More free topo maps for Garmin receivers


UPDATE: I’ve posted a more comprehensive set of resources for free topo maps for Garmin GPS receivers.

The list of states for which there are free high-resolution, Garmin-compatible topo maps continues to expand. The following are currently available:

These maps should work on any nuvi or mapping handheld made by Garmin. Installation instructions are given on each of the above pages.

Many thanks to dfg and Dan AKA Oz for all their efforts making these maps and for releasing them to the public. If you use these maps, please consider making a donation to them, which you can do from any of the maps’ download pages.

  14. Rich,
    Do you have a topo map of the Banff National Park area in Canada? I can’t download the one by Ibycus and that’s the only one I can find!

  15. Brent Larson says:

    Any maps available for Washington, specifically the Gifford National Forest and pacific crest trail area?

    Do these maps work for all Garmin GPS? I’m looking for one to work on my nuvi.

  16. Try:

    The Nuvi can display topo maps, but depending on the model, they may not look so good. You will just have to try them and see… since they’re free you don’t stand to lose much. 🙂
