Product Description


The size of a small, flat calculator, the eMap contains a 12-parallel-channel global positioning system receiver and weighs a mere six ounces. Even with its compact style, the eMap boasts an extra-large display for showing more map data and the same power you've come to expect from Garmin hand-helds--even while operating for up to 14 hours on two AA batteries.

The eMap features an internal base map containing information on North and South America including state and country boundaries, lakes, rivers, streams, airports, cities, towns, coastlines, and U.S., state, and interstate highways. In addition, the eMap provides exit information for the federal interstate highway system. With the eMap, you will know when you are near services such as food, lodging, and service stations.

The eMap is compatible with Garmin's line of downloadable MapSource CD-ROMs including U.S. Roads and Recreation, WorldMap, U.S. Topo, and MetroGuide U.S.A. When paired with the MetroGuide U.S.A. CD-ROM, the eMap has the ability to look up address and telephone number information for nearby services and points of interest. The eMAP will store 8 or 16 MB of downloaded CD-ROM information at a time depending on the size of the cartridge you use in the unit.

The deluxe package contains a PC interface cable and an extra blank 8 MB data card. Designed with all types of users in mind, this unit will take you from the car to the hiking trail and beach without missing a beat.

I have used the eMap on several driving trips along the east coast and found it easy to use and the base map fairly accurate. BUT, I purchased the Roads & Recreation CD-ROM and found that maps in the North Carolina region are over 5 years old. I contacted Garmin and they confirmed that no updates have been published and they have no policy regarding providing updates to the maps! While I like the functionality of downloading more detailed maps into the GPS, investing $100 in obsolete maps and a company who doesn't seem to view this as a problem bothers me.

About 3 months ago I bought myself a Garmin eMAP gps and I amstill amused by it. It really amazes me how I can be holding a toolabout the size of my hand that could take me around the world with close to pinpoint accuracy. To think, only 5 years ago, this would be impossible without severe chart plotting and hours of time (GPS time: about 15 seconds).
The eMap in my opinion is better than the GPS III+ in a couple of ways. The eMap is cheaper, has more memory, and is more useful for the average person. Features include: 2AA battery compartment(up to 14 hours operation), high-resolution display, illuminated light background, 500 personal waypoint storage, 12-parallel satellite capability, powerful antenna, splash resistant, highly detailed basemap, and a satellite status page. This GPS comes with other nice features, but ill let you play with those.
If you do end up purchasing this item, I would highly recommend getting the leather carrying case for it. It is not too expensive and will prevent the GPS from getting scratched or damaged.
The eMAP is ideal for driving. Its basemap includes highways, freeways, off/on ramps, buildings, *residential streets, beaches, coast lines, and much more. If you plan to use this gps primarily for driving, I would also recommend getting the "MapSource Roads and Recreation CD" to add even more detailed info on the GPS (however, it is quite expensive at about $100).
Overall Evaluation: A Great well-rounded capability, durable, fun to use!
*= only with the MapSource CD END

Purchased about 3 weeks ago and have used it alot. I liked the keys on the bottom of the unit, you can use them and see the screen at the same time. The detail is nice but it requires you to purchase an 8mg card and download an area's detail and then it will give a fairly detailed street level info for a given city or region. Forget trying to load more than one city or region at a time with the 8 mg card. City like Houston takes up the entire card's memory. Really like the automatic tracking feature, and its "track back" feature. The instruction book is not all that good, I have found some features are not very clearly explained in the material. But in all, for the price, and for my frequent road trips (200 -400 miles) is a nice tool. One other thing, the GPS comes really with nothing. Recommend the buyer also by the carring case, at least the 8mg card, PC cable (if you buy the softeare for detail downloads), and car battery charger.

The Emap is simply the best personal mapping GPS available.The screen is very legible and the base map is fairly complete withmost Federal and State highways. It also shows services available at interstate exits such as gas, food, and lodging.
Emap supports downloadable maps, but you must get the propriatary Garmin software which is pretty expensive. To get the most out of the Emap, you really need to get either the Roads and Recreation or the MetroGuide software. Both provide street level detail for the entire U.S. including all city streets and local roads.
The Roads and Recreation maps are downloaded on a county by county basis. You can select up to 99 counties to load, although the 8MB cartridge can only hold about 40-45 counties. The MetroGuide software downloads entire 8MB sections, so you can only use one section at a time. If you do much traveling outside your area, you will need extra cartridges for additional MetroGuide areas.
MetroGuide does offer address finding and area points of interest that Roads & Recreation doesn't, but for most people, R&R will be enough.
You owe it to yourself to check out the map viewer to see which software package you need. The map viewer shows exactly the information that will be downloaded to the Emap. Keep in mind that only one section at a time can be downloaded from the MetroGuide unless you have the 16MB cartridge.
Overall, this is an excellent map unit for travel use. It doesn't offer route planning, but you can manually set up waypoints along your route and it will tell you which direction they are and when you are getting close. I just wish that other mapping companies' maps could be downloaded rather than depending on the pricy Garmin software.

As someone without a built-in sense of direction - well, ok, I've got one, but it's only right about 50% of the time - I can honestly say that the E-Map is a really useful tool. There are things that could be better, but what you get in small device is pretty amazing. I've been using the E-Map on my motorcycle during the commute to and from work and it's given me a lot more confidence to go explore alternate routes (like when traffic is heavy). I've always been one to cruise around neighborhoods and side streets anyway, and there's something reassuring about having that big arrow on the E-Map pointing in the direction you should be heading.
Here are some things I've learned that might be helpful:
- The E-Map is smaller than I thought it would be. It's closer to the size of a TV remote control than a palm pilot. More elongated, and not very thick. It's very comfortable in the hand, and easily fits in a normal jacket pocket.
- It's more solid than I was led to believe in reviews that I've read. When you pick it up, it's got a nice "heft" to it. Definitely no loose electronics rattling around inside it or anything like that. Solid, professional feel.
- The built-in road data, while pretty cool in principal, didn't have the resolution that I'd hoped. While the larger streets are shown, most of the neighborhood streets I use were not.
- Garmin's handlebar mount does work, but it's not the most solid thing in the world. For a bicycle, it's fine. For a motorcycle, be sure to mount it out of the wind and put the lanyard around something just in case. (that being said, I haven't had any problems with it yet).
- As another poster mentioned, battery life isn't so great.
