Mapsource mapping for the stans and Mongolia?

Hi all,

Just a few days to go now before the big trip and still can't find any usable mapping for the stans (got kazakhstan) or mongolia, suitable for use with Mapsource.

I know that if anything exists it's not going to be all that useful, but still - Any ideas?

Cheers!

Not 100% sure about the Stans but the smellybiker map works for places like Mongolia and Russia so I'm guessing that it will work there as well. Have a great ride. Smellybiker's Wanderlust Worldmap • Index page.

Smellybiker's World Map East (routeable) if the one that covers (amongst other) Mongolia. You can buy this on line with Paypal.
Alternatively, you can use Garmin's World Map but it's a little thin on detail.
Either way , I'd suggest you take paper maps and compass IMHO.

Road maps of Mongolia are as useful as deodorant...

Just know the big towns names...the distances...and its all good.
