MadMaps on Garmin??

I am currently working on mapping out a trip and noticed that MadMaps has maps for download with Garmin. Has anyone here downloaded any of these maps for there Garmin GPs and if so, any comments on them????

I haven't downloaded any Mad Maps, but I have used their paper maps. They do give a good selection of fun roads for a local area.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

From what I understand from others, the Mad Maps are frustrating to use on the Zumo. Apparently you cannot start the route from the middle or run it in reverse. For a more detailed look into this, check out http://www.zumoforums.com

got it

I got one the mad maps on the zumo.the thing I don't like is that it can only be down loaded on the gps,can not trasfer to comp. then when you need to find a route all you have is the name of the route,that's great if you are from the area,if you are like me I need to open every route to see which one works, so I would think the hard copy is much easyer to work with. my 2 cents
