Any Map coverage for guatemala?

 

I am looking for either Garmin map coverage for Latin America (guatemala) or another brand that would have it for a missionary friend. I've had a hard time finding much. There's some third party maps for Garmin (who knows if they're any good) I see a map you can purchase from Garmin for Mexico, which would help as he travels through there.

I even read about another brand that sells gps units in Latin America, but can't find out any details.

Any help would be appreciated

I typed "guatemala garmin map" into Google and this was the first hit http://www.gpstravelmaps.com/guatemala.html

Seems to be exactly what you need.

Thanks, I did see this site. The map detail looks good, but it was a bit sketchy on details of installing into the Garmin unit. Not sure if it was an .img file or had an .exe to automatically integrate it into Mapsource. Since it would be for someone else with little experience with gps issues, I hoped it would be more detailed about the installation. I could email them and get more info. I agree, it seems to be the best answer along with possibly the next post. Thanks for the responses.

Download the one labeled "Download installer". It will download an EXE. Run the EXE file that you download and the maps will be installed into your MapSource program. Then you can send them to the GPS unit from MapSource.

Note that you will have to pan your map to Guatemala to see them. In the drop down list in MapSource, the map will be labeled "Digital Chart of the World - North America", but the Guatemala details are there.
