Garmin have mapped every hill and valley in the US with their latest release of US Maps – TOPO US 2008. The maps are constructed from DEM (Digital Elevation Model) data unlike the previous models that were constructed from digitized versions of the USGS maps. Garmin have added some new features like the new topo map shading that can be used to quickly evaluate a terrain, street names have also been added to the maps and as always they have included lakes, reservoirs, waterways, rivers and streams with icons to represent boat ramps, dams, campgrounds and trails.
Garmin have released a $30 Rebate for the MapSource Topo 2008. Using the rebate puts the price at about $50
