OSI GPS mapping
Brenno, if I am not mistaken, the main difference between the two software products you mention is that the Garmin Eire Discoverer cards can be used for routing on Irish roads as you drive and also provide a Points of Interest list. The Satmap cards are more ‘static’, giving you only the OS maps. On the other hand, you need four Garmin maps, at around Euro 159 each, to cover the total island of Ireland, whereas you can get full cover of the island on a single Satmap Republic of Ireland + Northern Ireland card for around Euro 199. In both cases, of course, you need to have the appropriate hardware – either a Garmin handheld mapping GPS or the equivalent Satmap one – and that adds to the cost, although mapping is sometimes bundled with them at a bargain price. What many of us have done is to just get a basic Garmin mapping GPS and then upload, free of charge, the very serviceable topo maps elaborated by the Scottish Mountaineering Club (Ireland and the UK) or by pazapas (Ireland). Both are presented on MountainViews. The uploading is not complicated, but it is done at your own risk.
