Garmin GPSMAP 64st Questions and Answers
Question: I have anew Garmin GPSMAP 64st. I purchased a UK map from yourselves
recently and it works great. My question is can I switch between maps without taking the
SD card out in this unit? I use a topo map most of the time.
Answer: Yes, it is possible to switch between a map e.g. City Navigator on SD/microSD card and a preloaded map e.g. TOPO on the device. To do this you simply go into the GPSMAP 64st map menu and tick or untick maps as appropriate. Please refer to the instructions for further details.
Question: I would like some GPS mapping for my GARMIN GPSMAP 64st of the Alps for Ski Touring - however I do not really want to spend £120 on the whole of the Alps. I am specifically interested in Les Deux Alps (IGN Map 3336ET) - are you able to produce digital mapping as per the paper maps at a lower cost (i.e. per map)?
Answer: Unfortunately we are unable to produce TOPO mapping for a smaller area. We retail the maps that Garmin produce and Garmin themselves don't produce a map covering small individual areas of the Alps.
