Note: Do your maps load directly into my GPS Unit?

Yes. Our product comes in a micro SD format with a SD adaptor that loads directly into any Garmin GPS that has an SD/micro SD card slot (the only exception here is marine fixed-mount chartplotters). We provide both the maps and the Backroad Mapbook Points of Interest/activity write up information. The SD/micro SD card slot is found on all current and most Garmin products released in the last 3 years.

Note: 1) What are the Backroad GPS Maps?

Backroad GPS Maps are the most complete recreation and topographic map source available for Garmin GPS in Canada. We have countless more roads, trails and recreational points than any other topographic or recreation GPS maps. We also include write ups on thousands of places to fish, hike, ski, camp, ATV, and so on…this is information you will not find with any other GPS map product in Canada.

Note: 2) Who uses your maps?

Whether you are a weekend warrior, a serious backcountry explorer or working in the bush, our maps are designed to get you there safely and confidently. We show more information like roads, trails and recreation points to allow for easier navigation when outdoors. This information will allow you to spend less time looking and more time fishing, hiking, paddling, ATVing and so on.

Note: 3) If I live in the city can I use your maps?

Yes, we have the most up to date city and highway information available. We also have city recreational points of interest and routing and have even added city specific points like restaurants, toilets and services where available.

Note: 4) How easy are your maps to use?

Our maps and Backroad Extras are simple to use. You simply need to insert the SD Card or micro SD Card into your Garmin GPS and you can start using them.

Note: 5) Can I use the product on my computer in MapSource™ or Basecamp™?

Yes, our maps are compatible with all Garmin software including Basecamp™ or MapSource™once you have registered your product with us. These programs are a great way to view the maps in a larger screen/area and to transfer tracks and waypoints to and from. Please keep in mind we ONLY provide the maps. You still need Garmin software to view and use them.

Note: 6) If I have more than one Garmin unit, can I use your maps on all of them?

Yes, as long as you have bought our SD/micro SD card version and all your GPS units hold SD cards. You can then port our SD card from one Garmin GPS unit to next. You cannot however use it in more than one unit at the same time.

Note: 7) Are the Backroad GPS Maps compatible with GPS enabled smart phones (Android, iOS, Windows)?

No, the GPS Maps are not compatible with smart phones. The GPS Maps are solely intended for GPS units. We offer a different product – BRMB Navigator App - that is compatible with iOS and Android. For more information see our website.

Note: 8) Are the Backroad GPS Maps and Backroad Points of Interest copyrighted?

The maps and Backroad Extras or Points of Interest are protected by copyright. No reproduction in whole or in part is allowed without the expressed written consent of the publisher. Yes, that even includes using screen version of the maps on the internet. If you ask, we are generally supportive of noncommercial reproduction.
