Seychelles GPS Map

Well, you may remember some monthy ago me rambling some nonsense about cartography and mapping. Well I finally finished creating maps for the Seychelles for the three main islands (Mahé, Praslin and La Digue). It took me a lot of work, and the maps should be pretty detailed. I make them available for free, you can download the Illustrator files of the map, the maps I created in Mapwel (thanks to Carlos), which are in the .mpw format and the Garmin compatible .img GPS maps. Unluckily, at this point I only can upload img files for Praslin and Mahé, and they may look a bit weird depending on your Garmin unit, so you may want to buy Mapwel to edit it to your needs. They have been tested on my new eTrex Vista HCx. I personally bought the Seychelles GPS map from this site and edited them to my needs (added some details from my maps, like tracks and streams), but of course I can't make those file available. Otherwise they are probably still worth their price. I still maintain the copyright of the files below, if you'd like to use them, please send me a comment.

Did you know, why Tomtom One 3rd Edition most popular? Tomtom One is one of the Portable GPS Navigation System using the SiRFstarIII chipset to process data. The SiRFStar III GPS chipset is one of the best on the market, providing accurate fixes in tricky conditions, and a rapid Time to First Fix. It’s also not very expensive in volume. If accurate GPS receivers find their way into more devices – CSR’s products tend to integrate several technologies in one chip – then more people will own a device capable of providing data to OSM.

I imporetd your IMG Seychelles maps into my MapSource program and I have to say that this map is quite useless.
For example, I don’t see any difference between land and sea, becouse both parts are in blue. :(
