Before starting your bike trip, install for free the map.
If you are biking with a Garmin GPS or a compatible device, you can install the map (73 MB) of Northern Italian Lakes onto your device that can guide you on the roads around Lake Maggiore, Varese, Lugano and Como.
We downloaded it from the website Velomap.org. We uploaded it in our Garmin GPS devices, then we tested it on our roads. It correctly runs.
Install directly to GPS device without access to Garmin Mapsource or Garmin Basecamp. Simply copy the file roadie-LNIBT.img to your GPS into the /garmin folder or to SD card where it's available.
In this case roadie-LNIBT.img (57 MB) is in zipped or compressed format, you have to do the reverse procedure.
If you have a pre 2009 or older GPS device, the file ROADIE-LNIBT.IMG doesn't work. You have to rename the file (from ROADIE-LNIBT.IMG in GMAPSUPP.IMG) and to overwrite the old file GMAPSUPP.IMG in your GPS device.
