    Only the competing OzTopo map includes 10m contours as a separate image. The only other commercial offering for Garmin I'm aware of is TopoPlus Aust 5m contours only (no map) through local GPS retailer but as the DEM from which it's derived is very coarse it's full of artifacts.

    Personally I prefer the 20m as good balance with less clutter for hilly area's. None of them are accurate, it's purely a visual thing.

    I have the full 'Contours Australia 5m' DVD.

    If anyone needs an area/district (*.img) then PM me and I will post it...

    Ok, I've got v5 at last but the file transfer speed to an Etrex 20 is as slow as the original download!

    G'day, I got Topo v5 up on my Nuvi 2797. Looks good with 3D shading!

    But I noticed when I select Topo v5, CN SENSIS & HERE are automatically deSellected!!! (Even OSM)

    NOT happy!!!!!!!!! I was hopping to use the other maps to provide auto-routing. (Like I do with ozTOPO V3)

    5m Contours & BlueChart Contours are OK.

    Although TOPO v5 has contour lines at 20m intervals, I believe the web site refers to 40m DEM.
