Do anybody know of map software for Chile and Argentina that is compatible with Garmin GPS units?
Can somebody tell me what the coverage is ? (I don't speak spanish)
This map (Patagonia4x4) cover all the Cono Sur, this is part of Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, Bolivia and Uruguay.
This map is building by the users, ervery one send his/her waypoints and tracks.
For me is the best general map in this area, but is not complete. Every day is better. They annouced a big update in next days. Buenos Aires is very well detailed, bur only have 1/5 of Santiago.
Another option but only for Chile is a commercial map from www.gpschile.cl that is very good in street level but not so good in roads.
The Wordmap of Garmin is incredible bad, is not a option.
Thanks Guys! I appreciate the help. I'll check out the Patagonia 4x4. GPSChile didn't respond to emails. And yep, WorldMap sucks. Thanks, y'all!
Goes from 10 degrees south latitude to Tierra Del Fuego
Seems they have taken the WorldMap and then overlaid more detail overtop where they have it.
Just under 9 MB for the full map
You need to register, then a username/password is sent to you.
Download a setup program which pulls down the maps and adds a mapset called CONOSUR into Mapsource.
Don't tell me you're going to south America.
The Patagonia 4x4 files rock!
A long way to go on a scooter
Sorry, Patagonia4x4 was the host for the Proyecto Coñosur a free project created in Argentina to develop GPS compatible cartography for South America. As such it receives collaborations from anyone interested in adding to such effort, which are later compiled and made available for free download. Now the project has a little break, the guy who compiled made his own Web site trying to make money with that.
A new Project start whit the same community from the first one but now we are nearly 4000 people.
The new cartography it superb Proyecto Mapear and already is an English interface http://www.proyectomapear.com.ar/index.php?newlang=english
I´m collaborating with both, Proyecto mapear and Patagonia 4x4, and both have advantages and disadvantages. For example Patagonia publish updates continuously, then you have the last information.
Inside cities out of Argentina Proyecto Mapear is street level detailed, Patagonia not.
I have both installed and for city level navigation I use Proyecto Mapear, but for the route I prefer Patagonia.
Try a program called Ozi explorer..I use this for work/fun all of the time. Should be able to dig up some free mapping online
Garmins 'World Map' looks to me to be VMAP0 ... and that is freely avaliable off the net .. bit tedious to download as 'they' only let you do little bits at a time .. and you cannot automate the downloads .. but 'they' do have some (limited areas) data with more detail ... so I don't think copywrite is broken .. well not too much ?
Looks like a similar process to 'Tracks 4 Africa' and Tracks 4 Australia'.
Maybe someone will do a Tracks 4 North America ... and a Tracks 4 Europe .. Asia ...
Frank, haven't heard from you for a while
Have you started the big trip yet ?
English? Donde' esta?
There will be a slight delay while the lemon scented napkins are delivered .. mean while ...
Forks legs pitted .. will damage fork seals .. replated .. now flaking .. sounds of .... %#^$^*(&
This one is great! I am currently down here working in Buenos Aires and loaded this onto my E-Trex Vista. It sure helped me. I thought I was gonna be stuck with the lousy Garmin basemap. What a surprise to find this.
Too bad all I have to drive is a cage!
SO how do I load this mapear software onto my NavII? It takes a compact flash 2 GB card... The mapear info is already in my mapsource.
Select the parts that you wont to upload to the GPS whit the Tool: Map then click Send to GPS thats all.
The new V3 version have some problems to work well with the Nuvi but only on the Auto routing function, I believe
For sure more details on the Mapear forum or if you have troubles you can ask there.
Ahhh la otra vez me dejaste haciendo la pera, el mate se enfrió y las birras se la tomaron otros. Espero nos encontremos pronto....
Uyyy, si. Sorry, pero me volvi para Los Angeles. Esta semana embarco la moto para Santiago y de ahi para BsAs. Nos vemos pronto!!
