OS Maps on GPSrs


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I am looking into the possibility of getting a GPSr with mapping capability. Initial investigations suggest that not all of them can handle OS maps.

 

Can anyone either tell me which can, or point me to a resource with this information?

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

 

You could look here: 3rd October see post 10.

Thanks - I had seen that (and the post was what prompted my question, which I should have put in that thread I suppose), but I was hoping there might be a cheaper option!

Have you considered a PDA with integrated (or Bluetooth) GPS? Then there'd be no problem running Memory Map/Fugawi/whatever, and you're not tied in to the features supplied by the GPS manufacturer.

Yes - that is a possibility. Only problem - they don't survive drops as much as my trusted 12 does! :huh::)

There is currently a way of displaying OS Maps on Garmin mapping GPSr's using Moagu: I had a go but found the instructions a bit difficult to follow. If any has succeeded in doing this, please let me know!

Looks interesting, but does anyone know how to produce GeoTiff images from Memory Map?
