    I thought this link would be interesting for many of you, I bought the map from these guys and it has worked very good for me, they now have a web page in English with shoping cart and technical support for the maps.

    How much detail is there of the Baja? I want to travel down there in March and I would like a GPS set of maps loaded into a 60CS.

    i use it on my 60CSX and tested it a little last weekend. It was pretty accurate. On 2/14 I am headed to Matomi wash (san felipe area) and will test it further.

    I have it loaded on my 276c with a 512mb card along with the bicimapas and mexico atlas 2009 and toggling back and forth this map tops all of them in off road accuracy. many fire roads and trails not visible on other maps are right in there. i tested from Valle de Guadalupe to Ojos Negros via Necua(old baja 500/100 route and the towards El Rayo and forked to regular traisl leading to Valle T, Mikes and finally Rancho El Coyote and again pinpoint accuracy

    Omar's software ace'd this gps software for all of us hardcore baja and mainland off roaders. I have a relative that tried it from Guadalajara to Puerto Vallarta and again high regards .

    I found it very accurate on my CC trip in November. Took the "bad" road from Aqua Prieta to Huachinera (bypassing Janos) and it was spot on. One thing that was confusing was that the highways in some places are numbered differently than the actual highway numbers in the signs on the side of the road. Otherwise, with my limted use of these maps, so far i was impressed with the accuracy, but I have nothing else to compare them to.

    A friend and I are are doing the copper canyon -ferry ride to LaPaz -baja loop in a couple of weeks both of us have 60csx's. I am running the E32 2009 maps, my Friend has the Bicimapas. Just looking at them at home the maps are the same or very nearly so. The difference seems to be in the verbage. By the end of April we should be able to post a pretty accurate side by side comparision

    I have both....we only use Tracks for our tours so E32 is a good option as it has more Brecha (small dirt roads).

    If you need routing then Bicimapas is quite good although we have experienced many gaps in the routing data so you need to be checking your auto-routing and not just take it for granted that it routed properly or the "best" way.

    I use both. E32 is not routable, but it does show more double track and single track trails.

They have redesigned their Web Page and it looks a lot more ENGLISH friendly and it even has some sections specifically for the BAJA and COPPER CANYON area as well as REVIEWS and SUPPORT,

    I UPGRADED THE MAP-SETS FOR BOTH GARMIN GP'S THAT I HAD PREVIOUS VERSION 2010 LOADED
    I RECEIVED E-MAIL FROM OMAR AND IMMEDIATELY JUMPED AT MY OPPORTUNITY FOR UPGRADE.
    IT IS WORTH UPGRADING. AGAIN QUALITY OF MEXICO MAP-SET CANNOT BE COMPARED TO ANYTHING THAT IS OUT ON THE MARKET. HIS COMPANY DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB.
    TRULY A 21ST CENTURY MUST HAVE TOOL FOR NAVIGATING MEXICO.
    :freaky
    NOW I HAVE AN EXCUSE FROM MY WIFE TO TAKE A SIDE TRIP DOWN IN BAJA.

    Here is the latest and most up to date Mexico Topo Map July 2012 and it is also a Mexico GPS Map with turn by turn direction in English and Spanish

    Added 20 meter (60 feet) contours for the full country
    · Added a full new hydrology data set. Now the river outlines have a very high precision and we increased the coverage in all the country.
    · About 550,000 new points of interest of which 200,000 are natural ones to support better off road navigation. The remainder are increased urban POIs.
