    City Xplorer -Special Map That Supports Public Transport (Enhanced Pedestrian mode) - Suitable for Walking - BUS - Train (When you visit a City as a Tourist)
    City Navigator - General purpose Map for Driving - Cycling - and Walking (No Enhanced Pedestrian Mode) (Doe's Not Support Public Transport)
    StreetMaps - Same as City Navigator - Garmap used the Name Streetmaps in South Africa.
    TOPO Topographical maps have elevation contours in the Map can be combined with Recreational MAPS for Hiking, Cycling, Adventure. Sometimes called TOPO & REC
    Bluechart is for Navigating the OCEAN by Ship or Boat or Yacht (I wish!!).
