If you read our review of the Garmin Colorado 400t last month you know the latest Garmin GPS units allow you to load custom basemaps in KMZ format. Today we’re stoked to announce that we’ve created KMZ formatted files for all our Colorado trail maps (158 and counting) and are working feverishly to get the other states completed as well.
The cool thing about this new map format is that it’s not just for Garmin GPS units. We suspect it will only be a matter of time before you can view and navigate KMZ files on your iPhone and other smartphones (we’ll keep you posted). No smartphone or GPS? If you have Google Earth (free download) you can view KMZ files like the map of Captain Jack’s above and there are other desktop programs that are KMZ-friendly as well.
We’re stoked about the latest trail mapping tech and are committed to giving you options for using your singletracks map data. Stay tuned for more this spring!
