The Open Street Maps on microSD cards are available for sale in our Online Shop as a less expensive alternative to the Garmin maps cards.

We have maps for the entire world. Map coverage is generally excellent inside the United States and Western Europe. These cards are topographic, meaning they include contour lines at higher zoom levels. If you would like to know how well your area is covered, our “RWGPS” styled maps present in our route planner are drawn using the same OpenStreetMap data as the cards. Please check this before ordering maps for use in Central/South America, Eastern Europe or Africa. Coverage in those places is generally good around cities, but can be spotty in rural areas.

If you’re not sure which region to get, this page shows the areas that each microSD card covers.
