PCT Custom Maps

By Robert Bennett, Pickatrail.com

What you need to know about the Pacific Crest Trail custom maps and your handheld GPS device:

  1. There are 257 Pacific Crest Trail custom maps (KMZ files) containing 486 total map tiles (custom map images) in 46,131,157 bytes. This is thousands of miles of trail on hundreds of custom maps, so you need to consider the capabilities of your GPS device.
  2. Garmin handheld GPS devices enable and disable custom maps as a group.
  3. The maximum number of custom map images that you can load in Garmin handheld GPS devices at once is typically 100 for supported devices. Exceptions: Montana (500) and Oregon 600 series (500)

This means that if you download all 257 custom maps (486 total images) to a handheld GPS device that can load 500 images then you can enable all 257 custom maps and start hiking. However, some handheld GPS devices (such as the Garmin eTrex) can load only 100 custom map images. If you're planning to hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail and your GPS device can load only 100 custom map images then you may want to consider saving all of the custom maps to six different Micro SD cards and switch the cards as you complete sections of the trail:

Micro SD #1: 93 images
PCT001T.kmz - PCT054T.kmz
(U.S. and Mexico Border to CA Hwy 58, Near Tehachapi)

Micro SD #2: 97 images
PCT055T.kmz - PCT103T.kmz
(CA Hwy 58 Near Tehachapi to Carson Pass, Near CA Hwy 88)

Micro SD #3: 80 images
PCT104T.kmz - PCT144T.kmz
(CA Hwy 88 to Girard Ridge, Near CA Interstate 5)

Micro SD #4: 89 images
PCT145T.kmz - PCT184T.kmz
(CA Interstate 5 to Odell Lake, Oregon, Near OR Hwy 58)

Micro SD #5: 43 images
PCT185T.kmz - PCT207T.kmz
(OR Hwy 58 to OR and Washington Border)

Micro SD #6: 84 images
PCT208T.kmz - PCT257T.kmz
(OR and WA Border to U.S. and Canada Border)

Some hikers may not need or want all of the custom maps. You don't have to download all of the custom maps, just be aware of the number of images in each custom map and the capabilities of your GPS device.
