GPS maps
Beckett, your indications about the maps you use with your GPS have me a little intrigued. If I understand you correctly, besides having the SMC contour map installed on your unit, you also create and transfer to the GPS other map layers using info that you have gleaned from the OS maps. How do you go about this? I thought that this implied making painstaking and time-consuming vector maps using specialised computer programmes. Or are you simply referring to the ordinary process of transferring waypoints and routes to the GPS? I have installed the SMC contour map on my own unit and use it in conjunction with Garmin City Select for national roads, but being able to add even further layers of info (without cluttering up the screen, of course) would take the whole process to a new level of usefulness.
