Look on the map info page, such as this for example: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/111/

This map is hosted at GPSFileDepot and is free, as stated on that page

Quote
Country: United States
State: New York
Price: free

Now look at this one: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/754/

This map is not free and you must go to another website to download/pay for it.

Quote
Country: United States
State: Montana
Price: 99.99

So it totally depends on the specific map, and it should be clearly stated on the info page whether it is free.

Some of the onXmaps take you to amazon marketplace such as the one Boyd linked, those are not flagged as free.
