'Fraid not.  You need a routable map, like City Navigator NT.

Nope, it's not free.  Try Amazon.com.  Buy the full DVD, not the DVD upgrade.  It will be locked to your GPSr.  You will only be able to load maps from the DVD to the GPSr you lock it to.

That is one reason why you might consider buying the version that comes on a memory card instead. You can use it on any GPS - but only one at a time (card is copy protected). You can also access the maps on your computer if you use the card with BaseCamp.

Another option would be to buy Garmin's 24k topo maps for your area. They also have address search and routing, like City Navigator.
