HimalayanSTREET Routable – Car and Motorbike Navigation Map of whole Himalaya
Our vector maps for all major GPS receivers as well as for almost all Smartphones (Android, iOS, Windows) cover the whole Himalayan region. It’s a map with an amazing high level of detail, capable for navigating by car or motorbike through the country. This map includes a fully detailed street layer and was made for navigation purposes. To concentrate on routing, this map lacks all topographic details, trails and paths and is therefore a cost effective alternative to our very detailed topographic maps. But if you are looking for a map for trekking or any sport activities, please check for our topographic maps.
Because the map is fully routable, it can be used for turn-by-turn vehicle navigation, for example with a Garmin® Nüvi® GPS-receiver. Navigate from south India to Lhasa/Tibet – seamless routing through the whole area wasn’t so easy before!
All our maps are compatible with Garmin®-GPS-Receivers, which can display maps in Garmin® vector format. This includes all “On the Road”-Receivers as well as all “On the Trail”-Mapping-Handhelds. The maps could be used directly with your GPS-Receiver and can of course also be viewed on your computer with one of your favourite GPS-Software like Mapsource® or Basecamp® (available from Garmin® free of charge).
On your computer you can plan routes, look for sights or other waypoints (like hotels, cities, etc.) you want to visit or you can even prepare and reconstruct self-recorded tracks. The digital street maps are compatible with many software products which can read maps in Garmin®’s vector format, including Mapsource® and Basecamp®, Sendmap®, Touratech QV® and many more (please check description of your software and test our trial maps before purchasing). Please note that routing may not be supported my third party software.
Furthermore, our maps are also compatible with almost all Smartphones and Tablets running one of the major operating systems like Android®, iOS® or Windows®. We support a lot of Apps like Navitel Navigator, OsmAnd and Locus. Depending on the App you prefer, also the Smartphone maps are fully routable and can be used for turn-by-turn vehicle navigation.

The main source of our maps is the great OpenStreetMap project. This project maps the whole world and was started in 2004. Nowadays thousands of mappers work on this great project. In the past we created our own maps from sources like self recorded tracks and POIs, satelite images or available paper maps. In these days OpenStreetMap was nearly a blank map for the Himalaya region. Nowadays it is the best available map for the Himalaya region – it has an amazing high level of detail, even in the remote areas! We now included all of our own map data into the OpenStreetMap project and use OpenStreetMap as a basis for our own maps.
Furthermore, our maps include some additional data which isn’t available from openStreetMap. This includes a highly precise layer with digital contour lines (interval 20m) as well as DEM information for the whole region.
Free updates for 6 months included! Our street maps include updates free of charge for 6 month – so even if we publish a new update right after your purchase, you will get this update free of charge.
We offer maps for the whole Himalaya region. This includes countrywide coverage of India including Sikkim, Nepal, Pakistan, Bhutan and Tibet.
