Making your own trail maps for eTrex 20

7 posts in this topic

OK I have acquired a second GPSr really cheap, as a bonus it came with Garmin 100K TOPO maps DVD. I have gotten them loaded on my eTrex 20 VIA a 2 gig micro SD card. (A LOT easier than I thought it would be.)

 

Is there a way for me to over lay some trail maps on to my unit ?

 

TIA

Hello,Google gps file depot and check out the free maps on there. It's what Ive tried and it worked great with my garmin. They have a bunch of tutorials on there too.

There have been a bunch of threads on the forums here about that link. Try it out. Good luck

Also, Dave, you might check with your local geocaching group, if there is one. Here in the Bay Area, some folks have digitized a lot of local trail maps and made them available for downloading.

Check out Northwest Trails and My Trails at GPSfileDepot. These are transparent overlays that will show as trails only maps in BaseCamp, but will overlay your topo on your GPSr.

Or this for vector maps. Lots more work, but more flexible.
