommended Posts

I searched and didn't find this.

 

I had my 400T out today and while driving around Denver I noticed the GPS had me 60-100 feet of the road. I switched to the new free 24K maps and the GPS was dead on with the road. I called Garmin and was told that there is a problem with the topo 2008 on the 400T. "The maps are accurate but the roads are not placed where they should be" I asked about a fix and was told that Garmin was not sure if it would be fixed or not.

 

Its a shame that the "Free" maps are more accurate with the road placement than the "professional ones.

 

I hope they do fix the road placement as I cant afford the city maps.

Can you describe the free 24k maps you mentioned in more detail? From what I can tell the only 24k Topo maps Garmin offers are the National Parks East/West series. What are the options for 24k topographic maps that cover areas other than just national parks and can be loaded onto a GPS like the Garmin Colorado?

I'm assuming - please let me know if I'm wrong - he is talking about the topo mapsets I created, specifically the CO one. The website for CO (and WY, UT) is:

MT, CA and AZ are currently being worked on by myself and others...

 

There's also an set for Canada:

There's also commercial versions for CO and WA - google for Above the Timber...

 

Hope that helps,

Hi, I believe that the maps are from NAVTEQ, so you should contact them. Might be why Garmin can't say if it would be fixed or not.

 

Go to http://mapreporter.navteq.com/ and fill out the information.

Yes I am, However the term "he" is probably an incorrect assessment. :unsure:

 

Thanks for the maps by the way. VERY nice.
