Do Garmin do a UK Topographic MapSource?

I have not been able to find one on their site so I assume they don't do one?!



What I was after was more detail in places like the Brecon Beacons so I can see the high points and the gradient lines.



Anyone have any ideas?



Cheers

They do a Topographic MapSource, but only currently for the US which is a real pain. I'd like to see a topo map myself.

Yeah I saw the US ones were available and was a bit miffed when I couldn't find the UK one... any idea if they are working on one for the future?

Thanks to the Ordnance Survey's monopoly on such digital map data this is unlikely. The fact that it is gathered using tax payer funding is another matter

Not that it makes much use, but there will soon be a Topo UK product for Magellan GPS Receivers. I suspect this will not be using OS, but another company, although no matter what you do in the UK, somewhere, somehow it all feeds back to OS.
