    You mean the Garmin product 'City navigator" ?

    You can find informationt on Garmins web site
    http://www.garmin.com/cartography/

    But it contains little for all of Turkey. Possibly there are maps avalible elsewhere but Garmin doe not list them - evewn on their third party providers page ... http://www.garmin.com/cartography/mpc/

    (If you have already done the above ... why did you not say so and include all the infoirmation in your post?)

    Hi,

    Garmin Turkey is about to publish a detailed city map shortly. I have the beta version of it and works great. It will sell for 50 Euro + VAT. You can buy it from Turkish dealer any time. They'll load it into your GPS, and send you the CD once it is ready for shipment...

    Regards

    About to travel to Turkey May 3rd, Cappadocia and the emerald coast, any dealer you recommend in Istanbul to buy the Turkey map, and have it installed.... Installed is the key, the laptop died... and I am going Mac, tired of windows.

    Cheers

    Don't worry it will do the job on the way.With less POIs but it is ok.
    Glad to hear that you have contacted ADVtrav.
    Let me know as soon as you have entered Turkiye from İpsala Border.I'll order your meatballs in Tekirdağ.May too early for me to take the tour.

    I have seen this site but it is in spanish so I dont really understand the procedure of these image files to gpas maps! For the zumo model its a little bit different than my Garmin 276C I think that you have to install the maps in the card first and an exe file in there and then you insert the crd to your GPS or something like that but I am not sure because I dont have an acces to a model like that !!! The best map for Greece is TopoNavigator by Anavasi
    http://www.anavasi.gr/en/gpsp.php?id=24
    I am pretty sure that you can find it as torrent file with Keygen with it to break it loose so you can install it on your zummo!
    Thats how I found the map for Turkey 7.10 its not the latest version but I think it will be ok for my future trip to Turkey.
    The more info I find about the "next door country" the more I love it !
    By the way "venturer" you said that you find the map ok???
    Do you have this map on your GPS?

    Which is the version you have on your GPS? is there many Versions after 7.10? I may find a newer one ! I will search for more torrents for a better version. I have ordered the Lonely Planet Book for Turkey which is very helpfull but I believe its better to ask the locals for places to visit, stay & eat they know better! By the way what is your plan for the trip to Black sea coast line?

    2008/4 writes on it.7.10 refers to mapsource zakou.In Turkish forums I have some rider fellows and they offered to give me their routes.We'll see that.
    I don't know much about Black Sea.It wouldn't be a venture if I knew.
    My target is to start from Şile and end at Turkish-Georgian border.As I told before,I can't come in May.There are some fellows from here(4 so far,you inluded) and 1 from another forum.We'll discuss all in spring.
    Follow me Zakou in July.This is advice to you:)
