    Garmin 62s Map

    Would anyone know what is the best detail map for the Kaimanawa's for a Garmin 62s and where is a good place to get one at the best price?

    Thanks in advance.

    Mr Purples maps are not bad, they are free to download.

    Topo Maps For Garmin GPS

    scroll down towards the bottom.

    You use to be able to downolad a kmz file off topomap.co.nz and then install on to the 62s. Go to the more function at top of page. You can then download the mapsheet as a kmz file. Copy it to the GPS and then install. But you can only install/open one sheet at a time because of the number of images in the map sheet.
    You can combine two or more sheets, but it is a bit of stuffing around.
