    Free Italy Mountains Custom Maps -kmz format



    bn meridiani montagne


    Download maps of Meridiani Montagne developed by Garmin for your GPS!
    Garmin and Meridiani Mountains, the most important editorial magazine on the mountain and alpine culture, have decided to give all fans a unique opportunity. The bimonthly magazine provides a map of the most beautiful mountain areas of Italy, with paths, shelters, and all relevant information to the hiker.
    Garmin, using the "Custom Maps", turns a selected portion of the map in a file ready for immediate use in your Garmin GPS for the outdoor, free download.


    The Alps of Bonatti

    Sarca Valley

    Dauphiné Ecrins

    Dolomites - Alta Via No. 1

    Alpi Occitane


    Custom Maps are compatible with the following GPS devices:
    • Dakota 10 to 20
    • Oregon 300 - 400 - 450 - 450t - 550 - 550t
    • Colorado 300
    • GPSMAP 62 - 62S - 62St
    • GPSmap 78 - 78S
    • Edge 800

    INSTRUCTIONS FOR LOADING CUSTOM MAPS ON TOOLS
    1. Download the file by clicking on the link
    2. Using the USB cable, connect your Garmin GPS to your computer
    3. Using "Windows Explorer", the GPS displays folders
    4. Create a folder called "CustomMaps" inside the folder "Garmin" GPS (if you use the Custom Maps, you'll have the folder "CustomMaps", then you can skip this step)
    5. Copy the contents of KMZ file of the Custom Map in the ZIP file you downloaded in step 1 folder
    6. Disconnect the GPS from your PC and turn it on: your Custom Map is already active and ready to use!

    Hi !

    Download one of the four .kmz above and import it in Basecamp. It is really funny !

    Superimposed on trekmap Italia vector map, raster .kmz map shows a position shifting up to 100 m for roads or paths, due to a bad calibration. I understand now why those maps are free.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Compare for example the orange triangle ( .kmz raster map) and the red one inside (trekmap Italia). Map scale is 150 m !

    I get also trouble creating french raster maps, but the worst position shifting does not overtake 40 m. French cartography must be better than Italian one.
