I hope Garmin’s new subscription-based mapping service isn’t the start of this trend

Amid all the excitement surrounding the launch of the Garmin Forerunner 965 and 265, two new additions to the lineup of Garmin’s best watches, another major Garmin feature was introduced this week. Released on Tuesday, February 28, Outdoor Maps+ is a new service from Garmin available for select Garmin premium watches in the US only – for a price.

This feature provides a series of “real-time maps” and advanced, up-to-date topographic maps for all 50 states, displaying information not typically included in current Garmin map setup. Details drawn from the U.S. government’s National Hydrographic Dataset, such as maps of inland lakes, streams and wetlands, are ideal for those looking for the best fishing spots.
