Garmin Connect Brings Back Google Maps

Almost a year ago, I wrote about Garmin Connect switching to Bing maps. Well, it’s been a long time coming, but Garmin now allows users the option to choose between Bing or Google maps.

Garmin plays that up as, “This upgrade gives users more mapping options than ever before.” Really, this is how they should have implemented it from the beginning. And other services offer quite a few more maps. GMap4 and GPS Visualizer offer the most, and Garmin has much farther to go if they ever want to catch up to their competitors in this regard. Trimble Outdoors offers a decent selection of maps, also.
