The purpose of this venture is to create a detailed topographic map of the entire state of Idaho at 24k detail. This map is created for Garmin GPS receivers and Mapsource on both the mac and PC.
- Roads - Interstates, highways, roads, limited unpaved roads (Census Data 2015)
- High resolution water data - lakes, rivers, streams, marshes, and washes
- Federal/State 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 scale
- GNIS Points of Interest - summits, mines, falls, dams, cemeteries, towers, populated places, etc.
- Trails - trail coverage inside of the forests; for even more download the NW Trails map.
- Parks POI - trailheads, camping sites, forest service huts within the national parks/forests
This map covers the entire state of Idaho. All data ends at the border of the state.
The two screenshots below were taken on a Garmin GPSMap 60csx. The one of the left is an area in Boise National Forest; the one on the right is roads near Twin Falls, ID:
This screenshot demonstrates how this topo looks in the new version (6.14.X+) of Garmin MapSource:
This final screenshot compares the Idaho Topo to Garmin's US Topo West and Garmin's Topo 2008:
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.
