Here's another reason to toss out those paper maps: the eMap. It's the size of a small, flat calculator, contains a 12 parallel channel GPS receiver, and weighs a mere six ounces. Even with its compact style, the eMap boasts an extra-large display for showing even more map data and the same power you've come to expect from Garmin handhelds — even while operating for up to 12 hours on just two AA batteries.
The eMap features an internal basemap containing information on North and South America including state and country boundaries, lakes, rivers, streams, airports, cities, towns, coastlines and U.S., state and interstate highways. In addition, the eMap provides exit information for the federal interstate highway system. With the eMap, you will know when you are near services such as food, lodging and service stations.
The eMap is compatible with Garmin's complete line of downloadable MapSource® CD-ROMs including U.S. Roads and Recreation, WorldMap, U.S. Topo and MetroGuide® U.S.A. When paired with the MetroGuide U.S.A. CD-ROM, the eMap has the ability to look up address and telephone number information for nearby services and points of interest. The eMAP will store eight or 16 megabytes of downloaded CD-ROM information at a time depending on the size of the cartridge you use in the unit.
Designed with everyone in mind, this unit will take you from the car to the hiking trail to the beach without missing a beat.
