Premium Outdoor Map

Do you have difficulties reading maps? Do you find printed maps too cumbersome? Falk is noted for having more than 50 years' experience of producing high-quality maps.

We know which partners to use to produce the best outdoor maps for cycling and hiking, how important it is to have detailed presentation and comprehensive coverage with roads, cycle paths, forest tracks and hiking trails.
This is why our Premium Outdoor maps undergo extensive tests before they are used on our Outdoor navigation devices.

The maps show you at all times where you are, where your destination is AND above all how to get there. And they do all of this however you want them to:
on foot or by bike, on sporty routes or flat roads, on cycle paths or off-road. Each tour is different, Outdoor maps from Falk know (almost) all routes to your destination.
Clear audible and visual commands tell you which exit to take at junctions, just like with a car navigation device.
You are told the time and distance to your destination at all times. The integrated altitude profile tells you what challenge lies ahead.
Even if you take a wrong turn, the map quickly tells you how to get from there to your destination.
Got lost, incorrect turning, lost your bearings? - Not a problem, we at Falk Outdoor will help you!

 



The Premium Outdoor Map is available for the following countries and regions:
Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Majorca, Transalpine, Benelux and Northern Italy.

My route

The Falk Premium Outdoor map tells you how to get to your destination. But LUX also helps you to get to the destination your way!

iGPX

We guide you on your route to your destination, even away from the road and path network - including constant spoken announcements or beep navigation at junctions!

Tracks downloaded from well-known internet platforms such as GPSies.com offer a large number of tracks which you can navigate along with our outdoor navigation devices. With iGPX we are now making this even easier and more straightforward! For each track which you play on your device, you consistently get spoken announcements or beep instructions at junctions - even if the track runs on routes that do not exist in the map material. With the real-time altitude profile you will also know exactly what to expect next and how you should conserve all your energy.

 

Advanced GPX track navigation

This intelligent function checks whether your GPX track (e.g. from the internet) runs on routes on the Falk Outdoor Premium map.

If they match, you are then given visual and audible turn-off instructions at junctions - telling you which way to go. Information such as the distance or time to the end of the track is also available to you at any time.

 

Paperless geocaching

Geocaching is a modern treasure hunt using a GPS device (also used to be known as a "paperchase").

On the internet you will find in the largest geocaching community "Geocaching.com" over 1.75 million hidden caches worldwide (correct as of June 2012, number increasing rapidly) with tips on where to find them. With the LUX you can transfer your geocaches directly to the device, including all tips and the comments from other geocachers - paperless without needing to print anything out. This turns any Sunday walk into an exciting experience.
