- The responsive touchscreen and fast map redraws make it easy to use right out of the box, with familiar Garmin features like nearest airport, VNAV, and direct-to navigation. Powerful hazard alerts The aera 660 does a lot more than just moving maps and flight plans, with automatic alerts for nearby terrain, obstacles and traffic – even audio.
These downloadable map files represent a mashup of OpenStreetMap data overlayed with Trailforks trails and some useful POIs (Parking, TTF, and Bike Shops). Each region is compiled into Garmin's native basemap IMG format. This enables the map to contain thousands of trails using our custom theme. We have tested them on the Edge 800, Edge 810, and Edge 1000, but have heard of them working on other devices that are basemap enabled.
To install, you must first have ample free space on the device or use your own MicroSD card. The Garmin Edge devices will load any file with the '.img' extension if it exists in the 'Garmin' folder on the root of the devices file system. Basically this means the device is a USB Mass Storage device with a file system that looks like this:
Download the desired region and copy the .img file into the /Garmin directory on the device. Or into the /Garmin directory on the Micro SD card. Once you turn on your device, you will probably need to disable other maps that may be covering the Trailforks Map.

Adobe is changing the world through digital experiences. We help our customers create, deliver and optimize content and applications. Garmin’s powerful flight plan and procedure tools come to a portable GPS with the aera 760. Enter a departure and destination airport, then add IFR airways, instrument approaches, SIDs, or STARs. Of course, direct-to navigation is always one touch away for quick changes in flight.Video demo showing how to load a custom map onto your Garmin Edge device.

From this site you can download for free Garmin software and device compatible maps of various countries of the world, which have been generated from OpenStreetMap data and are distributed under the Open Data Commons Open Database License, which allows you to copy, distribute and modify the data.
All maps can be installed onto your PC or uploaded to a Garmin GPS or navigator, enabling you to plan your routes from your desktop and then use the same maps on your device. All maps are routable, even tracks, and a topographic version (with contour lines) is also supplied. A version for trucks, avoiding the use of routes not suitable for such vehicles, is also available.
OpenStreetMap is a collaborative project which aims to create a map of the Planet with free geographic data open to anyone who wants it. Data (roads, POI's, rivers, etc.) is submitted by thousands of volunteers either collected with gps receivers from the areas visited or drawn using aerial imagery. Everyone can participate in OpenStreetMap and add information to the map.
Although more complete each day, OpenStreetMap project is still unfinished. You will therefore most probably find areas not mapped or even containing errors. The good new is that you can fill in these gaps yourself. If you want to join us, you can download our Beginners' guide from here. You'll discover how easy it is!
