Free routable maps for Garmin

As from time to time there are questions about maps for different world regions I would like to start topic about getting them legally.

There are two links to places where you can get legal, free maps for Garmin GPS. They are routable, so can be used to drive when on vacations. Coverage can differ sometimes, as often there are non commercial projects created by users.

I'm now running CN North America NT 2015.10 map... and v.6.30 software. I'm running my new map off of a 8GB SanDisk Micro SD.

Linux Mint and Basecamp

Has anyone here installed Basecamp and used it successfully on a Linus OS? ...or other software provided by Garmin and what has been your experience? Inquiring minds need to know. I'm thinking of pitching Windows 10 and switching to Linux.

Airport icons in Basecamp

I know that I have asked this question before but I do not remember/cannot find the answer.

I have had to reinstall Basecamp and I have the map littered with "Airport" icons. Please, how do I turn them off??

Thanks Doug.

Waze and Nuvi?

Seems remotely possible to use BT connection to feed Waze traffic info to Nuvi ... though I realize bluetooth is pairwise and I'd really prefer to keep my phone paired with my car for hand-free conversation. But maybe a second/passenger phone?

Updating Garmin Nuvi 500 Using 4 GB Micro SD Card

I updated my Garmin Nuvi 500 today. It said that the memory only had room for a portion of the US, so I selected states nearest me. When I check the device, it shows that I have an optional 4 GB microSD card installed, but none of it was used. I would like to use the 4 GB microSD card and install all of the lower 49 states. How do I do that so it uses the optional memory card?

Kenwood/Garmin Routing?

I recently replaced the original radio in my car with a Kenwood 992, in part because I wanted to have Garmin nav while removing the dashboard/windshield/etc mounting. My 2450 with lifetime maps found a new home in my wife's car.

So far, it has met my needs, but now we are planning a two-week, mostly sight-seeing, trip which will not be a daily Point A to Point B routing.

Text To Speech On Garmin Nuvi 3597

I am just wondering how many people here use the Text To Speech functionality on their Garmin Nuvi 3597 or other navigator or devices. I spend some time with my wife's cousin recently and he is a big fan of using text to speech on his Android phone. I really had not been all that impressed in the past with Text To Speech, but it appears as if it has improved significantly since I last used it.
