GPS Maps of Nordthailand and Loas?

Discussion in 'GPS Use, Tracks & Maps Discussion' started by Phuketfan, Feb 9, 2010.

  1. Hello to all :)

    At november, our second 4x4 Tour will start - for North of Thailand, and one Week of Laos.

    Maybee you remember my German Tripreport: http://www.gt-rider.com/thailand-motorc ... t5667.html

    I have buyed all GT-Rider Paper Maps for Norththailand, but its good to have a backup Solution with GPS.

    Last time i rent a Garmin Nüvi GPS for 200 Bath /day with the actual Garmin Source of thailand. Now i have a Nüvi at home, searching for GPS Maps for it.

    I hope it gives GPS Maps with the GT-Rider information?

    Found this here:
    http://www.gt-rider.com/thailand-motorc ... t4684.html Are this only the actual Garmin Maps, or does it have added more informations?

    I found here the rotweilermaps.com - does they have Offroad information?

    Or can i Pretest the GPS GT Rider Maps?

    Whats about the GT-Rider Maps from Laos, i doent find a link to buy :-( :oops:

    Hope you could help me out :)

    Also i want to log my Trip, and post the files here afterwards - what hardware does i need?
     
  2. For the Laos GPS map see http://www.eaglegps.co.th/ and scroll down a bit where you will find information or send an email to [email [email protected]][email protected][/email] This is the same company (in Panthip Plaza Chiangmai) where you did rent the Nuvi GPS last time

    They also sell the Laos as well as maps for other areas produced by GT Riders.
     
  3. Many thanks for your answer. I write them a email.

    phuketfan :D
     
  4. There is an excellent free routable gps map available on http://mapcenter2.cgpsmapper.com. Click your way through to North Thailand road map.

    I have incorporated an older version of this (with permission, of course) into the Wanderlust project. Bob tells me that the Thailand part of the map will be free, but it hasn't been released yet.

    Cheers,
    Peter.
     
  5. Bad news on the two links I posted above: Macenter2 has been down for months and it may never come back, although the old mapcenter did. You can get a copy of KC Loh's N Thailand map from the author in the malsingmaps.com forum.

    The Wanderlust maps have so far not materialised.

    Now for the good news: routable free maps for anywhere can be had here. You can add roads or fix errors yourself on OSM and the updates will show normally in about two weeks.

    Cheers,
    Peter.
     
  6. Another source for free routable maps is CloudMade. Twice a month they publish extracts from the Open Street Map (OSM) for countries. The latest map for Laos is here: http://downloads.cloudmade.com/asia/laos with the map ready for the GPS (gmapsupp.img) here: http://downloads.cloudmade.com/asia/laos/laos.img.zip

    For an overview of free GPS maps based upon OSM see here: http://downloads.cloudmade.com/asia/
     
  7. Anything else??????????
     
  8. Is there a shop in BKK, where I can get the GT Rider Laos GPS map?
    I have no possibility to go to CNX this year....
     
  9. Try Eagle GPS

  10. Hi David, I checked this website, but found only their address in C.M.
     
  11. You could email them & see if it is possible for them post it to you?
