    Thought this might be helpful to those who have a Garmin and want to add the free improved open source maps available online

    You select the area you want maps for eg Kent, SE England and then downlod them onto your Garmin, takes a little patience and reading but easy enough. Very helpful if you are trying to navigate a course and the base maps arent good enough (such as thr ones on the Garmin 520)

    Enjoy
