    Hi there.
    Im new to more advanced gps units and am having some problems with my new (second hand) Zumo 660 regarding too maps.
    1. When I try to download the Tracks4Australia for MAC Im redirected to a website Hightail but can't download it. Are there any other steps I need to take?
    2. Is there a program that lets me convert my Ozieexplorer maps into Garmin friendly ones?
    3. Is there any difference between Garmins too map set ($180) Vs the Oz too maps ($249)

    Thanks in advance.

    Not a mac person. Don't know.
    Short answer .. no. Or yes.. if your device can use/display raster maps. Not all Garmin devices can do this. Then the question of your Oziexplorer files ... what format are they in? If in .jpg .bmp .ecw etc then ok - they are easy to convert to other formats. .ozf2 forget it.
    Probably.

    ----------------
    Track4 Australia does not have contours
    Shonkylogic ones do
    Tried OSM? Free ... and you can get it in a format that gives you a file to copy across to your GPS ... avoiding the computer compatibility problems.
