With the release of a map update, Magellan’s eXplorist range now includes the new and improved Summit Series Australian and New Zealand Topographic Maps.
The topographic maps are great for those looking to walk, camp or have fun in the outdoors, as they include thousands of points of interest information, such as trails, lakes and camping grounds, with improved colour representations of these details.
They also feature superior land contour and elevation details – the contour lines are better defined so users can clearly see elevations levels and there are added hill shadings to highlight mountain terrain. When you zoom in and out, the map will scale faster and shelter and steams names will appear when zoomed out, so you can see more landscape details.
And for the 4WD buffs, there are more off-road options available – the new maps cover 105,000 kilometres of off-road tracks around Australia, with map provider, HERE, adding 67,000 kilometres of off-road geometry to the map.
If you have a Magellan eXplorist 710 or 610 that already features the Summit Series map, the new topographic map update is free to download. It can also be purchased for eXplorist 510 devices for $149 and 310 models from $49.99, but the eXplorist 310 can accommodate only one State map at a time.
