  1. Exclamation Free maps for Garmin Mapping GPS

    If you are after some maps to upload to your GPS then try out ( LINK REMOVED BY ADMIN PLEASE READ LAST POST/REPLY) free set of maps that cover all of Australia. :

    When you install Tracks 4 Australia on your computer it will automatically add itself to any copy of Mapsource. You can also use a program called Sendmap or IMG2GPS to upload the Tracks 4 Australia maps to you GPS if you don't have Mapsource.

    Well Spotted. Thanks

  4. These maps are great and they just had an update to version 1.2.

  5. Another place that has downloadable maps for the GPS is mapcenter. Some are even capable of autorouting.

    There are actually quite a bit out there for Garmin units. Apart from the above and what Dooghan has produced, I am aware and have installed maps for New Zealand, MalSing (Malaysia and Singapore), Greece, Topo for Italy and UK, Antarctica etc. Do a Google and you'll find them.
    I'm lost....

    After downloading the Sydney maps at the location below I am unable to unzip them. Are they normal winzip files or am I missing something? Thanks.

    Cheers, Darrell

    Searchable towns add-on for Tracks4Australia

    FYI

    "Transparent Garmin MapSource map that can either be used on it's own on top of the GPS' basemap, or loaded at the same time as the T4A maps. Provides searching on towns

    http://graemewi.googlepages.com/auspoi

    370kb zip file with Mapsource installer

    Known issues:

    Not all 'town' POI are in there - T4A has more e.g. both have Ogmore, but only T4A has Wammutta"

    No!
    Do not rush in to try to install to your Garmin untill you have learnt more about it.

    Also, be careful what you read in old threads.
    The other posts in this thread are 05 & 06.
    T4A is now very out of date, not worth using.

  13. So what is available

    Hi all listening...

    At this stage I am not able to afford the $200+ for the Topo maps for my brand new Garmin EDGE 705 (I will fork out for these in a month or so). In the mean time, is there anything available ... I think the files need to have .gpx extension?

    cheers.
