Garmin’s new mapping offers all the benefits of traditional paper maps with the added bonus of intelligent street map 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.

Product Manager for Outdoor Andrew Silver commented: “The popularity of our GPS handheld devices in Ireland has led to the innovation of mapping with the familiar Ordnance Survey of Ireland platform.

“For the first time in the Republic of Ireland handheld GPS devices can display information from Ordnance Survey of Ireland maps whilst giving you all the benefits of a Garmin GPS system.”

Providing an extensive database of points of interest (POIs) and available either via download or on a convenient microSD™/SD™ card from the Garmin website, 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 of Ireland mapping and a Garmin handheld GPS provides a completely interactive experience.”

Hugh Mangan at Ordnance Survey of Ireland said: “Working in Partnership with Garmin to produce new topographic maps has added a new perspective to OSi 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.”

Garmin Eire Discoverer is expected to be available from mid November 2009. For more information on Garmin Eire Discoverer mapping and the Garmin range of handheld GPs products visit
