- 5metre contour mapping for all of Australia
- Allows for the viewing of the contours on your computer, and allows transfer of waypoints, routes, and tracks between your Garmin GPS and computer
- Mapping displays simultaneously and overlaid on the GPS, with other Garmin mapping products
MapSolve Contains contours at 5m vertical intervals, that can be loaded to most Garmin mapping GPS. The mapping can displayed simultaneously, and overlayed with other Garmin mapping products when viewed on a Garmin GPS. This package includes licensed software that incorporates technology provided by Garmin.
This software allows for the viewing of maps from your computer. You can also transfer waypoints, routes, and tracks between your Garmin GPS and computer using this software.
For reference on a computer, the contours are displayed with an Australian base map, showing major roads, cities, train lines, and water bodies. This mapping product can be unlocked to one Garmin GPS unit.
This software is compatible with Windows OS only. A workaround for Mac iOS is available here.
Shows two seperate screens of the same area. The top right screen is a zoomed in version of the bottom left.
On Mapsource on a computer, contour lines are shown in varying thickness. 100 metre lines are thicker than 50 metre lines. Thin lines are individual 5 metre contours. You can envisage the steepness of the landform from this type of mapping. Unlike on the actual GPS, two Mapsource products (for example City Navigator and GPS TopoPLUS) cannot show on screen at the same time. You can switch between one map and the other.
