have the map that I am looking for. How can I get it?
our maps are drawn by hand by referencing the latest available
park maps. Cartography (the creation of maps) is a
tedious, time consuming process. If you want a map for a
park in or around the San Francisco Bay Area, you can contact
us, and suggest that we create the map. We will make our
best efforts to generate a map for your Garmin GPS unit in a
timely fashion. If you supply your email address, we can
let you know when the map is ready for you to order.
How do I get
the Map onto my GPS?
maps cannot be uploaded with Map Source (Garmins proprietary
upload software). You will need to download and install
free third party software to make the transfer. We
program, but there are a number of programs available for
uploading .img files to your GPS.
Why should I

Maps that you buy from Garmin can be very useful.
Unfortunately, the best maps for trails that are available from
Garmin are the 24K topo maps converted from USGS maps.
While the topo maps cover a large region, and have useful
topographical information on them, they don't often have park
trails, or trail names. Our maps can be very useful if you
are visiting a new park, and want to easily find your way
around. Rather than wonder where you are on the paper map,
the GPS map will always show your location relative to the
trails in each park. We recommend using our Garmin GPS
maps in conjunction with the free paper maps provided at each
park. Paper maps are still useful for route
planning. The GPS maps are very useful for determining
where you are relative to the rest of the
