I have the BEST FIND EVER!!! FREE Garmin Topo's & other
I did say free FREE FREE!
I am so excited I downloaded it and uploaded the map to mapsource and already installed it on my GPS while I was on Lunch! I walked outside and it picked up the Conway area great! I can post some screen shots later when I remember how, but right now I am completely happy with this find! The street names are a little hard to read, but you can hover over them and it will "pop up" on the screen. I mainly wanted this for offroad caching and now I have it! WooT!
Anyway, I'll try it out on my drive home and see how it works. It was super easy to install, I just clicked download, then I went to where I downloaded it on my pc, clicked the install, and pointed it to where I wanted it to save the image files (my garmin folder), and then waited for it to install. After that I opened mapsource and selected Arkansas Topo in the drop down box:) Then I selected the areas of AR I wanted to laod and Boom! It was that Easy!!!!

Where is this mysterious site? Why it is here:
All of the states "user created" maps
and last but not least road maps (equivalent to city nav)
