Big Bend Topo

UPDATE Big Bend Topo – For those who request a working copy for Windows 8 and Windows 10 – I can now provide upon request. It does not require a complex installer, only copying files to a specific directory. Sorry for any delay….

Big Bend Topo Version 2.0  2.2 is available on request. More integrated POI’s and GPS verified positions of selected springs and other sites of interest.

Today I released Ver 1.7 of my 24k topo for MapSource, BaseCamp and Garmin GPSr’s. This is the 7 13th revision and is quite a mature edition. It is available by special request only. A screenshot from BaseCamp below gives an idea of detail and resolution. Click on the map for a larger version

I have inserted a Google Maps terrain map of the same area as a comparison

    Would you send me the Mac version, with a proper tdb file? The previous version won’t load on my Garmin with the bizarre error message “The map set is approximately 24.3 MB, but only 5397.8 MB is available in the destination.”, and according to some Googling:

    > It is typical error in mapsource when map have a wrong tdb file. I think that you modified a img but did not refresh a tdb file. Try copy only a img and typ files to new folder and then generate new mapsource kit with Gmaptool.

    Hope this helps.

    If not, perhaps just try resending me the current version of the file, maybe that’ll resolve the problem?

    Many thanks!

    Hi, Your topo map looks fantastic. If it is still available, I would love to have it available in planning an extended hike in Big Bend that I hope to take during the upcoming holiday season. Also, do you have a GPX file with the trails and POIs (especially the location of springs)? It would be great to have that to use with the Gaia GPS app.

    Many thanks for all your work in creating this map. Peter

    Hello. I would like to have access to your Big Bend topo map. My son and I will be in the park around the New Year.

    Thank you.

      Sorry for the delay in answering, I’ve been of the grid for a bit. With changes due to Windows 10 installation, I need to know what Op System you are running. I sent you an email.

    I am leading a troop of scouts on the outer mountain loop trail. This would be very helpful. Any chance of receiving a copy?

    We are heading to Big Bend for our first time in a week and some good maps of the trails would be great. Could you send me a link to them if you can?

    Hi there, I was browsing Big Bend Chat looking for map info and saw a link here 🙂
    I’ll be going back for my second time 4 wheeling this march and would like a map if possible.
    I’m testing out an app on my phone that uses topo maps. The app is PDF maps by Avenza. (both android and apple)
    Thank you

    (Now, on to exploring the rest of your site)

    My compliments on your web site — great design, great content.

    On our first visit to Big Bend a few years back I managed to get our Jetta Wagon TDI stuck in the sand going out to Dagger Flats. I am still not sure if my wife sees me as a fool for getting stuck or a hero for extracting it. 🙂

    Next spring we are planning to return with a 4×4 and look forward to seeing more of the park. I would appreciate a link to your Garmin topo so I can preload our 76csx with POIs and start to plan our hikes.

    Many thanks & best regards, Kevin

    That is a beautiful topo map! I am using a Garmin eTrek 20. Would that map would work on my device?

      I checked out the eTrek 20 specs, and there is no reason it shouldn’t work just fine…

    Hi Richard:

    I will likely be in Texas for work in October and/or November 2014. I intend to make a trip down to Big Bend National Park while in the area to do some hiking. Your maps look fantastic. Could you by chance share it with me? I upload to my Garmin 62st from MapSource using a Windows 7 operating system. Thanks!

    I plan to visit Big Bend later this year to drive some of the scenic trails in my 4×4 and have been looking for a good map to use with my Garmin GPSmap62S. It looks like you have put a lot of time and effort into making your map, and if you could provide a copy for my use it would be very much appreciated.
    I’m a new Garmin user, so any advice you can offer on how to install the map would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Hi BK,

    I’m taking my son and some friends from Germany and my Brittany on a Big Bend State Park trek — up onto Mesa de Anguila. Does your data set include that area? I don’t need the whole SP, just from Lajitas southward. I could really use a reliable detailed topo to keep us oriented to the terrain. It’s beautiful, but if I remember correctly from the last time I was there — in 1996, it’s minimally marked and sparsely traveled. Anything you can provide would be muchly appreciated.

    I’m using a Garmin eTrex 20, loading data to the unit through BaseCamp.

    Hello,
    Would you be so kind as to share your topo link with me as well? I visit the Bend at least twice a year and have only been using the map that came loaded on my Etrex 30. I would really like to improve on that.
    This is a nice site. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences.

    badknees,

    My wife and I are headed out tomorrow for some hiking in Big Bend for a whole week. We are looking for trail maps for my eTrex Legend Cx. I use MapSource v6.16.3 to load it, and I’m not very tech savvy. Is your Big Bend map still available upon request, and do you know if it would be compatible with my Legend Cx? If it is and if it is, I would be very appreciative if you let me know how I can get it. Your map appears to be the exact info I was able to find for the NPs in Utah, but have not been able to find for Big Bend. Thanks.

    Will

    Mr. Knees,

    I was curious about the origin of the topos in your BBC posts; then I discovered this…

    Wow, I would appreciate having that on MapSource tremendously.

    If it is still available, let me know if I need to make a PayPal contribution.

    All of your thorough posts and fotos are awesome. Thanks for enjoying it all enough to share.
    Regards, WetFeet.
