Across the Bay of Fundy, home to the world’s highest tides, Nova Scotia retains a unique mix of Gaelic and Acadian heritage, with Cape Breton Island attracting outdoor explorers of all kinds to its vast and breathtaking wilderness. A short ferry ride away, Prince Edward Island bubbles with rural charm and boasts some of the east coast’s most scenic beaches. Further east, Newfoundland is home to centuries-old fishing villages that dot its rugged coast, while the fjords of Labrador offer unparalleled scenery for those who take the time to visit.

Unique Road Classifications
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.

GPS MAPS" it won't allow me to purchase unless I also pick a Micro SD Card to go with the "ATLANTIC CANADA - V8
GPS MAPS". I want the maps and to be able to install them on my BaseCamp and if a micro SD card with the maps comes with the purchase why am I required to buy this additional card. I want the topo maps and want to load them on to my computer and also put the preloaded maps into the slot on my GPS.
We dont offer a downloadable option just the SD version as a standard 8GB card size or an upgrade to 16GB or 32GB.
Once you receive the SD you can register it in your user account on our website and it enables the computer map download that can be installed in Basecamp on your computer.
The Package comes with 1 MicroSD card with the maps on it.
