Whats the best map chip for garmin?

It was a great christmas! I got hunting stuff! Including a Garmin 450 Oregon. I am curious what brand map packs you all have used and seem to be good for showing State/BLM or any other public ground to hunt?

For any Garmin that will take a chip(and the 450 will) its a real easy choice=The only one you will ever need (per state of coarse) Check out the LRH store with the link at the top of the page or this link.
I still get powerfull confused useing this chip and GPS but never lost

I'm really interested in what you come up with, hunting WY is BS without a GPS and map card so next time I plan on having something set up!!!

It still pays to do a little homework as the chip has tryed to send us down some privet roads. I just bought a Garmin 50LM this fall for the truck and through it in my pocket for walkabouts. Best $200($10050LM and $100 chip) you can spend if your hunting Wyoming or other areas with a lot of mixed property=The fence lines dont mean didly!!!!

I am told that some of the map chips have the land owners contact info (phone number) on them also is that true with these?

Yes the new plat chips have landowner (ranch) names on them along with the hunt area boundrys. Lot of info and piece of mind for $100, sure makes hunting new areas a LOT easier!

The Hunting GPS maps chip that is sold in the LRH Store is the only way to go if you are concerned with current private land ownership and public land boundaries. We've done a lot of research to make these maps the most accurate land ownership maps available. Other products you see out there just toss in a federal lands layer that does show public lands, but we have found there are many errors in the data they are using.

The best shot at avoiding the $120+ trespassing fines is to use the product that is trusted by game and fish agencies across the west - Hunting GPS maps
