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]
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.
