Limitations

Most residential roads and city streets in Japan do not have names. Only major highways and national roads are labeled by road number.

You may not find places by address. Searching by address is technically impossible using Garmin devices manufactured for United States and European market. The Japanese banchi address system is not based on the street number system like the US or Europe. Instead you may search and set destination by selecting city, point of interst, geogrpahic coordinate, browsing the map or in some cases by entering phone number.

Topographic map is generated from the mesh of digital elevation model. It is not a real trace of topographic map. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the contour line (it is roughly as accurate as 1:25,000 topographical map).
