I am not having 100% success at routing on some of them but the Thai / Laos and Cambodia ones seem fine. I assume those are the highest priority for 99% of posters here.

Its packaged as one unlocked almost 200MB gmapsupp.img file.. Simply upload to the unit, I cant get it into mapsource using the conversion tools so far.

Sorry for the dumb question. I'm not used to loading maps into my Garmin without using Mapsource. I tried to drag and drop the gmapsupp file directly onto my micro SD card (I have an adapter to plug it into my computer) but no new maps show up on my 60csx. How do I upload this and get it to work?

Try to create "Garmin" folder first and then copy the .img file into this folder. :)

I know these maps but they are a work in progress. They are a cooperative effort by a group of people called Asia GPS. You can download the map from here: http://www.asiagps.org/forum/showthread ... 4#post1434

Vietnam seems to be quite OK but Cambodia, Laos and Thailand are not yet well developed. The main roads are on the map but a lot of the minor roads are missing while there are also not that many points of interests (fuel, hotels, restaurants, etc.) which probably are the things you would be looking for.

Ok thanks,

do you have a recommendation for the Loas/Cambodia/Thailand?

I already have the GT Rider maps for Loas and Northern Thailand, so just something that tells me I am on the right road would almost be sufficient.

Marty.

I like the sliders maps for cambodia/laos
althought they showed some different tracks to other maps, and the newer roads in eg near battambang were not shown, it was the best I have seen so far

I think I might take a punt on these RCMaps and see what happens.

I will be sure to post my experiences.

Know I just need to figure out how it all works... should be fun.

Where can I find this map? - always eager to see what is "on the market" with regard to GPS maps for Cambodia
