Garmin GPS Maps

Note: Department GPS map offerings will be discontinued in 2022.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department GPS maps on this page were originally designed for staff use and were constructed to work on several varieties of Garmin GPS models. The Department recognizes that these maps may not work for all models and expects end users to proceed at their own discretion.

The Department does not provide support for the GPS hardware, software or GPS maps. Contact your Garmin provider or use the Garmin support website for assistance.

Data used to create the North Dakota Game and Fish Department GPS maps are subject to frequent change, and are compiled from a variety of sources, data standards and scales.  Users should be aware that the data may contain spatial inaccuracies, does not represent a legal land survey and may not be appropriate at certain scales.
