Mexico Maps for GPS Handhelds - 15/02/2006
The first mapping software for handheld GPS navigation devices containing a detailed map of the entire Republic of Mexico has been released by Magallan (CA, USA).
MapSend Topo Mexico provides extensive searchable points of interest, topography, parks and highways, plus street detail for cities with a population of 50,000 or more. Available on a convenient preloaded Secure Digital (SD) memory card, the software converts compatible Magellan eXplorist and Meridian handheld GPS receivers into travel tools allowing outdoor enthusiasts, tourists and adventurers to navigate with ease through both suburban and urban areas, on foot or behind the wheel. MapSend Topo Mexico will be available late February at Radio Shack locations in Mexico and via the website.
MapSend Topo Mexico basemap includes freeways, highways, streets, footpaths, railroads, parks and municipal boundaries in urban areas. The points of interest database contains 24 categories including airports, shops and plazas, entertainment, sports centres and health facilities, plus locations of numerous outdoor attractions like archaeological ruins, gardens and volcanoes.
Magellan MapSend Topo Mexico is the latest in a wide range of software solutions for the desktop and the outdoors that enable users to access topographic maps, marine charts and street navigation - all on a single Magellan GPS receiver.
