How to tell if my maps cover US Virgin Islands

 

I have a Garmin Drive (will have to look up exact model number when I get back to my car) with lifetime maps, and I was curious how to tell if my maps include US Virgin Islands or not. Anyone know? Thanks!

Probably

The "Full Coverage of North America" and "US & Canada" map include the U. S. Virgin Islands and a few others as well. Garmin discusses this at https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=68wodqUBkY7mu2l20K0qx8

Once you get your device model, you can insert it at the top of that webpage and get exact specifics.

Another way.

You could just pan the map on your device over to the Virgin Islands, then zoom way in to know if you are seeing complete street detail (zoom the map way out to world view, pan over to the Virgin Islands area, then zoom back in). It would probably work best if you set your device to simulation mode first. If you do that, after you zoom in on the Virgin Islands, you can try simulated navigation between two points. That would be definite proof that you have the map.

In short, if you have the lower 48 or 49 states, you will have the US Virgin Islands.

I also have National Parks v2 Map - not sure what that is, maybe detailed National Parks Maps?

I did try simulating the drive from STT airport to our hotel, and it seemed to work (I only watched it for about 30 seconds) so hopefully it works in real life!

If you loaded the map to the PC then Basecamp will show it.

"Foursquare" is a database to help users explore new and popular restaurants, stores, and more. See https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=6mnNDxSRvB51xbcjNNluq8.... for details.

"Parkopedia" is a map intended to assist in finding a parking place on some devices. See https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=m4Xk7zqeud5017NEYElhB7.

The way I check to make sure

The way I check to make sure I have what I want is to go on my PC look up an intersection or street with Google Maps (or something similar) in the area I am curious about, write down the address and zip code and then try to find it with the GPS. If it does and I can pan around in that area on the GPS then I'm good to go.

Foursquare / Parkopedia

I knew about Foursquare as my DriveSmart has it. Parkopedia? First time I've heard of it, so off I go to check it out.
