Dec 11, 2009 gps navigation
Jamaica’s first GPS navigation map data was just made available as JAMNAV by Mona GeoInformatics Institute of the University of the West Indies. It includes about 10K miles of roads and 15K points of interests.
The map data is available on Garmin devices since the MGI worked as the local developer for the company figuring out complex intersections, one way streets, and parochial roads.
You can pick up a Garmin unit from Avis at Kingston or Montego Bay airports which are already loaded with the JAMNAV map data. Renting a car is optional. No seriously. You can just rent the GPS navigation unit.
