I haven't used connect.garmin, but it sounds like it is pretty much the same deal as the program I am using.

You can download map source off of gpsfiledepot.com

yeh connect is great, after the rescue party finds you and you finally get home you can plug in your gps do an upload and see where you actually where, when you swore the parking lot was just over this hill.

yeh my GPS points due west and tells me it is 54 degrees. Of course no directions on how to calibrate compass, maybe I have to be moving to get an actual reading. Hey it's great for telling me where I was all day once I get home, but so far worthless on telling me how to find the house.

Joe, call Garmin. They are the nicest people to deal with and are more than happy to walk you through steps on how to use your particular Garmin. Ask them and they will tell you! None of that "I can only help you for 10 minutes" baloney and there is not charge to talk to them.

I have learned how to do all kinds of stuff on my own but learned a ton from them or my friend called them and she learned from them and taught me.

Give it a whirl and start enjoying that Garmin!
