Free Australian Maps for Garmin GPS
It’s not often you find free maps, but a very clever guy nicknamed Shonky Logic decided to create maps that Garmin hadn’t considered for Australia. Australia is famous the world over for its vast tracks and ancient landscape, something many Aussies find they need to be a part of by hopping in a 4×4, biking, walking or caravanning and visiting. However, the Australian outback is not a place you want to miss out on, something many visitors and tourists find they don’t pay attention to to make sure they have enough essentials such as water, food and communication. Just like any other remote location, it’s always good to let people know your itinerary so that if they don’t hear from you at a specific time, it’s much easier to find you across the thousands of square miles of land than anyone else. visits
GPS has exploded in the recreational market, it is the fastest growing technology worldwide. You find it on your watch, shoes, mobile phone (Cellular), Emergency Beacon (EPIRB), planes, trains and cars. Every day, without realizing it, you will have come across GPS and, fortunately, many people have realized the benefits of these small devices in circumstances where there are often no tracks or roads, perhaps a river, a strange rock or tree, and maybe even a Kangaroo!
Garmin is probably the largest manufacturer of recreational GPS in the world, but they are still developing maps for the world. However, the Australians could not wait any longer and thus the development of Shonky Maps arose. The term or name of the maps is not exact because there is nothing false about it. The map is based on Geoscience Australia (GA) Natmap raster maps, and GA is the Australian Federal Mapping Agency. Original maps are designed to work with products like OziExplorer, TrackRanger and many more similar products. However, Natmaps would not work on Garmin GPS until now.
If you’re looking for free maps of Australia for your Garmin that are packed with detail, including highways, major roads, rivers, tracks, and much more, you should purchase a copy of this map.
