Garmin Colorado 300 and go4awalk.com maps

Q. Hi,

Can I download maps from go4awalk.com onto my Garmin Colorado 300?

Loris Cronin, Cardiff


A. The Garmin Colorado 300 cannot display Adobe Acrobat pdf (or gifs, jpegs, tiffs or any other generic image file) so you cannot upload go4awalk.com walks into it. The only GPS enable devices that can display Adobe Acobat files are some of the latest GPS enabled Mobile Phones (e.g. The Apple iphone).

You can upload GPS Waypoints from go4awalk.com into your Garmin Colorado and, since you will always be carrying a paper version of our route description and the appropriate Ordnance Survey Map for your walk (so you can still get home safely if your GPS fails for some reason) this is all you need.
