Hello Mayake

Here are the maps for the Mnweni area in both OSM version and the 2013 Topo Pro. I think the Topo Pro is better than Tracks 4 Africa and both are clearly way better than the OSM version.

I use the Africa Topo map from Mad Mappers its available for R300 here:
madmappers.com/AfricaTopo/

I only use this map, along with points that I've saved previously or downloaded from this site and it serves my purposes extremely well.
(Note that it is basically a contour-line map and does not have much in the way of other information.)

When zoomed in, it shows 20m Contour intervals.

Thks Viking,
It looks great.
I have just studied their free sample (sentinel car park area).
Do you used it with another map, as it seems that it shows only courbs and not many POIs nor roads/trails ?
And then it does not cover Lesotho, however is the Drakensberg entirely covered by it ?

The trick which bothers me with the Topo Garmin map is its atrocious green color. I'll a change its typ file to see if it comes out best. Its 3D is useful in BaseCamp.

Here there are two torrent links to download the maps hereupper. I have modified the Garmin Map with a type file I like which give the curbs and the rivers more readable and there is not the dreadful green color. (you must register I fear)

Mods you can delete the post if you think it doesn't follow forum-rules. I'll not feel offended ;)
Hoping it will help

As long as the links are not for illegal software, and as long as any applicable terms of use have not been violated in creating that software. E.g.is Garmin ok with the way their product is being used. If this is the case then the links should be removed and people can get them from you privately if they want. As a webmaster and web owner I am obligated to uphold good ethics on the web, as well as the law, and can thus not host information which goes against this.

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

Hi guys
Please help me with my GPS.
It is an older model Vista, has a colour screen and maps can be loaded onto it.
I also have Garmin basecamp on the pc.
Smurf very kindly loaded a lot of data on the device, which I then transferred to Basecamp and edited, changed all the symbols, deleted duplicates and stuff that only pertained to particular hike.
So now I want to delete from the GPS and export the edited data, but I can't seem to delete the data on the device from Base camp.
It highlights but doesn't give me an option to delete.
Any ideas?

I still use the Map Source with my older GPS units, seems to work better than Basecamp.
