This file has been confirmed to work on a Garmin Montana 600 GPS, however performance was poor. The Montana 600 is about 9 years old however, so performance may be better on newer devices. To use this map on your GPS, simply copy the file to your CustomMaps folder (which is found inside the Garmin folder). Due to the large number of tiles, this map will only be compatible with the Garmin GPSMap 64 series, Montana series, Alpha 100, Monterra and Oregon 600 GPS units.
For some reason, the map does not properly display in Garmin Basecamp.
This map is a preview of “work in progress” on a new topo that covers the entire Southern New Jersey region and will be released later this summer.
