Features: CDrom or Memory Card ?

These products provide very detailed topographic maps of Switzerland, see examples below. They are available on two different media: CDrom and µSD/SD memory card. What are the differences ?

The CDrom has the advantage that the detailed maps are installable on a computer where they can be used independant of the GPS or the data medium. On the other hand, the maps must be unlocked for particular GPS devices - you can unlock the maps for two units. In addition, the detailed maps must be transferred from the computer to the GPS device, which might require a significant amount of time, depending on the amount of data you wish to transfer. Topo Switzerland on CDrom is divided into 248 areas and requires a total of 367.5 MB memory on a GPS, but a single area requires only 2.21 MB or less. Depending on the amount of memory available in the GPS device, one or more areas can be transferred to any GARMIN GPS device that supports maps. The CDrom comes with Topo Switzerland V2, which supports vector view only. A full installation Requires approx. 500 MB disk space. Map data based on release 2007.

The µSD/SD memory card has the advantage that the maps are immediately available as soon as you plug in the memory card. In addition, you may use the maps on any number of devices, but only on one device at the time. The GPS has to have a SD or µSD slot. The data is stored on a µSD memory card, but an µSD-to-SD adapter is included. In order to use the maps on a computer, the free software BaseCamp must be installed and you must connect the GPS with the computer using the USB cable, see also MapSource versus BaseCamp. If your computer has a slot for an SD memory card, you may plug in the card into the computer directly, which provides faster access to the data. The memory card comes with Topo Switzerland Pro, which supports vector and pattern view, see images. Map data based on release 2013.

System requirements for versions on CDrom see here. Topo Switzerland V2 is only supported on Windows computers. BaseCamp on the other hand is available for Windows and Mac OS. This product does not include a cable for data exchange with a PC. If you need such a connection cable, see our selection of options.

A very helpful supplement to the program MapSource is the software GARMIN BaseCamp, see www.garmin.com/support/mappingsw.jsp. This is especially true if you are using a GPS from one of the following model series: Colorado, Dakota, Montana, Monterra, Oregon or GPSmap 62.

If you install the memory card in a GPS or transfer maps to a GPS which supports maps, the following features will be added:

If you install the software from a CDrom or connect the GPS with a computer rsp. insert the memory card in a computer where BaseCamp is installed, you can use the following features:
