Get Geocaching App Style Trail Map on Garmin GPS


Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of the default trail map used on the geocaching app and website, with the prominent yellow trails and minimal clutter. Is there any way to download this map or certain sections of it onto my Garmin etrex touch 35? I know how to download maps onto it, but I can't seem to find this particular style or a comparable one. I know it's OSM data with some sort of style applied to it, but I don't know much about that process. Any help would be appreciated

I work with GIS and have created custom Garmin .img trail mapsets for most of New England using the OSM trail GIS shapefile data you see on the OpenCycleMap. So, yes, it can be done. Looks like you're in Canada. Maybe reach out to someone near you in the GIS field that also is a geocacher.
