where to buy garmin maps



Garmin maps sold on sd card are paired with the sd card; you cannot copy them to use them on a Garmin device without a sd card slot. If you want a Garmin Topo on your wearable, you have to buy the download map version.


The good news is that if you own a Garmin GPS device, there's a way to get free Garmin GPS maps. And in most cases, the free maps are much better than the expensive Garmin maps. I'm a big fan of Garmin GPS devices, but I always found it disappointing that they charged extra for maps. Garmin doesn't publicize it, but most of their GPS units are setup to take any maps in the correct format. Here's how to get and install these free hiking maps in an easy, step-by-step process.


In retrospect, I think the price for Garmin maps is too high. There are some as good, or better, alternatives available at no cost online. This product is overpriced for what it is. I would recommend other software. - Garmin Map Review on Amazon


So let me start by saying there are a lot of ways to get free Garmin GPS maps, and a lot of different methods to install them. You could create whole websites devoted to the subject, and people have (see below). This article focuses on installing my favorite free Garmin GPS maps for hiking in the USA, using OpenStreetMaps. If these don't work for you, try exploring the other map services that I have listed below.


OpenStreetMaps are the Wikipedia of maps. The public contributes to, confirms, and edits the data on the map. This curation goes for hiking trails too. The maps are regularly updated, and over the last few years have seemed the most accurate in my experience. You can even become a contributor if you like.


First off, the Garmin unit you have might have maps already. You probably know this, but if you're shopping for a GPS, go to the Garmin website page for the unit. If it maps come with the unit, it will say it has "preloaded topo maps."


If you already have a unit and want to find out if these free maps work, go to the unit's page on the Garmin website, and then check out the "specs" section. There is a line for "ability to add maps," if you have a check there, you're good to go.


That's it. The maps are on your computer. If you're not already using the free Garmin Basecamp tool, I highly recommend getting it. It will allow you to browse maps, create tracks, and is invaluable in planning hikes.

You could download (stolen!) commercial Garmin maps for older Garmin devices (for example Garmin Dakota), but it is not easy to use them in the Garmin devices such as the Garmin 64 series and newer.I work with the Garmin 64s device. I bought some commercial GPS maps but mostly I work with free map alternatives. This post deals with my favorite GPS map websites.
