    Thank you very much catymag & GPSPower friend!

    Not sure why on Ordnance Survey's site the compatible devices list is so small... (first link provided)

    On Garmin's site you can find a bigger list (second link provided)

    Some info behind HERE and NAVTEQ.

    Navteq (styled as 'NAVTEQ') was an American Chicago-based provider of geographic information system (GIS) data and a major provider of base electronic navigable maps. The company was acquired by Nokia in 2007/2008, and fully merged into Nokia in 2011 to form part of the Here business unit.

    Not all devices support rastermaps, that's why.

    By the way, thanks for these great maps again, you made may day Caty and our GPSPower friend!

    Yes I agree with you, nevertheless my old and trusty eTrex 30 isn't included on the list provided by Ordnance Survey and it has been working with Raster Maps since I bought it years ago.

    And according to hterag:

    So, from that point of view the list isn't complete.

    But there is a catch*... I haven't used this map so far, therefore I can't confirm specifically for this Raster.

    If you look on the Garmin site for this map and click compaible devices tab, it lists the eTrex30 as compatible

    Hi,

    It looks as if Garmin wanted to save money : obviously a 16 Go microSD card is less expensive than a 32 Go.

    So it's more profitable to install all GB Maps on a 16 Go card than on a 32 Go.

    But unfortunatly, this is achieved at the expense of map resolution : GB discoverer 25K v4 maps are far better than those GB Discoverer Ordnance Survey !

    From my point of view, I think the excuse/response from Garmin-HERE would be: "it is because some devices can't stand high quality images (raster maps)". When I said "can't stand" I mean, the speed to read and show the map on you device screen.

    Personally I like to watch raster maps to plan a route on basecamp, but for real-life hiking and mainly biking I use vector maps because of the fast navigation through the map.

    I don't have experience with a top handheld like a GPSMAP 64 or one of those with big touch screens, so I don't know if those devices can navigate fast and smoothly in real life (with raster maps).

    ***Nevertheless, those raster maps are too expensive to have that poor image quality.

    10 years ago I loved raster maps in combination with OziExplorer CE on my Pocket PC. There was no other choice because for most European countries Garmin (vector)-topo maps didn't yet exist. On my first eTrex Vista I could load a few map-tiles on the 24MB internal memory and see some black lines on the screen representing Garmin's Metroguide maps. Good old times....
    I still love raster maps but mainly to be viewed on a HD monitor, on my Oregon 600 I highly prefer vector topo's for a few obvious reasons:


    • Fast rendering
    • Great quality of detail nowadays
    • Multiple map-layers with different detail
    • It's sheer sharpness at all zoomlevels
    • Amount of data is much smaller
    • No ugly artefacts like we see on several raster maps, caused by too much jpg-compression
    • Possibility to create your own map representation by adapting the typ file. In my opinion one of the greatest improvements Garmin created for us but for some strange reason they never made an editor available themselves. Complete silence on Garmin's side!
    • Possibility to see two or even more maps at once by using transparancy
    • A lot of extra functions like autorouting, even on the smallest trail
    • Searchability is better


    It's obvious that my opinion about raster maps has changed drastically this last decade in favor of vector maps.
