Garmin GPSMAP 66s/66st Maps


Do you own a Garmin GPSMAP 66s or Garmin GPSMAP 66st handheld GPS system? Perhaps you are you considering buying one? You need to read on to discover the optional Garmin maps you can buy from ActiveGPS to load into the Garmin GPSMAP 66st and view your outdoor adventures in a whole new detailed way. All mapping is supplied on easy to use pre-programmed microSD card.

As standard the Garmin GPSMAP 66s is preloaded with a basemap and has access to the Birdseye satellite imagery. While the Garmin GPSMAP 66st is preloaded with TopoActive European maps and also has access to the Birdseye satellite imagery.

In addition to the preloaded map options, further specific maps are also available for both models. These include;

TOPO map series - suited for walking, hiking, skiing, etc, these maps provide detailed contours and elevation along with extra rich information.

BlueChart g2 series - perfect for taking to coastal waters, these maps provide marine cartography charts.

City Navigator map series - ideal for drivng, these maps provide street-level detail.

GB Discoverer map series - a discontinued Garmin map range, however some titles are still available, providing OS maps.

All of the additional Garmin GPSMAP 66s and Garmin GPSMAP 66st compatible map series are supplied on plug-and-play microSD card within an SD card adaptor. This means that not only will they work with the Garmin GPSMAP 66s/66st, but also other Garmin compatible devices that take either a microSD or SD card. So for example if you purchase a City Navigator NT street-level map e.g. UK and Ireland, you can use it with your GPSMAP 66st handheld device and then use the same map in your Garmin nuvi car sat nav too, but just not at the same time!

Please note: When using any of the map SD/microSD cards purchased from ActiveGPS.co.uk they need to remain in your Garmin GPSMAP 66s/66st at all times so the map can be read and displayed on your units screen. The map SD card cannot be copied to either your Garmin GPSMAP 66st, PC or external hard drive. However the map SD card can be used in multiple compatible Garmin devices, but only one at a time. For further help with installing and loading Garmin SD/microSD cards, please see our Garmin map installation tips.
