    Default Garmin GPS Maps for Pakistan!

    Ladies (if there are any ladies on this forum :p) and Gentleman:

    For the first time in Pakistan, GPS maps for Pakistan (most of the Pakistan, not whole) can be found and used free of cost.

    The intelligent and creative people behind this ingenious work present you GPS enabled partially-route-able maps for the 3 major cities ( as well as lods of others) and almost all the highways of Pakistan.

    To download and use these maps, follow the guidelines below:

    NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE A GARMIN GPS UNIT FOR IT TO WORK
    (what's the point of downloading maps if you don't have a Garmin GPS unit????)

    1. Go to the site :
    http://mapcenter2.cgpsmapper.com/cat...hp?country=206

    2. Download the map of your choice. (source file is necessary)

    3. Follow this link and read the instructions to transfer the map to your Garmin GPS Unit and voila, you have a GPS Navigation system in your car!
    http://pkmaps.freeforums.org/how-to-...evice-t48.html

    (Garmin is an independant manufacturer of GPS hardware which can be used for such purposes in a car as well as for pedestrian purposes. However, these maps are not suitable for step by step guidance.
    Visit www.garmin.com for further information)

    Please take your time to thank the people who are behind all this great project. (I am not a part of that team, I just stumbled upon the links accidentally)

    NOTE 2 : These maps are created under the UMP License, which allows to download, share, modify and re-distribute these maps at your own free will. So please feel free to spread them as much as you can ( and nobody can hold you responsible for illegal use)

    DISCLAIMER: I HEREBY DO NO CLAIM ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE USE OF SUCH MAPS. I SHALL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS, INJURY OR DAMAGE CAUSED TO ANY PERSON OR HIS/HER PROPERTY, WHATEVER, WHETHER THESE MAPS ARE USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL THE DIRECTIONS PROVIDED FOR USING SUCH MAPS.

    THESE MAPS ARE PROVIDED AS A MEANS OF GUIDELINES, AND DO NOT FULLY REPRESENT THE ABILITY TO GUIDE YOU TURN-BY-TURN. PLEASE USE THEM CAREFULLY AND FOR GUIDANCE PURPOSES ONLY.

    @predator101, you are at a wrong place, it is not a "***" forum.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Oh i played around alot with garmin maps on my old hp voice messenger phone. I believe you have to rename the maps as GMSUPP01 and so on and place them in maps directory. Check pkmaps, u will find the instructions there.

    I had all kinds of maps including complete maps for pakistan, Dubai, KSA & UK.
