The new Ontario GPS sled maps are out now at http://www.gpssledmaps.com/ all districts, and don't need mapsource to use.

Thanks for the information. I downloaded them onto my Garmin 260W and they are all there. Just beware that there are two sets of instructions when you get to step 6. For some GPS models you skip to step 8, for others you don't. Thanks again.

Just uploaded my Garmin 330 Street pilot (needed extra memory card ) and my Garmin 750.
Looks great but the best trails in the area (Mactier, Woods Bay) are not included.

Anybody know how to get them included?

Tried them out this weekend, the trails look great on the 750, tons of detail, ya just can't get lost!
I am trying to figure out this upload thing, it will be a while.

can anyone recommend an affordable GPS model that can be mounted (don't really want a hand held) that can accept these maps ??
I heard the Garmin 276c is great, but that model has been discontinued.

I just downloaded the maps to my Garmin Nuvi 265W after a few tries. All the maps are there so far. Haven't tried the unit yet but will this weekend.

The Garmin Nuvis are coming way down, especially last year's edition. ($150). My 750 will record tracks.

The map is the same in most models, you pay extra for features that you won't need on the sled.

The mounts for handle bars are available at most Bass Outdoor Stores.

Garmin Nuvis not recommended to snowmobile mount (ie. not waterproof). What has your experience been?

Just tried to use my Nuvi 265 with the sled maps. The main trails are shown including the feeder trail system but NO local trails. Still need the local trail maps for the area you are sledding in. The GPS maps would be more useful with local club trails mapped. Disappointed outcome.
