    Garmin's website shows a City nav for Turkey and another for the Middle East - then it's either WorldMap or Wanderlust at www.smellybiker.com

    Jordan only recently started allowing the masses to ride motorcycles. It would be pretty cool to find some routes there.

    Smellybiker charges $50 for 12 months of maps. Not bad, but are there any other sources?

    I have ridden through this region, used mixture of garmin euro map with world base map and smelly biker, smelly bike although sounds like it should be good is next to useless, got many maps from http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ much better and up to date.
    Also had an issue with my Garmin 550, as the further south i went the gps positioning was about 100meters of correct position, sometimes i could be riding down a coast road and it showed me surfing !
    it still gives you an idea of direction and whats around etc so all is not lost, apart from me that is.
    check out my blog from the area https://www.travelblog.org/Bloggers/stu-dowell/.
    good luck and enjoy a great area...
