Combining city and backcountry navigation with enhanced outdoor recreation information, this product amalgamates all of BC into one Backroad GPS Map.
From the islands of Haida Gwaii, where the wilderness rules and a strong First Nations culture maintains an unbreakable bond with nature, to the rugged peaks of the Rocky Mountains, world-famous for their alpine majesty, BC is a land of extreme beauty. In the western part of the province, the Coast Mountains rise right out of the ocean, their slopes covered in lush temperate rainforest, while moving inland brings you to the sweeping Chilcotin steppe, giving way to the vast and powerful backcountry of the north. To the south, the Okanagan is known for its many beaches, lakes and desert-like landscape, while further east the Kootenays are home to one of the world's richest and most vibrant mountain cultures. No matter which corner of the province you are exploring, BC is as exciting a destination as you can find anywhere in the world.

Unique to the Backroad GPS Maps are our enhanced road classifications that help you distinguish the highways from the logging roads and the main roads from the side roads. This extra level of road classification helps you to know which roads can be driven in a car and which ones should be left to a four-wheel drive vehicle or ATV.
In addition, we offer more recreational points and symbols than any other map source. From RV accessible to backcountry campsites, hiking to snowmobiling trailheads, fishing to paddling access points, we have your adventure covered. Our area classifications include mines and gravel pits, conservation and restricted areas, and a host of other features that help you to see where you can play.
Boasting more roads and trails than any other GPS maps, our road tracking classifications allow you to easily distinguish main industrial or logging roads from rarely travelled unclassified roads. Access close to 200,000 km of routable city and rural roads, with 3 levels of industry roads (forest service, resource and recreational) along with over 485,000 km of non-routable roads including unclassified and private roads. Over 41,000 km of multi-use trails are separated for use by hikers, bikers and horseback riders, along with close to 40,000 km of ATV and Snowmobile motorized trails. Trails are updated and expanded with the help of government agencies, off-road clubs and customers who contribute their own data.
