Game Management Units

New Mexico Department of Game & Fish, Game Management Unit borders are included. See your exact position relative to a GMU border in the field, then use your GPS to measure how far away the border is from your current position.

The GMU borders are at the 1:24,000 scale of the maps. That's equivalent to having a single border-less paper map 980 x 720 inches or 82 x 60 feet. Significantly more precision than any PDF print or text description. All border lines are labeled with the adjacent area numbers, for quick reference.

The default GMU line is nearly invisible. However, changing from default TYPE to the GMU TYPE and the line becomes bolder. You can have your cake and eat it too. Simply refer to the Colors page to learn the simple process to switch from default to the new bold GMU line style.

Note to Mac Users:

The customizable GMU line style is only available if you first install the maps to a Windows PC, make the Type file change and then convert those GMU modified maps to Mac format, using Garmin MapConverter. The downloaded/DVD Mac maps will only have the default GMU line style.

This is the default, near invisible, GMU line style:

This is the bold GMU line style, notice how the dry wash below the 6400 foot elevation is almost obscured by the GMU line:
