This really should have been a separate thread, it has nothing to do with  Android tablets. :)

You didn't say what kind of computer you have. Anyway, go here and download either the Mac or Windows version of the free Basecamp program

Windows: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4435

or Mac: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4449

After installing the software, choose whatever maps look interesting. I have no personal experience with Wyoming maps, sorry

If you aren't sure which one to download, these are probably good bets

After downloading, follow this tutorial

Follow this tutorial to send the map to the GPS
