Maps To Store In A Garmin 60cs

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine wants to travel to Australia with a 60 CS.

As I know there is a 56 MB data memory for maps in the GPS receiver.

Is this enough to store a complete map of Australia? What are your experience? What map would you recommend? He is not a geocacher but wants to know where he is and wants to see the track when he will be back in Germany.


Thanks for help.

to quote AGSMKY from http://forum.geocaching.com.au/



Most new GPSrs have more than adequate memory these days due to the fact map data is in a vector format......


The GPSMAP60 C/S has 54mb from memory......Metroguide Australia takes up ~44mb, for the whole of Australia  ....... I have also Bluecharts (marine charts) for Townsville to below Rockhampton which only takes up 4 mb.....


If you want to look at the quality of the Metroguide Australia, take a look at http://www.garmin.com/cartography/ and select the MA from the Mapsource Map Viewer area.......


BTW there is also City Navigator for sydney, melboune etc however i haven't played with them


Hope this helps
