I found this on a site

and it works :)

I must tell you all however don't go to here (http://www.mininova.org/tor/778802) to download it because that's like using pirate software on your PC and we don't do that.

So this is just a Warning to stay away from this free illegal source of the Garmin Topo map of GB please :nono

It's on a torrent format i might add

Is this relevant to Ireland and should we avoid this too?

Phew, thanks for the warning Tuned, just as well because I don't seem to have a programme on my computer that will open it anyway. What would you have used to open it, presuming it was a legal version? :beer:

It's a good job you have not downloaded this first then.

A torrent file is like an address link.

You can use a program called Bitcomet which uses the link:thumb to download the actual files

Just to double check that i shouldn't use this i had a look to see what was there. It doesn't have any footpaths and is not routable. Dose the official version have footpaths and is it routable.

Also how do i remove maps from my Zumo?

thanks in anticipation

If one were to do such an awful thing would one see hatched areas of straight lines that are not contours (someone told me they did :augie) and if one were to see such things what are they?

Looking at my friends copy;) it shows these lines as signifying woods.:thumb2
