    From there, further updates are available from Garmin' website.

    Plan your next vacation or recreational outing with MapSource® United States Roads & Recreation CD-ROM.

    Features include:

    Trip and waypoint management functions**
    Local, county, residential roads, and interstates for all 50 states
    U.S. interstate exit information such as service stations, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, campsites, hospitals, banks, and more
    U.S. inland cartography with shoreline detail for lakes, reservoirs, rivers; icons indicating boat ramps, dams, marinas, public facilities, mile markers, and first-aid stations

    Spoiler: Hawaii Only
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Important note: Although only ~468MiB when extracted, the continental image contains 3,249 map segments [tiles] which well exceeds the 2025 limit of early Outdoor units. Newer ones can handle up to 4000. Both those limits include the segments in the basemap and other loaded detail maps enabled or not. Check your unit's specs as you may need to use the MS version to make a smaller image file to suit. Conversely, you can also combine the three image files to one with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Alaska and Hawaii have only 28 and 7 tiles each respectively

    Additional note: Custom Install version containing only 185 merged tiles is available in Post #17.

    I experimented with this download (two months after I got it) and came up with some interesting stuff when I used MapInstall and transferred the full map to the following units: Garmin Mobile XT (5.00.20w), a nüvi 200W, and a nüvi 1300LM.

    1. The map seems to work properly in Garmin Mobile XT. Tapping on the POI search button allows access to Man-made Places, Water Features, and Land Features, and allows navigation to those features without issue. However, the segment limitation on Garmin products requires combining the map segments into larger chunks for use on Garmin Mobile XT, similar to the procedure used for combining topographic maps.
    2. The map does seem to display in reasonably current units such as the 200W and 1300LM. However, it is impossible to route with either unit and none of the built-in POIs (man-made places, water features, and land features) are accessible. This may have to do with the segment limit, since the full map is over 3,000 segments.
    3. This is obvious, but the roads have changed dramatically between 1999 and now. Yet as promised, this is a fantastic resource. The only minor drawback is that it requires MapSource. Basecamp cannot see the map.

    I totally forgot about this. As an update, I figured out how to get BaseCamp to see the Roads and Recreation maps. It involved editing the registry, the edits which I provide [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Does anyone have a link that works? I had this program on my Vista machine which crashed and the program was unrecoverable. I have since upgraded to Windows 8 and cannot find a working link for this. I use the program a lot to find hidden gems that are not available in todays software. Thanks in advance.

    You have to navigate to get to the good.

    I really do, if you don't mind as it is almost impossible to locate anymore. : ) I know it seems strange to want such an old map, but Roads and Recreation actually often has better detail on things like lakes/seasonal streams/trails/etc. for backcountry ADV exploring that is simply missing from the newer Garmin topo maps.

    I agree, it's superior in some details. Upload in progress, stand by for an hour or so.

    EDIT: Done, new link for MS version in initial post. I'll upload the 3 individual images as well.
