I once encountered a message of someone looking for a topographic maps for trips to exotic countries ", is because it is difficult to find these maps, routes in Europe because it is difficult/expensive to reach them and many times I just want to see the map in advance or just a destination to plan your itinerary in advance.

Not long ago I received a GARMIN GPS device and subsequently found a nice solution to this problem.

For GARMIN has 2 programs (Mapsource and Basecamp) that allow to upload maps and routes.

Both of these programs can be downloaded for free from GARMIN website and actually allow viewing topographic maps and route planning (even if no owner after that for GPS). You can find maps for free (free maps rather than prostitutes) on the Internet (or buy from GARMIN), recently I found a website that allows downloading of maps in good quality to very good (mainly in Europe), some maps include trails (just like a topographic map on paper) and certainly can be used to route planning.

The Basecamp you can download from here.
Maps to Basecamp can be found here. The map is exe file. And need to install it on your computer.

Enjoy!

Very interesting. Thanks for the Info!
Many times I thought about feasibility of GPS in planning and in orbit.
One day when I want to go on an adventure no trail is marked and remote area of acne.

How long enough battery of average.

What does that mean? That g.p.s. sequencer. This is the navigation and finding coordinates.
There isn't always a path.

The work my eTrex30 worked in France for three days (10-12 hours per day) on a pair of AA batteries. According to the manufacturer's declaration is supposed to work 25 hours straight on a pair of AA batteries

Mapsource and too the Grameen Basecamp provides free of charge and without any requirement to prove ownership of their device.

But you can navigate with a topographic map.
