+BikeBill Posted April 26, 2014 Share Posted April 26, 2014 I recently purchased an Oregon 600 which I've been very pleased with. I didn't go for the 't' option as I hadn't heard too many good things about the 100K maps that came on it. I loaded the 600 with state topo maps from GPSFileDepot and they have been working well for me so far, though they don't seem to show many trails and aren't routable. I was thinking of purchasing a set of the 24K Garmin Topo maps. What I need to decide on is whether I want to get the Northeast maps on SD card or on DVD. The DVD would cost about $18 more but cover five more states - and they are states I sometimes visit (I didn't know that Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana were part of the Northeast, but if Garmin thinks they are I'm fine with it). So I wondered if there is any difference between the SD and DVD 24K topo map versions other than the states that are covered. Would there be a problem loading the whole DVD onto a micro SD card and putting it in the Oregon? Can these maps only be loaded on one GPS ever? Should I just stick with the free maps?
