MetroGuide Canada v4

Discontinued: Replcaded by MetroGuide Canada Version 5

Street-level detail for most areas in Canada!
MetroGuide Canada v4 was developed using DMTI Spatial data, and is designed to provide users with detailed, routable coverage throughout all Canadian provinces, including detailed water feature coverage! View content here using Garmin's Map Viewer.

This CD is designed for use with routable Garmin products such as the StreetPilot III, StreetPilot 2610/2650 : iQue 3600 : GPS V : GPSMAP 60Cx/CSx : GPSMAP 76Cx/CSx : GPSMAP 196 : GPSMAP 296 : GPSMAP 396 : GPSMAP 496 with voice prompting on voice-equipped models. The routing feature of MetroGuide Canada V4 is best used as a navigational aid only, not as a tool for precise navigation.

This product is not locked, which will allow users the ability to download the detailed maps to compatible GPS units such as the eTrex Legend series, : eTrex Vistas : the Rino models : GPSMAP 76 : GPSMAP 76S : GPSMAP 176 : GPSMAP 176C : eMap : StreetPilot : StreetPilot Colormap : GPSMAP 182/182C : GPSMAP 188/188C : GPSMAP 232 : GPSMAP 238 : GPSMAP 2006/2006C : GPSMAP 2010/2010C, : GPSMAP 295 : GPSMAP 496. Some units require a Garmin data card. However, the amount of detail provided by MetroGuide Canada means that the geographic area that can be downloaded at one time to fixed-memory models will be limited. [NB: Automatic route calculation will not be possible on non-routing models. MetroGuide Canada V 4 is not compatible with limited internal memory models such as the GPS III Plus or GPS 12MAP]

This map data will allow you to look up addresses and points of interest throughout Canada and route directly to them. MetroGuide Canada includes provincial highways, controlled access highways, local roads and residential roads throughout Canada - not limited to major metropolitan areas. Actual content may be viewed online using Garmin's MapSource Map Viewer!

MapSource on the PC can be used to pre-plan trips, mark waypoints and build routes. Waypoints, routes and tracks can then be downloaded to a Garmin GPS. NOTE: Routes created on the PC and downloaded to non-autorouting models will display all the waypoints necessary for correct navigation, but the route will be displayed as a straight line between those waypoints (i.e. it will NOT be drawn exactly following the road between waypoints.) This is normal and is a result of the lower processing power of such models.
