Garmin adds China map coverage ahead of Olympics

Garmin_china_maps

Heading to the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing? Garmin has you covered. Two weeks ahead of the games, Garmin has released City Navigator China NT, though I have to wonder if the coverage is as good as is suggested by the map above.

Here are some coverage and feature details from Garmin:

  • PinYin-English language
  • Full country coverage with complete intertown road network.
  • Street level detail and point of interests for more than 980 cities, including Beijing, Shenyang, Shanghai, Tianjin, Qinhuangdao and Qingdao.
  • Nearly seven million POIs, including sport venues, restaurants, hotels, airports, train stations and much more.

Retailing for $119.00, the maps come on a micro-SD / SD card.

Amazon has them listed but doesn’t have them in stock yet, though as I post this, one third-party merchant has them.
