    Righto, now the penny has dropped. I thought the question was a little 'noobish' from you the way it sounded. Sorry. If i wasn't so far into my dl limit with my ISP i'd happily test it, but my comments are valid. If it has raster content [and some topos do] then that component won't work with any nuvi such as your 13xx and 3490. Nuvis are not in the compatible devices list so therefore i assumed it must not be a purely vector map as with some Topo. I'm aware of it's Garmap roots which i believe was a vector map, as you said, and was issued in both NT & Non-NT, but i don't have that either.

    Well - my 42 is delirious with it - able to search for addresses etc with no problem too so I don’t know what the supposed issue is. (While Mapsource can see it its not searchable there though)

    Hi,

    Topo South Africa Pro 2013 is not a rastermap : it can be displayed on my Etrex vista HCx.

    Most Topos are just vector maps.
    Only a few countries have raster maps (most of them only cover National parks or popular hiking areas):

    - Topo Switzerland (50k and 25k full coverage)
    - Alpenvereinskarten
    - Wanderatlas Tirol
    - Great Britain (50k full coverage and 25k Parks and Trails)
    - Ireland (50k full coverage)
    - Northern Ireland (50k full coverage)
    - Editorial Alpina maps of Spain (only a few National parks)

    Mapperoni, you are surely the best qualified to answer this. Can topo maps have some raster imagery content for display at certain zoom levels and that's why they are not listed as compatible with nuvis? If that's not the reason, why does Garmin state that the purely vector topos are not compatible?

    Neil, as far as I know most Topo maps only contain conventional vector maps, the latest are all in NT format. As an old-fashioned Garmin user I am still addicted to Mapsource and as you know Mapsource can't handle raster maps. Well, untill now I can open all EU and US Topos in Mapsource except the ones I listed above. The maps look exactly the same as they do in Basecamp. Raster maps are quickly recognised because they don't scale like vector maps.

    The reason that some Nuvis can't handle them must have other reasons. I suspect DEM and TYP definitions play a role in this. For instance, Topo France looks awfull on my Nuvi 2595LMT, some polygons render black. Garmin invented the 3-byte-types to address the amount of different lines, polygons and POI needed in modern Topos, some Nuvis don't seem to render them correctly.
