Global leader in personal satellite navigation Garmin is proud to announce the launch of a new series of the award winning Garmin GB Discoverer topographic maps.
These revolutionary new maps bring outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to view a wider variety of highly detailed mapping from the Ordnance Survey Landranger map series, whilst navigating with turn-by-turn accuracy.
Users can now benefit from full 1:50K scale Ordnance Survey Landranger map coverage for the whole of Great Britain. Garmin GB Discoverer Great Britain is available in three large regions – Southern England & Wales, Northern England & Midlands and Scotland.
Garmin GB Discoverer allows users of the Dakota, Oregon and Colorado handhelds to experience using raster mapping with the intelligence of vector cartography, providing navigation with ease and accuracy.
Garmin’s new mapping offers all the benefits of traditional paper maps with the added bonus of intelligent routing and interactive points of interest. Use the Garmin touchscreen GPS to search, select and navigate to street addresses and attractions, follow routes on foot, in car or by bike all using the familiar Ordnance Survey platform .
Product Manager for Outdoor Andrew Silver commented: “The popularity of our Garmin GB Discoverer National Parks and Trails series has led to the production of three UK mainland maps – Scotland, Northern England & Midlands and Southern England & Wales.
“For the first time ever handheld GPS devices can display information from Ordnance Survey Landranger maps whilst giving you all the benefits of a Garmin GPS system.”
Providing an extensive database of points of interest (POIs) and available on a convenient microSD/SD card, you can simply insert the maps into Dakota, Oregon and Colorado devices and go.
Andrew added: “From placing the handheld in your car and using it to navigate to your chosen destination, to exploring footpaths and discovering your nearest camp site or restaurant, the combination of Ordnance Survey mapping and a Garmin handheld GPS provides a completely interactive experience.”
Paula Langford-Smith, Marketing Manager at Ordnance Survey said: “Working in Partnership with Garmin to produce new topographic maps has added a new perspective to OS Landranger Maps – the accuracy and detail from our most popular mapping is now provided with a GPS companion, helping you get a completely new and interactive map reading experience.”
If you purchase a Dakota 20 in store, you get 50% off of any GB Discoverer 1:50K mapping card! For more information on Garmin GB Discoverer mapping visit www.garmin.co.uk
