Want It Wednesday,Garmin Topo 24K Cards

Anybody familiar with the Garmin Edge 605,705 and 800, knows all about the micro map cards they use. The City Navigator card is nice, but the Topo 24K cards are really sweet, when you want to see lines of elevation and other topo features. The problem is, they can only fit so much info on each card, so if you want to have topo coverage of the U.S. you need 12 cards. You can see that on the first picture.

This is the case that comes with each map card you want. Now I can be pretty anal about little things like this and thought there had to be a better way of storing groups of these map cards in one case.

Low and behold, I found this little gem on Ebay. It's the same size as the above case holding one map card and adapter, but it holds six map cards along with two adapters. Now I only need two cases,not twelve cases, to hold all twelve cards. Granted, I'll probably never need all twelve cards, but I already have four that cover East of the Mississippi.Don't forget to check out Jez Andrews Blog here.

anal or not you are right! That's a much better solution. I wonder how many of them will ever see light of day though?
