GPSFileDepot – Like Unexpected Presents in the Mail

GPSFileDepot – Custom Maps, Ximage hosting, tutorials, articles and more for your GPSr.

Am I the last guy on earth to discover this gem of the intarwebs?  Folks, I just downloaded and installed the entire 900MB California Topo map to my Garmin GPS.  FREE.   And I didn’t have to contract the PC version of swine flu to download.  These are community created maps and they cover street level business as well.  The maps are all over the place, including some unique POI maps, trails and resource maps.  182 of them, in fact.

This has to be one of the top 10 sites for getting the most out of your GPS I have ever seen.  If you’re looking to improve your investment in a quality GPS, maps are the best way to do it.  If I could have leveraged these maps when I bought my current set I would have.  As it is, I saved quite a few bucks just on the California Topo map.  They’re my new heroes, at least until someone invents the transporter or a holodeck.
