Here's another reason to toss out those paper maps: the
eMap. It's the size of a small, flat calculator, contains
a 12 parallel channel GPS receiver, and weighs a mere six
ounces. Even with its compact style, the eMap boasts an
extra-large display for showing even more map data and the
same power you've come to expect from Garmin handheldseven
while operating for up to 12 hours on just two AA batteries.
The eMap features an internal basemap containing information
on North and South America including state and country boundaries,
lakes, rivers, streams, airports, cities, towns, coastlines,
and U.S., state, and interstate highways. In addition, the
eMap provides exit information for the federal interstate
highway system. With the eMap, you will know when you are
near services such as food, lodging, and service stations.
The eMap is compatible with Garmin's complete line of downloadable
CD-ROMs including U.S. Roads and Recreation, WorldMap, U.S.
Topo, and MetroGuide® U.S.A. When paired with the MetroGuide
U.S.A. CD-ROM, the eMap has the ability to look up address
and telephone number information for nearby services and
points of interest. The eMAP will store eight or 16 megabytes
of downloaded CD-ROM information at a time depending on
the size of the cartridge you use in the unit.
Designed with everyone in mind, this unit will take you
from the car, to the hiking trail, to the beach without
missing a beat.
