Our family will be in Vancouver and Victoria from July 15 for a couple of weeks. Is there a source of maps for a Garmin (Oregon 400t) that can enhance the base maps? Thanks. Brian W.

Brian . Here is what I use for pretty much everything on my 450.

garmin.openstreetmap.nl/

you pick the areas you want, they compile the map and provide you with the links for download. It's based on openstreetmap, but it's easy and completely routeable.

cheers

Thanks, Real Gone - maps are excellent, just what we needed. We will be in Vancouver on Friday July 15, for a couple of weeks - looking forward to it. Thanks again. Brian.

What I use is the OSM maps, like stated in the above post, as well as the Northwest Trails maps layered on top. The OSM maps are pretty detailed, plus you get even more little trails from the NW Trails map.

Thank you both for your help. We did 47 caches yesterday, and are amazed at the map detail on the trails - a big help! Magicwebby.
