Your Canon printer is always the perfect choice for quick, clear copies, so it is the perfect tool for printing the detail of a road map or a topographical map produced from your GPS device.

Many portable GPS units will include a USB cord for this purpose, but it if yours does not, you can pick one up at any computer section of your local discount store or office supply store.

Keep yourself safe, however, and avoid the frustrations that can come from technological breakdowns by printing out a hard copy of your data before you leave. By integrating your portable GPS device with your Canon printer, you have the best of both worlds.
