"I recently had the pleasure of tramping the Hikurangi Range between Purity hut and McKinnon Hut (The track for which I'll upload to RC to add to his tracks). Unfortunately at 6:30pm We discovered that our dog had eaten some rat bait...

So, while I wouldnt recommend night tramping [-X , we we're able to use RCs maps to find our way in the pitch black over to the road end over the next 6 hours (normally a 3 hour tramp). We lost the track a number of times and without the GPS and RCs integrated topo map we surely wouldnt have been able to get out, jump in the car and make a quick getaway to the vet at Taihape for the antidote.

So here's a special thanks from us and our dog to the GPS community for these maps you lot are truely life savers!

(The dog is fine now - just as naughty as ever)"

"Many thanks, it was an easy 10 minute download (no download manager etc) so will install it on a few units to try out.
Laymen like myself have no idea of the number of hours the OP (Open Project) mappers already contribute so this extra effort is certainly appreciated.
It's uncanny to be able to use the route tool on a track!"






This combines NZ Open GPS road maps with RCMAPS's DOC Tramping, Hiking, Walking and Biking maps and SRTM 10m topographical contour lines of New Zealand



Thanks to a R Birch from Australia who downloaded the CGIAR V4 SRTM 10m contour lines raw data and sent that to me to compile and incorporate into these maps.



FEATURES




  • Street and address searching should work for both road and tracks



  • Street Searchable - you can search for track names



    • to SEARCH for ROAD MAPS, SELECT Country = NEW ZEALAND


    • to SEARCH for TRACK names, SELECT Country = NZ-Doc


  • Only contains DOC managed tracks, regional, city council or private tracks not available



  • Please download my other tramping maps if you need a complete set of maps - in future the intention is to "merge" both these maps



  • All tracks are named and identified by way of colour coding as either tramping grade (rough and require some route finding skills) or "motorway" grade - eg Great Walks! ;-)



  • Auto Routing - gives you estimated time to your destination (based on 5km/h setting as long as you remember to reset your GPS unit for "walking mode")



  • Track Names some with distances and time to complete



  • POIs of key tramping features



  • Different track types displayed differently on Mapsource and GPS using new features of the map compiler and also visible at three different zoom level setting!



  • Valid types are MTB/Cycle Track, Great Walks (both these visible at LEAST detailed zoom level setting), Short Walk, Walking Track, Easy Tramping Track, Route and Historic Track (only viewable at MOST detailed zoom level)





LIMITATIONS




  • Base data from DOC had many errors which required hundreds of hours of work to clean up into a routeable and properly working - so enjoy and please feedback any further corrections


  • Requires Garmin Mapsource to view and upload maps to your GPS
