I was recently asked about loading open source topo maps to a Garmin GPS (specifically a Dakota 20). Does anyone have any experience in obtaining/loading free maps?

I've been using maps from http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/ on my Montana with good results. I use the user-generated trail maps (My Trails), which are generally more comprehensive than Garmins built-in maps. You can search by state but here are the maps for MN: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/state/mn

EDIT: I just realized you're looking for topo maps, but the process is the same as far as installing them.

Is there a similar option for Magellan? Or will these work on a Magellan?
