    Has anyone used a TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25K microSD card in a Garmin Edge Explore 1000?
    I would like to know how clear the detail is on the 1:25K scale for hiking.
    Or would it be better to buy a dedicated GPS (I was thinking of GPSMAPS 66ST) with the TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25K microSD card in the bundle.
    Thanks

    As both of your choices are using exactly the same map, the only possible difference in how clear the map will be are the two unit's screens, both have 240 x 400 pixels and a 3 inch screen (the Edge is 1-2 milimetres bigger), so I would say the differences will be very small

    If I went for a dedicated device which is the better unit, a GPSMAPS 66ST with a TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25K microSD card or a Satmap Active 20 Platinum Edition/
