This package contains a GARMIN MapSource(R) compatible map for the central area
GARMIN currently only releases English maps for Japan on its Mapsource "WorldMap".
However, because this also covers the entire world on a single CD the detail and
accuracy is low for Japan.
Therefore, this is more detailed map, for the central area of Japan,
in English to help people who would find it difficult to use the Mapsource Japan
series that are all in Japanese.
These maps cover the central area of Japan.
Especially, Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures.
Expressways, major roads, major railways and stations, rivers, parks, etc., are
included. Points of Interest(POI) information, such as Halls, Landmarks, Subway
entrances, Hotels, Museums, etc., are also included.
