GPS Maps for Iran and Turkey???
 
Hi Guys,

My Dad and I are travelling from Liverpool, England to Turkey and Iran and were wondering if there were any maps available to download..(I have a garmin zumo 550)

Your help is much appreciated.

Do you have an Iranian visa? Hard to get with a Canadian passport. I have some tracks from Iran but not on this computer.

Theres a few pages out there that detail, how to compile your own TOPO maps using UN world data lists.
If I get a chance this week, I'll see if I can find the pages that detail how to do it.

PM me an email address and I can send you my Iran .gdb files

Woohoo
 
Thanks Guys...If you could help me get those maps up and running it would be of great help!

Zecatfish: If you could find that page, that would be awesome :)

I"M SO EXCITED!! WOOOO! Shipping the bike out from Toronto to Liverpool this thursday.

We'll begin our adventure (hopefully) on the 23rd of June. Look out for our ride report!

Part 1:
Starting in England and then going to make our way over to France, cut through spain and coast along the Mediterranean (Southern France). Go through Italy to a port city called Bari and catch a ferrry over to Greece, and finally ride through Turkey to Iran.

Part 2:
On our way back, we hope to go through Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Czeque Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Back to England.

I know it sounds like a lot but we have a ton of time to kill (60 days to be exact). The largest time spent will probably be spent in Iran as we have family there. Crating the bike tomrrow! I'll upload pics asap. Maybe I'll start the ride report along with it..

See my section on Iran: www.nohorizons.net
LOADS to see there. Esfhan was by far one of the nicest cities I've ever seen.

Thanks Malindi.
Funny thing my ancestors come from Esfahan!
Can't wait to go there for the first time.
