Post subject:  Open Source Map Data for Garmin GPS

I recently purchased a Garmin HCx GPS. Like all Garmin units, the included basemap is lowsy and Garmin is quick to offer you their map data for extra $. However, there is really no need to pay for map data anymore. The data itself is public domain (our tax dollars at work), and our fellow citizens have been busy at work processing it all into garmin-compatible map files. Here is what I recommend for Washington State:

NW Trails Mapset (WA, ID, OR, MT, WI, AK, British Columbia and Alberta)
http://www.switchbacks.com/nwtrails/
(notable inclusions: Diobsud Creek trail and the south approach to Cutthroat Peak)

WA 40ft Contours
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/360/

NW Planimetrics (roads, park boundaries, peak and creek names, post offices, etc)
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/259/

You can find a lot more map data for around the world at the . Instructions on how to load the data to your garmin .

Thats great! I will definitely check this out. Should be an upgrade from my current maps (150' contours I think, not so great)

Thanks Ethan!

yep, the gpsfiledepot maps are great, but they don't allow you to do auto routing (in case you wanted to use them for driving navigation) and they're rather slow to refresh on the screen (i have a csx) - I wonder if the proprietary maps are faster? or is it a limitation of the hardware?

Just torrent the proprietary software. Free and possibly the best.

bumping the old thread because it's still useful:

i got a second-hand gps recently (of note: the marine version (76csx) has the same antenna & receiver as the garmin 60csx/62csx, weighs the same, floats, and was a lot cheaper when i looked on craigslist), and these maps are great, especially the nwtrails one.

haven't noticed any slowness on the refresh; maybe that's a hardware issue.
