I'm not sure if you can use the mapsource from garmin to load maps, but you can definately dl the map upgrades from the website to your computer. I'm unaware of how you can load them to your GPS though after that.

The pilots would come back and show where the indicators showed below sea level flight paths.

You'd be on the train heading into A-Dam and the barges being pushed up through the canals would be higher than you in your rail car. Freaky looking UP to watch the boats.

when i first came across these maps a few months ago i was stoked too. but these are maps other people have made and posted them up. most of of maps in my area for colorado are not 100% useful. for example, the route calculations dont work or waypoints are in the wrong spots.

its always fun playing with new maps, but for something more reliable i would suggest using torrents and just download the real maps.

That sucks that your Colorodo maps aren't accurate because my Texas map works fine. Using torrents and downloading the actual maps created by Garmin would be illegal. This way isn't.
