Thailand Map for Garmin


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with adding a Thailand navigation map to a Garmin Nuvi GPS device?

There is a shop in Tukcom that seems to be a Garmin dealer. A saleswoman there said she could add a Thailand map for 1500 baht. But I could not get any more information from her - what will happen to my existing map, whether she will put it on a SD card, etc.

If someone here has done it and knows the best way of going about it then perhaps he/she can post the information..

Why not download it at a better price: Thailand GPS Map


The price is $29.95 (I assume that is US) and then you have no issues with some clown deleting your other maps.

I have an older Garmin I use here and had someone in Tukcom wipe the old maps and install Thailand maps and the 1,500 baht price seems about what I paid from memory.  I had some older Thaliand maps on a SD card but they were out of date and I could not find a way to replace so did the Thailand over write install.  I keep this Garmin for use here and will update in a year or two as installer said he could do updates cheaper once they had installed the correct maps in the device.  It works well and you can search in Thai or English.  For me it was well worth the money as I believe phone apps require data packages to be running when using.  If you are a regular GPS user it is easy to just stay with that functionality.

Common sense is not very common.

If you have a smart phone I would recommend using Sygic instead of Garmin devices. The reason is that you can buy what they call a World package that includes maps of many countries, including Thailand. Sometimes it is on special which it is at the moment. You can get it for 30 Euros and has lifetime updates. Here is a link and the list of included countries:
