Canada’s Wild Heartland
Located in the Canada’s geographic center, Manitoba boasts a vast and wild landscape that is brimming with outdoor recreation opportunities. Over half of the province’s population lives in the capital city of Winnipeg, leaving the rest of Manitoba wide open for outdoor explorers. From the rolling prairie to the sprawling pine forest, ancient Canadian shield rock and Arctic tundra, there is much to discover here, whether on foot, by car, bicycle, ATV, snowmobile or kayak. And don’t forget the approximately 100,000 lakes that offer anglers some of the most exciting fishing action in the country, nor the abundant hunting ranges for everything from Canada goose to white-tailed deer.

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.

Boasting more roads and trails than any other GPS maps, our road tracking classifications allow you to easily distinguish main industrial or logging roads from rarely travelled unclassified roads. Access over 92,500 km of routable city and rural roads, with 3 levels of industry roads (forest service, resource and recreational) along with close to 50,000 km of non-routable roads including unclassified and private roads. Close to 2,500 km of multi-use trails are separated for use by hikers, bikers and horseback riders, along with over 16,000 km of ATV and Snowmobile motorized trails.
