Gps maps

Just ordered a Garmin Oregon 600...


I want good topos on it...

Issue is I kinda refuse to spend $100 on maps...

Gotta be a better option?


All I need is the western half of PA....all of PA and eastern Ohio would be awesome...


Any options??? Thats my other issue...to get Ohio I need a 2nd package if I bought them....



Thanx!

Re: Gps maps

i used these.

that said, i found that they were not accurate with regards to roads in the state forest. creeks seemed good but some roads were way off.

Re: Gps maps

I, like Mauser bought a new GPS - a Garmin 64ST. I find 100 bucks for a map a bit pricey too, but i'm not refusing it as I really only need PA. I'm interested in other options too.

Re: Gps maps

Just find someone who has the maps CD, and give them your micro SD card d and they can load them on it for you
