    Red face CityXplorer maps sale discontinued by Garmin

    Probably cityXplorer maps dropped by Garmin

    Recently Garmin hasn't updated cityXplorer maps.
    New nuvis dont support them since 2013 models, no pedestrian mode support.
    Now, for example, these maps links here:

    point nowhere.
    I cant find any Garmin link to buy a cityXplorer map: no CX on Garmin official site anymore.

    So don't buy CX maps gift cards, they have been dropped without any notice.

    Who is guilty? NAVTEQ-NOKIA-HERE or GARMIN?

    What? Nobody saw this coming? No EPM for 2013> nuvis, so why would they keep selling them. I don't believe that they ever made any money from CX maps anyway. At only 10 bucks a pop and quite low volume, they couldn't have been a real money-spinner i think.

    RIP CX.

    I am about it too. NAVTEQ-NOKIA-HERE is not welfare fund also. Plus-minus=??? 10 bucks for one town is not so bad too.
    In any case EPM was good only how trip planner for last mile but not for really stand-alone navigation. Its using under condition of modern timetables is equal a trip around town with wheeler-dealer taxi driver when you would be taken to hotel in a couple of blocks from railways station.

    CityXplorers could be a great maps for outdoor devices and for smartphones. Putting them exclusively for nuvi was a stupid idea. Nuvi isn't convenient for pedestrian mode, too heavy, too weak battery. Ok, Garmin noticed that too and reacted with its usual cleverness.
    Thanks, Kanopus

    But maybe it is very pleasant to plan a stop with public transportation scheme in the car yet...
    Timetables in most Europe are so tight that any such favours is useless without online service. As soon as I want to save money for payment parking I am going to WEB and after that usually I forget about this scrooge thoughts. It is too difficult for me, modern traffic It is better if I will be taken by car!

    Not useful? Ask the Nokia users who use them for free in their smartphones.

    Agree with Kanopus. It was very stupid from garmin to make CX maps exclusively for nuvis but not for the pedestrian (outdoor) devices. Pedestrian maps not compatible with the pedestrian devices. Genius decision!

    Garmin didn't do a great job of integrating the EPM maps anyway. It was SO stupid not to make their Hand-Held line-up compatible with EPM.

    If I am visiting a city and walking around, I usually tried to use my Handheld unit instead of my Automotive unit as the Hand Held was more comfortable to carry and easier use... AND I could put in fresh batteries anytime I needed to. With the Auto unit, when the battery went dead, there wasn't much you could do.

    I liked the idea of the Public Transportation info and am hoping they will just merge that info into their regular maps.
