    Default GPS Topo Maps of NZ (for Garmin 60CSx)

    Hi, I have a GPS (Garmin 60CSx) for which I bought US topo maps.

    I'll be moving to NZ, so I'd love to get topo maps for NZ as well.

    Which (Garmin-compatible) NZ topo maps do you guys recommend?

    Thanks!

    Do those do a good job with streets as well, or are they mostly terrain (and trail) oriented?

    (My US maps are "topo" rather than "street", but end up matching street lines pretty closely, and have all sorts of city-related points of interest like visitor centers, churches, etc.)

    Use them mainly for the great outdoors as have another Garmin for the city.

    When I have used it in town it seemed ok, you were where it said you where if you see what i mean but have never use for navigating around.

    I'd second the recommendation for Freshmaps - I've used them on my REI-bought (imported) Garmin etrex Vista HCx, but have used it exclusively for outdoors navigating.

    I ended up getting maps from Gary, and they're great!
