In last week’s Waypoints, I issued a challenge to Free Geography Tools’ Leszek Pawlowicz to check out Open Street Map (OSM) on a Garmin handheld, now that OSM has incorporated U.S. TIGER data. He good naturedly accepted the gauntlet and posted his findings. The screen shot at left shows a sample.
I’m disappointed that using OSM data in this way doesn’t allow for autorouting. Still, for those of you with Garmin handhelds that don’t want to lay out the bucks for MetroGuide or City Navigator, this is another option.
