I finally completed the GPS Map Database.

Here it is: World Map Database (no direct linking please, link to this thread instead)

It has every country listed and links to maps that are suitable for GPS Navigation and calibration. It's split into 2 sections. The first section has a list of commercial products that can either do GPS navigation or at least route planning. The second section are free maps all over the web that can be downloaded and calibrated. I have not included any maps that are too vague (like CIA fact book maps etc...) so all maps are suitable for navigation.

I wasn't able to find maps for every single country out there, so some are still blank. But so far there are over 2000 maps, covering the majority of the world.

Feel free to post new links that I have not found and will add them to the database.

I am still planning to put together a write up with some tips on calibration, general databases that are available out there with lat/long locations and some other useful stuff.

gpspassion.
May be you can add this to the website with an interface, so that it can be interactive?

Sorry, email notification haven't been working due to server problems (clogged by viruses).
Great job! I think we should try to put it in HTML format and/or (if html proves too difficult) link it from the front page for easy access. Would you be ok with that?

Sure. Either one is ok with me.
By the way, I keep adding a few new things almost everyday, so I keep reuploading the file. So because of that, linking the spreadsheet it self is probably better, otherwise it won't get updated as often.

I've added a link to this thread in the "All Terrain" file for easy reference http://www.gpspassion.com/fr/articles.asp?id=65&page=2
At some point it will probably make sense to have a specific article for this superb undertaking ;-)

No download, juste list of coverage by Country. Never see downloadable Garmin Mapping Product :-( (except TOPO for USA ?)
But for Belgium, here is 2 maps with communication roads (1/800.000 and 1/1.200.000) and some maps with geographics entities from IGN Belgium (Free for personal use), all calibrated in tiff format.

Thanks. I think these maps are too old for the database. The purpose of the database is to point users to maps that they can actually use for GPS navigation if they travel, so maps older than 1950s won't really help.

In your database you don´t have maps of Paraguay. I can get some maps but what kind of maps do you need? I´m looking for maps that I can input UTM or geographic coordinates in order to locate my plantation lots via my GPSmart BT to my PPC IPAQ h2215. Can they be in JPG format. How do I input gps coordinate to the map in question?
Can you help?

Somebody help. I can obtain topographic maps including aerialphotograph including the UTM coordinates which I have in my PC with AUTOCAD. With GPS I can locate points in the topographic maps, but how do I put this map with coordinates in my Pocket pc IPAQ 2215 and make the GPSmart w/Bluetooth appear or draw on the PPC. Where can I get a software that can do this? Help me.

You need to get OziExplorer (www.oziexplorer.com) and calibrate the maps on the PC. You don't need your GPS to calibrate if you already have the UTM coordinates of known points on the maps. Then you will convert the images using Ozi to OZF2 format and use those files on PPC using OziCE.

Where did you get maps of Paraguay?

From the INSTITUTO GEOGRAFICO MILITAR of Paraguay. They have topographical maps of all the country (Paraguay), also they have aerial photograph that can be ajusted with UTM coordinates. I will check with them if they have a web page and inform you.

I bought a CD with the aerial photograph in the scale I need and of the aerea of my ranch. The photo is adjusted to the coordinates UTM so I can open it in AUTOCAD. The CD costs around USD 50 or less.
The file is about 120 MB.
The mayor is waiting for your email and I told him about having a map of Paraguay on file with coordinates for you. He will wait your email with your requirements. Luis

A history file is too complicated, because I have been updating it over the past few days and can't remember anymore every single change. :-(

The updates are:
1) Removed some dead links
2) New commercial software for Russia and countries supported by PaPaGo
3) New free maps for Gibraltar, Moldova, Russia, some Pacific Islands, Egypt, and Lybia

Igurevich38, you may try to auto-translate either just a specific text or a whole page from Italian or other languages to English: http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en

It is not a perfect translation, but if you need the information it usually helps quite a bit.

iGurevich38, you could edit your 1st post on page 1 to replace the "over 1000 maps" with "over 2000 maps" to reflect the current status, and the result of your hard work (labor of love) ;-)

Some updates for your section on Chile.

The movilemap.cl link appears to be dead.

