Garmin GPS devices and open source maps

Post by rider5 » Mon Jan 16, 2017 1:36 am

Do any of you guys have a newer (c 2016) Garmin GPS device and use open source maps on it? Because if you do I've got some questions for you. Also if you use Mapsource or BaseCamp.

Why use a Garmin instead of an iPhone?
