The purpose of this venture is to create a detailed topographic map of the entire state of New Mexico at 24k detail. This map is created for Garmin GPS receivers and BaseCamp. It received a complete overhauld in 2016.
- Roads - Interstates, highways, roads, limited unpaved roads (2015 Census Tiger Data)
- High resolution water data - lakes, rivers, streams, marshes, and washes
- Federal Land Usage - Wilderness area, national parks, and military bases/ranges, native american reservations, some state parks
- Borders - County and state boundary lines
- Elevation contours - 24K:1 interval (standard USGS topos) with intervals varying between 10ft and 40ft
- Points of Interest - search for summits, mines, falls, dams, cemeteries, towers, populated places, U.S. Forest Service recreation sites, etc.
- Trails - trail coverage inside of the national parks/forests as well as state parks
This map covers the entire state of New Mexico.

Two options exist; for windows download and run setup. The map will then appear in Garmin BaseCamp and can be added to your GPS by selecting it in BaseCamp 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.
This map can be installed with any other Garmin Maps (How-To Tutorial). Then you simply hide and show other maps until you see the New Mexico Topo. For more detailed instructions check out this tutorial.
