Detailed mapping software, such as City Navigator NT or Topo 24, on a DVD  format will contain many mapping segments within MapSource or MapInstall. A mapping segment is one selectable area of mapping that can be transferred to the device.

The below image shows four mapping segments. The segment selected to be transferred to the GPS is highlighted in pink.
