HOW TO INSTALL FULL TOPO CONTOUR MAP TO THE GARMIN FENIX 5X
The Garmin Fenix 5x was announced back in January 2017 at CES and it promised mapping capabilities. The Fenix 5x has now been launched and after using the Garmin Fenix 5x the watch does lack detail in the maps in the US and for the UK & Europe the Fenix 5x does not come with contour maps
After investigation I have found a solution to install full colour detailed contour maps from a website called TalkToaster
These details are forests, landmarks and more importantly for hikers contours on the maps. If you checkout the video below I will take you through the key differences of the maps and show you how to install TOPO contour maps on the Garmin Fenix 5x.
I strongly suggest you watch the install video below and download the maps found in the blue box below
