Desert Map

   The Nevada and New Mexico maps are very similar to the ones reviewed for Arizona and the Desert Southwest maps. Great enhancements to your standard may systems offered by Garmin. The California map offered by GPS File Depot and linked here is excellent. Not only is the detail great but they are easier to read. See the examples below. Utah - see below.
   Here are two examples of the topography detail on both the maps in the Picacho State Park area of Southeastern California.The Colorado River and the drainages (washes) are visible along with roads and topography features.
    You can see how much more detail there is and how much easier it is to read the map. 
    Once again the Nevada and New Mexico maps are very similar to the Arizona topo maps you can download at GPS File Depot.
   Here's a screen capture of the Utah map we downloaded. This map shows the detailed topography and the other map features you might need, plus more of the Jeep trails than some of the other maps. This is a very easy map to read. There is no elevation shading, but for off-road travel this is an excellent map.

   The people at the GPS File Depot are very helpful, so don't overlook their forum (registration is free). If you had to buy these maps they could be very expensive, so don't hesitate to DONATE to their site! They have many links on the site for installing and using these maps, and even building them if you choose to do so.
