I read on another site ( http://gpsinformation.net/mgoldreview/magellanbasemap.htm) that the basemaps will be user selectable on all Meridian models.

"The user can select sections (areas) of the World Map and have these loaded into his GPS map memory to be used by the GPS as a basemap. These maps from WorldMap will NOT replace the permanent basemap. They will however, be displayed on the screen IN PREFERENCE to the built in basemap for any areas where World Map is loaded."

Is this true?

Cannot see any information regarding this on Magellan web site.

Thanks.

The Magellan Meridian range is supplied with a base map, that is one which carries very basic information like Coastlines, Major roads, railways and cities. This base map is usually related to the area in which the GPS is sold. Magellan also supply Mapsend Worldwide Basemap which has to be purchased separately and is used in conjuction with an SD media card that can be loaded into the Meridian range and used for any area chosen. This base map gives more detailed information and some Topographics.
I find that it is best to use the GPS alongside a hardcopy topographical map for the area I am in, to rely solely on the GPS when hillwalking may be too risky.
