Free topo, trail and street maps for Garmin GPS handhelds, bike computers and wearables are an alternative to commercial maps! These OpenStreetMap based maps are free and available even for countries not covered by Garmin or other map providers.

The quality and level of detail varies from country to country. We have good experiences with maps from countries like Germany, Iceland, Finland and various eastern regions of Europe!

You can use these maps for Garmin devices like:

  • epix
  • fenix 5X
  • fenix 5 Plus series
  • eTrex Touch 25 / 35
  • eTrex 20 / 20x / 30 / 30x /22x / 32x
  • GPSMAP 62s / 62st / 64 / 64s / 64st / 64sc / 64x / 64sx / 64csx
  • GPSMAP 66 / 66st / 66i
  • Montana 600 / 610 / 680 / 680t
  • Oregon 600 / 650t / 700 / 750 / 750t
  • Edge bike computers with mapping (e.g. Edge 1030, Edge 830, Edge 530)
