I use Open Street Map + GPSFileDepot topos exclusively on our Garmin hand held hikers. Those involved with OSM continue to improve both the service & maps over time. Rather than downloading predivided sections or whole portions, a user can now specify what tiles he needs http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/.
In addition the server generates four different configurations available for DL:
* _windows.exe = Installer for Garmin BaseCamp/MapSource (Windows).
* _macosx.zip = Installer for Garmin BaseCamp/RoadTrip (Mac OSX)
* _gmapsupp.zip = Combined image for direct manual placement on the GPS device (gmapsupp.img)
* _tiles.zip = A zip file containing the tiles in the request, especially useful for Linux users (e.g. QLandkarte)
I made a regional sectional request yesterday at 4:49 PM and my selections were ready for DL by 7:18 PM. Well done OSM team & thank you.
My other favorite site.
