Title: Backdoor into Garmin's collection of custom maps
Post by: dbperry on March 23, 2012, 09:02:56 AM
Goofing around on forums reading about custom maps, and I reverse engineered a link and was surprised to see this folder allows listing of contents:

http://www.garmindeveloper.com/apps/GarminCustomMaps/

You can download all of the KMZ files that Garmin has created directly from that link. I checked out a couple and they are pretty nice.

It is much easier to go directly to that link / folder than drill through all the forum postings in the forum below to find the same maps...

Perhaps this isn't the biggest hack in the world, and perhaps it has been discussed before, but perhaps someone will find it handy...
