    Default Need Help with Acronyms

    The answer to this question is probably obvious but I can't seem to find the definitions or figure them out intuitively. In the title Garmin Worldwide Autoroute DEM Basemap NR 5.00, what do the acronyms DEM and NR stand for?

    Thanks for any insight.

    DEM is...
    Digital Elevation Model

    NR....
    maybe No Restriction or Not Restricted because it is unlocked/not a retail map???

    Interesting... good to know. My guess for NR was maybe Non-Routable(?) but I don't know enough about Garmin maps to know if it made any sense though. Thanks for your input though, at least now I know what DEM means.

    I'd tend to agree that it's more likely Non-Routable

    No, this is Autoroute map. It contains routing data.
    Thanks, Kanopus
