    I have the Garmin E-Map and was wondering if anyone had any of the Topo maps. Are they on CD or floppy? Are they worth it?

  2. The topo maps come in a 3 CD set which gives you the entire U.S. In my opinion they are worth it. You can go to the garmin site and "test drive" the the maps by selecting topo maps in the "mapsource map viewer" on the page. They have the entire U.S. online so you should be able to find something familiar to look at.

  4. I think all of the Best Buy stores sell them, that's where I picked mine up. I also bought the U.S. Roads and Recreation CD set which provides detailed street info beyond what you get with the built in map set. The Garmin web site has a dealer locator on the main page.

    Are they on CD? I have access to a CD burner.

    I just got my Garmin and was considering these maps. About what does a set of these go for at Best Buy?
