NOTE: A much more accurate and current California Topo is available here.  GPSFileDepot recommends the new 2011 California Topo.

This map is a release of the California Topo map by Laura Sanborn.  The original download is no longer available.  With her help and permission GPSFileDepot was able to compile the map into a version that includes a Mac and Windows installer so that older GPS units can take just the sections they need.  It eliminates the need to have a new GPS and a completely blank microSD/SD card.



This map covers the entire state of California.

Two options exist; for windows download and run setup. The map will then appear in Garmin MapSource and can be added to your GPS by selecting it in MapSource and sending it to the GPSr. For Mac download the mac version, extract it and double click the .gmapi file.  Map Manager will then install the map for you.

NOTE: A brand new and much more up to date California Topo is available here.  GPSFileDepot recommends the new 2011 California Topo.
