Question Garmin 2160 maps (small roads)

Does anyone have the maps from Garmin (assuming they make the maps) that would show off-road courses, jeep trails, single-track and such? This is only for owners of the 2160 (or close cousins) GPS...
Thanks!

Eek Not a copy

I am not posting this to get a COPY I just want to know if the Recreational maps work with this GPS... If someone wanted to send a copy for scientific/research purposes - that would be ok :-)

The standard mapset, 'City Navigator' has alot of backroads, trails, and goatpaths on it. Nener 100% perfect or complete, but good coverage nonetheless. I have heard that the now discontinued product 'Roads and Recreation' is a bit better in the woods, can't comment myself. Never had a need for something better.

I think roads and rec is what you want...discontinued product. Check Garmin site for compatability. Has more FSR, state road and trail and detail than alternative map sets. - bdagw

I find the City Navigator (I have the V5 version) leaves alot to be desired in the backwoods type places. I would like to have more info on the less traveled Forest roads. Is the "Topo" series of maps the replacement for the "Roads and Recreation" series? Are they any good?

Also, how does this stuff work on the GPS? Is it just loaded in on top of the City Navigator maps, and when you zoom in the detail of the Topo maps becomes visible?

Not sure what is the scale on the R&R but Topo is 1:100.000
pretty cool. They have all the trails around where I ride. R&R doesn't.

Garmin has now a 24k which is 1:24.000 scale. I have never seen these.

As far as loading multiple maps for the same area, if you go to some maps setting on the unit, you'll be able to "enable" or "disable" one or the other.
You can choose which one to display. Not sure which is the default in that case.

I would contact Garmin - the 24K and Topo US will probably run on a 2610, alot of there maps will work on different platforms, but they are conservative on their website - give them a call.

I use an old copy I have of Metroguide (pre Navteq) - it has cow paths, the name of ever knob, pass etc. - pretty cool.
