Thanks for these links and all the info!
It took me a while, I think there were just to many options! But I finally got everything working on my HTC. (SA Street maps and TOPO)
One quick question though, I'm running Garmin Mobile XT v5.00.20w - is there any benifit in trying to get a newer version working on my phone?
Also, what is the difference between the TOPO and the DEM maps? I'll be hiking in the mountains (Drakensberg) soon, and need the best possible navigation incase we get lost again :D
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME

Garmin Mobile XT v5.00.20w is the last official version for WM
A digital elevation model (DEM) is a digital representation of ground surface topography or terrain. A DEM implies that elevation is available continuously at each location in the area.
A DEM map is a topo map. more infos here

Thanks so much catymag!
So I'm assuming (being new to this) that the hiking trails map acts like a stencle over another map (topo or DEM etc.)?
Really, thank you so much, I've been looking for something like this for ages!
ps just read some of the posts on the hiking trails link - kudos to SakCyb (Johan Cloete) for compiling that map! Much respect! Keep up the good work!
Many thanks for adding the links to the garmap site, i'd not come across that one before.
Hi i'm new to this whole modifying/editing/upgrading ur garmin on ur own...
i am buying the 1310 today - Game has it on special for R1499... wud this have the latest latest maps? wat modifications could i make to it?
A bit late I know, but i dont suppose anyone has the GMAPSUPP.IMG for these maps ?
You can make your own gmapsupp.img by installing Mapsource and generate it there
yeah I know, I was just being lazy, that and the fact that even using jdownloader (Which I do anyway), I am having problems ...
I should install Mapsource anyway (Which I have not done)
