One of the main advantages of TwoNav devices is the ability to load the maps that best fit your needs.
The easiest way to get maps is through the TwoNav map store, where you’ll find high-quality maps of the entire world. Logically, these options will vary depending on the location:
- Topo mosaic maps from each country’s geographic institutes (France, Spain, Great Britain, Germany, etc.) provide a benchmark for high-quality topographic maps that cover the entire territory.
- For special-interest areas like the Pyrenees or the Alps, there are high-detail, high-quality maps that are frequently updated, like the maps from Alpina, Piolet, Fraternali and 4Land.
- Open Street Maps cover the entire world and are a good source for all kinds of information. They are also very affordable, since TwoNav only charges enough to cover the generation and maintenance costs.
- TomTom maps cover much of the world and lead the way in providing quality urban navigation.
Important: If you’ve bought a TwoNav device, it is sure to include maps from our store that you can get for free (more info).
There are two ways you can access the map store:
- The website www.twonav.com
- Map store built into Land (’buy maps’ button )
Note: The TwoNav app also features a map store, but the installation of these maps is often restricted to smartphones (more info).
Installing purchased maps
When you buy maps from the TwoNav store, these will be added to your myTwoNav space. From there you can easily install them on your computer, smartphone or GPS device. Check the tutorial on installing purchased maps to see the process in detail.
Installing other maps
In addition to the TwoNav map store, there are other ways to get maps, such as:
- Creating map sections online (+info)
- Loading maps into Land in various formats (ECW, SID, IMG...) that you got elsewhere.
- Scanning paper maps and calibrating them with Land (’Calibrate image’ function)
Once the map is loaded into Land, transferring it to the device is very easy:
1. Connect the GPS device to the computer. You’ll see it show up in the data tree.
2. Transfer the map to the device. There are two ways to do this
- Drag the map to the device in the data tree (keep the left mouse button pressed and drag)
- Right-click on the map and select ‘Send > Your GPS device’
Note: If the map you’re sending is protected (it’s a map bought from the store), you’ll be asked for the registration code. You can get it in your myTwoNav space.
