The Maps

“I read more maps than books”

GPS: Garmin Nuvi 850, Garmin etrex Legend CX, USGS Topo 1:250,000 scale mapping software Topo Maps: Delorme’s, The Roads of New Mexico, BLM Topo 1:100,000 scale, Forrest Service Topo 1:126,720 scale A word on GPS: Don’t buy a topo specific GPS unit for driving off-road. The screens on units such as the Garmin Oregon and Colorado are too small to function well while driving. The same Garmin topo maps can be purchased on SD cards from Garmin for devices with SD slots. The Garmin Nuvi series is a good platform for combining a sophisticated on-road GPS with supplemental topo mapping.
