Product Description




Backroad Mapbooks is proud to present Garmin-licensed GPS maps of Nova Scotia, compatible with Garmin GPS and Garmin Basecamp. The Maritime province of Nova Scotia sits in the Atlantic Ocean and boasts a unique culture steeped in Acadian, Celtic, Mi’kmaq and African histories. Known for the cultural hub of Halifax, the tourist hot spot of Cape Breton, and a world-renowned ocean fishery, Nova Scotia teems with opportunities for exploration. Whether hiking, biking, camping, climbing, paddling, fishing, skiing or ATVing, you will never be lost for things to do in Nova Scotia. With no portion of Nova Scotia farther than 56 km from the ocean, this province is a veritable Maritime landscape. Bask in the salty air of the Atlantic as you watch puffins, dolphins and whales from the shore; fish for salmon in Nova Scotia’s mighty Margaree River; or drive along rocky coastal topography into historical Mi’kmaq sites.

Explore the province with the guidance of these highly detailed maps and discover a world of road networks, nature trails, campsites, fishing spots and activity points-of-interest all across Nova Scotia.

Map Legend

Unique to the Backroad GPS Maps are our enhanced road classifications that help you distinguish the highways from the logging roads and the main roads from the side roads. This extra level of road classification helps you to know which roads can be driven in a car and which ones should be left to a four-wheel drive vehicle or ATV. In addition, we offer more recreational points and symbols than any other map source. From RV accessible to backcountry campsites, hiking to snowmobiling trailheads, fishing to paddling access points, we have your adventure covered. Our area classifications include mines and gravel pits, conservation and restricted areas, and a host of other features that help you to see where you can play

More Roads and Trails

No other GPS map source has as many roads or trails as the Backroad GPS Maps, and we have the statistics to prove it. In addition, you will find we offer better road classifications to help you distinguish main industrial or logging roads from those rarely travelled side or unclassified roads. Further, we separate trails into multi-use for hikers, bikers, horseback riders, cross-country skiers and more, as well as ATV/motorized trails and snowmobile trails. This information is continually updated, expanded and refined, so be sure to take advantage of our update program.

NS Road and Trail Highlights:

  • Close to 50,000 kilometres of Routable Roads including city roads, rural roads, and 3 levels of Logging Roads (Industrial, Resource and Winter Access Roads)
  • Close to 50,000 kilometres of non-routable roads including Old Logging Roads, Unclassified Roads, Alleyways, Leased and Private Roads and more
  • Over 1,850 kilometres of Multi-use Trails for hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, cross-country skiers and more

Product Questions

I was looking for some guidance or discussion on the choice of media type: micro SD vs. DVD. I would like to use this map on both my Garmin GPSmap 62stc and with Basecamp on my laptop (Windows 10). Which is the best media type for this situation? What restrictions are there with each media type?
Will this work on nav units in trucks?
Do the GPS maps with a SD card work in a stand alone device (smart phone, tablet etc.) without internet or wi-fi service but that is equipped with a location server?
How often are the GPS maps updated? You offer an option of paying for future updates over a 1,3 and 5 year period. The 3 year option guarantees a minimum of 3 "annual" updates.
Could you tell me what the difference is with the extra choices of 4, 8 or 16 gb SD chips. Are these in addition to the sale price and what extra is provided with each level of chip choice. In other words, what makes it better for me as a user for each level of chip set.
