Garmin's new GPS III Plus offers cartographic capabilities
formerly found only in high-end automotive navigation and
marine chartplotting units. Simply plug it into a PC and
download an extra 1.44 MB of map data from Garmin's line
CD ROM's to give you instant detailed maps.
Whether you're cruising the streets or pounding the waves,
Garmin has the maps you need. Choose the U.S.
Roads and Recreation CD for city street level detail
and even inland marine features such as lake and river shorelines,
boat ramp and marina locations. Other CD's give you worldwide
coverage of coastlines, including a database of coastal
cities, navaids and inland roads.
Even without additional cartography, the basemap in the
GPS III Plus will get you where you're going. More than
10,000 new towns have been added to the permanent basemap,
as well as airport locations, secondary roads in metro areas
and even detailed exit information for the federal interstate
highway system, including information about available lodging,
food and service stations.
