USAGE DETAILS
<<<<<
In this section of the manual we would like to introduce you to the specifics of this map and to
help you get the most out of it. We are assuming that you already have read and are familiar
with your GPS receiver’s manual, where all the standard features of map products are
explained (e.g. searching, recording tracks, etc.). If you have any questions regardind your
receiver, please contact your dealer, visit our website www.karta.bg or ask for help in our forum
at the following address:
http://karta.OFFRoad-Bulgaria.com.
Here you will find the basic search categories in the map for the Garmin nüvi line of products. For
other models, respective search features are used. Both latin and cyrillic alphabets are
supported (your device has to support cyrillic as well to be able to use the product in cyrillic).
When you use latin alphabet, please refer to the transliteration rules provided below.
Searching for a city or residential district: “Where To?” > “Cities” > “Spell”. Enter the name of the
city/residential district without the specific abbreviations like “gr.”, “s.”, “kv.”, “zhk”, etc.
Searching for an address: “Where To?” > “Address” > “BULGARIA” > “Spell City” > “Enter
Street” > “Enter House Number”. The feature “Search All” in the city selection screen allows you
to search for an address in all cities in Bulgaria for which house numbers data is available.
Searching for a street: “Where To?” > “Address” > “BULGARIA” > “Spell City” > “Enter Street”.
In the field “Enter House Number”, please enter “1”.
Searching for a street intersection: “Where To?” > “Intersections” > “BULGARIA” > “Spell City” >
“Enter Street 1” > “Enter Street 2”. If an intersection of the two streets is found, you can view it
on the map by touching the “Show Map” button.
Searching for apartment block (variant 1): “Where To?” > “Points of Interest” > “Spell Name” >
“BL X Y” (spaces included), where X is a block number and Y is a name of a residential district
(e.g. BL 24 BOROVO). In cases where the block has a name instead of a number (e.g. block
“Murgash”), X is a block name and Y is a name of a residential district (or adjacent street name).
All specific abbreviations like “ul.”, “bul.”, “kv.”, “zhk”, etc. are omitted (e.g. BL MURGASH
VASIL LEVSKI). The results list will be sorted by proximity and separate entrances to the block
-2-
building (e.g. VH.A) will be provided where data is available. If Y is omitted, the results will
include blocks from all residential districts.
Searching for apartment block (variant 2): “Where To?” > “Address” > BULGARIA > “Spell city”
> Z (where Z is a city, e.g. SOFIA) > “Enter street” > Y BL (space included, where Y is a
residential district, e.g. DRUZHBA BL) > “Enter house number” > X (where X is a block number,
e.g. 21). Since variant 2 does not support searching for apartment blocks with a name instead
of a number (e.g. block “Murgash”), please use Variant 1 to search for such blocks.
Searching for Points of Interest (POI): “Where To?” > “Points of Interest” > “Spell Name” >
(select category). The result list will be sorted by proximity. If you’re searching for a POI without
knowing the category it belongs to, just enter its name in “Spell Name”, and searching will
include all categories, although the search itself will take considerably longer time. When
searching for lakes or dams, enter the name without specific abbreviations like “ez.” or “yaz.”
“100 National Tourist sites”, defined by the Bulgarian Tourist Union: “Where To?” > “Points of
Interest” > “Spell Name” > “BTS xxx yyy”, where xxx is site number & yyy is its name (e.g. 061
NDK). To locate the nearest sites, enter only “BTS”.
You can use “WiFi” as a keyword when searching for POIs to find restaurants, bars and other
public places that offer Wireless Internet connection.
Due to limitations of Garmin’s map format, custom POI types are not searchable using cyrillic
alphabet. If you cannot find a POI using cyrillic, try searching it by entering its name using latin
alphabet instead, by following the transliteration rules provided below.

Compatibility with different Garmin receivers.
Since this map incorporates the latest technologies from Garmin, it is possible that you may
have to update your GPS receiver software. You can do that by installing the program
WebUpdater, which is available for download at Garmin’s website:
http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
One useful indication that your GPS software needs updating is when
your receiver turns off by itself.
If you have a preloaded Garmin map in your device (e.g. City
Navigator Europe), we recommend that you disable it while
using OFRM Geotrade map to avoid any conflicts!
Offroad specifics of the map.
This map also includes unpaved roads and trails, which are visualized
with color-coded line stipple.

OFRM Geotrade 2015 Q1 variants
<<<<<
For your convenience we have created several different variants of the map. You can check
which variant you are currently using by entering the “Map” subsection of your GPS device’s
setting menu (for Garmin nüvi series go to “Tools” > “Settings” > “Map” > “Map Info” or ”Data”).

CITY VARIANTS
OFRM Geotrade CITY is targeted at customers that use GPS navigation in urban enviroments.
It is avaiable in three flavors: cyrillic alphabet, latin alphabet and an ML combination of both.
OFRM Geotrade CITY variants are optimized for best performance.
TOPO VARIANTS
OFRM Geotrade TOPO is the choice of the GPS enthusiasts that require GPS navigation both
onroad and offroad. TOPO variants offer additional data including color-coded offroard trails,
rivers and canals, vegetation profile coverage and Digital Elevation Model (DEM). These vaiants
also include integrated contour lines at 25 m interval, which can be switched on/off from the
GPS’ map menu. TOPO LT is a “lite” variant for GPS models with slower processors.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to limitations of the current GPS firmware, in all ML variants the custom
POI types are not searchable using cyrillic alphabet; also the search takes a bit longer on the ML
variants since all names are duplicated in both cyrillic and latin alphabets. All OFRM Geotrade map
products sold on SD memory card are preloaded with an ML variant of the map. If you have
purchased OFRM Geotrade map on SD memory card, we recommend that you install a variant with
either cyrillic or latin aplhabet support only, to avoid the forementioned limitations.
