Garmin adds China map coverage ahead of Olympics


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.
