Want Coverage of Newfoundland - which Garmin maps do I need?

Metroguide USA
and another of US Road and Rec. Neither has maps of Newfoundland. Do the newer versions come with that info? or do i need to purchase a Canada specific mapset?

TIA

The new City Navigator series has Newfoundland coverage. Go to the Garmin site and look at samples to see if they have what you want - and to make sure they will work with your GPS.

This plus City Nav and I had all I wanted.

yes you need a special canada only disk for the maps of canada from garmin (for roads and topo) it should be included in north america 2009 and 2010

I rode the TLH late June of 2008 and had Garmin City Navigator NT 2008 on my Garmin Zumo 450. Virtually everything was available for me touring the Canadian Maritimes(New Brunswick; Nova Scotia; Prince Edwards Island; Newfoundland; Labrador....). Nothing further was needed. AS for paper backup maps, YES I carried the better Canadian paper maps. Don't forget to change your speed/odometer to km(kilometers) on your GPS when entering Canada.
