Outdoor Maps+ in Europe

Unread post by JungleJim »

Does anyone know what map layers are available with Outdoor Maps+ in Europe? The Garmin info page
Spoiler
mainly lists layers that seem to be specific to the US?

So before shelling out 60 euros I’d like to get a better idea of what I will be getting.

Where are you located?

We are under the impression this service is only available in the US at this time.

I’m based in the Netherlands. The subscription can be purchased at the following page:

I asked the same question to Garmin support NL, and they referred to the same info page as mentioned in the first post and the page to order. But no additional info from them on what exactly to expect.

Ah ok, thanks for clarifying!

So it seems for Outdoor Maps+ is not really worth it for now when in Europe (compared to being in the US) as it only provides satellite imagery. Do you (or anyone else) know if it is better quality than what came with BirdsEye? Or is it the same and is a paid subscription needed now?

The Satellite imagery is still free on all devices. Same as BirdsEye so far as I can see.

No reason to buy this service at this time if you are not in the US.

Thanks. Hopefully Garmin will soon expand Outdoor Maps+ to Europe and provide some interesting map layers there as well!