I could not find any information on the chile inter@ctivo CD Rom listed on the Turistel site. Turistel is a company that publishes annual paper volumes of guides to Chile in Spanish. Sort of the Chilean version of the Michelin guide. That's their main business and they don't seem to do much in the way of electronic maps. I sort of expect that their CD Rom is more of a tourist guide with lots of text rather than electronic maps. Their books are more like Loney Planet books in that they are 95% text with occasional regional maps and maps of certain urban areas.

However, I did discover a company in Chile that is producing routable Garmin maps of Chile that will work in all the common Garmin mapping GPS units. The company is called GPS Chile and their website is here: http://www.gpschile.com/mapas_gps.html

I emailed them for more information on purchasing and/or downloading their products but haven't yet received a reply. However I have found them available for purchase online through Falabella, a large department store chain in Chile:

http://www.todomercado.com/aviso/ExtIr.do?idAviso=1106540509752
http://www.todomercado.com/aviso/ExtIr.do?idAviso=1106540509753

The price in dollars comes to about $230 at today's exchange rate. I will probably buy them on my next trip to Chile and see how good they are.

Thanks for the new links.
I emailed Handmap about movilemap.cl. They were just a map provider for Handmap, so may be they got a new one. Will find out.
Turistel CD is on their site under Productos Turis Com in the middle of the page.

There seem to be some Ozi calibrated satellite maps for Morocco here http://www.sahara-info.ch/gps/Satellitenbilder/SatCDdownload.htm - trial versions possibly.

Thanks for the news, I would post this in a new "Navteq Coverage" thread in the news or mapping section though as it will probably take some time to trickle down to the end-user so that we can add it to the database ;-) Actually maybe not that long because NAVIGON is adding this area to the nez MN|5 version.

Since I will soon be travelling to Taiwan I have been lookin at maps and foudnd the following:
1. You have MapKingv2 and MapKing2003, not sure what the difference is, but both have an interface in English and maps in Chinese. Installing CE-Star (free if you just use it to decode fonts it seems) then the rendering will be improved so you might be able to show the map to cab driver ;-)

2. Not much in the way of topo maps, Berkeley have some apparently but access is reserved to UC students. There are some topo maps for Garmin units as seen here but I'm not sure how/if they can be bought outside Taiwan.

No, so I've been painstakingly matching the mapking maps with online maps http://www.taiwan-map.com/EngMap/search_a.asp !
Where did you find these maps in English ? Anyway, having maps in English in Taiwan probably wouldn't do too much good anyway as all the street signs are in Chinese I'm told.

Here are the English Mapking maps, but you're right I don't see Taiwan on there. I guess they didn't make one yet.
http://www2.mapking.com/en/MapKingDowloadPageEng2.htm
The same map works for the PC and PPC version.

If you want to get fancy, when in Taiwan you can easily buy a paper map that has both English and Chinese on it (I got one in Shanghai) for $2 and then if you bring with you a little scanner you can calibrate it in Ozi. I have a Canon LIDE 35 scanner that's the size of a standard piece of paper and fits easily into a back pack.

That's a thought although I'll probably just get a paper map and then compare with what I see on MapKing. It doesn't seem locals use the English names anyway ;-)

The names on English maps are written in Pin Yin which is the official way of writing Chinese using English characters. So many of them can read it (it's taught in school), as long as they are educated. If you will stay in cities then it will be useful, but in the country probably not. In Shanghai most streets were labeled in Pin Yin also, but I don't know what the story with Taiwan is.

Poland - 18% of the area is now covered in TomTom Navigator 5. The largest cities have street addresses, most of cities with only stret names. All international, national and regional roads (plus some local) included.
Warsaw (the capital) has been made pretty well. Many POIs.
Waiting for further improvements...

Great compilation of useful information for us travellers. Are you an avid traveller, igurevich38? I did contact NavTurk, and their latest version can be read in English, as well as Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Italian, and of course Turkish. It does look like an all in one unit, tho. D'ya think I can use it with my laptop, and if so do I need some compatible software?

Same here. There are a bunch of links for Cyprus.

Sallykil:
Don't know about NavTurk. You should contact them

tibogs:
In the database there is a section called WORLD (see in the list under W). There are there are at least a couple of links to what you're looking for.

