Boyd’s Map of the Pines HD

This map will soon be discontinued and will phase out all downloadable maps during 2021. They offer a poor experience on Garmin devices due to restrictions the company has placed on their “custom map” format which constrains them to only one zoom level of limited size. And Mobile Atlas Creator/Java installation is just too difficult and problematic. To use your Android phone or iPhone as a GPS with Boyd’s Maps (and more), install the free boydsmaps web app, currently available in beta. Just go to on your phone to get started!

An all-new version of the original Map of the Pines, first released in 2008. Covers Southern New Jersey with portions of Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia and Wilmington. Zoom even closer in the HD coverage area for extreme detail.

Many hand-traced features not available anywhere else, such as 1500 miles of HD unpaved roads,  600 miles of powerlines and over 14,000 buildings. 

Landcover shading shows forest cover and areas of high intensity development. Points of Interest include schools, churches, cemeteries, hospitals, airports, highway exits, sand pits, summits, stream gaging stations, NGS benchmarks and historical features. Icons indicate route numbers on secondary roads.

Unlike previous versions that were only compatible with Garmin, this new universal version uses the free open source Mobile Atlas Creator program for compatibility with MacOS, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS and dedicated GPS units. An all-new 29 page tutorial with almost 100 illustrations will get you up to speed quickly with Mobile Atlas Creator.
