Advanced maps on etrex 20

Recommended Posts

I just got the garmin etrex 20 and got premium membership. One of the main things i've noticed about the etrex 20 is that it has very low resolution maps. So I guess my question is how do I get it so the gps has higher resolution maps. (It doesn't even show any main roads on my map.)

You are correct the basemap is very sparse. Good (many are routable) maps are available free at http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/.

I got City Navigator for my 20 and it works great for caching and detailed driving directions when looking for a cache. If I remember it was about 70 bucks.
