Hi - I've looked through the GPS discussions regarding Garmin (since I have a 705), am new to Touring, and hope to do the PCH from Seattle to San Diego this summer (this is my first big retirement project), and may try to do the North German Plain next summer from Calais to Warsaw with some excursions through some of the Baltic Capitals.
I get that the DVD for the USA allows for "off GPS" trip planning on my PC, which sounds like a good idea. But, before I order the DVD, I have a question about what can be loaded onto the Garmin. I fully expect I will be able to load the route as a course, and it will display nearby Way Points (any number of web sites and other programs support that as well). But I have never seen the added map detail from the other sites (I use GPSIES mostly).
QUESTION: Will I be able to load the entire map to Garmin (assuming my card is big enough), or will I just get the particular route information that I have built up?
I am sorry if this has been specifically answered already, and I missed it.
