Garmin Introduces Hunt View Maps


When you are hunting, there are a lot of things that you have to be aware of to ensure your hunt is legal and now, with Garmin‘s new Hunt View Maps, you’ll have one less thing to worry about. This series of preloaded microSD cards contain essential map data showing public vs private land so you don’t ever have to question where you are. The maps also contain satellite imagery, 24K TOPO mapping and routable roads. The maps are currently only available for Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah.

The maps are $80 each and are available for purchase on Garmin’s website now. Each map comes with information for the entire state and provides borders and boundaries for public and private land as well as rural roads for better navigation. The card also supports turn-by-turn navigation for rural roads to help hunters navigate in unfamiliar country.

Units that are compatible with Hunt View Maps include:

  • the Oregon 600 series
  • GPSMAP 62 series
  • GPSMAP 64 series
  • Montana series
  • eTrex series
  • Rino series
  • Alpha series
  • Astro series

Obviously, the device has to have an SD card slot of some sort to work with Garmin Maps.

“We are excited to offer our hunting consumers an easy solution to ensure safe and legal hunts,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales in a press release. “By simply inserting the Hunt View Maps microSD card into the units, Hunters can easily access the data they need without dealing with extra downloads, discs or even a computer.”


  1. I hope that Garmin adds other states to the list of choices.


    Can I have access to global digital topographical basemap inclusive of Nigerian and African location for geological and geographical mapping when I buy Garmin eTrex 20 handheld GPS? Do I have to pay extra to access such maps?
