Hello and welcome….

If you’ve just come here for the maps, the links below will get you to the right part of this site faster:

  •  The FREE British Isles maps can be downloaded here.
  •  If you are looking for Pre-loaded and Tested MicroSD cards complete with a map on, ready to use in your Garmin devices, then click here.
  •  If you are looking for an electronic map for download for you to install yourself, there are two options:

    • 1. Automatic Downloads (orders will be processed in minutes and you will be sent a link straight after payment), however these are only currently available for a limited number of countries/regions, you can find them here.
    • 2. Electronic Downloads for Self-Install; these are manually processed orders and cover most countries, regions, or in case of the US, Canada, Russia and China, these are available at state, province, federal district or other country divisions, due to size and complexity. For more details click here.
  •  I also offer subscriptions for a limited number of countries/regions, either as single or multi-country option, you can find these here.

You can find an interactive map, showing all the maps I offer below.

This is a new zoom-able map and shows all the maps and options I currently offer for each country. Simply hover over the country/region you are interested in, and it will show you the available options.

Please Note: For this tool to work you must allow scripts to run.

Key:
Bright Blue = Latin Encoded (native language) map.
Bright Red = Latin Encoded (non-native, English language) map.
SkyBlue = No current map available (but I’m working on it).

If there are any countries or regions that you would like maps for, please let me know as I can usually create them quite quickly.

The Canary-Isles and the Azores are not on this map, but I can supply maps of both of them. I also offer an Alps region map and a map of all of Central America.

Details and links to the maps I offer can be found via the links below (the tables show all the options for each region include live links to the correct part of the shop):

  • Maps of British Isles & Ireland offered. This includes my FREE downloadable Standard British Isles maps for use on a Garmin GPS, and versions for direct use on a Mac or PC in BaseCamp and MapSource.

Maps for ALL other countries/regions, etc. are only available for purchase.


I recently crunched the data from orders received during 2017. This shows what maps were most requested, individual countries as well as individual US states and Canadian provinces.

The most interesting data from 2017 for me was that showing the most popular Garmin devices that my customers used, with the Fenix 5x (only released in March 2017) leading the pack with over 22 percent of those placing orders for maps, owning one.

You can see the info-graphic full-size by simply clicking on the graphic to the left of this text.

This is an amazing statistic as it shows that smart watches with GPS and map support is not only viable and usable, but also how many people are now using these devices (rather than hand-held devices); from the average person, through those that track their fitness and health (sleep, calories, heart-rate, stress, steps, stairs, other activity, etc.) to those that compete professionally or regularly in ultra events (races, rides, etc.)

You can see the top data in the info-graphic on the left of this text. For those that would like to see the full data-set and results, you can find them here.


This is Talkytoaster and welcome to my combined public and subscription site offering maps for Garmin devices of the British Isles (and beyond, including Europe, USA, Canada, Asia, Africa, Central America, South America, Russia, Australia and Oceania!).

All the maps offered here and others offered by Talkytoaster are based on data from multiple sources, including OSM and NASA.

I send pre-loaded and tested map cards all over the World, not just to UK addresses.
The same is true for electronic (self-install maps and subscriptions), except there is no physical shipping involved…

I offer two styles of maps:

TT 1:50K Look n Feel
This one mimics the Garmin Discoverer map but is based on OSM data. This map is recommended for walkers, cyclists and geocachers. It is not suitable for use as a sat-nav on roads as the routing is significantly different as it will route down footpaths, bridleways and other tracks as well as roads.

This map style offers the highest level of detail of my OSM based maps, often showing detail (where mapped) that would be only found on 1:25K or higher resolution maps. This includes field boundaries, benches, stiles, gates, water points, etc.

The TT 1:50K Look n Feel maps are only available for purchase or via a subscription.

You can see examples of how the maps look on my site here.

A small sample map for the  TT 1:50K  British Isles map is available upon request so that you can see the level of detail and quality of the map before purchasing a full map or buying a subscription.

You can find a video I created showing the TT 1:50K map (Snowdonia) at different zoom levels, here. As this link goes to my YouTube channel you will also find other useful videos there, including tutorials on how to install the maps!

Standard Map
This one is my standard routable OSM based map. This can be used for road navigation but only routes to street level (not Post Code).

I offer a FREE version of my map for the British Isles (including ALL of Ireland) on this site, these can be found here.

Please Note: I no longer offer the Standard style for purchase, only the TT 1:50K Look n Feel style.

I offer the TT 1:50K Look n Feel map style (including maps for other countries) on pre-loaded and tested MicroSD cards, I can also install maps on your own MicoSD card, or supply maps as electronic downloads (for self install)

The subscription site is for those that want to have regular updates to my TT 1:50K Look n Feel style maps. More details on the subscription service and subscription options can be found here.

Curious about the person behind this site and many of the things offered here? If so, then this is the link you want.

You can also discuss the maps and find out when the latest versions are released by joining my Facebook group.
