      Yep!  I have my SD card.  Now I'm looking for the OSM US routable street maps for Garmin as one file.  I found a site that supposedly has a set to download, but when I click the link, the website is unavailable.  I'm working on downloading the torrent version now, but I've never done that, so we'll see what I get.

      I do not know the size of the open maps, but the garmin North America maps are just a hair under 2 GB That includes All USA, Canada, Mexico, and a couple of the US Territory islands. a 4GB or 8GB card perferably class 6 or better will be fine for any maps you would want.

      I'm going to load it into a GPS.  Since I can buy a chip with a whole map set, I don't see why I won't have the storage for it.  Maybe I'm wrong!  But I've had success with smaller map sets.  The web site I'm using won't let me generate the whole US, but I have a feeling they're out there.  Couldn't hurt to ask!

      Why do you want the whole US? That would be a huge amount of data. Do you even have the storage for it? How will you be using it?

      Does anyone have a complete US map from Open Streets Maps that they could load to the files of this group?  I haven't been successful getting a full set.  Does anybody have links or tips or ideas for me?

      Open Streets Maps are free routable maps available online, and I'm experimenting.  I was able to get Bermuda maps for our recent trip there, but getting the whole US has been a real challenge.
