Malta
« on: December 31, 2009, 09:26:34 AM »
 :)Hi All
I did use the search facility [honest] but i was unable to find any information with regard to Malta.
I have a Nuvi 550, that i use for Trail Biking, and in my Vehicle.
I am planning a trip to Malta, and out of curiosity zoomed in, with the standard on unit mapping ???
well to put it mildly, it is quite woeful.
Would any one know where i might be able to aquire some mapping in a bit more detail.
At the moment it's looking like Mrs Fallen will be back on paper map duties ;).
I did look on the Garmins home site, but am slightly hesitant about reusing there service after I/ we manage to overwrite the in unit map downloading a Portuguese map.
Many thanks and regards in advance.
Mike

The built-in basemap is fairly general.  Cloudmade has a Multa map - at least general outline and streets/roads, see: http://downloads.cloudmade.com/europe/malta#breadcrumbs

 :)Many thanks, i got my youngest son to load the zipped file, but it gave a red background, that was a bit user unfriendly.
Many regards for a very fast response.
Have a great New Year.
