Free worldwide Garmin maps from OpenStreetMap

Free worldwide Garmin maps from OpenStreetMap
Do you appreciate this service? OpenStreetMap creates and provides free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have severe legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive, or unexpected ways. One of such productive uses of OpenStreetMap data are free maps for Garmin GPS devices as is the case of this website. OpenStreetMap data and the maps from this site are available for free. But OpenStreetMap totally relies on the input of it's users, so please consider contributing GPS traces or by mapping your surroundings if you find this service useful.