By the way, the database has been upated again a few days ago.
1) New software for Romania
2) New maps for Kazakhstan, Russia, and some link corrections

Great compilation, very helpful! Thanks a lot.

Just to contribute something, there are a couple of commercial GPS navigation and map software not yet mentionned in this database:

http://www.viamichelin.co.uk/viamichelin/gbr/jsp/nav/MaNavigationHome.jsp

It has maps for most Western Europe, and a couple of Eastern Europe countries.

http://www.informap.ru/english/products/pda/pda_gps/index.html

It has maps for the United Arab Emirates.

Concerning other GPS navigation softwares like TomTom and Digi-Map, there are quite a few new maps released, in particular for Eastern Europe.

There is going to be one Product I-Go it should be released in Israel in the next few dayes with Israel , East and west Europe maps on 1 minisd or SD 1GB card . (USA maps will be released in the near future as well) I saw the pre release version it has an amazing video performance and the option to navigate all around the globe from country to country is going to change the way we used to navigate in the past.

Gonen.
Thanks for the NavnGo update. I saw the original release and the problem that I noticed was that when you select in what language you want it displayed it automatically loaded both the interface and the map in the same language, which is very annoying if you're in Israel. In the new iGo is it the same way? It would be better to be able to load the interface in English and still chose the Hebrew map for those who can read but don't speak the language very well. Like Di does it. Otherwise the street names transliterated into English don't make any sense half the time.

@stevepowers - not easy to add non Garmin maps to a Garmin unit, you have to make your own with tools like http://www.geopainting.com/en/

@GSC - you'll need a moving map application, a good place to start -> http://www.gpspassion.com/fr/articles.asp?id=65

Thanks all. Having been an avid C320 user for a year or so I've recently got up to speed on making customised maps for the Garmin units and just about have it figured out. It seemed to me this could be interesting to perhaps add a link to any such free digital maps on igurevich's excellent database ... here is one of Croatia http://gps-maps.info/en/index/download

Plus - thanks for the link to the commercial map - that I'd also be interested in.

Map conversion if off-topic here, start a new one, what's the source of this map of Mexico, did it ship with your Typhoon GPS, didn't know they had these maps.

I'm going to the southwest of US to drive around for 11 days, and I'm quite confused about how to get a US map for my Medion (Navigon) version 5.1 navigational system.

I'm renting a car from AVIS, and they hire out navigational systems for $9.95/day, but since I already have my Medion, I would of course prefer to use that, but the problem is, that I only have maps of European countries.

Does anybody know how to get free maps of the southwestern US that will fit on to my Medion?

I have downloaded a few maps found via the maps database mentioned in the first post of this forum, but I can't make it work, since Medion requires the file extension of the mapfile to be ".map".

Can I use map data with other fileextensions, and then transform it into *.map format?

Yes that won't work.
It's possible the Navigon Clevermap maps are compatible, but check on their site for sure.

Thanks for the updated maps, these 250k topo maps look interesting, will check them out to see if the calibration is included.

I tend to keep dead links in the database because some of them either reappear back eventuallyor appear in other places so at least people know that such map existed and can google it.
I am not sure if it would be better to just remove them right away.

Hi guys just wanted to post you with an update: Newer updates version maps of India are now out ... i purchased these maps from www.itemsofdesire.com yesterday and they seem pretty good ... the 3d Navigation coupled with voice prompting seems to work well even on slower devices now and the accuracy is much better now!

Hi igurevich38!
Also I am living in Denmark but I came from Syria and I am interested to test calibrate the maps when I will visit home next time since there is no commercial one available.
By the way there is no links to Navman maps

Great work

Hi

I am new to gps, so any help would be gratefully appreciated.

I have searched the net for a map of Cyprus which I can use on my TomTom Go 910, I have found one that is a .vtm file and have found out that TomTom use a .mms file.

If anyone has a tool for converting this or any explaination as to how I can use this map, then I would be very grateful.

Or if anyone knows where I can get a map of Cyprus, again Iwould be very grateful.

OK thanks for the link but I was hoping for a cross reference to the devices that work with these maps as there are so many different gps devices out there it is a bit of a minefield.
